Unfogettable For More Reasons Than One, 26 December 2007
Author: ( from Scranton, Pa.

In the late sixties (Pre-VCR) we had three UHF stations in our area, and they all signed off at 12 midnight. Unfortunately I worked second shift at a local factory and was just getting out at that time. One of our stations, bowing to public pressure, agreed to remain on after midnight and show movies. "Great...Right? "No, Not so great!!! They purchased four films, one of which was "Woman In A Dressing Gown", and showed them over and over again. "My God, It was just like "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" I still have the dialogue running through my head even today. (He covers everything I make in sauce...Dollops of sauce) The remaining films were(in order of boredom):

The Burning Hills, Teenagers From Outer Space,and Dangerous Youth
