Saturday morning pictures.

Post by Bluesboy » Tue Dec 28, 2004 12:53 pm

..
Went for years...absolutely loved it......a cartoon to start, usually woody woodpecker, or mighty mouse...remember him??? Then a serial...The original Flash Gordon has stayed with me all these years, filmed in the 30's, this was a spectacular, art-deco camp-fest that was light years ahead of its time, an overly-butch Buster Crabbe played our hero, sadly the names of the other actors has disappeared into the mists of time..But has there ever been a screen baddie like Ming the merciless?.....Oh yes....the clay-men freaked me out!!

An "Everlasting Strip" was/is a strip of toffee about 10" long by about 1" wide, and you could buy them at the local ABC Saturday morrning pictures, if you were really clever you could strech them to about 3 ft.

My mum used to kick my brother and I out of the house on a Saturday morning to go to the film show in the social club on our married quarters estate. 20p got you a bottle of "ginger" and a bag of crisps and a couple of hours of ancient movies, and as this was courtesey of the royal navy, and therefor a bit low tech, you also got to heckle the projectionist as he struggled to change reels.
