The Things We’ve Lost…

Over the years I’ve lost a handful of things….many I’d love to have back.

There was the obligatory comic book or two, rubber pencil topper monster and rubber disembodied hand. Those all acquired by my various elementary and junior high school teachers in a most perfunctory way. Zip, and snatched off my desk or from behind my notebook.

My original Aurora models (1960s) and glow models (1970s) that vanished in a move from North Atherton Street to Ramblewood Road when I was in seventh grade. They mysteriously never made the journey. My parents pitching them when I wasn’t looking??? Or, a black hole? I prefer to believe in the black hole theory.

Along the way I also lost my monster Soaky Toys, MPC monsters and my treasured Old Maid Monster card deck. Those three things, however, I was able to re-buy (or gifted to me) and now they rest safely at Creepy Classics/Monster Bash HQ.

Now there was one item, that is my missing Holy Grail. It is a film catalog that was given to me by my grandfather. It was a rental catalog for 16mm films…maybe by the Modern Sound Pictures company. It was a Halloween edition that, I believe, had a red cover with various monsters on it. Inside were descriptions and photos from all the classic horror and science fiction films they offered for rental. It probably came out in between 1969-1972. I proudly took it to Park Forest Junior High School to show the other kids this cool, cool catalog. It got passed around our lunch table…and disappeared. I was heartbroken…and have been for the past 47 years. So, if I may, turn this into a classified ad plea….if anyone knows where I could find one of these???

Now the important part…it really isn’t just the fact that we liked these “lost” items. For me it’s because they’re a missing piece of time. A time associated with all the great relatives that lovingly gave you these things…while they were still around. I wish I could thank them all again. I will thank my dad the next time I see him. The combination of all of this is that it’s a part of you, these things had, and have emotional strings. They are us, and that’s why we’d love to reclaim some of the missing pieces…of our youth.

Lost After Midnight

The above clip was teased as being a surviving bit from the lost Lon Chaney film a few years ago. Click the above image to see some brief footage.

If I tell you what it really is…it’ll be pretty disappointing. Well, okay…it’s a stop motion of the Sideshow action figure. But, the effects and background make it pretty cool.

We can only wish that the film as LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT (1927), or it’s UK title THE HYPNOTIST will finally show up some year…
