British Footpaths: Saint Swithun’s Way Winchester

This path follows the Rivers Itchen and Wey from Winchester Cathedral to Farnham Castle, and is the missing link to the 125 mile Pilgrims’ Way to Canterbury. We learn that Winchester was England’s capital until the 14th century, and we visit the most famous battle of their Civil War. This is a pleasant walk through the heart of England’s countryside with thatched cottages, well tended flower gardens and quiet hedgerow lined lanes. Learn independent walking, find friendly B&Bs, and save enough to return to the beautiful countryside of England. 7082 3/3/2018 - 3/10/2018 9:30AM - 12:30PM 2 ses Sa Austin On Campus: CC Bldg Room 3343 $69


Our first entry is Tormented (1960), directed by the legendary Bert I. Gordon (AKA “Mr. B.I.G.” and still directing in his 90s!) and starring Richard Carlson (It Came From Outer Space) alongside Bert’s daughter, Susan Gordon. Unlike Gordon’s “Giant Monster” contributions like War of the Colossal Beast, Tormented is a warped ghost story masquerading as a morality tale and full of sleazy fun. Next is The She Beast (1966), starring Ian Ogilvy (Roger Moore’s replacement on The Saint TV series) and Barbara Steele (Black Sunday). The statuesque Steele gained fame as a “Giallo” queen (Italian crime stories sold as horror flicks). Sadly, she failed to reign in the States. Directed by Michael Reeves (The Conqueror Worm), you won’t find a more European-flavored film than this tale of a vengeful witch reborn after 200 years. Next we have The Oval Portrait (1972) (AKA Edgar Allen Poe’s One Minute Before Death [sic]), starring Wanda Hendrix (Saddle Tramp) and Giselle McKenzie (The Match Game). Hendrix was the first wife of decorated-war-heroturned-B-movie-actor, Audie Murphy. Based on a two-page Edgar Allan Poe story (note the correct spelling), the film’s tone is similar to Roger Corman’s earlier Poe films but nowhere near the quality. Another delivery from Mexico to Hollywood is Creature of the Walking Dead (1965) a decent Mexican film patched together with incoherent scenes shot at a low-rent Hollywood backlot with actors who weren’t even in the original film. One more horror/schlock masterpiece from Jerry Warren (Attack of the Mayan Mummy). We finish with bizarre the World Without End (1956), starring Rod Taylor (The Birds) and Nancy Gates (The Search for Bridey Murphy) in a sci-fi/horror mash-up featuring astronauts vs. angry cavemen-like mutants. A genre unto itself! 7130 1/25/2018 - 2/22/2018 7:00 - 9:00PM 5 ses Th Hopkins On Campus: LB Bldg Room 1131 $79
