The Palm Beach Story (1942)

Aside from being introduced to movies I have yet to see, Kristina’s monthly assignments continue to nudge me into watching some of the movies I’ve had on my shelf far […]

Trail Street (1947)

“Horses is a healthy smell, Hannah.” No that wasn’t a Walter Brennan quote. Pardon me? Did you say Gabby Hayes? Now we’re talking. Trail Street from director Ray Enright by […]

Tonight We Raid Calais (1943)

Serving as a propaganda film from 20th Century Fox during the war years, this John Brahm directed thriller is just that. A thriller! John Sutton is elected by his superiors […]

The Swordsman (1948)

I happened to pick up this title about a year ago and on my shelf it sat. Just another film from yesteryear that I thought might fit into my collection […]

I Married a Witch (1942)

Long before Elizabeth Montgomery made witches attractive, Veronica Lake made them downright sexy in this hilarious comedy from director Rene Clair that stars a befuddled Frederic March who gets tangled […]

Whirlpool (1949)

This murder mystery from director Otto Preminger had me expecting Peter Falk to pop up at anytime to solve this intriguing case that features Preminger’s leading lady of Laura, actress […]

Come Live With Me (1941)

Come Live With Me proved to be one of three films in release during 1941 that featured James Stewart. With the advent of WW2, Stewart would be off the screen […]

Phantom Lady (1944)

Time for a new movie assignment from Kristina at Speakeasy. A movie I have yet to see thus representing the mad movie challenge. This time out she’s given me a […]

Pitfall (1948)

1948’s Pitfall  offers us a somewhat cynical and moody insurance investigator played by Noir regular Dick Powell. Who better than Lizabeth Scott to join him in this Andre de Toth […]

The Beast With Five Fingers (1946)

While this may be a Warner Brothers production, it has a distinct Universal Monsters feel to it thanks to the Gothic feel and impending threat of an otherworldly severed hand […]

Hell Is Sold Out (1951)

Swedish import Mai Zetterling finds herself cast in the lead role of this Michael Anderson feature set during the fall of 1945. She’s arrived in England claiming to the be […]

Rogues’ Regiment (1948)

Dick Powell’s U.S. agent goes undercover in the French Foreign Legion tangling with Vincent Price and Stephen McNally to the beat of a Noir themed hunt for a Nazi war […]

Here Come the Waves (1944)

While this may be a rather formulaic picture in the career of Bing Crosby, it does feature some funny hi-jinks with Betty Hutton in a dual role and allows us […]

Manhandled (1949)

Manhandled starring Dorothy Lamour………. hmmmmm. Sure sounds like 1949’s exploitation title of the year. Next question to be asked is in what manner of speaking is she being manhandled? Is […]

Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves (1944)

Ali Baba takes us into the beautiful world of Technicolor joined with the on screen adventures and romantic escapades of Jon Hall and Maria Montez. All brought to us in a splendid […]
