Dr. Caligari had always been the stuff of legend for me. I had heard many discuss this odd little porn-ish film full of cranial craziness, but I had never been able to get my hands on a copy. I finally stumbled across this film at an aging video rental store in North Hollywood, California. Eddie Brandt’s Saturday Matinee may very well be one of the last great video rental stores in existence. Their shelves are always packed with endless obscure titles, and it’s rare that I journey to the shop and not leave with some strangely enthralling and possibly extinct monster of a horror gem. Dr. Caligari is one such find.

• The Simpsons in its 25th season: showrunner Al Jean on why it endures
The first Simpsons episode I ever saw was Bart the Daredevil. I was 10 years old. The first girl I ever had an unrequited crush on recorded it for me and furtively slid the VHS across my desk at school.

Russell Johnson, who was best known as the Professor on “Gilligan’s Island,” died Thursday in Washington state of kidney failure, according to his longtime agent Michael Eisenstadt. He was 89.
From the 1950s through the 1980s, he guest-starred on numerous TV shows including “Twilight Zone,” “Lassie,” “Lou Grant,” “Dynasty” and “Alf.” But Professor Roy Hinkley on “Gilligan’s Island” was his most indelible role on the show that ran from 1964 to 1967.
His character was basically the straight man to the kooky cast of characters marooned on the island. “Gilligan’s Island” creator Sherwood Schwartz once described the character: “Very often the Professor is the one who prevents the rest of the group from taking rash actions. The others look to him and his great store of scientific knowledge, especially as it might affect their possibility of rescue.”
“Gilligan’s Island” had only a short run in primetime but has lived on in reruns for decades. »
