WESTERNS AND BOWLING - AN UNCLE PETE DOUBLE THREAT

WESTERNS AND BOWLING – AN UNCLE PETE DOUBLE THREAT

Adventure, action, and comedy are the buzzwords this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN as UNCLE PETE  brings you They Call Me Trinity.  Directed and written by Enzo Barboni, this gem from 1970 stars our favorite Italian duo Terence Hill (as Trinity) and Bud Spencer (as Bambino).

Bambino pretends to be a small town sheriff (after incapacitating the real sheriff) while he waits for his bad guy buddies to show up.  Trinity, Bambino’s brother and a first class slacker, fighter and gunman, rolls into town first.  At the same time, an evil rancher – Major Harriman (Farley Granger)  – is trying to run a bunch of Mormons off their land so he can take it over as a horse ranch.  Trinity, smitten by a couple of attractive Mormon girls, convinces his brother that they should help the Mormons fight this evil land grabber.  Fightin’ and fun ensue in this action packed horse opera also knows as My Name Is Trinity.

Meanwhile, UNCLE PETE, off on a bowling tour, runs into a little trouble (as usual) at one of the airports.  It seems some of the stuff that UNCLE PETE typically travels with has Airport Security a bit concerned.

So throw some spaghetti and beans on the grill and get ready for fightin’ and fun as you tune in this Saturday night May 18, 2019 from 10PM til midnight on channel 1301 around Binghamton, Sayre/Montrose, Elmira/Corning/Hornell, northern PA and southern NY, channel 2 in Cortland County and the tri-lakes area (Champlain/Tupper/Saranac), channel 99 in the Utica/Rome area, and channel 30 in the North Country of NY.  And remember our extra showing at midnight.  In the Ithaca area, watch on channel 13 at 9PM and midnight.  It’s western action, bowling thrills and a good dose of wackiness as UNCLE PETE presents They Call Me Trinity, the next feature presentation on the DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

(This week over at Beta Max TV on all Roku devices and TVs it’s Lee Van Cleef and Tony LoBianco in the crime drama Mean Frank And Crazy Tony)

UNCLE PETE DEMONSTRATES THE LATEST BATTERIES-FREE CAMERA

WELCOME BACK UTICA/ROME CHANNEL 99!!!

UNCLE PETE has the original “hot mail” this week as THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN takes a look in the Dead Letter Office for the 1961 scarefest anthology – The Devil’s Messenger.  Lon Chaney Jr. stars as Lou C. Fer (or is it B. L. Zebub) in a movie based on the Swedish series 13 Demon Street.   Three tales of dastardly deeds – a scientist who discovers a girl frozen in ice, a lecherous photographer (aren’t they all), and a man who was no gentleman.  Meanwhile, the devil is on a recruitment drive (with no shortage of folks lining up to join) and he enlists the assistance of lovely evil dead girl Satanya (played by Karen Kadler).  Plus, just for fun, he’s also plotting the destruction of all mankind by way of a nuclear explosion.

ANOTHER DAY AT THE OFFICE FOR THE DEVIL

And since it’s Mother’s Day , UNCLE PETE has an extra treat in the form of the creepy classic  One Step Beyond, hosted by your guide John Newland. This episode from 1959 entitled The Devil’s Laughter is about  an evil doer sure he has cheated death.  UNCLE PETE keeps busy with Max, tries to capture El Vato’s soul (or is it his sole) with his special camera, reads some viewer mail, and makes up a batch of brain squeezins.  And don’t forget to send us your e-mail at unclepeteshow@gmail.com.

