Double Door, now there’s a pre-Code I’d never heard of, sounds very interesting, with one imdb-er comparing it to Universal horror.
Love that Pyrex!

Many thanks for mentioning my review of Alias Nick Beal. Glenn Erickson wrote a great review of The Naked Spur. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to purchase it yet - not on Amazon at the moment.

Thank you all so much for your comments!

Kristina, I'm curious to check out DOUBLE DOOR too...hopefully it won't be too scary for me LOL. Isn't that Pyrex great?! I loved using my new set for Thanksgiving leftovers and will continue to enjoy it for the next few weeks!

Vienna, my pleasure! Hope you can get THE NAKED SPUR soon. It's in my review stack and I will review it here just as soon as I have time!! Excited to see the Blu-ray print.

Silver Screenings (Ruth), I'm happy to have mentioned!! I did have a great weekend, Thank you!!

Best wishes,
