Legends of the Superheroes

Posted: 25th July 2010 by lotshwp in 1979

What is Legends of the Superheroes?

It is one of the all-time classics of bad television. Two episodes were created in 1979 and shown on NBC. For years it has been hidden away in the vaults.

This short-lived series depicts several of the well know characters that were active back in the 60′s and 70′s. Included are:

The narrator is Gary Owens (remember Laugh-In?) and of course Ed McMahan as the host of the roast.

See the full cast here.

Is it worth seeing?  Only if you liked the 1960′s Batman TV series.

If you are a fan of the more recent Batman movies, this may be more than you can take.

The first episode is the called “The Challenge”.   In this hour-long episode, the cast reunites in the Batcave to celebrate Scarlet Cyclone’s birthday. The Legion of Doom shows up to disrupt the party. They are sent on a bomb-diffusing escapade. You can guess the outcome.

The second episode is also an hour long, being a “Roast” format for Batman.  Of course the host is Ed McMahon. Each of the characters gets a chance to play to their audience.  At times this could be painful; but if you think of the times it is pretty amazing that they were able to pull this off.

But we think that is worth watching. If only to remind you how far things have come.

Or maybe it should be kept buried in the Batcave for good.

Pretty Maids All in a Row

Pretty Maids All in a Row

Check this one out. Rock Hudson is Tiger McDrew checking out the girls in the school. Angie Dickinson is Miss Betty Smith – the teacher every boy wishes they would have had in high school. And John David Carson is Ponce de Leon Harper – the student with just one thing on his mind.

Who makes up this stuff? Oh yeah, it was from the mind of Gene Roddenberry. After Star Trek.

And the rest of the cast includes Telly Savalas, Roddy McDowall, and Keenan Wynn.

This is worth watching just to see what happens to the female students. Sometimes fiction is stranger than fact.

Synopsis:

Oceanfront High School student Ponce de Leon Harper (John David Carson) is obsessed with sex. Fortunately, he meets lots of girls. Unfortunately, they all end up dead.

Written and produced by post-Star Trek Gene Roddenberry, and directed by Roger Vadim (Barbarella), Pretty Maids All in a Row is an outrageous, head spinning, flower-powered dark comedy/sex comedy/murder mystery that could only be produced in a decade like the 70s.

Playing a randy football coach, Rock Hudson headlines a top cast that includes Angie Dickinson as a sexy substitute teacher and Telly Savalas as a savvy homicide cop -sans lollipop. Sci-fi fans should look for appearances by Roddy McDowall (Planet of the Apes) as the High School Principal, and James Doohan (“Scotty” from Star Trek) as a State Trooper. If that’s not enough, imagine the film’s opening soundtrack featuring Chilly Winds, a song by the Osmonds. With everybody doin’ it in this whodunit, Pretty Maids all in a Row needs to be seen to be believed.
