A ONE-EYED, ONE HORNED, FLYING PURPLE UNCLE PETER
There are a lot of grand, action filled movies being released lately featuring Biblical, mythological, and anciently historical themes. So, once again, proving that THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN will never be out done or undone or even just plain done, this week UNCLE PETE will be bringing you a big budget (well, it had a budget anyway) adventure of true classic epic proportions. From 1961, it’s Atlas In The Land Of The Cyclops. It stars Mitchel Gordon (aka Gordon Mitchel) as Atlas who comes to the aid of a village whose populace is getting regularly chomped by a giant, one-eyed meanie in a nearby cave. Throw in a lion, a bunch of guys with swords and an evil queen and you get an honest-to-goodness sword and sandal action picture. Directed by Leonviola (all one word) and also featuring Chelo Alonso, Vira Silenti, Aldo Bufi Landi and Little Fabio (who would grow up to be on the covers of many romance novels and in margarine commercials) and with music from the Rome Philharmonic Orchestra it’s Atlas In The Land Of The Cyclops.
Meanwhile, UNCLE PETE is rummaging around with Max and a few friends in the Dark Vault Crypt deep beneath the Cinema Graveyard. You can pick up the broadcast on your digital receivers as usual and you can always watch us in 3-D where available (with the Vito Gold 28K Gold 3-D Decoder(TM)), but special this week as a tip of the hat to one of our title characters, we will also be broadcasting in 1-D (for those of you with the Vito Gold One-Dimensional Glasses (TM)) so you can see the movie just like you were an evil mythological creature with one big eye in the middle of your head! So tune in this Saturday, March 15, 2014 on channel 4 around Binghamton, channel 99 around Elmira and Corning and channel 17 around Sayre from 10PM to midnight for Atlas In The Land Of The Cyclops, the next feature presentation on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!
