The Genuine Imitation Jonesing Bogart Library!
by Art Bowshier
I am a fan of movie serials and old b&w monster/horror movies.
For movie serial info, I go to The Serial Suadron (serialsquadron.com),as I have an extensive movie serial library. It's mostly VHS now, but I'm replacing with DVDs from Oldie.com. They carry thosands of movies, CDs and books among many more things. Matter of fact, I bought a DVD repair machine that polishes out scratches from Oldies.com. Good prices there too!
For my horror movie fix is filled by the Classic Horror Film Board, just Google that up. It has been frequented by Don Glut, Bill Warren and Chuck Dixon.It is there that I came across an extrodinary artist/sculptor named Jethro Keene. He makes faux Aurora model kits. Which I had many of as a kid. He does three inch high sculpture that are dead on amazing. He has a Twilight Zone action figure array that really knocked my socks off and curled my toes. I have decided to use this as my salute to a master artist--Jethro Keene. Here are some of them that I've come across at that forum in the Horror comics and fan art section.
Lots of neat stuff.
You realize that Aurora did models for Hammer movies and these are made by hand, by Jethro Keene.
Jethro also does dinosaurs and does movie dioramas of Harryhausen films. His renditions of Aurora Universal Studios film models are 3 to4 inches tall and the models Aurora made were 6 to 8 inches tall. The details on these are insane!!!!
Search the web site for more goodies.
I threw in the last bunch just to show his Julie Newmar...
