    I vaguely remember the show you're talking about but can't help with the title. However, I believe it was this dude in the intro. It's from a 1922 film called Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror.

    If you haven't already you need to watch the whole movie. It is a true classic.

    Will I need to sit on a toilet the whole time so as to have a sturdy reservoir to contain what will come out of my backside ....?

    I think the scene you've already seen is the creepiest, but there are some truly stunning shots throughout. One in particular is a horse-drawn carriage that has a curtain covering the wheels so it looks like the carriage is floating down the road. It's definitely the GrandDaddy of vampire films.

    cheers.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that image somehow worms its way into a dream or two of mine tonight....

    Now to figure out that bloody show...

    Further to this... your help (clue) has helped me confirm that indeed the show is "In search of / Great Mysteries of the world".

    Found it in here...

    “In Search Of…” Leonard Nimoy’s 1970s Reality Show | cinematically insane (wordpress.com)

    Further to that - it would appear that the show was only known as "Great Mysteries of the World" in Sydney..... everywhere else, inc Australia/USA etc, it remained "In Search of"...

    Now trying to find footage of the intro to the show..... but it's proving fruitless thus far.

    Thanks again..

    I have only seen snippets of the film but so much stunning creepy imagery i can see why it is referred to as a classic. I actually have it on the hard drive recorded of chanell 33 TVS so i have had it for a long while and havent watched it fully, i should pull my finger out.

    Absolutely! There are so many iconic scenes throughout and the use of shadows in the cinematography is stunning. One of many great German films from that period.

    Came back from the Hunter Valley today via Wollombi then came out onto the road at Peats Ridge virtually at the site of the old Oaks , was told years ago that the Oaks site was falling to pieces but now the place was saved and a few shops are in where it was, not really recognizable as the Oaks building now and to be honest the road from there to Calga did not really look like what i remembered from the 70's also.

    I remember one really creep shadow scene that they seem to show quite often in reference to the film which really gives me the chills.

    That's one of them. There are others that are just as spooky.

    Wow1 That takes me back. It was always interesting to see who had borrowed the book before you, especially when someone had gotten away with using an alias.

    This scene was virtually copied in the 1931 version of Dracula, the Count comes out of his coffin and stands on the deck of the ship surveying the crew before he kills them.

    Actually just watched the ship scene from Nosferatu, far more chilling than the 1931 Dracula.

    I always got a laugh when A.Hitler had borrowed the book before me. I still don't know how that one slipped past the librarian.

    To think of all those poor kids in school since then, never getting to read such classics because of such thievery...and how their lives have been so much poorer for it...
