The Black Rose (1950)

Once again 20th Century Fox casts one of their strongest box office assets, Tyrone Power in an adventure where swords, sandals and jolly old England play a substantial part. Essentially Ty […]

Kill the Umpire (1950)

It’s the annual All Star break where the American League faces off against the National League for the home field advantage in the World Series of baseball. So I thought […]

Secret of the Incas (1954)

If ever there was an actor who could have played Indiana Jones in the fifties, it had to be Charlton Heston! Heston plays a very Indiana Jones like character here […]

Sailor of the King (1953)

The core part of this film makes for an entertaining story and it’s practically begging to be remade. I’m a bit surprised it already hasn’t. Directed by Roy Boulting from […]

Touch of Evil (1958) An Appreciation

Amazing, brilliant, ahead of it’s time, edge of your seat……etc. I sure do love it when my sons come back from ‘the movie room” and ask if I’d like to […]

Distant Drums (1951)

Gary Cooper vs. the Seminole Indians by way of Warner Brothers and Raoul Walsh. Coop is in full heroic mode here as a Captain living in the Florida Everglades who […]

The Proud Rebel (1958)

While I will concede that Shane is accepted as the greatest film Alan Ladd probably ever appeared in, it still stands as my second favorite. The Proud Rebel has always […]

Hell Below Zero (1954)

Like many actors in the fifties, Alan Ladd went overseas for a period of eighteen months to do a succession of films abroad due to tax loop holes. While there […]

The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958)

YOUR BLOOD WILL CONGEAL! I love that line. It’s in the film’s trailer for this the first sequel to Hammer’s The Curse of Frankenstein released the year previously. This film […]

The Marrying Kind (1952)

Noted filmmaker George Cukor directed Judy Holiday in a total of four films throughout her all too short career. This was their third effort and was written by Garson Kanin […]

China Doll (1958)

He man Victor Mature stars here as a tough as nails flight leader during WW2 who doesn’t suffer fools gladly. While stationed in China Mature is known to hit the […]

The African Queen (1951)

“Fancy me a heroine.” So says Rosie as played by Katharine Hepburn in one of maverick director John Huston’s most beloved films. For this celebration of Hepburn which is being […]

The Perfect Furlough (1959)

The tried and true formula for a romantic comedy is put to good use here casting real life husband and wife Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh for this Universal International romp. […]

The Crimson Pirate (1952)

Adventure, comedy, technicolor and a rousing score with Burt Lancaster front and center! Burt Lancaster in his prime is a sight to behold. This film plays to the Lancaster strengths […]

I’m All Right Jack (1959)

Though this film is somewhat of a sequel to 1955’s Private’s Progress one does not need to see that film to jump right into this one and enjoy the hilarity […]
