This 1966 horror-comedy is a favorite of so many people- including our friend, wrestling icon Jim Cornette- and features lots of familiar faces that you’ll recognize from classic TV shows. Don Knotts is hilarious , playing is stock character, loaded with phony bravado while shaking like a leaf in reality- and his love interest, Joan Staley, is definitely worth facing any frights for! You’ll recognize the music styling of Vic Mizzy, who provides the soundtrack- he did lots of theme and background music for classic TV shows as well, including “The Addams Family”.
This “Barney” entry in our “Boris and Barney?!” theme this month runs tonight at 10 pm eastern/pacific, 9 pm central, and please check your local listings for the time it runs where you are. In Chicago, viewers get a little more “Boris” in the original “Frankenstein”- on our sister station, WCIU, the U, at 11 am.
I still have the Main Tile available for down load or to listen to on sound cloud. What a great movie to sit and share with the family tonight. I loved watching this a few years back with my oldest so maybe tonight my youngest will tune in. So no reason to watch the Hallmark Channel tonight.
