Bird of Paradise (1932)

On a tropical island paradise, Joel McCrea, is to meet one of the screen’s greatest beauties, Dolores Del Rio, in a King Vidor directed pre-code effort that features scenes and […]

Diagnosis : Murder (1974)

This nifty British flick serves as a reminder that Christopher Lee did not star entirely in horror films during the 1970’s though one shouldn’t expect him to play nicely in […]

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 […]

Death Ship (1980)

“This old ship seems to have a life of it’s own” This Canadian made production has always been one of those low budget terrors that I love to revisit. I […]

The Rounders (1965)

From the names above the title to those that appear unbilled, the cast alone is enough to recommend this farcical tale from director Burt Kennedy of two aging cowhands who […]

Scorpio (1973)

Following The Mechanic in 1972, a film that pitted an aging hitman playing a game of cat and mouse with his young protege, director Michael Winner returned to a similar […]

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 […]

The Texan (1930)

Serving as a fine follow-up to his 1929 success The Virginian, Gary Cooper, once again takes center stage in an all talking motion picture. Joining him under John Cromwell’s excellent […]

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 […]

The Passage (1979)

Just prior to becoming a house director for Cannon Films, J. Lee Thompson, reunited with his Guns of Navarone leading man of 1961, Anthony Quinn, for another WW2 thriller. It’s […]

Doomwatch (1972)

For years I’d seen images of this Peter Sasdy directed production for Tigon Productions in Famous Monsters magazine or old hard cover books on the history of horror films I’d […]

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 […]

Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972)

When Vincent Price scored a bullseye along with director Robert Fuest in 1971’s The Abominable Dr. Phibes for AIP, one thing was a given. If you said a sequel, then […]

Conflict (1936)

“Let’s get ready to Rumble!” “Ladies and Gentlemen. Introducing the challenger weighing in at an estimate of 200 pounds, John Wayne! And in this corner the champion with the KO […]
