Well, our flight was just fine up until that guy started his lame singing. That's not JAZZ!

Zeppelin vs. Pterodactyls (1936), with cameos by Bela Lugosi, John Wayne & Terrence Stamp. This is a Hammer Film.

That was pretty great. I can't wait for chapter three: The Fur Pirates!

Ah, I just skimmed through to the pterodactyl scene, then realized it was a mashup after reading the rest of the links in the post. I wondered why that passenger broke into jazz singing. Still, bizarre and great!

Awesome! Now, why can't they make movies that good these days?

Also, sounds like a few Wilhelm Screams thrown in there, so either I am mistaken, or someone dubbed them in after 1951.

Thanks miss lynnster!

That's some good mashing up going on there. Very impressed.

I remember when Zeppelin and Pterodactyls were all the rage. I had several friendships end over being on the wrong side of the issue. It was thankfully short-lived, mostly because of spelling issues.

Damn, I thought this was going to be something along the lines of KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park.

They picked a hell of a day to take a zeppelin flight.

I think the world could use more zeppelins. And Pterodactyls!

You might not want more pterodactyls.

Does anyone have a link to a wallpaper size of that poster? It is too cool for school.

I wish MST3K were still around to have at this...

Zeppelin vs. Pterodactyls

I feel like I dodged a bullet here. I was sure this was going to be footage from my police chase.

I really expected to see Jimmy Page wielding his violin bow. Alas.
