WE'RE ABOUT TO LOSE OUR SCARY MOVIE MONTH LEASE! EVERY 7-WORD REVIEW MUST GO! :-)James Whale's BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935, 75 min.) on Turner Classic Movies.Free copy with every Hot Topic purchase.orUna O'Connor steals every scene she's in.
Joseph Zito's THE PROWLER (1981, 89 min.) on VUDU for the first time.Excellent Savini gore gags punctuate dull slasher.orSo, Farley Granger, no life after Hitchcock?
I just found an Italian film he was in on Amazon Prime. It is called Something Creeping In The Dark. Only fifteen minutes in was enough for me. The Prowler is far more watchable. Still, he did make a couple of entertaining films while he was in Italy.
Farley Granger, the real-life Rick Dalton. :-)
There are a few other actors that come to mind as a potential inspiration for Rick Dalton: Lee Van Cleef, Henry Silva, Cameron Mitchell, and Mark Damon. Everyone of them had achieved some modest success in America before going to Europe. In the case of Van Cleef and Silva, they achieved a bigger stardom in Italy than they did back home.
