  1. Once again, I’ve seen NONE of your movies marked with an asterisk…but one of them most definitely intrigues me, so that will have to be my recommendation: The Abominable Snowman. I’ve never even heard of this one, and the fact that it’s from 1957 tells me that it’s either completely cool, or complete schlock!
