8 pm est Here Comes Peter Cottontail

9 pm est For Your Height Only

Here Comes Peter Cottontail (1971) is one of the more bizarre Rankin Bass holiday specials, and follows the exploits of the famed bunny Peter Cottontail as he tries to avoid a mad power grab by his malevolent competitor for chief Easter Bunny status in April Valley, Irontail. Irontail rides a bat and tries to establish chocolate tarantulas as an Easter staple, and is voiced by Drive-In Mob favorite, the great VINCENT PRICE. Danny Kaye, Casey Kasem, Joan Gardner and voiceover legend Paul Frees all lend their talents to the proceedings. Peter travels through time in a Yestemorrowbile with a French caterpillar named Antoine to try and set things right, since this was made in 1971 and that sort of thing made sense then.

For Your Height Only (1981) is a Filipino actioner that stars another Drive-in Mob favorite, the amazing 2’9″ tall Weng Weng, as Agent 00. Jet packs and romance with dangerous women are involved.

#driveinmob gets Chauffered by Bruce Lee with THE GREEN HORNET

8:00 PM Adventures of Captain Marvel – Chapter 4 Death Takes the Wheel
8:30 PM The Green Hornet (1974 Movie)

8:00 PM Adventures of Captain Marvel – Chapter 4 Death Takes the Wheel (1941) We continue with the next exciting chapter in the Republic serial! Cap continues to wantonly beat badguy ass! Tom Tyler is great as Captain Marvel, who changes to Frank Coghlan, Jr. as Billy Batson when he utters the immortal word SHAZAM! Will he defeat the Scorpion!?
8:30 PM The Green Hornet (1974 Movie)  Several episodes from the “Green Hornet” t.v. series haphazardly cobbled together into a “movie.” (Episodes included The Hunters And The Hunted,  Invasion From Outer Space, The Hornet And The Firefly, The Preying Mantis, Ace In The Hole, and Beautiful Dreamer.) Van Williams is actually pretty fantastic as The Green Hornet and his publisher alter ego Britt Reid, but Bruce Lee as Kato overshadows him as his lethal chauffeur/sidekick, Kato.

WE’RE STARTING A RUMBLE WITH TEEN DELIQUENTS, DADDIO!

beatgirl

8:00 PM Beat Girl
9:30 PM High School Confidential

Beat Girl (1960) The vivid, instructing portrayal of modern youth who grow up too soon and live it up too fast! Edmond T. Gréville directs as star Gillian Hills (later seen in Blow Up and A Clockwork Orange) rebels against her widowed father and new bride with a past by falling in with the wrong crowd, all while encountering british pop singer Adam Faith, Drive-In Mob favorite Nigel “Hercules” Green, a blink-and you’ll miss it appearance by a young Oliver Reed, Shirley Anne Field from Peeping Tom and The Damned AND Christopher Lee as the man “who makes a living from the strip tease clip joint.” The John Barry Seven & Orchestra provide the amazing, rocking, pre-James Bond theme soundtrack - Barry’s first.

High School Confidential (1958) Tomorrow is a drag, pops, the future is a flake! Cult favorite director Jack Arnold puts stars Russ “war of the Gargantuas” Tamblyn, Mamie Van Doren, Jan Sterling, John Drew, Jackie “Uncle Fester” Coogan, and Michael “Teenage Werewolf” Landon through the paces as Tamblyn moves to a new town and tries to become the tops stud of the local drug gang, the Wheelers and Dealers! Jerry Lee Lewis rocks out as himself!

#driveinmob is POST MOBPOCALYPSE with a B-Movie Maniacs team up! Damnation Alley and a Boy and His Dog

3/6/14
bmm31

We’re teaming up with B-Movie Maniacs for some apocalyptic fun!

Dean-Jeffries-damnation-alley

8:00 PM Damnation Alley
9:45 PM A Boy and His Dog

8PM Damnation Alley (1977), directed by Jack Smight, was the sci-fi blockbuster that 20th Century Fox pinned its hopes to in 1977, and let’s just say it’s a good thing their other sci-fi release, Star Wars, also came out that year. Jan Michael Vincent and George Peppard lead a cast that includes Paul Winfield, Jackie Earle Haley (fresh from his Bad News Bears appearances), and Dominique Sanda, who apparently took time away from appearing in such foreign film classics as The Conformist and The Garden of the Finzi-Continis to battle flesh-eating cockroaches.

9:45 PM A Boy and His Dog (1975) directed by character actor (and frequent member of Sam Peckinpah‘s stock company) L.Q. Jones, based on stories by cantankerous author Harlan Ellison, follows Vic, played by Don Johnson, and his telepathic dog Blood (voiced by Tim McIntyre) as they wander the post apocalypse.
