Apologies to one and all for the near extinction-level-lack of content at The Morgue lately. But between the annual September Sabbatical and the massive Hubrisween Review Marathon at the Brewery there just wasn’t time. Hopefully, that’ll change now that we’re moving on to November. Regardless, have a Happy Hallowe’en, Boils and Ghouls and as my treat to you, a wonderful set of ads that I’ve been sitting on for almost two whole years!

Needless to say, when I found the first ad for the titanic title bout between King Kong and Godzilla I got a little excited.

When I found the second ad, needless to say, I was a little concerned about the repeater, but figured, hell, we were heading for the weekend and building toward something really and truly special…

Well, shit.

Hrrrrmmmnnn … Trumped by Connie Francis. Nertz. Welp, hopefully, when it recycles to the Drive-In the ads will be a little more dramatic. And varied. And until I find those, check out these super-cool ads for the same film at the equally super-cool Friends of Marty Melville archive.

Albert Zugsmith steps in for Bill Alland for Universal International’s latest thinking-man’s fright-fest, which author Richard Matheson adapted from his own novel. The second feature is an Allied Artist crime programmer from Ben Schwalb, with Bill Elliot returning for the fifth and last time as L.A. detective Andy Doyle, who is on the lookout for a murderer when the prime suspect proves too pat.

FTLOF - Film Noir 01Reduced Size with Titles

This post is part of my rehash and continuation of the For the Love of Film Noir Blogathon originally held back in February of 2011. Thus and so, we will be heading down the rain-soaked streets and neon-drenched back alleys of Noirville again for the entire month of March. And along with all the old material migrating over from the old site, we’ll also be scattering around a lot of new stuff as well. Also of note, we’ll be posting them in chronological order to show how the genre evolved and progressed from the 1940′s through the late ’50s. And as an added bonus, I’ll be posting some vintage adverts to stuff I’ve always associated with the genre — cigarettes, booze and fashionable ladies.
