That's too bad.  Shame they couldn't have at least thrown in a scene or three as a sort of tribute.

To the best of my recollection, Billy sent me a disc from a Mill Creek collection.  For whatever reason, Billy has never included correspondence with tapes  and discs he's sent through the years.  Knowing Billy, he most likely did PM me prior, asking if I'd like to see such-and-such movie I'd once mentioned, so the almost undoubtedly rests squarely on my shoulders.  I'd like to rectify it, if we ever get a final, approved list of the films that were on the disc.  I think it may have had as many as six?  it was one of those two-sided, compressed discs.  I'm sorry to break up Billy's factory set though.  I feel like a dolt.  Hopefully, in a few cases, I might be capable of finding much better prints of some of the movies, which doesn't make up for things, I know...

Dr. Claw, it's not really anything you need to live down, you are not a dolt, and you don't have to make up for anything, and I hope you are saying that with a good sense of humor, which is how I am taking it.
I think most of what happened, quite a few years ago, is recorded here on the board, if I could just find the thread.
And, as you said above, you did give me much better DVDs of some of those that I wanted to see again.  At the time I sent you the disc, I didn't really care to see any of those films again, or for the firstime, so it was fine with me to have one less disc in the mill creek collection.

The film you needed for some other fellow film collector might have been Battle of the Worlds.

If I do find the thread where we discussed the matter, possibly on this, Recently Seen thread, I'll let everyone know.

It's not really that big a deal, because Emson / Mill Creek changes the arrangement of the films so much, and the prices of those compressed discs are so low, that whatever one might need, can eventually be found.

The disc in question was 50 Sci-Fi Classics Disc 2

Side A was Space Rangers, Crash of Moons, an old 1950s TV show, which I found at a very low price on VHS and watched before Wild Bill sent me the entire 5 two sided compressed disc set.

2nd on Side A was Space Rangers, Menace from Outer Space, which might have been on that VHS I had with Crash of Moons on it.  Not certain, tho.

3rd on Side A of Disc 2, was War of the Planets, which might have been an early 1970s release which I might have watched some of on a TV showing, but didn't see the whole film.  Was there more than one film titled War of the Planets?

4th on side A of Disc 2 was Destroy All Planets, a late 60s? Japanese films which might have gone straight to AIP TV release.

Last on side A of Disc 2 was Colossus and the Amazon Queen.

Side B of Disc 2

Incredible Petrified World, which Dr. Claw was very nice to send me  a much better print of, on a regular, single DVD.

Second on Side B was Unknown World, which Dr. Claw again nicely sent me, on another version of 50 Movie Pack Sci Fi Classics, Disk 9, side b, this series having 4 feature films, two to a side on a 2 sided disc.

3rd was battle of the worlds, also from side B of Disk 9 in that series, so there are three films that I got back from Dr. Claw, and I'll say again, many thanks for it.  

Also, on Side A of that mix and match round robin Disk 9, I got The Astral Factor and Galaxy Invader, which were on Disc1 of the set that Wild Bill sent to me.

And, more of Dr. Claw's generosity, the 50 Movie pack SciFi classics Disk 2:  Side A-Horrors of Spider Island and The Wasp Woman, and side B Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet and Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women. These films were also on the 50 films collections, Sci-Fi, and/or Horror, that WBW had sent me.

Again, the mix and match variations of Emson / Mill creek has so much repetition.

The final 2 films on Side B of Disc 2 of the set Wild Bill sent to me, and I passed on to Dr. Claw:

Queen of the Amazons, which I wrote a note that I had run off on VHS for Dave Szurek.  This was a film I don't think that I have seen.

And, the final one was Robot Monster, which I have seen, and don't really need to see again.

Once again, to sum things up, Dr. Claw doesn't have anything he needs to live down, and I have only gratitude to him for sending me so many goodies in the mail.

I'm just mentioning a few films that I might want to see from the disc I sent to Dr. Claw, and again, while I might want to check out some of those films, it's no big deal, and I'm sure I can probably find what I want to see eventually.

But, I might suffer a fatal heart attack tomorrow, and in my final moments, I  won't have any regrets for not having seen those few films.


  If I understand you correctly, you'd like me to find the following?

Space Rangers, Crash of Moons

Space Rangers, Menace from Outer Space

War of the Planets

Destroy All Planets

Colossus and the Amazon Queen







Well, these are done, and will likely go out early next week.

 Thanks for the posts, everybody, and the generous offers of a kickstarter campaign to get Billy a new Box set of the 50 Sci-Fi Classics and/or a new TV.

I think we need to hold off on both of those goals for awhile, while I do some soul searching about which of the missing films I might really be interested in seeing.

I liked what Deeky said comparing Billy's slow decision making to the Soviet committees.

I did get the date that I sent the 2 sided SF DVD to Dr. Claw:  December 13, 2006.

That's been awhile, and I think you other ZAQBers might understand how, after 11 years, I might be interested in seeing some of the films on that disc.

Right now, I've got to decide which ones.

And, about the old fashioned TV set.  It's been so long since I've adjusted the height of the picture, I'm not even sure I remember which switch on the back of the TV set to use. 

I thought it was the vertical hold, but when I turned that control last night, all it did was cause the picture to roll vertically, with no change in stable picture height.

So, I've got to start a search for the correct control to get that squeezed in picture of Crawling Eye squeezed down to the right aspect ratio, of I think it was 1.66 to 1, although the other widescreen letterboxed films in the set, Amazing Transparent Man and Wasp Woman, were both the standard 1950s widescreen of 1.85 to 1.

