Anybody seen the movie "Matinee" starring John Goodman? I watched this last night, and what a superb movie it is, set in Key West during the Cuban missile crisis. Its main attraction is Lawrence Woolsey, played brilliantly by Goodman, who is a spoof of William Castle the 1950's B movie producer, who produced all those creature features, with gimmicks such as electrically wired theater seats (The Tingler), skeletons flying over the theater audience (House on Haunted Hill), and Life insurance requirements for patrons in case thay died of fright during these wonderfully corny movies! If you have'nt seen this movie, do try to get a VHS or DVD of it. You will not be disappointed- a wonderfully funny film which any 50's creature feature film buff will love. And to those of us who grew up during the height of the cold war, it remind us of how close we all came to destruction.

The best of all worlds- 8mm, super 8mm, 9.5mm, and HD Digital Projection,

Is this the one with Kellie Martin as a teenage girl? Funny, she's the first thing (er, person) I think of in that movie. [Smile]
