Wonder Woman (1975-1979)
Superhero Wonder Woman made the leap from DC Comics to the
small screen on the 1975 to 1979 series starring Lynda Carter. The
Amazon beauty from Paradise Island fights ne'er-do-wells with her
exceptional athleticism, not to mention bullet-deflecting bracelets and
|Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter (2012)
Our alternative history theme of History That Never Was? was well represented by the film
Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (2012). I had no intention of showing it, but some club
members had seen and enjoyed it, so I relented. I'm glad I did! It was certainly different,
showing a side of Lincoln that never existed (vampire hunting), but was fun nonetheless. It
reminded me of another period film portraying an alternate history - Pride and Prejudice and
Zombies - that turned out to be a fun movie. Our double digit attendance enjoyed the
experience, with most going to the Ridge Diner to discuss the film, among other things, until
the wee hours.
|Woman In Black (1989 PBS)
The weather could not have been more cooperative! A dark, stormy night for a gothic movie
featuring a ghost! The 1989 PBS version of The Woman in Black was our Halloween themed
film. The Woman in Black is a 1983 horror novel by Susan Hill, written in the style of a
traditional Gothic novel. The plot concerns a mysterious spectre that haunts a small English
town, heralding death. You do not want to see the woman in black around town or in the
graveyard - bad luck if you do! Our screened version from 1989, had a screenplay by Nigel
Kneale. The Daniel Radcliffe 2012 remake was decent, but I felt the original was much more
potent, more atmospheric.
