horror movies on cable

I am glad that Comcast Cable in New Haven shows a lot of vintage horror movies in prime time. Last night the listings showed Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein. They even gave Frankenstein four stars. Recognition at last.

This is a true story. I was talking to a co-worker, a 25 year old woman. When I mentioned Boris Karloff, she asked me who that was. I said, meaning to be sarcastic, "I suppose you never heard of Bela Lugosi either!"
She hadn't.
Sheesh! People who don't recognize the name Bela Lugosi are still making fun of his Hungarian accent. "I vant to drink your blood!"

When my high school teacher saw that I was reading Dracula, by Bram Stoker, she told me I was reading cheap popular trash. (This was back in the 1970s). There is a new edition out of the novel, a Signet Classic, and it has "Signet Classic" right on the front cover. I wish I could get in a time machine and go back and show it to that teacher. "See? I told you it was a classic."
