This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month to view SF and
other genre related films.
The Wild Wild West is an American science fiction western television
series that ran on the CBS television network for four seasons from
September 17, 1965 to April 4, 1969.
Charming gunslinger James West and Artemus Gordon, an inventor
and master of disguise, are the country's first Secret Service agents,
travelling the Old West at the behest of President Ulysses S Grant,
fighting villains, encountering beautiful women and dealing with
fiendish plots to take over the world.
|I Walked With A Zombie (1943)
Our theme of Caribbean Dreams was well represented by the 1943 film I Walked with a
Zombie a Val Lewton production. Starring Frances Dee and Tom Conway, the story takes
place in the Caribbean on a sugar plantation where Conway's wife (Christine Gordon) has a
mysterious affliction . Dee is hired to be her nurse and becomes drawn into the island's dark
culture of voodoo and zombies. Is the mistress of the plantation a zombie? Are there dark
secrets? Quite atmospheric and well shot for such an old film. Festivities continued at a
nearby Friendly's. Fun evening.
Join us next month for Mr. Holmes (2015) starring Ian McKellen.
Our Spice of Life theme centering on India for the month was well represented by the Disney
animated feature, The Jungle Book. The 40th anniversary DVD (1967 - 2007) was an
excellent presentation. The voices of the characters - Sebastian Cabot, Sterling Holloway,
Louis Prima, George Sanders and especially Phil Harris as the bear Baloo - help create vivid
characterizations. The musical numbers, particularly The Bare Necessities sung by
Baloo/Harris, added to the film. Festivities continued at the nearby Friendlys. Nice evening
