There’s a bit of other stuff in here, too (as there’d damn well better be, considering how frigging late this update is), but the main unifying theme this time is the inglorious coda to an illustrious career:

Berserk (1967), in which Joan Crawford looks way the hell better in that outfit than you’re going to when you’re her age…

Strait-Jacket (1964), in which William Castle realizes that an over-the-hill star is the ultimate gimmick…

A Thousand and One Nights (1945), in which new ground is broken in the realm of odious comedy (you can’t call it odious comic relief when it’s actually the entire point of the film)…

Trog (1970), in which Crawford makes her final bow while babysitting a refugee from Stanley Kubrick’s junkroom…

and…

Witchcraft Through the Ages (1922), in which Benjamin Christensen gets a four-decade jump on the rest of the world as regards witch-burning, nunsploitation, and Mondo reportage.
