BETA MAX TV SPINS A TALE OR TWO ON ITS “WEBS”-DAY LINE-UP!!!
You’ll be tangled up in views with our “Webs”-day programs today on Beta Max TV!
First some animated arachnids give flies fits in our two spidery shorts. From the Van Beuren Studios, FLY FROLIC (1932) finds fun times in a fly nightclub with a great rendition of “Kickin’ The Gong Around” by the featured singer who just happens to be a spider with a Jekyll and Hyde thing goin’ on – and who decides to make off with our hero’s date. And that won’t fly!
In the Fleischer Brothers creation COBWEB HOTEL (1936), two newly-web flies decide to spend their honeymoon in a hotel run by a spider. Sounds like time for a new travel agent! The husband – the Flyweight Boxing Champion – comes to the rescue, but will he make it in time!
Then we weave a web of mystery and horror with the cult-classic SPIDER BABY (1967). Lon Chaney, Jr. plays the caretaker of a family who has gone bugs and begins to become them as well – in a BIG way!
Come into our parlor! We know you’ll go positively buggy for the all spin filled features in our “Webs”-day line-up on Beta Max TV!
