Les Baxter - X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes

Les Baxter – "X" The Man With X-Ray Eyes / Tales Of Terror: "Morella"  (2011, CD) - Discogs

I've never heard of this film. It looks about as low budget as anything I've ever imagined. I'm impressed that it has a score, let alone one composed by Les Baxter.

Ray Milland thought it was his greatest role.

I would classify it as a very good film for connoisseurs of the AIP/Hammer genres.

No.

I was mixing it up with The Lost Weekend.

But he did have very positive things to say about X.

Sorry. Carry on.

No sweat.

I'll always associate Milland with "Dial 'M' for Murder."  My wife loves Hitchcock, and "Dial 'M'" is one of those films that you can watch over and over (and over!) again. ...And we have! ;) 

Milland may not have considered it his best, but for me it's his signature performance.

He always struck me as kind of a poor man's Carey Grant.

I need to re-watch Dial 'M' for Murder.

Stelvio Cipriani - Twitch of the Death Nerve, aka Bay of Blood

I love that font that was used on 70s Italian movie posters.  Anyone know what it is called?

Intro to the cut is hilarious.  That's Philly Joe himself doing the Dracula bit:

Les Baxter - Sadismo

More of a mondo film than a horror/supernatural film, but stylistically, it fits the bill.

Thanks for this.  I never knew much about Eddie Costa, and just looked him up on Wiki.

I know him primarily from Mundell Lowe's TV Action Jazz, which was one of the first "jazz" albums I ever heard, thanks to my Dad.  

I always loved his solo on "M Squad."

Harry Sukman - Salem's Lot

Harry Sukman - Salem's Lot | Releases | Discogs

The main title is reminiscent of Herrmann's skeleton duel music from Sinbad.
