IT’S OXNARD MONTH!!!
As many of you know, THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN lost it’s most beloved member, OXNARD (aka MOLLY), in July of this year. So with Thanksgiving fast approaching, we’ve declared November to be OXNARD MONTH. To celebrate all she contributed to creation and production of THE DARK VAULT, we will be featuring some of our favorite OXNARD episodes starting with UNCLE PETE and OXNARD spending some quality time at their favorite get-a-way – Lake Dark Vault. It’s strange “fish”, rare wildlife, and ghosts and gangsters as we present the 1940 East Side Kids classic Boys In The City.
It’s a hot day in the Bowery, and Muggs (Leo Gorcey), Danny (Bobby Jordan), Pete (David Gorcey), and the gang decide to borrow a fire hydrant to cool off. Well, the local flatfoots don’t appreciate this and the boys are once again pinched. Algy (Eugene Francis) has his Dad go to bat for the boys and it’s agreed they will be released to go up to Dad’s place in the Adirondacks under the supervision of Knuckles (Dave “Tex” O’Brien) who is trying to help the gang stay on the straight and narrow. So off to the mountains they go.
But also on the same road is Judge Parker (Forrest Taylor), a man slated to testify against the mob guys and a man whose life is in peril because of it. After some car trouble, the gang and the Judge wind up at the Judge’s mysterious mountain castle, complete with creepy housekeeper, scary cook, nearby cemetery, and at least one restless ghost. There are secret passages, an invisible organ player, disappearances, mystery, action, and non-stop hi-jinx. Also featuring Sunshine Sammy as Scruno, from director Joseph H. Lewis it’s Boys In The City.
Meanwhile, UNCLE PETE and OXNARD have a little heart to heart about living a dog’s life and explosions and monsters and stuff. Then it’s time for a little fishing, and there’s always an interesting catch from Lake Dark Vault. UNCLE PETE takes time out from angling to bring you Betty Boop and Grampy from 1932 in House Cleaning Blues. Then UNCLE PETE goes in search of some rare and unique wildlife including the always accessorized Vito-Necked Pheasant, but not before a double-header of George Burns and Gracie Allen. First, George tries to buy some cigars from sales clerk Gracie in 100% Service (1931), then George is a street cleaner and Gracie a nurse in Walking The Baby (1932).
It’s action and adventure, fishin’ and fun, and a card game with wildlife (with OXNARD under the table just to keep things on the up and up). So join UNCLE PETE and OXNARD this Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 10PM til midnight on channel 4. as they bring you Boys In The City, the next feature presentation on the DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!
