Early Jess Franco films

Jess Franco is known for making erotic horror films but his earliest films are more conventional. I watched four and liked them all. They’re all in black and white and on Blu-ray discs.

The Awful Dr., Orlof (1961) is a horror film about a doctor who wants to if his daughter’s damaged face.

Franco Noir has two films – Rififi in the City (1963) and Death Whistles the Blues (1964). They’re both film noirs.

The Diabolical Dr. Z (1965) is another mad doctor film

I ordered bialys online

I remember Bialys from my childhood. I hadn’t had them in about 40-50 years. They’re about the size of a bagel but taste more like pizza crust. I ordered a dozen online from Kossar’s in New York through Goldbelly and they were delivered the next day. I got three each of four different kinds – sesame, onion, tomato, and garlic. When I was young, we only had onion ones.

The bialys were excellent.
