The Violent Professionals (1973)

Shortly before his death in 1975, Noir favorite Richard Conte starred in a number of Euro crime thrillers including this Dirty Harry/vigilante style justice flick starring Luc Merenda. This one […]

The Cat Creature (1973)

I freely admit I have a fondness for the thrillers that television would regularly feature as the movie of the week. They were creepy when your a kid and quite […]

Hammer (1972)

Fred “The Hammer” Williamson stars here as who else…..B.J. Hammer. Using the tried and true backdrop of boxing, Fred stars as a fighter on his way to the title while […]

Innocent Bystanders (1972)

Here’s a peek into the rather grim world of espionage and how one is discarded when no longer useful. It’s all been done before but I couldn’t help myself when […]

Part 2, Walking Tall (1975)

This second film that chronicles the life of southern Sheriff Buford Pusser picks up where the first one left off. The only difference is that when the bandages are removed […]

Revisiting The Godfather (1972)

It’s been about 10 years since I sat back and watched this landmark title. My teenage son hadn’t seen it yet and has slowly been catching up on the classics. […]

Joe Kidd (1972)

Despite the fact that the credits list John Sturges as this western’s director, you’d swear the Clint Eastwood feel is written all over it. For starters it’s a Malpaso production […]

I Escaped From Devil’s Island (1973)

With the success of the Steve McQueen film Papillon it should be expected that Roger Corman and brother Gene would put out a low budget knock off to capitalize on […]

Kotch (1971)

Jack Lemmon only directed one film during his award winning career. Wouldn’t you just know that the actor he cast in the lead role was his frequent costar and longtime […]

Message From Space (1978)

Ask me today if I would like to watch Star Wars and I will look fairly disinterested. By Star Wars I mean the film that started the whole thing. I […]

Walking Tall (1973)

When it comes to the violent films of the seventies they seem to be so much more realistic then films from other decades. Perhaps the trend started with Bonnie and […]

Night Watch (1973)

Elizabeth Taylor stars here in a film that plays like a Hammer Production and had it been made 10 years earlier should have starred Bette Davis or Joan Crawford. Or […]

The House of Seven Corpses (1973)

There is something fun about thinking back to those early childhood scares we all experience. For me that brings to mind this low budget shocker that plays much better than […]

Pray For the Wildcats (1974)

Throughout the seventies the weekly television movie was in full swing and commonly starred aging film stars or in cases like this film, familiar television personalities. For this surprisingly solid […]

Sometimes a Great Notion (1971)

This saga of a stubborn family of loggers pitted against the local union and on going strike offers us the first film that Paul Newman not only starred in but […]

The World’s Greatest Lover (1977)

“I will win that screen test!” “Not because I am the best actor in the world!” “Not because I am the sexiest man in the world!” “Not because I am […]
