Curse of the Grab Bag! Mystery Photos #71-75!


Welcome back to the ol' Arcana for another round of Grab Bag Goodies!

As outlined in previous installments, I purchased a few hundred promotional stills that have had their title captions trimmed off. Some I recognize, most I don't. It's up to my faithful readership to help me decipher what they're promoting. Hell, solve enough of 'em and maybe I'll send you some of the duplicates I received!

For those not familiar with promo stills, they occasionally carry a helpful hint or two. Some are branded with a cataloging code of letters and numbers which usually signify an abbreviation of the title (sometimes a retitling) and, if you're especially lucky, maybe the year of release (not to be confused with year of production). And that's pretty much all we have to go on...

The fifteenth batch is below; let's see what you've got!

 #71: 1753-27

 #72: IA(1389)-15

Some tender loving care courtesy of Gordon Hessler's Scream and Scream Again (1970)! A morning jogger keeps waking up at a hospital with one less limb at a time. A bloodsucking fiend is prowling nightclubs for fresh victims. A group of torturing neo-nazis are being bumped off one by one. Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing pop up for a quick paycheck. What the heck's going on? Vincent Price is creating a master race! Fun, trashy '70s pulp that's well worth a watch.  Available on DVD from MGM with its original score restored, paired with a longer cut of Hessler's The Oblong Box (1969).
