Woman Hater (1948)

Long before he directed the first James Bond film Dr. No in 1962, Terence Young, turned out this British entry in the screwball comedy genre and it’s a thoroughly enjoyable […]

The Cross of Lorraine (1943)

This riveting tale of WW2 from MGM and director Tay Garnett focuses on war torn France during the German occupation and the terrors of a P.O.W camp where many of […]

Cottage to Let (1941)

And here I thought I was about to embark on some sort of British version of The More The Merrier where John Mills and Leslie Banks share a cottage during […]

Guest Wife (1945)

Screwball comedy Queen, Claudette Colbert, once again gives us her best side as she reteams with her co-star Don Ameche from the hilarious 1939 movie Midnight. Though this Sam Wood […]

Thieves Fall Out (1941)

In my desire to see more films from the earlier part of Eddie Albert’s career I settled on giving this one a look after checking the cast list and noticing […]

One Million B.C. (1940)

Not to be confused with the Raquel Welch Harryhausen/Hammer flick of 1966 known as One Million Years B.C., this caveman saga is the first starring role for Victor Mature by way of […]

Johnny Apollo (1940)

Under Henry Hathaway’s direction screen idol, Tyrone Power, turns from cute college boy to a life of crime with gangster pal Lloyd Nolan calling the shots. Can the love of […]

By the time Monogram released this crime thriller that gave Lawrence Tierney his first starring role, the real life Public Enemy Number 1, John Dillinger, had been dead 11 years. Famously […]

The Walking Hills (1949)

Long associated with tough, male dominated pictures like The Magnificent Seven, Bad Day At Black Rock and The Great Escape, director John Sturges got an early go around with a […]

The Uninvited (1944)

While I normally associate the name of Oscar winning writer Charles Brackett with the career of Billy Wilder, this time out Brackett serves as an associate producer on The Uninvited. An absolute […]

The Fighting O’Flynn (1949)

This energetic Douglas Fairbanks Jr. swashbuckler is one which will easily make my list of most enjoyable new to me discoveries for the calendar year 2018. It’s an old fashioned […]

Courage of Lassie (1946)

Brando’s Pick of the Month I wasn’t sure if Brando picked this one for the appearance of the famed Collie or the participation of a young Elizabeth Taylor though I […]

South of St. Louis (1949)

By 1949 leading man Joel McCrea had pretty much settled into the western on a permanent basis. This time out he’s surrounded by a top notch cast in technicolor for […]

Take Me Out to The Ball Game (1949)

Vaudeville mixes with romance and baseball in this lighthearted MGM technicolor feature from director Busby Berkeley that sees Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly take to the ball diamond while Esther […]
