Movie Ad of the Week: THE CURSE OF A FAITHFUL WIFE w/ A PLACE FOR THE DEAD (1972)



Two extremely obscure movies that were made in the 1960s by writer-producer-director Gary Travis opened at the Fox Drive-In in Aiken, South Carolina on Sunday, June 25th, 1972. THE CURSE OF A FAITHFUL WIFE, starring Alan Hale, Jr. and Judith Arthy, is a black comedy that Travis filmed in Yugoslavia in early 1968. The second feature, A PLACE FOR THE DEAD, must have been shot even earlier, considering co-star Linné Ahlstrand (who was Playboy's Miss July 1958 and appeared in THE BEAST FROM THE HAUNTED CAVE and Herschell Gordon Lewis' LIVING VENUS) succumbed to cancer in January 1967. Neither of these are in the IMDb, but THE CURSE OF A FAITHFUL WIFE will be showing at the Skyline Drive-In in Shelbyville, Indiana on Saturday, July 8th. Big thanks to Mike MacCollum for bringing this show to our attention. For more info, check out the ad below or the Drive-Insanity webpage (Another rarity coming to the Skyline is William Rotsler's SHANNON'S WOMEN on August 5th).
