  3. Comment for Gary

    Gary, wonderful article about a movie I don't actually remember very well -- probably because I first saw it at age 17 in a theatre here in town called Middle Earth. It was an old theatre, run by a few hippie entrepreneurs, all the seats had been removed, everybody brought blankets, cheap wine and lots of weed. The air was blue with pot smoke, and even if you didn't actually have any of your own, you could still enjoy it just by breathing! Can you imagine that happening today? Everybody would have been arrested and thrown in jail for 10 years!

    Anyway, that is actually the best way to watch this Corman flick. Everybody could totally relate, all the adults incapacitated after 25 ("Never trust anybody over 30" was the motto of the day), young people making their own lives. Corman really picked up on the era and took it to extreme lengths! I loved Edgar Allen and the raven! And what a cast of young up-and-comings!

    I really enjoyed this trip (no pun intended) into my first year of college and the fun I had with this. (At least I think I did -- perhaps I'm like Gracie Slick. When somebody asked her if she had enjoyed the 60's, she just said "I don't remember.") Cheap wine and maryjane do not make for the clearest memories. LOL! Excellent review, Gary!


    I appreciate your help with this, Nate. I think the blogathon is turning out to be a lot of fun!
