GABRIELLA, etc.


January, 1974 adult triple-feature at Raleigh's Center Drive-in...GABRIELLA (1972) was the softcore movie later re-edited into CLASS OF '74; Johnny Legend says this earlier version was never released theatrically but I guess he was wrong; Something Weird has it on VHS and DVD-R, and the later version is available on bootleg labels. SUGAR COOKIES (1973) was the NYC-shot adult horror film with Mary Woronov and Lynn Lowry. Can't find any info on 3 FOR A PARTY.

FREAKS, etc.


Wild triple-feature from January, 1971, which screened at Proctor's in Schenectady and the Oxford in North Troy. One for the heads, I guess. Wonder how the print for FREAKS (1932) looked? NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968) is available on about a million labels, but I think the Elite version is the one to go with. Funny misprint for Buñuel's Un chien andalou (1929).
