UNCLE PETE JAMS WITH ARCH HALL JR. THIS WEEK

UNCLE PETE JAMS WITH ARCH HALL JR. THIS WEEK

It’s Rock, Roll, and Action this week as UNCLE PETE brings out a way out, wild classic this week on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!  It’s the 1962 Ray Dennis Steckler gem – Wild Guitar.  Arch Hall Jr. stars as Bud Eagle, an aspiring singer/song writer who has hopped on his motorcycle and headed to Holllllllywood (gotta put 6 or 7 L’s in there cuz everything’s big out there).  He meets aspiring dancer Vickie (Nancy Czar) at a diner (where else), and she’s decides to help get him on the right track to stardom.  After he wow’s ’em on a variety show, agent Mike McCauley (Arch Hall, Sr.) takes Bud under his wing and zooms him into the stratosphere in like no time, Jack!!!  But McCauley is a no-good, shifty, unscrupulous agent (a rarity in Hollywood) and Bud tries to break ties with the agent, although henchman Steak (Ray Dennis Steckler, billed as Cash Flagg) might have something to say about that.  To complicate matters even some more yet, three barely ept thugs from the diner decide to kidnap Bud.  There’s intrigue, romance, comedy, a little ice skating, and a whole bunch of rockin’.  From 1962, it’s Wild Guitar.

But, there’s more!  UNCLE PETE, back in THE DARK VAULT CONTROL ROOM, has found a 1937, Duane Esper directed bit of educational film called How To Undress, an early exploitation short that was far more risqué then than it turns out to be now.  There are also trailers galore!  And besides causing some destruction, UNCLE PETE breaks out the wild ukulele for a couple musical interludes.  So tune in this Saturday night, September 16, 2017 from 10PM to midnight (with replays at midnight and 2AM) in Binghamton on channel 4, Sayre/Montrose on channel 17, Corning/Hornell/Elmora and Utica/Rome on channel 99 and all over the north country (Watertown/Malone/Massena/Ogdensburg/Champlain) on channel 30.  And welcome to all our newest viewers in the Tupper and Saranac Lake areas who now can watch us on channel 2!!!  It’ll be an action packed rockin’ good time with Wild Guitar, the next feature presentation on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!

UNCLE PETE POWERS UP THE PORTAL SPECTRAL DISEMBOBULATOR (TM) FOR A DOUBLE FEATURE

UNCLE PETE POWERS UP THE PORTAL SPECTRAL DISEMBOBULATOR (TM) FOR A DOUBLE FEATURE

It’s time for another appearance of the Official Dark Vault Viewer as UNCLE PETE brings you two, count ’em, two brand new features this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!  First up is the action music crime drama Postal Inspector from 1936.  It stars Hollywood fright legend, Bela Lugosi, as Gregory Benez, a shifty nightclub owner who has rung up a scary big gambling debt.  When Benez learns from recently hired singer Connie Larrimore (Patricia Ellis) that there is a 3 million dollar shipment of old money being transported from a nearby flooded area, he decides to grab it to pay off his debt.  But Charlie Davis (Michael Loring) – Connie’s sweetie and from whence she found out about the money shipment – happens to be the brother of Postal Inspector William Davis (Ricardo Cortez) and is overseeing this loot.  There’s a big heist, intrigue, a speedboat chase and lots more action.  Directed by Otto Brower and also starring Hattie McDaniel as Deborah, it’s Postal Inspector.

Then it’s flying lead and flying fists in the 1943 western classic, Bullets and Saddles.  The Range Busters – Ray “Crash” Corrigan, Dennis Moore, and Max “Alibi” Terhune – are called to action and wind up in the middle of cattle rustling and murder.  Bad guy Jack Hammond (Gunsmoke’s Glenn Strange) is masterminding a bunch of rustling.  He’s also after the Craig ranch.  Charlie Craig (Budd Buster) tells the local law that if the rustling and other unseemly crimes don’t get stopped, he’s going to organize some vigilantes.  Hammond sets up Charlie to be framed for murder.  Ma Craig calls in the Range Busters and the detectin’ and solvin’ begins.  Also starring Elmer as Max Terhune’s dummy, it’s Bullets and Saddles.

