New York’s Film Forum has an incredible roster coming up. Their William Castle tribute includes not just the usual gimmick pictures — The Tingler (1959), 13 Ghosts (1960, which my daughter and I saw last night at the Carolina Theater in Durham), etc. — but new 35mm prints of three of the terrific The Whistler films and his three 3-D pictures.
But the real treat (to me, at least) is a batch of 3-D Westerns, including Randolph Scott in The Stranger Wore A Gun (1953), directed by Andre De Toth. I love all six of the De Toth Scotts, but haven’t had a chance to see Stranger in 3-D.
You can get a handy PDF of the entire Summer/Fall schedule here. I snagged bits and pieces of it for this post. You might want to laminate it — that way, all the drool won’t hurt it.
A big fat thanks to Stephen Bowie of The Classic TV History Blog for hipping me to all this 50s Western wonderful-ness. Be sure to check out his Thought Of The Day.
