P.S.: Tomorrow night at 9:00 p.m. East Coast Aliens will be featuring the Fritz Lang film, M. Doors open at 8:30 p.m. and the price of admission us $6.00. Here’s a fact I learned about this film via IMDb:

The extras playing the members of the criminal gang were real life delinquents: before the end of the filming 24 of them were put into jail.