So join UNCLE PETE for some devilish entertainment, this Saturday night, May 11, 2019 from 10PM to midnight on channel 1301 for the Binghamton area, Elmira/Hornell/Corning, Sayre/Montrose, northern PA and southern NY,  channel 30 in the North Country (Watertown/Champlain/Massena/Malone/Ogdensburg/etc.), channel 2 for the tri-lakes area (Champlain, Tupper, Saranac) and Cortland County, and (once again!) channel 99 for the Utica/Rome area with a replay at midnight.  In Ithaca, NY, watch us on channel 13 at 9PM and midnight.  Share it with Mom – it’s a cheap gift and she’ll love it (assuming she enjoys low-budget horror movies!).  The Devil’s Messenger on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

(And for all you Beta Max TV viewers (available on all Roku TVs and devices, http://www.betamaxtv.com), bring Mom along for some great deals on “the stuff you needs to buy” for The Vito Shopping Spectacular!)

UNCLE PETE AND SAMMY COUNT TP TWO - AND BEYOND - THIS WEEK IN THE DARK VAULT CRYPT

UNCLE PETE AND SAMMY COUNT TO TWO – AND BEYOND – THIS WEEK IN THE DARK VAULT CRYPT

It’s May 4th and we know there’s some kind of saying that goes with this day (maybe Quatro de Mayo?).  But while we ponder that – you can ponder this – it’ Double Feature Day at THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN  this Saturday night!!!  Spend the evening with UNCLE PETE for two action packed thrillers, well, two movies anyway!

TYPICAL VIEWER WAITING FOR THE DARK VAULT TO START

TYPICAL VIEWER WAITING FOR THE DARK VAULT TO START

First up, it’s Beast Of Yucca Flats starring that popular pin-up boy, Tor Johnson, as a Russian defector who wanders into the blast zone of an atomic bomb test. He gets a bit mutated and croaks a few of the locals.  Directed by Coleman Francis, this movie used the groundbreaking technique of being filmed entirely without a soundtrack.  They used to call those films “silent movies”, but in this case we just call it cheap.  All sounds and dialogue were added afterwards (you may notice that you never actually see anyone talking).  Also starring Douglas Mellor, Barbara Francis and Bing Stafford, it’s the 1961 low-budget classic, Beast Of Yucca Flats.

BILLY AND FUZZY SIZE UP THE SITUATION

BILLY AND FUZZY SIZE UP THE SITUATION

The second serving of stuff stars a man who was an Olympic swimmer, Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, Tarzan, and numerous B western heroes – Buster Crabbe in Fugitive Of The Plains.   A gang doing crimes points the finger square at Buster (in his frequent role as Billy the Kid), so he and sidekick Al “Fuzzy” St. John set out to clear their names.  Directed by Sam Newfield, it also stars Maxine Leslie and features seasoned western side men Kermit Maynard (Ken’s brother) as Spence and George Cheesbro as Baxter.  It’s the 1943 horse opera, Fugitive Of The Plains.

UNCLE PETE and Sammy are wandering in the Dark Vault Crypt and with all its unexplored passages – some that appear to have been excavated from below – this always proves for an interesting stroll.  Tune in this Saturday, May 4, 2019 on channel 1301 in Binghamton, Sayre/Montrose, Elmira/Corning/Hornell and northern PA and southern NY, channel 99 in Utica/Rome (the show is definitely returning to Utica/Rome either this week or next at the latest!!!), channel 30 in The North Country and channel 2 in the tri-lakes area (Champlain, Saranac, and Tupper) and Cortland County areas from 10PM to midnight (replay at midnight) and channel 13 in the Ithaca area at 9PM and midnight).  UNCLE PETE lights up the screen with fireworks galore in the form of six-gun shootin’ and atom bomb blastin’ just in time for the Fourth (May 4th).  It’s Beast Of Yucca Flats and Fugitive Of The Plains on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

(And for all our ROKU viewers, tune in to Beta Max TV for a trip from the Bowery to a haunted house and murder with Boys Of The City)

SINGIN’, SHOOTIN’, AND LAUNDRY – UNCLE PETE GOES WEST THIS WEEK!!!

