The Fantastic Films of Vincent Price #12 - Leave Her to Heaven

In this episode Doc Gangrene looks at the 1945 film-noir LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN. In it Price plays the small but important role of Russel Quinton, District Attorney and prosecutor for the State in a trial at the end of he film, which stars Gene Tierney as an obsessed woman who will stop at nothing to have the man of her dreams (Cornel Wilde) to herself - including murder. The film features a few surprises along the way but is, at its heart, a romance. Once of the best films of the 40s in which Price appears, this one is a must-see.

Mad Science meets Minor League Baseball - Doc Gangrene tosses first pitch



Tonight Nashville's minor league team, The Nashville Sounds, play their final game at Greer stadium, home to the team since 1978.

In 2008 it was my honor to make an appearance at the game alongside my nurse assistant, Nurse Moan-eek. We signed autographs, Moan-eek led the crowd in the 7th inning streth rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame", and I got to throw out the first pitch at the game.

 In honor of the final game at greer (barring a playoff appearance) I thought it appropriate to post the pitch here on the blog. Next year the Sounds move into a brand sparkly new stadium... truly the end of an era in nashville.

Play Ball!
