Fright Fest

October 31, 1959, Appleton Post-Crescent
As if trick or treating in 1959 wasn't enough, the valley offered several Halloween themed events that year, parties, dances and oh yes, the special movie programs.  Who can forget those schlocky horror films we willingly spent our hard earned nickels and dimes on?

  1. At the Varsity, John Wayne and William Holden in "The Horse Soldiers". Movies didn't get any better than a John Wayne western. My favorite, from 1949, "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon". "Yellow" the color of the Army Armor Corps. Captain Nathan Cutting Brittles, on the eve of retirement, takes out a last patrol to stop an impending massive Indian attack. Encumbered by women who must be evacuated. As I stated, it doesn't get better than that!
