    Big House U.S.A.---Tough, dark and gritty noirish 1950s prison picture with a great cast.

    Think I saw a "gif" earlier @ this thread of a character from it, but the film's name was not cited:

    Flesh Gordon.

    I think one could arguably label most of Bill Asher's Sixties "beach" flavoured films as "B" quality. Certainly the acting, as even the great Buster Keaton, when he appeared, was, um, compromised. Rickles did about the best job @ that series. Don't get me wrong: I have copies of all of them and love them, but top-drawer productions they ain't.

    Tales From The QuadeaD Zone (Chester Novell Turner, 1987)

    I cannot begin to describe this very strange, cheap production.

    Yeah, along with Lon Chaney Jr. and William Tallman. The movie also had Ralph Meeker and Willis "nothing's too good for the man who shot Liberty Valance" Bouchey. Meeker played a cold, emotionless child kidnapper nicknmamed the Iceman by the press which gives Crawford a great line when Meeker shows up at the prison--"The Iceman cometh".

    The Big House flick looks fun. Reminds me of a B-grade flick that TMC shows every so often, but on the ladies' side: Caged (1950). Might've been the first of the "tough broads in the slammer" films. "File out you tramps!" heh

    TCM just ran It Came From Outer Space, 50s schlocker where the monster looked like a giant pizza with a single eye in the middle of it. Right up your alley, I'd bet

    Evil Dead,probably a poster child for a b movie, The Giant Claw,Them, Hot rods To Hell-- sorry if you missed Gloria in that one--,Psyco Cop, and others. I love the hacker slasher humorous genre. Also Hells Highway with "Lucinda".
