And in response to the above picture, several months ago I went to a screening of The Day the Earth Stood Still and met Patrica Neal.
How exciting! I adore that woman.

I couldn't agree more. I think that film more than any other helped me to understand what I wanted to write. See? It doesn't have to be pulp. Horror can be art.

One of my very favorite black and white films was " Black Sunday" those eyes of Barbara Steele creeped me out. One of Mario Bava's best.

The Tingler was another one that I loved with Vincent Price

Experiment In Terror with Lee Remic ,and Ross Martin was superb as the villan

Lady In A Cage with Olivia DeHaveland

Whatever Haappened To Baby Jane? with Betty Davis

Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte with Betty Davis

Psycho


*just a few of my favorites* :)

All fine choices. Yes, "Black Sabbath" is superb. So is "Black Sunday." (And I admit, I sort of get them confused. One is the story about the witch. One is the trilogy with the amazing vampire story at the end.)

I've always thought Barbara Steele was one the most extraordinary visions in horror films. Those eyes ...



Love the Davis films as well, though never a fan of "Lady in a Cage." (Such a mean spirited film.) Much prefer "Die, Die, My Darling."

I like Black Sabbath very much. Really creepy. I have it ordered on DVD and is to come out soon.

Barbara Steele.....simply fantastic! And those eyes!

Mine too!

I just got Experiment in Terror - Great film. I remember Ross Martin from The Wild Wild West!

The Tingler was on TCM the other night.

We have similar tastes!





Countess Marya ( in costume) Lol!

In costume as ...? Oh wait, I get it. It's the evil little girl from THE BAD SEED, isn't it?

Yes it is. It's Patty McCormick!

Did a few films as well as was on Peck's bad Girl, a 1959 TV series.



That's a little out of my line to costume as! Elderly grannies are my specialty!
Lol!

I knew it! That little cherub scared the hell out of me.

Of course, they ruin the film with that hideous tacked-on ending. (I mean, honestly, the mother survives a bullet to the head, and the little girl gets struck by lightning? Yeah, right.) But 99% of it is still brilliant, and it's worth it just to see those incredible performances carried over from the stage production ... especially Eileen Heckart. (Remember "Got a little drunk so I thought I'd come over"?) The novel is pretty damned disturbing too.

Whatever Happened To Baby Jane? with Betty Davis
Agreed. Both of these are favorites of mine!

Barbara Steele is such a goth goddess, and Betty Davis creeped me out the first time I saw Baby Jane many years ago at a midnight movie. I couldn't sleep that night!

You are right for Barbara Steele ( a great horror actress), the eyes have it!



As far as Bette Davis as Baby Jane, the pictures says it all (frightening)!
