Thanks for Visiting…Blog Update and a Couple of Birthdays

Right now, I would like to take the time to thank you for visiting this blog. The links to the reviews are a preview of my writing style, and I hope that you liked what you have read so far. There will be new reviews soon (Maybe with some luck, I will find something at a store I have not seen before and liked so much that I will have to write something about it!)

I also hoped that everyone had a great 4’th, or at least is doing very well.

Sandy Johnson, Judith Margret Meyers from the original Halloween herself is 54 today. She also appeared in films such as H.O.T.S. (With music by Danny Bonaduche, by the way!), Gas Pump Girls, and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.

It’s also the Birthday of Richard Starkey, MBE (68) – Better known to the world as Ringo Starr. Besides being a part of 60’s-70’s movie history through his appearances in the two classic Beatle films A Hard Day’s Night (1964) and Help! (1965) as well as the Midnight Movie favorite Magical Mystery Tour (Originally a British TV special from 1967) and the Yellow Submarine cartoon (1968), Candy (1969) with a good looking starlet in Ewa Aulin as well as appearances by many stars including Marlon Brando and John Austin, The Magic Christian (1969) with Peter Sellers and a great Badfinger soundtrack, Let It Be featuring a look into some not-so-happy days of The Beatles with at least a fine rooftop concert scene (1970), 200 Motels with Frank Zappa (1971 – A pretty funny flick, by the way), Blindman (1971), That Will be the Day with David Essex, and the Cinemation-Distributed Son of Dracula with Harry Nilson (1974), which still has yet to see an official DVD release, he’s far better known through his Drumming for The Beatles (Screen 13’s favorite Beatles Albums: Rubber Soul (1965), Revolver (1966), The Beatles (1968), and the Stateside-released compilation Magical Mystery Tour (1967)). His best known solo album was Ringo, the one with “Photograph,” while a number of Greatest Hits compilations have all the early hits. He will also be remembered for his Directing on the great concert film starring Marc Bolan and T. Rex, Born to Boogie (1972).
