Hats off to Hatten!


I'd watch Family Film Festival with Tom Hatten on KTLA channel 5 every weekend! That twirling ribbon & theme song betokens some fun entertainment on the way! I always enjoy his quips and trivia about the film presentation, and Popeye cartoons! Always looked forward to The Sea Hag's appearances and the goons! I believe this was the first time I ever saw "Munster, Go Home!"

I Preserved quite a few favorites on tape, including Clash of The Titans, Aladdin, Hercules, Pippi Longstocking, and others. He'd play movies that were not in theaters, timeless classics and hidden gems which remained unforgettable, and in some ways, formative. He very much became like an Uncle playing his magical movies for you.

Hats off and a Horn tip!

Thank you Tom Hatten for providing many a pleasant weekend afternoon with your informative inclusions and charming demeanor! If someone is so inclined, to re-air this theater show on weekends again, it would be greatly appreciated!
