THE LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS (1960) HIGH SCHOOL CASAR (1960) DIVER DAN AND GOLDIE THE GOLDFISH (1960)


Every once in a while I get the urge to show a B-movie that not only does not suck, but is actually brilliant (acctually an A movie in my book) and here it is; Roger Corman's 1960 classic: THE LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS! Watch a plant eat people while Dick Miller eats flowers!

HIGH SCHOOL CASAR (1960)
Then there is this rarely seen gem from the same year: HIGH SCHOOL CASAR in which the tagline on the poster does little in ways of describing the film.


DIVER DAN AND GOLDIE THE GOLDFISH (1960)

Diver Dan was a syndicated television series produced around 1960, 61 in Philadelphia. The cast consisted of Diver Dan and Miss Minerva, the Mermaid, who were real people, along with a number of rubber fish puppets and other rubber sea creatures, who were all string and hand puppets. To give the illusion that they were all underwater, the series was filmed through an aquarium. This series looks so much like it is not underwater you never wonder how one of the bad guy fish manages to smoke a cigarette. Other characters included were Barron Barracuda, Trigger Fish, Finley Haddock, Gabby the Clam, Glow Fish, Goldie the Goldfish, Hammer-head Shark, Hermit Crab, Doc Sturgeon, Sea Biscuit the Seahorse and Skipper Kippe.
Did and does everything from Philly blow except for IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA and R. CRUMB?
