seeing the invisible

Invisible bikini, that is.

And the blue-screened ghost within.

The brand new 21st century version of UHF funkiness expands a bit more with This TV, a network chock full of movies.

Frankly, I haven't quite warmed up to This as much as RTV.

But broadcast was one great piece of '60s teenploitation, The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini. It seems to be one of Nancy Sinatra's first movies (or not), and maybe one of the last for Basil Rathbone, Boris Karloff and the somewhat superannuated teen star Tommy Kirk. As promised by the title, a shapely ghost cavorts in her invisible bikini. Eric Von Zipper bikes in with his leather clad crew. And a few not-so-groovy ghoulies aside, poolside dudes play Vox instruments so the kids can dance.

As Brief Window just posted some transformation clips from The Incredible Hulk TV show, I might mention that RTV was broadcasting an episode featuring sci-fi mainstay Whit Bissell.

And a young Kim Cattrall as a Native American archeologist.

Long live the new UHF.
