Movie Clip

Omega Man, The (1971) -- (Movie Clip) There's Never A Cop Around Everything’s cool as Charlton Heston cruises downtown LA, which we soon realize is improbably vacant, Boris Sagal directing, in the second movie version of Richard Matheson’s novel I Am Legend, The Omega Man, 1971, co-starring Rosalind Cash and Anthony Zerbe.
Another Son Of Sam (1977) -- (Movie Clip) Open, A Small Town Something approaching a false promise, text recounting selected mass murders, especially the then-current New York “Son Of Sam” case, which is never mentioned in the film that follows, the opening presumably along the Catawba river around Belmont and Charlotte NC, where the low-rent slasher feature was shot, from Another Son Of Sam, 1977.
Another Son Of Sam (1977) -- (Movie Clip) We Still Had To Sedate Him The actors are mostly local (Charlotte, NC) TV news talent, though the orderly really is a guy named Cely, escorting the deranged will-be killer, to Cynthia Stuart as Dr. Ellis, taking a call from her cop boyfriend (weatherman Russ Dubuc), with maybe clever banter, which is about how it goes, in the micro-budget slasher title Another Son Of Sam, 1977.
King Of Jazz (1930) -- (Movie Clip) Paul Whiteman's Scrapbook Opening the Universal two-strip Technicolor musical revue, starring bandleader Paul Whiteman and his wildly popular orchestra, Charles Irwin the announcer, winds up introducing what was the first-ever Technicolor cartoon, by Walter Lantz, later known for Woody Woodpecker, with some now-dated attitudes, in King Of Jazz, 1930.
Crazed Fruit (1956) -- (Movie Clip) Opening, It's A Total Bore Opening credits and the introduction of innocent brother Haruji (Masahiko Tsugawa) and more experienced Natsuhisa (Yujiro Ishihara) in director Ko Nakahira's Crazed Fruit, 1956.

Omega Man, The (1971) -- (Movie Clip) Honky Paradise We’re learning details about Neville (Charlton Heston), who’s killed some mutant nocturnal albino marauders, switched on his generator and now relaxes in his post-apocalypse Downtown L-A pad, while Mathias (Anthony Zerbe), leader of the bad guys, grumbles outside, early in The Omega Man, 1971, from Richard Matheson’s novel I Am Legend.
Omega Man, The (1971) -- (Movie Clip) The Very Foundations Of Civilization This is where we realize that Matthias (Anthony Zerbe), leader of the bloodthirsty nocturnal hooded cult that dominates post-apocalypse Los Angeles, is the news anchor we saw in an earlier flashback, plus backstory on their nemesis, the lone normal survivor, Charlton Heston as colonel and doctor Neville, in The Omega Man, 1971.
Destination Moon (1950) -- (Movie Clip) Only American Industry Ending the Walter Lantz-Woody Woodpecker cartoon they've cleverly had made to support their case for a privately-funded moon mission, industrialist Barnes (John Archer) lets General Thayer (Tom Powers) bring home the point to a gathering of investors, in George Pal's Destination Moon, 1950.
L'Atalante (1934) -- (Movie Clip) All I Have Left Of Him Not exactly threatening but unsettling at least, young French bride Juliette (Dita Parlo) exploring the river-barge cabin inhabited by her new husband's sole employee, engineer Jules (Michel Simon), early in director Jean Vigo's L'Atalante, 1934.
