THE URANIUM CAFE AUDIO SAMPLES: THE SADIST


In the process of preparing a post on one of my all time favorite films, and one that was a bit ahead of its time as we will explore shortly, 1963's The Sadist with Arch Hall Jr..One of several things that stands out in the film is the gritty Jim Thompson like dialog. Some of the exchanges between Hall's character, Charlie Tibbs, and the rest of the cast are just classic. In particular are the exchanges between Tibbs and school teacher Doris page, played by Hall's real life cousin Helen Hovey in her only, yet outstanding, film role. Right now getting some screen captures made and researching some back ground information on the film. Will probably have the post finished by tomorrow, but you can't rush a project like this. Glad to have received some encouragement on this from none other than Arch Hall Jr. himself and so the pressure is on. If we are lucky "Charlie Tibbs" himself share a few memories of his involvement in this great thriller. Lets keep our fingers crossed. For now check out some audio samples I put together and if if have not ever seen the film I am sure these will get you in the mood to check it out ASAP. You can sample the film here at The Uranium Cafe Matinee actually, but you need to get this film on DVD as the soundtrack and cinematography by Vilmos Zsigmond can not be fully appreciated in streaming format. These are from Public Domain versions of the film from The Internet Archive and I think a restored and impressive  Blu-Ray version is now available from Johnny Legend's DVD company is available here. Or Johnny, to avoid confusion, has given permission for interested fans and potential customers to contact him directly at his email and he will clear up and question about products there: johnnylegendrocks@gmail.com
