    What MST episode was this movie played in? May 17, 2018 at 19:29

    @DCOPTimDowd, it's episode 10 of Season 9 (0910). Valorum has the ep linked in his answer. Definitely worth a look if you're at all a MISTIE. IMHO, it's one of the top 5 MST3K eps of all time.

Will he be spoken of in the same hushed tones as Olivier, Hopkins and Day-Lewis? Only time will tell.

That being said, I've liked him in everything I've ever seen him in :-)
