UNCLE PETE AND EL VATO DISCUSS THE WHO’S WHO OF CRIME

Spend some time with family this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN.  Not just any family, but The Family.  Join UNCLE PETE as he uncovers the 1972 Italian Mob Thriller – Crime Boss.  It stars Telly Savalas as Don Vincenzo, the tough, ruthless, cultured head of The Family, and Antonio Sabato as Antonio Mancuso, a somewhat successful hood from Sicily with ambitions of criming it up in the big time.  Antonio heads to the mainland where he teams up with his cousin Nicola (Giuliano Persico), a gainfully employed small time pimp.  Antonio makes a big enough splash that he gets to meet the Don and is given a chance in the organization as an entry-level member.  But Antonio has his sights set  on Don Vincenzo’s job and his daughter Monica (Paolo Tedesco).  Will Telly stand for this?  Find out this week in the DARK VAULT!  From director Alberto DeMartino with a killer score from Francesco DeNasi, it’s Crime Boss.

UNCLE PETE DOES A KOJAK

Back at the vault, UNCLE PETE and El Vato have a discussion about the history and fine points of the world of crime.  And UNCLE PETE channels Kojak with an eyeball pop while finding time to bring you a load of trailers and Popeye meeting with some ghosts and stuff in 1954’s Fright To The Finish.

So grab your spinach and your Tootsie Roll pops and join UNCLE PETE this Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4 in Binghamton, channel 17 in Montrose/Sayre, channel 30 way up north (Watertown/Champlain/Ogdensburg/Massena/Malone) and channel 99 in Hornell/Corning/Elmira and Utica/Rome with replays at midnight and 2AM.  Who loves ya Telly?  We Do!!! It’s Crime Boss, the feature presentation on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

GOOD OL’ OXNARD

OXNARD CATCHES A DOG-NAP BETWEEN TAKES

As many of you long time DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN viewers know, one of our best-loved (and certainly best lookin’) denizens  was UNCLE PETE’S faithful Beagle sidekick OxnardOxnard appeared in several episodes and was just off camera for a majority of the first 6 years of DARK VAULT shows.  Although Oxnard (whose real name was Molly) passed away a few years ago not long after completing her final episode, her presence is still felt and remembered around THE VAULT.  She would have been 20 years old today, April 18th!  So, celebrate her day by doing something nice for a dog today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY OXNARD!!!

 

HAPPY EASTER!!!!!!!!

THIS TIME FOR SURE – UNCLE PETE VISITS THE BOWERY THIS WEEK!!!

•April 13, 2017 • Leave a Comment

UNCLE PETE DOES SOME HIGH ROLLIN’ IN THIS WEEK’S EPISODE

UNCLE PETE was pretty sure he was heading to the Bowery last week.  Really sure.  But no.  By the mystic power of the Magic Cable Sorcerer, he was transported from the Bowery back to the Dark Vault where he had to perform a couple of brain operations on El Vato.  But he has his mojo, his juju, and his lucky rat’s foot, so Bowery here we come this week!  And having done two brain surgeries last week, he knows that two heads are supposed to be better than one, but the two UNCLE PETE heads are not on the same bodies this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN as we bring you UNCLE PETE in the DARK VAULT and UNCLE PETE in the feature.  It’s the East Side Kids adventure Clancy Street Boys.  Muggs (Leo Gorcey) and his mother get a letter from their Uncle Pete Monahan (Noah Beery), a close friend of Muggs’ late father (played in photograph only by Bernard Gorcey, Leo’s real father).  Problem is, Pa stretched the truth a little and told Uncle Pete that there were seven little ones instead of just Muggs.  Uncle Pete, being a generous, genuinely nice guy (as real Uncle Pete’s always are), has been sending regular checks to Muggs’ Ma to help take care of the brood.  But now he’s coming to visit.

UNCLE PETE AND THE GANG WATCH MUGGS GET READY FOR SOME BRONC BUSTIN’

So Muggs decides to enlist the gang to pretend to be his siblings (as well as his brothers and sisters), including Scruno (Sunshine Sammy Morrison) and even Glimpy (Huntz Hall) as little Annabelle.  Uncle Pete gets miffed when he finds out the truth, but when some shady characters try to extort some cash out of the rich Texan, it’s the gang to the rescue.

