Interesting pair of triple-features at the Tri-City Twin, from July, 1968. THE PRESIDENT'S ANALYST (1967; interesting spelling there) was the unique and of-its-time James Coburn vehicle. THE OLDEST PROFESSION was the Goldstone Film Enterprises release of the European anthology Le Plus vieux métier du monde (1967); no DVD release. WILL PENNY (1968) was a western featuring a great cast (Charlton Heston, Donald Pleasence, Lee Majors, Bruce Dern, Ben Johnson, Slim Pickens, Anthony Zerbe, Luke Askew). THE HAPPENING (1967, no "s") was a Columbia hippies-vs.-mafia comedy featuring Anthony Quinn and Michael Parks; doesn't seem to have ever gotten a home video release. WILD IN THE STREETS (1968) was the Robert Thom-scripted, caustic counterculture classic from AIP. FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE (1965) was the middle film in the Leone/Eastwood trilogy.

SATAN IN HIGH HEELS (1962) was a low-budget noir known for its Mundell Lowe crime jazz soundtrack.
