I don't know that "hunky" was ever gay slang. Not so as I ever heard.

Billy, have you read Monsters in the Closet? I know we discussed this some years ago but I don't recall the specifics. That author is almost as obsessed with gay subtext as you are.

 Deeky, I did check out that book from a library, and while the local county library didn't have it, they got it on loan from a Presbyterian Church college library.
The book didn't make much of an impression on me.  Certainly not enough to want to buy a copy.

I've probably mentioned Paul Roen's two High Camp books, on gay subtext in plain general audience films, as well as films that have intended gay interest. He did include Colossus and the Amzon Queen in one of the High Camp books.

On the slang matter, have you ever heard of "Hunk" being used as GLBT slang?

From my reading, a lot of stuff including slang words, that started out in the GLBT community have become mainstream used by society at large as well as GLBTs.

Oh well, time to stop discussing the use and disuse of slang words, and try to find some way to mash the picture down on my outmoded tube TV set, so I can watch The Crawling Eye in the proper widescreen aspect ratio, and not squeezed in like the Elongated Man.

And, to check out details of the film, War of the Planets, which I think was released in the USA in early 1971 on a travelling double feature with some other sf or horror film,  On the MGM print Dr. Claw sent me, it is letterboxed to the proper widescreen aspect ratio.

 I've now watched half of Colossus and the Amazon Queen.  It's an OK film, and while it's not all that good a film, to me, it is not as bad as some viewers claim.  It was not listed in Michael Weldon's Psychotronic film encyclopedia, which surprised me. 

It is not listed in the American Film Institute catalog of films released in the USA from 1961-1970, which also surprised me.

I wasn't surprised to find it listed in Steven H. Scheuer's Movies on TV, as one of 3 Colossus films, with a one star rating, saying, " . . . one of its major crimes is wasting Taylor in a comedy-relief role."

I was surprised that Leonard Maltin did not list the film in either the 1979-1980 or the 1990 edition of his TV Movies and Video Guide.

I am wondering if the film could be listed under titles without Colossus in the title?

IMDB reviewers were about evenly divided with some finding the film very bad, and others finding it good.

I am also wondering if the Italian version had more nudity in the scenes of the women undressing and skinny dipping?

Right now I am in no hurry to watch the original film to find out.

Some viewers thought the film was very boring and said it seemed to run forever, and they kept wishing it would end sooner than it did.

I didn't find it to be that way.

 It was in the C listings of Castle of Frankenstein's TV Movieguide that I first discovered the feature films made from the Rocky Jones Space Ranger shows, with Crash of Moons and The Cold Sun listed.

The CoF reveiwer must not have seen Crash of Moons, since there was no comment on that film's quality.  And, The Cold Sun was listed as simply being "poor."

Not unless Javier Bardem counts.

For whatever reason, Weldon does seem to skip over a lot of peplum films in his books.  I'd definitly call things like "Giant of Metropolis" psychotronic, but many others in that genre probably don't reallly qualify.

 Thanks for the post, Dr. Claw, and, I also would think that Michael Weldon also might have not considered Colossus and the Amazon Queen (or any other Colossus films, and again, it's possible the Colossus films might have had a different named hero in the title), to be Psychotronic.

I'll check Walt Lee's Reference Guide to Fantastic films, and see if any Colossus titles are listed.

Well, it's not so much that it's titled "Colossus".  It's just that many of those old sword n' sandal epics are rather dry palace intrigue tales.  Now, throw in a monster, witch, or some other fantastic elements, and then we're talking psychotronic.  But otherwise, they can be kind of stale, even with their "cast of thousands" and epic scenes of armies fighting and musclebound hunks in loincloths tossing Styrofoam boulders around.

I stopped after two.  Not sure why, as I thoroughly enjoyed the second one.

Watched a documentary on Netflix called "Haunters: The Art of the Scare" (2017).  I've actually seen at least four other docs on the home/yard-haunting trend for Halloween, but this one doesn't disappoint.  Unlike some of the others, this one doesn't offer any practical tips, but it's an intriguing look at trends in haunting, with a lot of footage given over to a couple who specialize in these extreme haunts where they literally abuse people.  There was a nice, short segment on the history of haunts which I enjoyed best.

Incidentally, my pal from work is at a haunt con in New Orleans at this very moment.  Lucky her.

 I watched the Italian original version of Colossus and the Amazon queen, no English subtitles, and full widescreen picture.

Don't know if it was a good investment of my time, although the picture quality was much better.

There wasn't any nudity in it, as I was hoping for.

Also watched the 1947 Queen of the Amazons, and it was OK.

Also watched The Crawling Eye, Trollenberg Terror, and the picture was not squeezed in, and was in usual non widescreen aspect ratio.

Still wish I could squeeze down the picture on my 1988 tube TV set with a fairly big picture.  Just measured and the picture is about 21 inches wide.

I have distinct memories of being able to squeeze down the picture on this one, but cannot find what button on the back of the TV set I used to do it with.

Could this be a false memory?

Maybe I was able to do it on another TV set I later got rid of?

I don't think so.

Tried looking up the model on Google, and apparently that TV set is so old I can't find anything on it.

There is a package of schematics  in a plastic container on the back of the set, and I have looked it over trying to find a picture height contrtol, but haven't been able to find it.

I suppose I'll have to give it another try, since that's all I've got.

Although the picture is mashed down to the proper aspect ratio on the DVD player on my desktop computer, the picture just freezes up, when I get into the opening scene.

The only alternative left is to optically view the picture thru the viewfinder of my video camera, since it does have a squeeze down control on it.

Will probably watch War of the Planets next.
