THE SADIST - Arch Hall Sr. - "SOUNDCLIP NO LONGER AVAILABLE" (1963)

Interesting turn in Arch Hall's career where his band The Archers and their music weren't even used in the movie. Riveting film with incredibly small cast & amazing cinematography by the very talented William Zsigmond. Continuing in the family tradition, Arch Hall Sr. does the narration during the opening credits. The music is by Paul Sawtell & Bert Shefter. Another excellent example of vision over extravagance. The Hall's could make a better film with 50 bucks than today's major studio's make with 50 million. Figure that into the whole picture of today's economy, & you'll know exactly what the heck is wrong with the world today. Happy New Year!

Arch Hall Jr. reminds me of a grown-up dennis the Menace. Check out that pout at the top.
