Another week, another MYSTERY PHOTO!
Jon Kitley, pillar of the Chicago Horror Community and head honcho over at KITLEY'S KRYPT, wants to challenge your horror knowledge. Week in, week out, he posts a Mystery Photo - sometimes from an obscure horror title, sometimes just an unusual shot from a well-known classic. We figured our faithful Claw readers would enjoy the challenge!
Our last photo was from HUSH...HUSH, SWEET CHARLOTTE (1964) , Robert Aldrich's follow-up to his original trendsetting hag horror flick, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? , both starring the incomparable Bette Davis. Not surprising if our last photo "stumped" quite a few people, but in spite of the facial contortions, the unfortunate fellow in the photo is none other than a very young Bruce Dern, who not only loses his hand as seen below, but is about to lose his head as well. Southern Gothic was never more stylish. Check it out.
Let's see how you fare with this week's selection:
If you provide the correct answer, your name will be announced next week on the Kitley's Krypt website (http://www.kitleyskrypt.com), along with a new photo. Even if you don't know the answer, we welcome any sorta-kinda educated guess! So, send in your emails today and good luck!
