THE PHANTOM EMPIRE

Thanks for Jim for pointing out to me the frankly mental 1930's Singing Cowboy/Science Fiction cross-over serial "The Phantom Empire" staring Gene Autry. Looks like they're cleaning-up and restoring a bunch of Autry's films for DVD release to celebrate his centennial this year, which might be interesting...I've got an unrestored "Riders of The Whistling Pines" wh/ I intend to check out in the next few days...I'm thinking of having a double-bill w/ "Entrails of a Virgin" (Thanks, Mr. B)...



(Shame it's not "The Phantom Ranch" (as in, er, "Wank Me Daft" infamy - sorry, Void Jazz in-joke there...))

Subterranean cities...Cowboys Vs. Robots: man, I loooove this shit...