UNCLE PETE AND VITOBOT(TM) DISCUSS THE FEATURE

UNCLE PETE AND VITOBOT(TM) DISCUSS THE FEATURE, CHEESE, AND LAUNDRY

This week, to coin a phrase, THE DARK VAULT is alive with the sound of music – and gunfire, horses, power tools, and other stuff!  THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN and the Clones are filled with music and a bunch of rip-roarin’ six-gun western action too as UNCLE PETE brings you the rarely seen spaghetti western/musical/romance/comedy Little Rita Of The West.  It stars Italian pop star Rita Pavone as Little Rita – a straight shootin’ buckskin clad babe ridin’ through the Old West righting wrongs. Rita believes that gold is the root of a lot of bad stuff, so she, along with friends Francis (Lucio Dalla) and Sitting Bison (well-known Hercules-type movie star Gordon Scott aka Gordon Mitchell), sets out to blow up all the gold she can locate.  But a bunch of bad guys want to get the gold before she blows it up.  Along the way, Rita crosses paths with the one that makes her heart go pitty pat – Black Star (Terence Hill) – who seems to have eyes more for the gold than Rita (or does he).

    Originally, Little Rita Of The West was entirely in Italian and contained all kindsa songs, but when it was released in English, all the songs were cut. We’ve unearthed a rather rare print of this film that not only has the English dialog, but also has all of the original songs included, and in Italian. Another DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN exclusive (or there abouts)!  Plus, we’ve also remastered our copy with improved sights, sounds and smells (for those sets so equipped)!

EL VATO AND ROJO GATO OFFER THEIR VERSION OF A SNACK

El Vato and Rojo Gato are hard at work doing their version of sprucing things up around the DARK VAULT.  UNCLE PETE, just back from a trip, searches for a snack, and digs up a couple of musical adventures from the old Scopitones section of the Cinema Graveyard before having an unfortunate power tool incident.

So join UNCLE PETE and the Clones this Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 10PM to midnight on  channel 1301 for the Binghamton area, Montrose/Sayre, and Elmira/Corning/Hornell as well as surrounding northern PA and southern NY areas, Utica/Rome’s channel 99 (as soon as we get that fixed), the North Country’s channel 30, and channel 2 for Cortland County and the tri-lakes area (Tupper, Saranac, and Champlain) with a replay at midnight. And in the Ithaca area, channel 13 at 9PM and midnight.  Close out your April with action, music, and power tools for Little Rita Of The West, our next feature presentation on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!

(And this week on Beta Max TV , it’s Gamera vs. some kidnapping, brain eating aliens in Attack Of The Monsters on all Roku TVs and devices!  http://www.betamaxtv.com)

A MESSAGE FOR OUR UTICA/ROME AREA VIEWERS!!!

•April 27, 2019 • Leave a Comment

It’s recently come to our attention that for the past several weeks, THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN has not been appearing on channel 99 in the Utica/Rome area.  UNCLE PETE has found that the reason for this is the loss of some paperwork at the Charter/Spectrum control offices.  For each area of NY and PA that the DARK VAULT appears in, we have a viewer who has volunteered to be the “sponsor” for that region.  Being a “sponsor” simply means being a person who is interested in THE DARK VAULT appearing on TV in their area and has filled out the forms to show that they actually live in that area.

Apparently, when Charter/Spectrum moved their offices and broadcast facilities from Ithaca to Rochester, the sponsor forms for the Utica/Rome area didn’t get carried along with the rest of the stuff and as a result, they ceased the feed to channel 99.

But the good news is, I’ve contacted a viewer in the Utica/Rome area who have volunteered to be our sponsor and the paperwork is in process.  So we will return!!!  Best guess at the moment is a week, maybe two before all is processed and back on-line with Charter/Spectrum.

We here at THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN apologize for this unanticipated hiatus of the show in the Utica/Rome area.  And we thank all you loyal viewers who have enjoyed the show every week for the past couple years and especially we thank the viewers who brought this issue to our attention.

If you have any questions or need any more information about The Dark Vault and it’s return to your area, feel free to contact UNCLE PETE at unclepeteshow@gmail.com or on Facebook at Uncle Pete Official.

WE SHALL RETURN!!!!!!!!!!

HAPPY EASTER FROM THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!
