THE SKELETON OF MRS. MORALES / Alfa Film S.A. - 1960
It's South Of The Border Friday at The Dungeon, this time we gots a weird black comedy about a sexually repressed taxidermist who finds solace in his job while his frigid and deformed wife psychologically tortures him because of his devotion to stuffed animals!! This is a very rare movie which the DVD currently sells for $80 on Amazon!
Here's a nice little sound clip from this wild flick for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button over by our stuffed Blob, NOW, Rufus The Gnat!.. Here's a taste of... THE SKELETON OF MRS. MORALES!
The movie starts with nosey women keeping an eye on local taxidermist Dr. Morales because he's, you know, loco in the cabeza!
If that isn't bad enough, even the men want to know... What's up Doc?
The doctor's wife is a frail but demanding woman and likes to tongue lash her hubby for fun.
His answer is to have a big chug of straight vodka and spend time with his little buddies!
The wife goes out for awhile so the doctor tells the maid to cook him a thick steak with fries!
Nice exchange of glances!
Couldn't resist showing these late fifties toys and kids attire! The battery powered airplane's propellers spun when turned on.
The doc's wife has mysteriously disappeared so city officials visit his workshop to question him. Gee, I wonder whose skeleton that is there?..
Anyway, they take the doctor in and lock him up in a cell in the courtroom!! (better hope he doesn't have to go number two) There, he listens to witnesses' testimony and sometimes he consults with the Skeleton of Mrs. Morales!
But, the doc's acquitted and it's a gay time for all! Bring on the booze!! (hic!)
It's a wild finish as a parade of ten caskets and followers makes its way down the lane to the cemetery with the camera turning upside down on the final casket! Now, that's art!! Looks like we'll return tomorrow for another Saturday Night Special!!
