Before he became everyone’s favorite Master of Horror, William Castle directed a handful of grim, moody noir mysteries for both The Whistler and The Crime Doctor film series from the 1940’s--- and this month TCM’s got ‘em! First, on Monday Nov 5th comes *The Whistler (’44), Power of the Whistler (’45), *Voice of the Whistler (’45), *Mysterious Intruder (’46), Secret of the Whistler (’46), and Return of the Whistler (’48.)

HEY KARSWELL, YOU MAY WANT TO LET PEOPLE KNOW THAT IF THEY DON'T HAVE TCM THEY CAN BUY THESE MOVIES ON EBAY FAIRLY CHEAP TOO. I CAN'T TELL IF THERE REAL RELEASES OR BOOTLEGS BUT JUST SEARCH BY TITLE....I'VE SEEN THEM AVAILABLE AS COMPLETE SETS TOO

>YOU MAY WANT TO LET PEOPLE KNOW

I think you just did. But thanks, I know the ebay dvd sets you're talking about too because I bought both The Whistler and I Love A Mystery sets from someone on there years ago, as well as a complete Henry Aldrich set too (anyone ever see Henry Aldrich Haunts a House from 1943 ? Great fun!)

I love old movies, haven't seen many old horrors though. I'll definitely check a few out. Thanx

>I CAN'T TELL IF THERE REAL RELEASES OR BOOTLEGS

The ebay sets of these films are definitely bootlegs. And they are copyrighted too, I don't know how people think they can get away with selling films merely because they "believe they are public domain." That excuse don't cut it in court.

SHAME
“The world is a dangerous place. Not because of the people who are evil; but because of the people who don’t do any thing about it.” –Albert Einstein-
One of the modus operandi of all arm suppliers and dealers in the world arms market is to give "commission" or "corruption" indirectly to the decision makers.

Payment of corruption money are done very professionally so that it does not incriminate the arms supplier, These arm suppliers will pay any amount of commission demanded as long as they are not implicated as some of them are PLC.

In this case, it will not be uncommon for, Altantuya Shaariibuu to be a nominee conduit for receiving the large amount of commission for arms deals. Her name could be used as a nominee but the funds (money laundered in Singapore and Hong Kong) received actually goes to the sexist(MISAGYNIST/WOMAN HATER) Abdul Razak Baginda/NAJIB TUN RAZAK the UMNO(NATZIS/RACISTS) pukita cronies who share in the loot. Mongolian nominees are preferred by Russian suppliers as most Mongolians speak Russian.

This Altantuya Shaariibuu relationship with Abdul Razak Baginda was obviously more than “lover” and it is crystal clear she know more than she should.

So, her explosives disintegration with C4 type episode with directives from the top. NAJIB TUN RAZAK, Rosmah, Khairy & Scomi who are involved in arms deals are clearly involved.

Who are the UMNO (XENOPHOBIC/ANTI-SEMITIC) minister who
are going to France, Spain, Italy, Russia & South Africa to buy arms recently?

Who are the other UMNO (MASTERS of DEATH) pukitra ministers beside Najib Tun Razak, who have visited Ulaan Baatar in the last three years??? The long and endless list of Malaysia’s international laws and human-rights violations can no longer be ignored!!!
This is a international security crisis that will be lethal to human rights world peace and safety.
The International community must demand a multi-national investigation on to the ASSASSINATION of Translator/Interpreter & Business women Altantuya Shaariibuu along with the Malaysia’s illegal arms trade! Mongolia must break all diplomatic relations with Malaysia and state this case to the INTERNATIONAL COURT of JUSTICE alert and demand the United Nations Security Council to take action and that The United States’ State Deportment to also take action for this is a Human’s rights violation and a security issue that affects the United States directly. Malaysians must demand answers to what these anti-Democratic UMNO(NATZI PARTY) pukitra Islamist FASCIST(With connections to HAMAS, Hizballah, AL-QAIDA and IRAN) are doing in the name of protecting the so called “Malay Race” ,”Islamic religion” and the “Nation” !
Why the U.T.K(THE “SS” MASTERS of DEATH/TERRORISTS),(NATZI)Army, who authorized SUPPLIERS of the malleable explosive believed to be "C4" (Composition 4). Bear in mind that Abdul Razak Baginda is a BROKER INTERMEDIARY/PROXY for those(ASSASSINS/EXECUTIONERS) HIDDEN TOP GUNS of the DEFENSE FORCE with the SUPPLIER (Specifically, the Malaysian Armed Forces). Therefore, it is a standard nature of forwarding of samples of their product in this case to be tested. Personally, I think these people, Baginda and his family, including the two police officers, are the most disgusting people on the globe as same as those terrorists who killed thousands of people on September 11, 2001 by using civilian airplane as missiles.

Who authorizes those people to use airplane as missiles? Who authorizes those people to use military explosives to kill an innocent woman?

[10/24/2007 10:11:04 PM] Avitov Mianoel Valdes-Munoz II says: Malaysia- Is it a good destination to learn English?
A fellow press friend of mine yesterday asked me which country, Malaysia or Singapore, is good destination to learn English. I advised her to study in Singapore, where I studied English too five years ago, a safe country that has strict rule of law. Malaysia is a country where an innocent Mongolian woman was shot to death and exploded into pieces by military-use C4 explosive fastened to her body. I will say this sentence to everybody asked me about Malaysia. This will be recalled for the people of Mongolia every time we think of Malaysia.

Malaysia is no longer a destination for Mongolians either to study or travel. I heard a number of Mongolians going Malaysia to study has been decreased a lot since last year when our beloved mother of two was killed in a jungle outside KL.

I have been to Malaysia actually, when I was studying in Singapore. I remember that when I was under passport control at the Singapore-Malaysia border, a Malay passport controller smiled at me and told me "Bat Khaan! Genghis Khan!". He said something to his fellow customs officers in Malaysian and told me "Welcome to Malaysia!". My first impression on the country of Malaysia had this wonderful start. I felt like I was the first Mongolian coming to Malaysia. We will not hear this nice welcoming from a passport controller of Russia now, a country what we believed as "brother in steel friendship" for over 70 years in the past under Soviet ally.

At that time, how can we know that a Mongolian woman will be killed in this country brutally and her entrance record will be deleted from immigration database. Personally, I think these people, Baginda and his family, including the two police officers and Najib Tun Razak in who gave the order, are the most disgusting people on the globe as same as those terrorists who killed thousands of people on September 11, 2001 by using civilian airplane as missiles.

Who authorizes those people to use airplane as missiles? Who authorizes those people to use military explosives to kill an innocent woman?

Hey Avitov guess what? I'm never going to read this comment from you. It's too long and full of stuff that doesn't interest me. Why don't you leave your stain somewhere else where some other person can ignore it like I'm going to. I'll leave it here though so everyone else can ignore it too.
