AIP Sell Sheets for the K. Gordon Murray catalog

Ok Folks, what you see here are AIP sell sheets for the catalog of Mexican Horror films imported by the one and only K. Gordon Murray. These were sent to TV stations looking for product to show. These films first started playing on ABC TV in the late 1960's early 1970's. They'd later be picked up by stations such as channel 9 and shown during Saturday morning Sci-Fi Theater broadcasts. I remember seeing Braniac (1963) shown at 9:30 am channel 9 on March 13, 1977. I was blown away by what a truly surreal experience that film was. I had never seen anything like it. Later, Commander U.S.A of the U.S.A network would show the whole catalog of Mexican Horror films from 1985 through 1989. Commander U.S.A constantly mentioned the names of Abel Salazar and German Robles, driving those names and Mexican horror films deep into the psyche of American youth.

Ok, this last one isn't K. Gordon Murray, regardless it's actually a film directed by and starring an inebriated Jon Hall, but it's got a monster and it's going to make for perfect late night viewing.

Here are two printers blocks from the K. Gordon Murray factory. One is used to advertise his release of the German film of the Golden Goose (1964) and the other is to promote the Murray produced short Santa Claus and His Helpers (1964). Both blocks are now property of the Cinefear archives.
