Stuff You Can't Miss Thursday!

I'm gonna digress a bit more, and share with you some stuff I haven't seen, but I'd love to:

This is an ultra-rare promo shot of a proposed Black Widow / Daredevil TV series from the 1970's that never got off the ground. DD looks awful, and I can't stand the Widow as a character, but I still wish this had seen the light of day.

You'd buy a ticket to see Batman Fights Dracula. Don't try and tell me you wouldn't. Yes, this was a real film from 1967 in the Philippines.

Some Golden Age Serials:

Spy Smasher.... I can't even find a clip of this one, but I'd love to see it.

With the addition of Congorilla to the next Justice League re-boot (gee, has it been three weeks already?), this is an interesting conversation piece. Near as I can tell, though, you only get Congo Bill. No gorilla.

The original Vigilante, complete with Stuff! Stuff was a teenaged sidekick who had to do a lot of errands - he was somewhere on the usefulness meter between Tonto and Alfred.

The East Indian Superman Movie:

I wish I could tell you that all Indian films didn't have a scene like this in them.

I wish I could tell you that.

Captain Marvel, circa 1941:

Caminhos do Coraco:

Near as I can tell, it's a Heroes-type show from Brazil. If this is ever dubbed, someone let me know.

KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park:

This was a TV Movie back in 1978 when Marvel Comics put out a KISS Treasury Edition-Size book. I want to watch this, and I've had the opportunity, but I just can't make it through. KISS hates that it exists, so I can't let it go, but watching the whole thing? Can't do it.

So, there you have it.... If you've seen any of these, let me know if they're worth tracking down.

Tomorrow, I complete the Trilogy with a list of good stuff I have seen that you might have missed!

Then, back to the silly panels...

You included Indian Superman, excellent!

I love this horrendous-type stuff so I can inflict it on friends of mine. I sat through the whole Kiss thing. I really should find a way to maximise my time better. But I enjoyed it overall and am curious to see what "good stuff" you come up with tomorrow.

Do Meeeeee..... Laaady...

Indian Superman seems so much more carefree than Regular Superman.

I just wish I knew why "Lois" was dressed like Spider-man.

Hey, those Captain Marvel serials from the 1940s are actually pretty good! However, my favorite "old" superhero movie has always been Superman and the Mole-Men. :-)

In college, we turned the Adam West Batman and Robin movie into a drinking game. Don't ask.

ADAM! The Electric Company is now available on DVD, season by season! :-)

Sea? I'm asking. Please post the B&R Movie Drinking game rules. It will be played in casa del Soup. Oh, yes. It will.

Thank you.

That Indian Superman movie is like the most awesome fan fiction-movie ever.

Meanwhile on Earth 234,567,429...

Indian Reed Richards is on the videophone to the members of JASA(Justice Avengers of South Asia).

INDIAN REED RICHARDS: My friends, I have done it!* I have discovered a portal to a parallel universe where all the superheroes are in America!

INDIAN FEMALE SAVAGE DRAGON: Darling! I called you for dinner half an hour ago!

INDIAN REED RICHARDS: Oops! Gotta go! We're still good for golf on Saturday, right, Luke Skywalker? Okay, see you then! Bye!

*This is all translated from Hindi.

I wonder if tomorrow will include Japanese Spiderman?

De said...

The Japanese Spider-Man had one of the best theme songs ever!

SallyP said...

That has to be the most ludicrous Daredevil that I've ever seen, and yet Natasha actually doesn't look too bad.

Oh Sea, exactly WHAT was your drinking game?

Caminhos do Coração... It was actually a Soap Opera - a Heroes ripoff, naturally. Now they're airing a spin off, Os Mutantes. Neither of them are any good. I know some people would like to see them out of camp value, but, seriously... It's one or two action scenes a week and five hours of painful product placement.
