The stop animation dinos in ONE MILLION YEARS BC are the show for sure. The real iguana was horrid.
I made sure the TV guide was the first thing I grabbed, also. A usual Saturday when I was 9-10 (San Francisco area) would be up at 8 or so, watch cartoons for a few hours, go play, watch SCIENCE FICTION THEATER at 2:30 (usually awful), play when that was over, watch TV wrestling from 5 to 6, have dinner and play a little more, SCIENCE FICTION MOVIE at 7:30, take a shower, and at 9:30 watch CREATURE FEATURE with Bob Wilkins hosting and , if there was a decent one playing and/or I had the energy would check out THE GOOD OLD SCARY MOVIE around 1 AM
..not a bad way to spend the day.
JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS (1963). Very enjoyable film with Harryhausen at his peak (Those skeletons!
). Story and cast are stellar as well...only complaint I have is how quickly it wraps up. Would have liked a sequel a few years later showing all of Jason's adventures on the way home with the golden fleece. *****