Running the picture through my video camera did not squeeze down the picture of Crawling eye any.

 Went to Wally World in North Myrtle Beach today, and asked a clerk about the Mill Creek collections that they didn't stock it in that store, but different stores stocked different collections, so I should check different Wally Worlds in the area, and there are quite a few.

He also said I could order it online and have the DVD sent to that store if I wanted to.

I then went to a Flea Market on US 17, and they had quite a few Video Packs, but none of the Mill Creek ones.

I'm sure that I will find some of those films and get to see them.

 Well, Folks, today I went to a local video store, and got one of the films missing from the 50 Sci Fi Classics:  Rocky Jones Space Ranger:  Crash of Moons.  Very low price.

The store had other individual Rocky Jones features, but not Menace From Outer Space, altho that one was on a Mill Creek 50 film compilation, but it didn't have some of the other films I needed.

One defect is the DVD of the 50 Sci-Fi Classics, with Teenagers From Outer Space, which ends 45 mins into the film!

Had not seen it in many years when I watched it on the Mill Creek 50 SciFi Classics a few years back, and was surprised and disappointed by this defect.

I did also check at the county library today, searchign their 26 pages of science fiction DVDs, but no 50 or Fifth SciFi Classics, and no Destroy All Monsters.

Tomorrow, I might patrol some other video stores, as well as the Myrtle Beach city library, which I might have mentioned before, has a lot of DVDs for only a dollar.

Some of them are Sinister Cinema double features, which I might have reported on awhile back on this thread.

Due to not wanting to overcrowd my shack, I decided to donate those DVDs to the public library, and the very day afterward, they were gone.  In that video store I went to today, I saw some of those Sinister Cinema double features, and wonder if the proprietor of that store might have picked them up (for free, as is this library's policy) to add to his stock.

If that was the case, fine with me.

 Normally I don't like surprises, but when it is a surprise package from Dr. Claw, that is a very welcome surprise for me.

Yesterday, there was such a surprise awaiting me when I went to the post office.

Five DVDs !

Crash of Moons, Menace From Space, War of the Planets, Colossus and the Amazon Queen and Destroy All Planets.

The films I have recently been discussing here on this thread.

Many thanks Dr. Claw!

I don't see how you could burn all those DVDs and get them to me so fast!

But, I am sure glad that you did!

Will have more to say as I view the DVDs.

Think nothing of it, old chum.  I happened to get them to my curb box before the Postman made his rounds Saturday.  I don't know if that had any bearing on the speedy delivery of the discs or not.  Probably not if they only arrived today.  I've found most things sent in the USA make it to folks in two-to-three days. 

On a sour note: A care pack from our own Fish Lady seems to be MIA, as it was sent weeks ago, and no sign of it here.  In my 30-plus years of fooling around in the Post, there has been the occasional glitch like that, though it's exceedingly rare.  I'm still holding out hope that it might still show out of the blue.  I've seen that happen a time or two, also.

 Sorry that package from our own Fish Lady might be MIA, but sometimes things we thought might have been lost do eventually arrive very late.

Right now, I'm worried about sending a Christmas card to one of my still post office mail only,  never go on the net friends, who, due to all of my trials and tribulations I have not written to in TWO YEARS!  The same with Wild Bill.  This other friend was in bad health at one time, so I'm especially bothered, and hope I don't get the card returned in the mail.  I know that you have heard from Wild Bill fairly recently, so I'm not really worried about him, and hope to send him a post office letter soon.

I have noticed that when mail is returned as not deliverable, it often is a LONG time in getting back to me.

I don't like the idea of covering two different subjects in one post, but think we might be getting to the page change.

Back to the Mill Creek  stuff, specifically Colossus and the Amzaon Queen.  I've read numerous reviews, and two points are repeated:

1-the film was intended as a comedy, although some of these Peplum films are considered laughable when they were intended to be taken seriously

2-The film was very "gay," moreso than the usual, and probably unintentional intent of these films, although films with handsome "hunky" (is that term still used in the GLBT community?) musclemen would attract gays who like that type of man by that factor alone.

And, the word, "queen" in the title would also add to its gay content, although the word, queen in and of itself has nothing to do with gayness.  Again, another question:  is the term "queen" still a part of GLBT slang?  Or is it outmoded today?

Well, anyway, the reviewers thought that Rod Taylor considered "hunky"  but less so among those more muscle developed heroes, that Rod's character was supposed to be gay, but didn't really come across as gay.

Another thing pointed out is that this film was made at a time when Rod had been in major expensive Hollywood productions, working for Hitchcock and starring with Richard Burton and Liz Taylor, so why would he be in a relatively minor Peplum film?

It was pointed out that this was not a downturn in his career however.

I don't think I caught on to the gay aspect of the film the first time, if I did watch it all the way thru.  I'll be more aware and on the lookout for it this time.

The Mill Creek version was and is, scan and pan, and I did a net search, and found the Italian version in the proper widescreen, but it was in Italian language with no English subtitles, and, also, it ran close to two hours!

I watched only the title sequence which seemed like it would never end, and was an animated cartoon.  The Mill Creed version did not have those opening titles.

And, I don't like the idea of watching a film close to two hours long, so for the present I'll watch the Mill Creek print all the way thru at normal speed. But, it is nice to know that the widescreen version is available for free on u-tube, and I'll leave that possibility open for the future.

Again, many thanks to Dr. Claw for sending all those goodies.
