FIGHTING MONSTERS IN THE FUTURE (35 YRS. AGO) WITH UNCLE PETE (IN SANDALS)!!!

EL VATO DELIVERS A DOUBLE DOSE OF CINEMA TO UNCLE PETE

EL VATO DELIVERS A DOUBLE DOSE OF CINEMA TO UNCLE PETE

It’s a celebration of sandals and surveillance devices from the distant past to the gloomy future (of 35 years ago) this week in THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN.  Join UNCLE PETE for a thought-provoking, action-packed double-header with the sword and sandal epic Hercules And The Princess Of Troy and a tale of the totalitarian future, 1984 (well, at least it was the future when the story was written).

First, the people of Troy must make a monthly maiden delivery to a nasty sea monster that will otherwise destroy the city in lieu of payment.  With monster-eating-citizens things driving down property values, some citizens relocate, only to be captured by pirates.  Hercules (Gordon Scott) doesn’t think this whole set-up is very good, so he steps in to help out.  Also starring Gordon Mitchell (from Little Rita  and Atlas In The Land Of the Cyclops as seen on The DVOPD), Roger Browne (from War Of The Robots), and Diana Hyland, it’s Enzo Barboni’s 1965 epic Hercules And The Princess Of Troy.  The second feature is a television adaptation of George Orwell’s story of a futuristic society that practices mind control, constant widespread surveillance, and oversees all aspects of all citizens daily life – 1984.  A production of the Westinghouse Studio One program in 1953, it features an all-star cast including Eddie Albert, Lorne Greene, and Robert Culp.

While UNCLE PETE sorts things out in front of the Dark Vault View Screen, he manages to dig up a clothing ad featuring Moe, Larry, and Curly Joe and a trailer for a big screen version of 1984 (from 1984).  Plus, we head out to the flower bed to Tip-toe Through The Tulips during a musical interlude from the one and only ukulele playin’ Tiny Tim.

So fire up those TVs and join UNCLE PETE and the DARK VAULT gang this Friday, September 20, in Rochester/ western Monroe County on channel 1301 at 10PM and midnight and Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 10PM til midnight (with a replay at midnight) on channel 1301 for the Binghamton area, Corning/Elmira/Hornell, southern NY and northern PA, channel 99 for the Utica/Rome area, channel 30 all around the North Country of New York State, channel 2 for the Champlain, Tupper, and Saranac Lake areas and all over Cortland County, and channel 98 in Syracuse at 11PM with a replay on Thursday, September 19 at 10PM.  In Ithaca, NY, the channel is 13 and the times are 9PM and midnight.  It’s a double feature spanning eons with Hercules and The Princess OF Troy and 1984 this week on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!
