I have GOT to get around to seeing this film...I'm still bummed Corman won't get his award on the actual telecast - can you imagine a montage of clips of his stuff during the show?
I didn't think it would make the cut, but I always love the scenes in this one in the "office" where the paint on the sets is not only still wet, but visibly RUNNING from the windowpanes. Classic Corman economy, that. :)
SPOILERWhat a great film this was. I like that comment Stephen King made in his book written on horror films in the 80s that he imagined the final line of the film after Milland rips his eyes out of his head was a screamed "I can still see!"
Thanks Bob, I really hate that his award is not part of the broadcast cermony. It really bums me out and es that montage would have been incredible. Thanks Vicar, I had totally forgot about that...it makes me love the film even more. Thanks Colin, That never seen moment at the end really haunts me...it would have been perfect (but as it stands the ending here is pretty fabulous as well).
Colin, you stole my comment! Ha. Cool movie, altho' I like my Ray Milland drunk and having the DT's!(PS: when is King gonna write his followup?)
