Name That Trauma:: Chris D. on a Firing Squad Execution

Greetings Kindertrauma:

Was wondering if you could help, or if anyone out there might be able to shed some light on a snippet of a film that I saw on Channel 13 (Tri-State Area, some sort of TV special I think – not positive) ? Here’s my only recollection particulars:

There was this TV special on channel 13, with a guy who looked like Peter Frampton/Roger Daltrey – type who got executed at the end of the movie, on like this white and black checkered firing squad patio. It was some British type show. Any info or thoughts would be awesome….????

Name That Trauma:: Brian N. on an Upsetting Table Setting

Howdy Kindertrauma!

I’ve solved all of my childhood mystery movie memories — save one — and it’s perplexed me for years! Here is what I can recall:

The scene takes place in a bar/restaurant. Some people are sitting around a table, and there may be some sort of aquariums (?) in the background. A man or men walk up to their table and it’s a little tense. What really scared me, though, is what was on the table. There was some sort of centerpiece that frightened my young eyes. I’m not sure it was meant to be scary, but it was to me and has remained the centerpiece of this movie mystery memory for over 45 years. I’m not sure if it was a movie or TV show, but I know I saw it on TV, not in a theater.

I would’ve see this sometime between 1969 and 1971, when I was 4-6 years old. Thank you for any help you can give me! It’s been a looong, frustrating trip trying to solve this one.


P.S. There is an early 70’s anthology that has vampires in a restaurant, but that’s not it.
