Today it's a double-feature at the immortal Center Drive-in, from March, 1971. THE MIDNIGHT GRADUATE (1970) was a Grads release featuring Uschi Digard; it's considered lost, though a trailer can be found on Twisted Sex Vol. 9. I'm guessing THE EXECUTIONER was the 1970 British espionage film with George Peppard and Joan Collins; it had a VHS release, but no DVD yet.

Two ad mats from a naughty July, 1971 screening at the Center Drive-in. MELISSA: THE TOTAL FEMALE (1970) was a Canyon release; on VHS and DVD-R from Something Weird. THAR SHE BLOWS (1969) was an EVI release with Stuart Lancaster and John Alderman. THE EROTIC CIRCUS (1969) was directed by Ronald Sullivan/Henri Pachard; doesn't look like it ever got a home release. WHAT'S UP FRONT (1964) was a bra salesman comedy from the Arch Hall/Fairway family; there was a Rhino VHS release, but no DVD yet.

AIP double-feature at the State, from February, 1968: MARYJANE (1968) was the grass exposé starring Fabian; THE MILLION EYES OF SU-MURU (1967) was a British action/spy flick starring Frankie Avalon. Don't think either film ever even got VHS releases, but they're available from bottleggers.

Coxsackie, NY's Hi-Way Drive-in screened this Euro horror double-feature back in May, 1972. MARK OF THE DEVIL was Hallmark's infamous release of the West German Hexen bis aufs Blut gequält (1970), with Herbert Lom, Udo Kier, and Reggie Nalder; SCREAM AND SCREAM AGAIN (1970) was the British flick with Vincent Price, Christopher Lee, and Peter Cushing.

The very first theater-going experience I remember took place at the Oxford in Troy, NY's Lansingburgh district; I think it was a Pippi Longstocking movie. I just remember a rear aerial shot of a kid or kids running through a field. There's a bank there now. Anyway, the Oxford here screens Joe Sarno's MARCY (1969), with Linda Boyce and Alex Mann, in January, 1971. The film is currently lost, but the trailer can be found on Something Weird's FLESH AND LACE/PASSION IN HOT HOLLOWS DVD.

The Turnpike Drive-in screened the foreign triple-feature back in July, 1960. I'm assuming, perhaps incorrectly, this MAGDALENA is the 1955 Mexican production directed by Joaquín Pardavé. CRAZY FOR LOVE was Ellis Films' release of the French Le Trou normand (1952), with Brigitte Bardot. The British TREAD SOFTLY STRANGER (1958) starred Diana Dors. No DVD release known for any of them.
