A Recent Photo of Harry Crosby

From: Zimbio
Here is a semi-recent photo of Harry Crosby from the first, original, and best Friday the 13th movies from 1980. He was speaking at an event to honor his father, Harry Bing Crosby called "Bing Crosby Rediscovered.

  1. Just curious: Did you meant to type "...from the first, original and one of the Friday the 13th movies" or did you flat-out personally mean like: "...from the first, original and best Friday the 13th movie of the '80s"? Just was playfully curious :)

    Anyhow I do indeed believe that this was 2013 or 2012 so indeed, it wasn't that overtly long ago.

    He was a fine actor in his few projects in which he worked on. The first four are indeed my overtly favorite with the more exploitation-styled slasher edge to them without much more of the PG 13-styled "monster movie angle". Nothing against them but starting after Friday Part V, which is just a guilt pleasure for me now that I am older as Joe Lynch said on the blu ray commentary to Friday 4, the later ones honestly don't hold up all that well for me. Though I can still pretty much chuckle & enjoy the later decade Paramount Pictures years though Parts VII & VI I was honestly never into. Part VII is honestly a shitty Friday 4 remake in a sense if you break it down without as nice casting save for the late/great best "super bitch" of the franchise, Jennifer Susan Sullivan. Even with the gore reinserted back in would still be a shit-house flick.

    I know ya don't care for modern day video gaming but on their official YouTube page, the makers of the upcoming F13th game just posted the "Higgins Haven" level teaser trailer with a kill at the end. Must say, it looks spooky, fun, atmospheric & uniquely bad ass. I am pre-ordering for the Xbox One before release date:

    Like I said a pretty impressive in-engine teaser video. Not bad at all :)
