PITTS10-1-68NOTLD-Teaser-WARNING

I seriously can not say anything more about Night of the Living Dead. It is a classic and wonderful film – it has been examined and reported on so much that all one can do is to watch it and love it. The pictures are from the film’s premiere engagement in Pittsburgh and a couple of other ads. I know it’s not much, but what little I have should at least be nice to look at.

The only thing I can add is my first time watching it. Thanks to a great friend who got me one of the many PD VHS tapes back around 1987, which was a very important time in my evolution. I got the chance to see what it was all about. It did change my life and extended my love of the kind of cinema I watch today. When things went sour for a while by Late 1988, the tape always brought back the good memories and when the friendship was back again (you know how these things go), the tape remained a very important part of the story.

More is planned to be compiled soon, but I will not ignore this day for NOTLD.
