Day 2: The Return of The 2nd Annual "Favorite Stars in B Movies" Blogathon

Banner - Films From Beyond's 2nd Annual "Favorite Stars in B Movies" Blogathon co-starring Dana Andrews in The Frozen Dead (1966)

Welcome back to Day 2 of the "Favorite Stars in B Movies" Blogathon! It seems like we've hardly started, and yet on Day 1 we were treated to stealthy ninjas, brawling lumberjacks, ladies at the court of Louis XV, two mad doctors (one male and one female), a poor man's James Bond, and twenty-something "teenagers" who can't get the adults to believe in the existence of a gooey, ravenous creature from outer space. Now that's entertainment!

This go-round promises to be equally rewarding, so let's get on with the show!
