Salome, Where She Danced (1945)

This Walter Wanger production by way of director Charles Lamont plays like a bizarre 1940’s rendition of There’s Something About Mary. From the American Civil War to a European backdrop […]

Mr. District Attorney (1941)

Issued by Republic Pictures, this murder mystery turns out to be not only an enjoyable 68 minute “B” but also injects a screwball comedy twist into the proceedings that sees […]

War of the Wildcats (1943)

Manila Calling (1942)

Looking back to the release date of this Sol Wurtzel production, it’s easy to understand the racism involved with WW2 underway. Does that excuse it when looking at it over […]
