|High Anxiety (1977)
Tuesday, August 7, 2018 - 7:00pm
Hillsdale Public Library
509 Hillsdale Avenue
Hillsdale, NJ 07642
This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month to view SF and other genre
The month's theme is Don't Make Me Laugh and the selection is Mel Brook's nod
to Alfred Hitchcock in High Anxiety.
Just after becoming the director of the Psychoneurotic Institute for the Very, Very
Nervous, Dr. Richard H. Thorndyke (Mel Brooks) is greeted by a series of
mysterious events. When his colleagues -- including the militaristic and
mustachioed Nurse Diesel (Cloris Leachman) -- become leery of his questions,
they accuse him of murder. Thorndyke's own mental health comes into question
as he struggles to clear his name in the midst of a crippling bout of a condition
known as "high anxiety."
|Day of the Doctor (2013)
Our selection of The Day of the Doctor from 2013 celebrated the 50th anniversary of Doctor
Who. It was a time-travel extravaganza, with three doctors, John Hurt the War Doctor,
David Tennant the Tenth Doctor and Matt Smith the Eleventh Doctor all meeting to save the
world. The double-digit turnout really enjoyed it. Fun continued at the Ridge Diner.
|The Incredible Hulk (1977)
Our What Makes A Monster theme for June was well represented by the pilot episode of The
Incredible Hulk (1977) starring Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno. The episode explained how Dr.
David Bruce Banner became The Hulk in a lab accident. The result of the accident becomes
evident whenever Dr. Banner's temper flairs - definite anger issues at work here. Very well
done and well received presentation.
