QUATERMASS 2 - James Bernard - "In The Pub" (1957)

Arguably the first ever movie to use the number 2 in a title to signify that it was a sequel, "Quatermass 2" is part of an ongoing series of TV shows and movies that has continued up until 2005! We predict it must be about time for a new one!!!!

Madelyn sez, "You'll drink Irish and like it!"

This scene consists of the entering of the pub, with a jig playing, and after the blonde Madelyn shows them how it's really done, she walks over to the jukebox and plays a very swingin' tune.

Right about here the facade is dropped and the questions really start flying. Favorite lines are "I'm a police officer!" "We don't have any police here." "Well, you have now, turn that music off!!"

We've never written anything about James Bernard before, and that is quite astonishing considering his body of work as soundtrack composer. Actually, there are too many titles to list them all, but just for instance, besides a couple of "Quatermass" films, you've got the absolute best Hammer classics, "Dracula" and "The Curse Of Frankenstein," then, there's "X: The Unknown," "The Hound Of The Baskervilles," The Terror Of The Tongs," "The Gorgon," "Torture Garden" and lots lots more!!!

This movie is over 50 years old and still very cool!!! Imagine that!! Think about it! Wink, wink, nod, nod! "2 beers and a double!!"
