The Cobalt Club Screening Room

Post by Space Cadet on 4/16/2013, 10:19 pm

Yes, we love OTR, but many of us also enjoy other media from the Golden Age. So, I thought that some of you might just enjoy a classic movie or twenty. Here's where you'll find those little treasures. All available from free streaming sites (mostly Youtube).

Feel free to link your own favorite treasures here as well. Just remember that we still work at keeping the "Black Hats" at bay. Anything linked here must be in public domain.

The Invisible Ray

Post by Space Cadet on 4/20/2013, 11:34 am

Well, it was only a matter of time before a character who calls himself Space Cadet got around to linking some cool old sci-fi. My question is this, was this theory stolen by or from E.E. Smith? It was heavily used in both the Lensman and Skylark series'.

Enjoy,
Space

The Invisible Ray (1936)

Starring Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi.

The Night America Trembled

Post by Space Cadet on 4/20/2013, 1:51 pm

All right, this isn't a movie. But it's definitely something of interest for many OTR fans. A docudrama done by Westinghouse Studio One in 1957, of the night of the Mercury Theater's broadcast of War of the World's. With an introduction by Edward R. Murrow.

The Night America Trembled (1957) (Westinghouse Studio One)



And here we have Orson Welles' press conference concerning confusion caused by the War of the Worlds broadcast.

Ah! I'd downloaded that from archive.org ages ago and then promptly forgotten all about it. Thanks for the reminder, Space! I think I'll be watching this soon...

When the police in a German city are unable to catch a child-murderer, other criminals join in the manhunt.



And another silent classic:

The variety that can be found on the free streaming services constantly amazes me. And all you need is a decent bandwidth stream to get it all. I've thrown a lot of these on my 60" tv with a darned good resulting quality too.

Another Saturday Night

Post by Space Cadet on 5/4/2013, 7:32 pm

Yup, it's another Saturday night and your ol' pal Space Cadet has been trollin' the waste spaces for entertainment. Oddly enough, I've found some entertainment and yup, it might be just a bit odd. Up first, for the boys and girls from the L-7 Ranch, here's:

Ma & Pa Kettle Back On the Farm




And a bit of a rarity here, The Three Stooges in their first feature length film:

Rockin' the Rockies



Ya'll Have Fun,

I thought it might be fun to resurrect this thread. I'll add a few tidbits here from time to time, as the mood strikes me. Starting with a personal favorite:

Pot o' Gold (1941)

With James Stewart and Paulette Godard.

Just watched a horrendous Charlie Chan starring Peter Utisnov. It was so bad it was not watchable. I usually like bad movies this was a stinker.

I saw that one too, Seamus. It gives new meaning to the word "egregious."

Aww.. Ya know how I am. The stinkier the better. Plan 9, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes... I just sit there and giggle.

I once watched The Lost Skeleton of Cadavera just to count how many times the boom mike made it into the frame.

Yeah, but *The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra* was SUPPOSED to be bad. It's one of the most brilliant parodies of the B-picture I've ever seen.
I still keep it on my Classics Shelf in the Vault.
Jeff (Did you notice the boom mike hovering over my head as I wrote that? And BTW: Space, if you haven't seen *Black Dynamite* do yourself a favor and luxuriate in that one--"I'm the one in charge sarcastically.")

Yup, I remember when Skeleton was released. Way back in the rent it from Blockbuster days. I did!

Black Dynamite??? Would that be another Troma classic?

No, it's a wonderful send-up of Blaxploitation films of the '70s. It was released just a couple years ago, and then the guys who did *Boondocks* turned it into an adult cartoon that's now available on Youtube and DVD. Watch the movie first--it's hysterical.

Nothing to do with OTR, but a fun spoof on a tune from those days, and educational. ;-)
