No single movie. But suckling on Universal horror movies ("Dracula," "Frankenstein," and "The Wolfman") during the post "Shock Theatre" sixties permanently defined me into a Classic Film Buff.
"The Wolfman" featuring the powerhouse cast of Claude Rains, Warren William, Ralph Bellamy, Patrick Knowles, Bela Lugosi, Maria Ouspenskaya, and -- in his star-making, career-defining role -- Lon Chaney, Jr. (my favorite actor) as the doomed, eternally damned "Lawrence Talbot."
Inveterate cinéaste with a special preference for the horror film and Film Noir genres. Friends come go and go. Faithless lovers drift away and vanish. But MOVIES are eternal!
Although I was in attendance for the meetup, somehow I missed the group. I expected a gathering in the theatre lobby before the performance, but there was no such "meetup." Oh well, maybe next time . . .
