    Guess I overpaid. Well, I prefer dealing through Amazon anyway.

    I'd forgotten all about Bagdad Cafe.. Saw it at the cinema many years ago... charming little film and it had Jack Palance.

    Something new -


    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1811315/
    In this throwback to the original 1966 Batman movie, FDR rides a "wheelchair of death" to stop the world from werewolves who carry the polio virus, including werewolf versions of Hitler, Mussolini, and Emperor Hirohito.
    Trailer has potty language.

    The strangest movie I'd ever seen is, without a doubt, the Franco-Czech animated film Fantastic Planet (1973). I saw it in the theatre as a kid -- it was a double feature playing along with the film "documentary" Chariots of the Gods. It can't get any weirder than that!

    I don't think this one qualifies as "weird," but it's certainly "forgotten": "In the Devil's Garden." I saw it on a double bill in 1974 or so, right after "The Exorcist" made anything with "Devil" in the title a commercial property. My memory says it's a neat little British crime story, an actual mystery with a well-concealed criminal.

    Another that might come under "weird" is this one: "The Beast Must Die." It's a closed mystery too, but the mystery this time is "Who is the werewolf?" It wasn't the best photographed movie I'd ever seen. But it was rather fun, and includes a "werewolf break" -- a sort of "Challenge to the Viewer" in the way the Ellery Queen series with Jim Hutton would use it a year or so later.

    not golden era at all but while on vacation in 5th or 6th grade - somewhere in the mid/late 80's i remember them playing "Nice girls dont explode" on the hotel tv, it was on 3-4 times a day on the one cable tv channel they got. totally weird premise and no one ever knew what movie i was talking about when I talked about it until i found it online. so i guess it qualifies as forgotten
    This old thing? Why, I only wear it when I don't care how I look.

    I was nine or ten when I first saw this one. Definitely thought it was weird then but I still like it.

    'Death Line' - classic gritty early 70's horror, very influential, especially on John Landis.

    I remember seeing that one, too, when it came out...

    Wild Weed (1949) is definitely up there. (Alternate, and IMO better title is She Shoulda Said No!) Supposedly an anti-drug movie, it is just an exploitation film which played in the "wrong side of the tracks" theaters, much like Reefer Madness. And like the latter film, the characters in Wild Weed act more like they're on LSD rather than marijuana. Interestingly, Lila Leeds was cast as the lead actress because she had been arrested in 1948 with Robert Mitchum for possession of marijuana. Stalwart Lyle Talbott and "newcomer" eye-bulger Jack Elam "round out" the cast of this low-budget, low-intelligence film.
