Welcome to Coolasscinema.com! This is a site dedicated to the propagation of strange and exciting cinema (and television) from all over the world as well as America's own grand tradition of exploitation cinema classics. From the front (and back) seats of drive in's across the nation, to the sleaze pit theaters of New York's famed 42nd street, to the comforts of home watching fantastic cinema on the Late Show, remember those classic (and sometimes classless) films of old and even discover some new ones.
Here's a whole host of ads that appeared in the Thanksgiving week, November 1977 issue of TV Guide. There's a little bit of everything here from popular shows, variety specials, product ads, cartoons and movie premieres.
This was a short-lived series from Aaron Spelling. I don't remember it, but it's interesting running across so many ads for shows that never made it.
WSET-13 was probably my favorite channel back then. They had some great monster movies on virtually every day. This particular week was a Karloff-fest with THE BLACK ROOM (1935), THE MAN THEY COULD NOT HANG (1939), WHEN THE DEVIL COMMANDS (1941), THE MAN WITH NINE LIVES (1940), and THE BOOGIE MAN WILL GET YOU (1942).

I've been a huge movie buff since childhood catching old horror and monster flicks on Shock Theater and kung fu movies at the drive-in during the late 70's and early 80's. I've had a long time fascination with, and appreciate all genres of fantastic cinema, good and bad. One fans cheese is another fans juicy steak. I like both equally and seldom find a film I truly dislike as I will find something of interest in just about anything. The bulk of the films or tv series' seen here are mostly from my childhood, or films I own in what has become an Amazing Colossal DVD collection.
