Invaders From Mars

In this edition of Endyr's Movie Theater I am featuring the classic 1953 movie "Invaders From Mars", starring Jimmy Hunt.  This version is so much better than the 1986 remake.  By-the-way, "Invaders from Mars" was the first feature film ever to show aliens and their spacecraft in full color.  Safe journeys to all the fans of Endyr's Movie Theater , wherever you may be.

Flash Gordon Conquers The Universe │ Larry (Buster) Crabbe

In this edition of Endyr's Movie Theater I am featuring all twelve chapters of the 1940 serial "Flash Gordon Conquers The Universe", starring Larry (Buster) Crabbe, who incidentally, was raised in Hawaii, and graduated from Punahou School, which is the same school that former President Barack Obama graduated from.  Buster always claimed that he was 1/16 Hawaiian.  His family has a long history in Hawaii going back to the days of the Hawaiian Monarchy, where his grand uncle Horace Crabbe was chamberlain to King Lunalilo.  His grandfather Clarence Crabbe, was the president of the Territorial Senate of Hawaii from 1902 to 1904, and has been called the father of the Republican party in Hawaii.  So, as you can see, Buster's roots go way back in Hawaii.  Safe journeys to all the fans of Endyr's Movie Theater, wherever you may be.

Dracula

In this edition of Endyr's Movie Theater I am featuring the 1931 classic film "Dracula" that was directed by Tod Browning, and starred the immortal Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula.  It is not a commonly known fact that Carfax Abbey was the London home that Dracula purchased through Jonathan Harker, his real estate agent.  It was here that Dracula would come to meet the lovely Wilhelmina (Mina) Murray, and spread his reign of terror far beyond Transylvania.  Movie adaptations of the original Bram Stoker novel combined the Asylum and Carfax Abbey.  This provided for a much richer environment in which to stalk Count Dracula.  The most obvious example of this is in the 1992 movie "Bram Stoker's Dracula", where the vampire hunters, led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing, enter Carfax Abbey to destroy the crates containing the native soil that Dracula had brought over with him by boat from Transylvania.  Safe journeys to all the fans of Endyr's Movie Theater, wherever you may be.
