Gold. One of the most valuable elements on the planet. We value it as well, however here at Creature Features, it comes in a form somewhat slightly different than the preferred metal of the gilded age. For us, gold is when we show a great movie and the star of that movie sits with us in the guest chair to tell us how it was all done. And do we have a bright star and a brilliant film for you this weekend.
Joining us will be Pamelyn Ferdin. She was the most popular and prolific child star of the 1970s. She was in everything from Baretta to Sigmund and the Sea Monster. She hung out with the Brady kids. She was the first actor to kill Clint Eastwood in a film. She ran Space Academy with Dr. Smith from Lost in Space. She was a Timmy on Lassie and she even spent quality time with Oscar and Felix on The Odd Couple. And if for some reason you still can’t remember her lovely face, you’ll most certainly remember her voice – which was the verbal aspect of Lucy on The Peanuts for a number of years. We’ll talk about some of the highlights of her career and get the inside scoop on our featured presentation which will be:
Daughter of The Mind from 1969. This is a wonderful ghost story about a professor who is convinced that his deceased daughter is communicating with him from beyond the grave. This film caused a few nightmares when it originally aired and has some slightly disturbing imagery that can still cause a shudder or two in the braver eyes of today. Starring our guest as the adorable little ghost, the film also features Ray Milland, Gene Tierney and Ed Asner. Keep an eye out for Mrs. Olson from Folger’s coffee in this one too.
All the above this weekend and also Handrew tries to net Tangella, Saturday night at 9PM Pacific Time at the link above and on-demand at our Roku, AppleTV and FireTV channels. Don’t miss it!
One thought on “This weekend on Creature Features: ”
Ms. Pamelyn Ferdin and I are about the same age, so I watched (and listened) to her in the 60s and 70s. She was a delightful guest and her effervescent personality (looking at you, Livingston) made the show.
Great movie, great guest. Please call her back!
