Here's an interesting pair of double-features at the late, great Tri-City Twin Drive-in, from April of 1968. PSYCH-OUT (1968) was Richard Rush's summer of love psychedelic exploitation with Nicholson. THE GLORY STOMPERS (1968) was the entertainingly square biker flick, with Dennis Hopper and a killer Davie Allan score; a DVD release is badly needed on this one. THE BIBLE (1966) was John Huston's Italian/American adaptation, with Michael Parks as Adam (!). NATURE'S HALF ACRE (1951) was a Disney short documentary on the birds and bees.

Today we examine a July, 1968 triple-feature at the Turnpike Drive-in. THE PRIVATE NAVY OF SGT. O'FARRELL (1968) was a World War II-based Bob Hope comedy. THE PENTHOUSE (1967) was a British thriller with Suzy Kendall and Martine Beswick; never released to home video, it's only available as a bootleg. THE HILLS RUN RED was United Artists' release of the Italian western Un Fiume di dollari (1966), with Henry Silva and Dan Duryea.
