Guns Girls and Gangsters (1959)

There are plenty of guns and gangsters in this Edward L. Cahn directed “B” and as for girls …. well the male cast get all they can handle in one […]

Men In War (1957)

Considering this was directed by Anthony Mann I couldn’t help but wonder if James Stewart was approached to play a grizzled war veteran with a platoon of men at his […]

Highway 301

If Steve Cochran learned anything playing opposite James Cagney’s Cody Jarrett in the 1949 gangster classic, White Heat, it’s how to kill indiscriminately and in a cold blooded fashion on […]

Pier 5, Havana (1959)

Lesser known “B” titles need love to so when I see the names Cameron Mitchell and Allison Hayes starring in a low budget effort from Edward L. Cahn, I’ve just […]

Bait (1954)

As if borrowing a page from Hitchcock’s television show or Karloff’s Thriller, this black and white “B” predates the intros to those shows with Sir Cedric Hardwicke delivering a tongue […]

Flat Top (1952)

A number of years before producer Walter Mirisch began to bring major “A” budget projects to movie screens including The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape and In the Heat of […]

Border River (1954)

Universal-International Studios proved to be a western fan’s best friend during the 1950’s and a film like Border River is a fine example of just what the company was putting […]

Port Afrique (1956)

With what I assume to be some second unit work in Morocco and plenty of stage work at Shepperton Studios in England, this technicolor murder mystery makes for a diverting […]

New Orleans Uncensored (1955)

Now that 1954’s On the Waterfront blew the doors off of organized crime running the docks of New Jersey, that central theme is transferred to the coastal waters of New […]

The Bandits of Corsica (1953)

Here’s a popcorn adventure for the Sunday matinee crowd that starred Richard Greene and drew me in for two simple reasons. The villains of this swashbuckler are played by Raymond […]

Spin a Dark Web (1956)

Carrying the Columbia logo for it’s North American release, this low budget Noir effort from across the pond stars a pair of imports to take on the lead roles of […]

Spaceways (1953)

As was the custom of Hammer Films prior to becoming the premiere company in the world of horror movies, the studio imported a well known name from Hollywood to star […]

Thunder Road (1958)

I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that screen icon Robert Mitchum was at the height of his box office pull when this tightly budgeted black and white feature […]

Fearless Fagan (1952)

Brando’s Pick of the Month For this MGM release detailing the plight of Fagan, a 400 pound tamed lion, Janet Leigh, scored top billing opposite Carleton Carpenter and Keenan Wynn […]

All At Sea (1957)

aka Barnacle Bill. Long before Alec Guinness would become eternally famous in the world of pop culture as Obi-Wan Kenobi he was on one hell of a roll in the […]
