8B The Sail Lake Tribune, Friday, Juij 2S, 1967 Television Today 'New' Horror Films Ready for Fall By Harold Schindler Tribune Staff Writer Just at a time when networks are beginning to scratch (he bottom of the barrel as far as motion picture Inventones are concerned a new batch of science-fiction films has become available. Acquisition of 15 fresh 90-minute thrillers insures a supply of low-budget bread- and-butter flickers which the networks have found to be so popular with late show viewers. The First Epic The first of these epics will be seen in October, with the final offering scheduled for television screens in July of 1969. Sample titles; "Maneat- er of Hydra," "Attack of the Robots," and "Year 2889." A p p r o p r i ately tagged "horror" films (but for rea- sons other than those intended by the distributor), releases such as these ,'iave consistently found favor with home audiences. Their popularity in the Salt Lake area became evident when KCPX-TV (Channel 4,) shifted the Joey Bishop Show from its Friday night spot to Sunday in order to retain Nightmare Theatre. Between now and 1969 you can expect to see these monuments to the film industry on your.home sets: "Beast of Morocco." "Creatures of Destruction," "Die Monster Die," "Godzilla vs. The Thing," "Majin, the Monster of Terror," "Mars Needs Women," "Monster from a Prehistoric Planet," "Night Star-Goddess of Electra," "Time Travelers," "Voyage to the End of the Universe," and "War of the Monsters,". The truth, now way down deep doesn't that fill you with emotion? Bing Crosby wili return as host to Hollywood Palace when it opens the new season September 5, on KCPX, Channel 4. According to ABC, Bing is "a good luck charm." While Hollywood Palace was one of the better shows last year, its fill-in, Picadilly Palace, deserves a happier fate than the usual trip to oblivion reserved for summer replacements. Picadiliy's two regulars, Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise are funny. Additional .adjectives are unnecessary. FOE WHAT IT'S WORTH: Dale Robertson, star of Iran Horse, (KCPX, Channel 4) has been named honorary chairman of the California Christmas Seal campaign. Fresh supply of TV horror films fattened schedules. COLOR CALLS *2.95 crrr LIMITS BIACK & WHITE $2.00 DAY & NIGHT |
