I don't know if anyone has already mentioned this so forgive me if they have - but Turner Classic Movies will be showing Hammer films starring Sir Christopher and other great actors all through October on Friday nights! I was thrilled to read this since his Hammer films are rarely shown where I can see them.

Re: Hammer Films On TCM

I saw that "The Gorgon" is coming up on TCM this Friday very late, and since I'm a night-owl, I'll be geared to record it... Cheers...

Re: Hammer Films On TCM

I wish TCM would get a copy and air Karloff and Lee in a 1958 film called: "Corridors of Blood." I used to have it on video back in the late 1980s, but it got lost during a move to Illinois somewhere around 1999... I have never seen a TV listing for it ever since the night I recorded it back 20+ years ago...

Re: Hammer Films On TCM

I have found out recently that TCM in the States and TCM in Britain are a tad bit different... America's TCM with host Robert Osborne is tops... Osborne is the main man on film knowledge... TCM rules...

 

I gave up on AMC back around 2002... It was around that time they brought in commercials, etc... I despise commercials and stupid, paid advertisements when I'm watching a classic film... ARGH!

Re: Hammer Films On TCM

I am watching / taping "The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb" from 1964... I like Ol' Fred Clark, he was a great character actor.. Clark died in 1968 at age 54 from a liver ailment... George Pastell was great as an Egyptian priest....

Re: Hammer Films On TCM

I thought  "The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb" was pretty good... Fred Clark and Nino "George" Pastell really made the film worth my time and effort... I taped it as it aired last week on TCM...

I gotta get that "Frankenstein" flick from 1957 or so with Lee and Cushing... I think it airs on TCM this Friday night in the USA... I gotta check my listing schedule... I saw it yrs ago, and I wasn't impressed back then, but I'll give it another go here soon... Nothing tops 'Karloff' as the monster....

Re: Hammer Films On TCM

I have several (7) movies slated to record over the weekend on TCM.. Mainly Bela Lugosi, Lee and Cushing stuff, but some Lionel Atwill and Lionel Barrymore films too... TCM has 48 hours of good horror going on from Friday thru Sunday...

Re: Hammer Films On TCM

I have really enjoyed the Hammer Films on TCM this month, plus all the other great black & white horror films they're showing. What a wonderful Halloween! I have to say, Sir Christopher looked a bit like a Beatle as the Frankenstein Creature with the black bowl cut:) On a related topic, I watched Peter Cushing's episode in the Tales From The Crypt film and his portrayal of dear Mr. Grimsdyke brought a tear to my eye. He was an excellent actor!

Re: Hammer Films On TCM

I thought Christopher Lee as the frankenstein creature was very sad my self I agree about the hair cut. It has been a really good great Halloween month thanks to TCM. Peter Cushing has allways been outstanding.

Same here. I'm a fan of old

Same here. I'm a fan of old flicks. They are way interesting although the effects were not so good before. But the original are still the best.
