DAY ONE of The William Castle Blogathon & Fun with GIFs: The Castle Edition!
July 29 is a special day in the wonderful world of William Castle; it is the 54th anniversary of The Tingler’s theatrical premiere.
***HAPPY 54TH ANNIVERSARY TO THE TINGLER!***
Dr. Warren Chapin (Vincent Price) is attacked by a tingler while he is sleeping.
***FUN WITH GIFS: THE CASTLE EDITION!***
Fun with GIFs is a weekly feature here in the Dungeon. Eventually I might move to making GIFs with video captures which makes for a smoother and slicker presentation but in the meantime I have an old school GIF animator. It works like a picture flip book. You have to collect a flowing series of images which is more difficult than you might think. I have had to scrap dozens of them! It is a constant learning experience. William Castle films are very GIF friendly!
Homicidal (1961)Emily is one of my favourite characters from a William Castle film. Here Emily (Joan Marshall) has a “moment”.
William Castle films are special for many reasons and one of those reasons are some truly memorable opening sequences and credits. This is a trio of three particularly fun pre-credit sequences.
