Ohhh Lydia

This oughtta be on a 45 and put on repeat. xD

Turko Trasho: KIZIL MASKE (Tolga Ziyal, 1968)

He wears a mask when he's beating up bad guys, he wears a raincoat when he's himself, he lives in the jungle, he has a motorbike, he has snappy hand guns, he even has a killer-dog... he is... THE PHANTOM... no, wait... he is... KIZIL MASKE!!!

The film stars Ismet Erten as the hero and Erol Tas - most likely as the bad guy cos, well, Erol Tas was ALWAYS the bad guy in Turkish cinema! xD.

Incidentally, the same year Cetin Inanc also directed a film by the same title!! Talk about confusing film releases!! I reviewed it here.

"Vintage Hardboiled Reads" is back!

Awesome! I mean, like, awesome!!! The Vintage Hardboiled Reads blog is back!! I'm sure you remember I spoke about it a few months back, well, last year that is. And how the blog author one day said "I'll be gone for a couple of weeks" and then never returned. Well, now, a full year later he's returned and has started to write reviews on them ol'e pulp novels once again. And not a single word of explanation, nor a reply to any of the many who posted a "welcome back" in the comments' section. Haha.

Actually, he's been back since January but altho I kept checking regularly last year I kinda gave up on him a while back. Anyhoo, good to see he's back. Arrogant or not. LOL.

For the blog go here.
