Albany's Turnpike Drive-in screened what must have been a LONG night at the movies back on March, 1968. Be sure to pick up the deluxe DVD of the Eli Wallach tour-de-force THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY (1968) with deleted scenes integrated back into the film. THE WICKED DREAMS OF PAULA SCHULTZ (1968) was a Cold War comedy with Elke Sommer and Bob Crane; no DVD yet. THE ST. VALENTINE'S DAY MASSACRE (1967) was Roger Corman's star-studded gangster picture.

Awesome ad for the screening of GOLIATH AND THE BARBARIANS at Proctor's in Schenectady from January, 1960. It was AIP's US release of the Italian peplum Il Terrore dei barbari (1959), with the great Steve Reeves. No US DVD release, though it is on Region 2 DVD from Warner.

Softcore double-feature from July, 1971 at Raleigh's Center Drive-in. THE GOLDEN BOX (1970) was directed by Don Davis and featured Marsha Jordan and Ann Myers. PLEASURE PLANTATION (1970) featured Kim Pope and Linda Boyce. The ad claims they were made in North Carolina, but were likely made in (respectively) L.A. and NYC. Something Weird carries both titles on VHS and DVD-R.

Raleigh's great Center Drive-in screened this double-feature in March, 1968. THE GLORY STOMPERS (1968) was a cool, if corny, biker flick; star Dennis Hopper (whose heavy methoding clashed with the old-fashioned acting of the teeth-gritting variety his fellow stars perfed) claims to have directed much of it; THE CHRISTMAS KID (1967) was a Spanish/American western directed by Sid Pink of THE ANGRY RED PLANET fame. No DVD on either title.
