Movies Made in Connecticut

OK.  We're not Hollywood.  I get that.

From the "Made in Connecticut" exhibition in the Old State House.

I would be happy to see Connecticut again. I am glad that I missed both of these movies.

I'm surprised there haven't been more movies made in Connecticut. It is very picturesque.

Ugh! Love the posters. Hate the movies!

Birdman said...

Even Annette and Frankie would go to this Beach Party.

Luis Gomez said...

Great posters!

joo said...

I like these posters:)

Kate said...

Don't know what to say about this post...neither movie interests me at all. I recall all the publicity about the Stepford Wives, and I wasn't moved to see it. The posters are certainly eye-catching, tho.

Kinda scary, Jack. :))

Regina K said...

Those filmmakers are everywhere. I saw Stepford Wives.

Rambling Round said...

Don't believe I've seen either one of these!

Randy said...

These are great posters.

SRQ said...

Terrific posters. I wonder if anyone recalls seeing those films when they were showing.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, yes! Love the posters, hate the movies, but then I'm not a movie fan anyway! I, too, have always wanted to visit Connecticut. Did visit MA one fall and the colors were so awesome! Have a great day, Jack!

Sometimes it's good to not be Hollywood!

Great vintage posters! At first I thought it was Natalie Wood on the right, although I've never heard of this movie, but checked it and it isn't her.

I don't know the movies but the posters are fabulous!

Love love love this!!! And you don't have to be in Hollywood with a bowler hat ;-) to do good stuff, now, do you? :-)

RedPat said...

I missed the Horror of Party Beach!

VP said...

I would really like to see the atomic beasts at work!

CTBruce said...

I love those classic "B" movies.

Halcyon said...

Didn't know that Stepford is in Connecticut. Guess that movie is not popular with the residents. :)

Madge Bloom said...

Love that horror poster... those old 'b' movies in the 50s scared me as a kid... lol!

Steffe said...

That horror movie sounds like fun. I just had a look at a Swedish movie from 1971. It's called Maid in Sweden. Lots of nudity in it. And some very poor acting! The fun thing is that I know the actress who plays the leading roll in the film.

2 reasons to be proud of being from Connecticut

The Horror of Party Beach poster has me itching to see if NetFlix carries it. A monster movie musical cannot be beat. Even when it's made in Connecticut. (wink).
