Guess Larry missed last week’s trailer for The Man with the Golden Arm, which was five minutes of Otto Preminger doing a Castle/Hitchcock turn.
And yeah, prank calls still exist, kind of. They’ve been driven to extinction mostly through Caller ID, though, not texting.
I tried to watch I Saw What You Did once and just couldn’t get into it. I love the idea of William Castle, but not his movies. That said, you’d think I’d at least like Matinee (1993). Nope. Once you’ve seen Ed Wood (1994), that’s it.