This is the first time William Beaudine directed the boys, but not the last as he directed several more films and much of the Bowery Boys series.  Also featuring Bobby Jordan as Danny, Amelita Ward as Uncle Pete’s daughter Judy and a special appearance by Bernard Gorcey as the owner of a liquor store (which of course he would convert into Louie’s Sweet Shop in the Bowery Boys films).  From 1943 it’s the East Side Kids and Uncle Pete in Clancy Street Boys.

UNCLE PETE AND HIS GOLFING BUDDIES

UNCLE PETE also manages to dig up a whole bunch of trailers of the Dead End/East Side Kids to bring back a memory or two or maybe let you know of a movie you maybe never even heard of. Plus, there’s a The Three Stooges short!  Kirk Robin’s been murdered, Gail Tempest has been charged and Moe, Larry and Curly are the key witnesses.  There’s murder, music and mayhem as they testify in 1938’s Disorder In The Court (the first short where Curly was not spelled Curley!).

MOE, LARRY, AND CURLY ENGAGE IN A ROUSING GAME OF JACKS

So grab your favorite refreshments and settle in this Saturday night, April 15, 2017 on Binghamton’s channel 4, channel 19 in Sayre/Montrose, channel 99 in Elmira/Corning/Hornell and Utica/Rome and of course channel 30 in the north part of New York State (Watertown/Champlain/Massena/Malone/Ogdensburg/etc.) from 10PM to midnight with replays at midnight and 2AM.  It’s a double dose of UNCLE PETES – and all in one show – for Clancy Street Boys on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!

(And at 7PM this Saturday over on Beta Max TV on the Roku streaming device, it’s another heaping helping of some of the formerly internet only bits of The DARK  VAULT on The Best Of The Webisodes – Volume 2!

TRANSPLANTED FEATURES AND TRANSPLANTED (DEFECTIVE) BRAINS!!!

UNCLE PETE CLEANS UP THE BRAIN-O-MATIC 3000(TM) AFTER A LITTLE BRAIN SURGERY ON EL VATO

Well, sometimes the magic of television becomes the mystery of television.  Like when we expect Muggs and Glimpy and up pops a government brain experiment resulting in psychotic killers!  Almost the same, but not quite.  Why did this happen?  Who knows, but anyway, instead of Bowery action and comedy, it’s gonna be a bloody good time on this week’s DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN as UNCLE PETE breaks out the Brain-O-Matic 3000 ™ and digs up a brain-ful psycho-thriller from 1976, The Brain Machine.  Sounds like some gadget as seen on TV in a late night extendo-commercial but it’s about a group of people who volunteer for a secret government brain power experiment – ESP and mind control and food dehydrating and like that.  The subjects are subjected to all manner of mind related weirdness and of course, something goes awry.

There are some interesting TV type stars here like James Best – the soon to be Roscoe P. Coltrane who some years earlier had  left his guitar in Mayberry –  as the Rev. Neill.  There’s Gerald McRaney – a Simon from Simon and Simon who would later be a major dad –  as Willie West.  There’s also Barbara Burgess as Dr. Carol Portland and Gil Peterson as another doctor named Elton and director Joy N. Houck, Jr. (son of the guy who brought us a whole bushel of Lash LaRue westerns) – it’s The Brain Machine.  And it’s been brand new-ly remixed and remastered to bring you all the action and psychotronic waves sharper, clearer, and more audio-er than ever before!

UNCLE PETE TRIES TO GET SOME TECH SUPPORT FOR A RAMPAGING EL VATO

Back at the Vault, it’s brain surgery and some unintended side effects.  UNCLE PETE tried some clone modification via a new computer chip that he just got a case of in a storage room auction.  But the cranial implant he installed in El Vato (using the brand new Brain-O-Matic 3000(tm)) has turned El Vato into an ultra-violent killing machine, and that ain’t no good.  So although UNCLE PETE has to seek safety under an out-of-the-way staircase in the Dark Vault while he tries to contact tech support, he still finds time for a little informational ditty about the brand new movie rating system (G, M, R, and X) and a short scare film based-on-a-real-story film from 1976 called Joy Ride – about stealing a nice old Mopar.

It’s brain hacking and brain modifying this Saturday, April 8, 2017 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4 (channel 17 in Sayre/Montrose, channel 99 in Elmira/Corning and Hornell and Utica/Rome and channel 30 in the North Country!), with replays at midnight and 2AM.  Join UNCLE PETE, his Brain-O-Matic 3000 and El Vato for a remastered The Brain Machine – the surprise (even to us) next feature presentation on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!
