Great Scenes from Otherwise Appalling Films.
Well, nice as the idea was, it was shortlived, thanks to this notice I got from YouTube when I just posted a new installment:

Your video "Great Scenes from Otherwise Appalling Films (#2)" has been identified by YouTube's Content Identification program as containing copyrighted content which NBC Universal claims is theirs.

Your video "Great Scenes from Otherwise Appalling Films (#2)" is no longer visible in some locations, because NBC Universal has chosen to block it.

You'd think by now, in the iPod age, the folks at NBC/U would see my "scenes" as a nice way to get a free promotion, no matter how modest, for movies well past their sell-by date.

Disappointing, but not unexpected. Maybe if I confine myself to films by Mario Bava, this will work. But in the meantime, I guess this series will be no more than an occasional text post...
