Public Domain Movie Time 3

Sometimes a man regrets being married. Sometimes he comes up with a creative way of fixing the situation.

In the classic public domain movie, THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL, Vincent Price, while hosting a party, makes good use of a marionette to end a marriage.

It’s great fun, brought to you by the master of B- Movie gimmicks, William Castle.  See it for free on Youtube.

Vincent Price contemplates regaining his bachelorhood in House on Haunted Hill

THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR

One of the all time great cinematic inspirations for the bachelor and the bachelor lifestyle, is the 1968 movie version of

THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR

amazon affiliate, you pay no more, I get a small commission when you buy this classic movie.

Steve McQueen, the king of cool, plays the rich playboy bachelor with a taste for bank robbery, and Faye Dunaway plays the insurance investigator out to get him.  Their cat and mouse game turns them into lovers, but she still is out to get her man, and not in a matrimonial way.

This is the version to see.  The 1999 version with Pierce Brosnan and a rather ugly woman as the insurance investigator, does not rate, IMHO.

Linda Lawson Up to Her Ears in NIGHT TIDE

It’s 1961 and a very young Dennis Hopper is a sailor who meets the very lovely Linda Lawson at a jazz club.  Romance blooms, but the “fact” she is a mermaid (or plays one at the carnival) shows that something fishy is going on. Catch the movie NIGHT TIDE in the public domain on Youtube. It’s another twisted bachelor tale you’ll no doubt enjoy.

 

Public Domain Movie Time

One of the great things about Youtube, is you can find just about anything there, including movies which are in the public domain.

One of the fun things to do on a rainy afternoon or a stormy night is watch public domain horror movies, with a bachelor twist.  That is a movie which involves an unmarried man in a twisted relationship with one or more women.

A classically bad movie you might enjoy, (given enough beer and/or weed) is

THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN’T DIE

It gives a whole new meaning to the concept of getting head from your significant other.
