PINK ANGELS / Plateau Productions - 1972

We'll end July with this wild 'n' weird biker flick, it's all about a group of transvestite bikers that wheel their way to Los Angeles, making for a lot'sa rubbernecking. Filmed at Sierra Hwy & Soledad Canyon, Santa Clarita, CA.

This thing stars John (HANNAH, QUEEN OF THE VAMPIRES) Alderman, Henry (METEOR) Olek, Bruce THE THING WITH TWO HEADS) Kimball, Michael (THE BABY) Pataki and Dan (GRIZZLY ADAMS) Haggerty.

What better way to start a flick than a bunch of arty shots of giant concrete pipes... Right?!

Wow, my favorite place to go in the late fifties! Gimme a Papa Burger, onion rings and an ice cold A&W Root Beer! They served root beer and orange soda, you could order a Mad Dog, which was half root beer, half orange!

Anyway, the Pink Angels roll into town, first, dude runs over the "A&W Loves You" sign and totally clobbers the guy in the side car on the head, and, he's not even wearing a freakin' helmet!! Then, they have an epic food fight before they all cool off...

I had to show this pic because those diesel engines going through town were such a common sight back then.

As in so many biker flicks back then, our guys like to party just outside the city limits... Love those candles on the table!

Man, their threads are really eye catching, their personal sign of individualism!

Well, the wild girls from town show up and a sex party ensues! Even the girls' madam joins in on all the drunken fun!

Here's a great shot of Dan, a proud member of the Pink Angels!..

Things get even weirder when these two bikers get some therapy from this petite nudie-cutie gal... Hey, that's something I never owned, red long johns!!

The gay guys in the Pink Angels go shopping for some new clothes to strut around in. Here, they entertain the shoe guy who sells them some high heels!

Wait a minute now... Something doesn't seem quite right here!!!..

So, the military's interested in the Pink Angels for some goddamn reason, and, they capture one of the girls at a party and interrogate her...

The General gets his simple little mind blown when the 'girl' takes his wig off!!

To fix the problem, the General has everyone hanged outside his office, bringing this thing to an abrupt end! Go figure... So, Eegah!! will be back Wednesday for our first post in August, a month that will have even more cool junk for us!

IT! - "Curse Of The Golem" (1967)

Tonight's Saturday Night Special is one of the few monster movies from the 60's that we haven't done yet, so let's just check it out, because although it's kind of silly, it's really not too bad!

It's called "It!" and/or sometimes, "Curse Of The Golem!"

The star of the show is Dungeon perennial favourite Roddy (Planet Of The Apes) McDowall!

So just what is a Golem anyway? In Jewish folklore, a Golem is an animated anthropomorphic
being that is magically created entirely from inanimate matter like clay or mud! In this film, it is a sculpture!

This Golem appears to be having his way with this guy, and although he can move his arms and legs, this time he just fell straight down and crushed the guy under the weight of his 3000 pounds!

I love London's swingin' sixties neon lights!!

This is Roddy's wishshewas girlfriend as played by Jill (Horror House) Haworth in this dream sequence!

Roddy manages to take the Golem out for a destructive walk! I guess everybody was too stoned to notice!!

This shot is the epitome of non-hippie 1967 in my less than humble opinion!

Roddy can't take any more of the mayhem and murder and commands the Golem to go away and not come back, and when that doesn't work, he tries to set him on fire!!

Next thing he knows, the Golem is back in the museum!

Great shot of Roddy's pad!

The Golem is a lost and lonely soul! He was just doing what was asked of him!

The Golem is one tough customer! First they try and take him out with a bazooka blast, and then a tank, and when that doesn't work...........

...............They go completely mind-boggling insane.......and...

......Hit the Golem with a nuclear bomb!! WTF?!!

And even that doesn't stop the thing!!!

In the end, the only thing that can destroy the Golem, is the Golem himself, and that's what he chooses to do, and he walks off into the ocean and away from all the destruction caused by man that was far worse than anything he had done!! Talk about a story about misunderstanding! Wow!!

PIGS IS PIGS / Warner Bros. - 1937

It's time for some color, here's a great WB cartoon that fills the bill... The story's about Piggy, he's obsessed with food and that's all he can think about. That night, after being a pig at the dinner table, Piggy has a very interesting nightmare about food...

This cartoon was produced by Leon Schlesinger, the voice actors were Billy Bletcher as the Mad Scientist (with 463 acting credits, mostly voice over, his last credit was for the 1971 TV movie where he played Pappy Yokum), Bernice (all cartoon voice over) Hansen plays Piggy and Martha (THE BEATNIKS) Wentworth as Mama Pig.

Instead of playing with his siblings, Piggy likes to sit there, just thinking about his favorite subject... FOOD!!

He's the first one to the dinner table and tries to grab some fruit before the main course is served, but, Mama Pig smacks his hands with a big stick!

Piggy ties all the plates of spaghetti together, so, when he inhales his food, he gets it all. Mama Pig gives him an ear full for being such a little pig!

Well, it's time for beddy-by and someone turns on the bathroom light for a fast pit stop!

Piggy can't sleep because ha can't stop thinking about that delicious food! Then, he's suddenly at the door of a scientist who invites him in...

He asks Piggy if he wants to sit in the chair and enjoy some tasty food. He says yes, but, it's a trick and Piggy ends up strapped down in a very scientific looking seat instead!

Piggy drops down into the basement where the Mad Scientist works the special control system.

It seems like the scientist is going to help Piggy out with his obsession with food, the first thing up is a giant bowl of soup which feeds him with spinning spoons!

Twelve bananas is the second course, squeezed out of the peels and go right down his throat!

Then, it's time for ice cream, blasted into his mouth with much force!

Next up is spinning pies, which he eats three of... Oh, my tummy!!

The deed is done and Piggy looks like he's actually full for a change!

He's free to leave, so, he sloshes along but notices a tasty turkey leg, just sitting there!

And, Piggy goes... KA-BOOM!! He's had one bite too many!

Well, he wakes up only to realize that it was just a bad dream!... WHEW!! And, when Mama Pig calls the little piggies to breakfast, Piggy's there in half a second and starts shoveling the grub down his throat!.. Which proves, PIGS IS PIGS!! So, we're back tomorrow when Eegah!! will have something special for a Saturday!
