  1. I always get “Billy the Kid vs. Dracula” confused with “Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter” for obvious reasons. I haven’t seen (or at least I don’t remember seeing) “Billy the Kid vs. Dracula,” but I did have the pleasure (sic) of watching “Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter“ on Elvira’s Movie Macabre revamped (see what I did there?) syndicated series that aired in 2010-11. I remember it being typical of the cheaply-made films of the era, but Elvira sure had a good time with it. I’m really looking forward to seeing what Svengoolie will do with “Billy the Kid vs. Dracula” and the many opportunities he’ll have to lovingly satirize it, as he has done so many Saturday nights with so many other films in the past.

    • Greetings, Gregory! Forgive me for the delayed response! For some unknown reason, the notification didn’t appear in my inbox. Glad you enjoyed my article on Sven & his big broadcast of “Billy the Kid vs. Dracula” (1966)!

      I do recall Elvira’s big broadcast of William Beaudine’s other Embassy horror-western feature, “Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter” (1966) on her 2010-11 This TV rendition of “Movie Macabre!” That was fun!

      Before Sven’s showcase, another time that I recall watching the two Embassy-Beaudine horror/western features (“Billy the Kid vs. Dracula” and “Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter,” on tape delay) was when Me-TV’s competitor, Antenna TV aired a block of classic-cult Columbia/Embassy/Tri-Star features during the morning and late night hours somewhere around 2011-13; as a double-feature presentation (of the two aforementioned Beaudine-Embassy horror/western features)! I guess they were trying to re-create the Embassy “Shockorama” double-feature of the two Beaudine horror/western films!

      I absolutely enjoyed Sven’s recent take on William Beaudine’s cult Embassy horror-western feature! See you all in the airlanes this Sat. for Sven’s big Me-TV broadcast of “The Car” (1977) with James Brolin! Peace & “Hi-Keeba” to you and all fellow super Svengoolie SvenPals from coast-to-coast, Gregory! -Peace and all the best, Chris Hamby
