TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES CHANNEL VIDEO FEATURETTE: Drive-In Double Features! Thursday Nights in June 2011

Drive-In Double Features - Thursdays in June

It came from the drive-in! The al fresco movie theater, a rage of the 1950s and '60s, spawned a new type of film -- the creature feature aimed at Atomic Age teenagers. These youngsters found their own parked car a perfect place to fall into each other's arms while being scared silly by B-movie monsters, often representing the anxieties of the age, such as threats of nuclear war or science fun amok. What could be more nostalgic, or more fun, than reliving those warm summer nights of dreamy dates and dread-inducing double features?

TCM presents a summertime festival spotlighting some of the most sensational monsters to have graced those drive-in movie screens that once dotted the American landscape. No less than 15 of the films are TCM premieres, including four examples of the Golden Age of Japanese movie monsters. Godzilla, King of the Monsters (1956) is the Americanized version of the 1954 Japanese film Gijira, introducing the giant monster to U.S. audiences with re-dubbing and inserted scenes featuring Raymond Burr as a reporter who helps fight the menace. Also screening: Rodan (1957), Ghidorah: The Three-Headed Monster (1965) and Godzilla vs. Monster Zero (1970).

Other campy creatures making their TCM debuts include Tarantula (1955), a spider that grows to the size of large buildings; The Cyclops (1957), a one-eyed terror who's 25 feet tall; The Giant Behemoth (1959), a once-dormant dinosaur that rises from a polluted ocean emitting deadly radiation; and The Phantom from 10,000 Leagues (1955), another radioactive monster from the deep.

On the distaff side, we have Susan Cabot as The Wasp Woman (1959); Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958), starring Allison Hayes; and Queen of Outer Space (1958) which includes the great Zsa Zsa Gabor!

Torchwood Miracle Day July 11


Behind-The-Scenes with the cast and crew of "Torchwood: Miracle Day". Premieres July 8th at 10p e/p on STARZ

An Original Series by STARZ

One day, nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging — they get hurt and sick — but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight.

With all the extra people, resources are finite. It’s said that in four month's time, the human race will cease to be viable. But this can’t be a natural event – someone’s got to be behind it. It’s a race against time as C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy. The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex keeps asking “What is Torchwood?", he’s drawn into a world of adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human, forever.

Torchwood,” premiering July 8, stars John Barrowman (“Torchwood”, “Desperate Housewives”) as Captain Jack Harkness, Eve Myles (“Torchwood”, “Little Dorrit") as Gwen Cooper, Mekhi Phifer (“ER”, “Lie to Me”) as Rex Matheson and Bill Pullman (While You Were Sleeping, Independence Day) as Oswald Danes.

Hi everyone! Thanks for the questions.

And thank you to those of you who are now following @Waterkeeper. They are an amazing organization who are very close to my heart.

Also @RobinDunne starts directing tomorrow! Mwaaaahhhhh!!! Let the games begin. :)


AND @damiankindler turned much, much older today. Sad to see Peter Pan growing up....ish. And by ish...I mean not really. xoxo


Q1 - Robert Dunkel - Do you think modern CGI have enhanced or hindered the creative original thinking in modern film-making on TV and Movies?

A1 - I think it's only enhanced the story making process. Unless they replace all actors with CGI. Then it sucks big time.

Q2 - Katelin Beauvais - How are the cast and crew celebrating Damian Kindler's birthday?

A2 - We mock him openly. Naturally. Plus we got him gifts that are WAY cooler than he is.

Q3 - Elise Carroll - Hi Amanda!! Normandy was amazing! Will WILL every know what his grandfather did for Helen and the team? Xo

A3 - Probably not. Magnus never met him or realized who he was. Sad really.

Normandy 2

Q4 - @theonecalledjim - Hi, I Just brought a 2003 silver Renault Scenic and my daughter Rosie has asked if you could name her for us. :)

A4 - I asked Olivia and showed her a picture and she said Silvester or Bussy. So there you have it. :)

Q5 - @Nazmuko - I believe every woman has at least one bizarre object in her purse. Mine is wire cutters. What's yours?

A5 - Crayons. Toothbrush. Lip balm. Boring........ Oh, and a mini naquadah reactor...just in case. ;)


Q6 - @nesca275 - I'm from Spain and i watch your series in spanish, Have you ever listen to yourself in another language? what do you think?

A6 - I've heard myself in Japanese, French, German and Spanish. Maybe we should recast? They sound so good.

thanks everybody! xoxo
