"Vie Vulture" (1967) Akim
Tamiroff, Robert Hutton
Reliable old character actor Akim
(he played Pablo in "For Whom the
Bell Tolls") takes an old vulture
carcass, zaps it with some isotopes
and, whammo, he becomes a giant
vulture with an Akim Tamiroff head.
"Highway Patrol" star Broderick
Crawford defies logic by playing an
English squire who gets carried off
in Akim's talons. I'm watching it for
Robert Hutton, star of great junk
like "The Slime People," "Invisible
Invaders" and "Man Without a Body."
Thursday, 1:05 a.m., Show

"House" (1986) William
Katt, Kay Lenz
A writer's son has disappeared,
his marriage is on the rocks, and to
top it off he's a Vietnam vet having
flashbacks that feature the big skin
head guy from "Night Court"! He
moves into a big house where float
ing garden tools chase him and a
stuffed and mounted swordfish has
epileptic fits. Kay Lenz, queen of
low-budget films, shows up and, for
the first time in her career, doesn't
take off all her clothes. Instead
(because of the flashbacks) she
turns into a hulking creature that
the Greatest American Hero fills
full of buckshot. A boffo box-office
bomb in 1986.
Friday, 11 p.m. and 3 a.m.,
"Dementia 13, " (1963) Wil
liam Campbell, Luana Anders
One of the first works by Francis
Ford Coppola and a good example of
scary, low-budget filmmakng. A dead
guy and his transistor radio are
pushed in a lake where his sub
merged radio gurgles obnoxious rock
music. A woman is pulled into the
same pond by a corpse and an ax
murdering brother keeps his sis
ter's dead body in a beaver dam. The
psychological aspects of the flick
are a bit labored but there are some
really frightening scenes. Well worth
V . .

"Armored Attack" (1943)
Dana Andrews, Walter Huston
What is really interesting here is
what you won Y see in the film. An
unusual WWII film originally titled
"The North Star," wherein Soviet
peasants battle Erich Von Stroheim
and his Nazi cohorts. After the
film's release some schmucks
decided to chop all the complimen
tary references to the Soviets and
tacked on an ending saying they
were all a bunch of weasels. God
Bless America. Another controver
sial film written by blacklisted wri
ter Lillian Hellman, who is the sub
ject of the film "Julia" (1977). Great
cast includes Walter Huston, Dana
Andrews and Martin Kosleck play
ing a Nazi for the billionth time.
Friday, 3 a.m., WGN, ch. 2
' 'Star ship Invasions "(1977)
Robert Vaughn, Christopher
A real cheapo with the great Man
from U.N.C.L.E. starring as a UFO
expert who tries to defeat a bunch
of aliens. Christopher Lee shows up
feeling depressed beccause his
planet's race is dying out, and
embarrassed because he has to
wear a big cone on his head. To this
day, an experience Mr. Lee doesn't
relish talking about.

1 'Curse of the Vampire"
(Italy, 1960) Walter Brandt
Now, if I were a bigTV Guide exec
I'd make'em print the real title of
this film in the listings: "The Play
girls and the Vampire." It's getting
more interesting already, isn't it?
It's a masterpiece of badly dubbed
Italian vampire-playgirl cinema. A
group of dancers on a bus get
stranded at an old castle where they
are terrorized by a vampire. Usually
the dancers run around in skimpy
nightgowns and go "eek!" A sleazy
guy goes to bed with his favorite
girlie magazine, "Frolic," on his pil
low and is promptly attacked by a
naked vampire woman. She's not
really in the buff, though. It's always
a shot of her bare legs. Even the
s . i p
.' . .c.
most imaginative (and lonesome)
male viewer won't be drooling. None
theless, a bizarre film experience,
though it can't come close to Com
mander USA's Mexican mad doctor
wrestling women films.

"The Story of Mankind"
(1957) Vincent Price, Ronald
Director Irwin Allen has made
films with universal themes like a)
a boat tipping over ("The Posiedon
Adventure") b) a big building full of
movie stars catching on fire, ("The
Towering Inferno") and c) Holly
wood's finest mercilessly stung to
death by angry bees ("The Swarm").
In this '57 classic Allen (apparently
under the influence of some pretty
disorienting drugs) assembles some
famous old stars (Colman, the Marx
Brothers, Hedy Lamarr) and some
up-and-coming stars, and proceeds
to indulge in an appallingly bad his
tory of humanity. Weird casting
abounds. How about Hedy Lamarr as
Joan- of Arc? Dennis Hopper as
Napoleon? Harpo Marx as Sir Issac
Newton? Chico as a monk? Peter
Lorre as Nero? And finally my favor
ite, John Carradine as Kufu, a skinny
Egyptian dude in a Shriner's hat.
Suffice it to say, humankind was not
pleased with Irwin's story.
Boris Karlcff Weekend
If you're up Saturday and Sunday
morning for some strange reason
and you're feeling pretty odd, you
can watch two, count 'em, two films
where Boris Karloff (a British guy
with a lisp) puts on body paint and a
wig and tries to be an American
Indian! It's purely for the novelty of
the experience. Watch for 10 min
utes, then turn over to something;
worthwhile. On Saturday at 10 a.m.
on WTBS, ch. 4, Boris plays Tish
. mongo in "Tap Roots" (1948). On
Sunday, right before church, at 9:30
a.m. on WTBS, in "Unconquered "
an interminable bore from Cecil B.
Demille, Boris plays gruff but lova
ble Chief Guycsuta. : "
