ZOTZ - Bernard Green - "Don't Pull That Finger" (1962)
"ZOTZ!!" William Castle would fit in real good around here because he was a hoaxter and a jokester! In this particular case, he chose comedian Tom Poston for the lead as Prof. Jonathan Jones in this film! Tom Poston was an incredible talent who could been seen on the late 50's TV show, "The Steve Allen Show." Tom was a regular who did a number of skits in the mighty triumvirate that included himself, Louis Nye, and Don (Barney)Knotts! A trio to be reckoned with, without a doubt!!!
Tabonga will have a unique William Castle outing for you on Wednesday, and I'll be back on Friday to wrap up our tribute to the wild man of the week, William Schloss, a name he literally translated to get his much better known handle, William Castle!
