|Actor Woody Allen once said "‘I’m not afraid to die. I just don’t want to be there when it happens."|
|We have to have a hot rod of some sort on this post. Here is a great old Halloween post card with a pumpkin driving a witch in a watermelon hot rod with limes for wheels....HOW COOL IS THAT?|
Here are a couple of REAL scary ones. This first Lucky Strike one says, "The way this Jack-o-lantern smiles, you'd almost think that he could really taste the Lucky Strike he's lighting up for me." The second on says that Old Gold cures just one thing....The World's Best Tobacco....doesn't even make sense.
These old characters on this old Wrigley's Spearmint ad are scary enough on their own let alone on a Halloween advertisement.
|Here's a little take off on an old product called "Miss Clairol"....does the Werewolf use it or not....LOL|
|......And here is Jack Pierce doing a wonderful job coloring Lon Chaney's hair....uh FUR....|
Only a Werewolf knows for sure.
This next one stands out as one of the strangest commercial ad's I've ever seen!!
They're using really weird looking kiddies, smoking Duke of Durham....or maybe they are chewing it....By the looks on their faces, "they're chewing".
This is a real odd collection of doll heads....scares the hell out of me!!!
The witch here looks like Little Red Riding Hood with a black cat!
One more witch post card. In the early 1900's people would send 1 cent post cards out on pretty much every occasion. I have seen many different ones like these.....very colorful and old timey for sure!
|Gotta love Boris....there's no voice quite like his!|
Here are a couple more films that made me cover my eyes at the old Royal Theatre back in the day! Be sure to click on the links at the end for other year's posts.
Always a sexy looking gal being carried off by the monster....
and WOW....its in 3D....remember the old green and red
cellophane lens cardboard 3D glasses?
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! ....one final scare!
