They Met In Bombay (1941)

This colorful heist film from MGM features Clark Gable in fine form that somehow morphs itself into an adventurous war film that features Clark Gable in …………… fine form. In […]

Dakota (1945)

Officially I guess we’d call this a western but it’s not exactly the type we most often associate with John Wayne. If you’re at all familiar with some of his […]

Invisible Ghost (1941)

Horror icon, Bela Lugosi makes his Monogram Pictures debut in this Sam Katzman production that sees Bela playing a mild mannered Doctor who just might be a serial strangler wreaking […]

Chamber of Horrors (1940)

aka The Door With Seven Locks I’ll admit to preferring the Seven Locks title but I can see the exploitation factor with Chamber of Horrors and the images it may […]

Strange Bargain (1949)

Noir in a Leave it to Beaver setting is how this RKO release comes across with Jeffrey Lynn getting in over his head in this nifty plotted thriller from producer […]

aka Stairway to Heaven. For this month’s Mad Movie Challenge, Kristina of Speakeasy has handed me a wonderfully filmed fantasy tale from the team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger […]

Champion (1949)

One of the great things that can happen to a classic movie fan is when your offspring want to see so many of the great films of yesteryear. So a couple […]

Experiment Perilous (1944)

The Mad Movie Challenge Strikes Again. Kristina over at Speakeasy has placed this Jacques Tourneur film on top of my viewing pile nudging me to see it for the first […]