UNCLE PETE, El Vato, and Stone Dog and taking care of business back at the DARK VAULT as usual for this world premier double feature.  So tune in this Saturday night, September 9, 2017 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4 in the Binghamton area, channel 17 in Montrose/Sayre and surrounding areas, and channel 99 in Elmira/Hornell/Corning and Utica/Rome and channel 30 in the North Country (Ogdensburg/Watertown/Malone/Champlain/Massena) with replays at midnight and 2AM.  And make sure to listen for the smash hit song We’ll Have Bluebirds On All Our Wallpaper!  It’s Postal Inspector and Bullets and Saddles on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!

(And this Friday, September 8, 2017, check into Beta Max TV on your ROKU device to see Cramps lead singer Lux Interior’s favorite movie – Phantom Of Soho, an international tale of murder and suspense!)

UNCLE PETE AND EL VATO SENDING OUT ANOTHER DARK VAULT GEM

Nothin’ says Labor Day Weekend like a gorilla!  So, this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN we bring you the wacky romantic music-filled comedy horror classic Bela Lugosi Meets A Brooklyn Gorilla.  It stars Duke Michell as Duke Mitchell and Sammy Petrillo as Sammy Petrillo in their only cinematic outing presenting their clone-like impersonations of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis (another couple of actor/singer/comic type guys who also had movie and recording careers, or so I’ve heard).

SAMMY , DUKE AND NONA AT THE SHINDIG

Duke and Sammy, flying to entertain the troops stationed in Guam, mistake the Out Door for the powder room and wind up landing on an island (good thing they were wearing their parachutes).  It turns out to be Kola Kola at the far end of the Zamboanga group (and as you may know, the monkeys have no tails in Zamboanga – but that’s another song…).  The chief’s daughter Nona (played by Charlita) saves the boys’ lives and sparks fly between Nona and Dukey.  The Mad Scientist in the ointment, Dr. Zabor (Bela Lugosi) has a spooky jungle castle that the natives avoid like a porcupine in a nudist colony.  But since Nona has a job as lab assistant with the Doctor, Duke and Sammy head up there to see about getting off the island.  But Zabor also has eyes for Nona and decides to get Duke out of the way by using him as the donor for his brain transfer experiment involving a big ol’ gorillillilla!  As might be expected, wacky hi-jinx ensue!  This 1952 gem from director William Beaudine (a well known name in the world of the Bowery Boys) also features Ramona the Chimp, and you gotta love any movie with a Ramona in it.

UNCLE PETE SPREADS ADVICE ON THE AIRWAVES EARLY IN HIS CAREER

     Meanwhile, UNCLE PETE gets a bit of a disappointment when he finds the big name Hollywood feature presentation he had planned ain’t gonna happen.  He slips into a flashback of his days as host of a radio advice phone-in show with some interesting callers.  But he also manages to dig up not one, but two, helpings of our favorite cartoon cutie, Betty Boop, with 1933’s The Old Man Of The Mountain (featuring Cab Calloway and His Orchestra) and 1932’s Betty Boop’s Bamboo Isle!  Pull out your sarongs, your grass skirts and your half coconut drinking cup things.  It’s two hours of songs, dances, and snappy patter this Saturday, September 2, 2017 from 10PM to midnight with replays at midnight and 2AM) on channel 4 in Binghamton, channel 17 in Sayre/Montrose, channel 99 in Utica/Rome and Hornell/Elmira/Corning and channel 30 in the North Country of New York State!  It’s Flashbacks and a gorilla with UNCLE PETE for Bela Lugosi Meets A Brooklyn Gorilla, the next feature presentation in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

(And don’t forget to watch THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN on Beta Max TV on the ROKU device!  New this week – our Night Train To Terror episode!)
