CineSavant Column

Tuesday February 4, 2020


Thanks to Jonathan Gluckman for this tip, which he calls a belated follow-up to a thing I had going a while back about Movie Tie-In tunes, the more terrible, the better.

This one is credited to the (mostly) comic stars Alice Pearce and Hans Conried, and it sounds pretty good!

I’m In Love with the Creature from the Black Lagoon

The only disappointment is that Conreid doesn’t sing as well… I guess this is his debut as a songwriter?

Enough said. I’m buried in other responsibilities at the moment, but more CineSavant nonsense/good reviews will be here on Saturday. I’ve just received a trio of impressive Criterion discs, including the Karel Zeman trilogy … and, and, it looks like I’m the last to learn that Scream Factory will be releasing a Blu-ray of Mario Bava’s Danger: Diabolik soon. That’s great, as it’s been fifteen years since the very good DVD arrived.

Thanks for reading! — Glenn Erickson
