Woman They Almost Lynched (1953)

Here’s a title that I really had no idea even existed until happening upon a blu ray copy issued forth by Olive Films. It’s a black and white oater from […]

Man With the Gun (1955)

Considering this western casts “A” list” star, Robert Mitchum in the title role, it has the feel of a low budget entry worthy of a Rory Calhoun or an Audie Murphy. Then […]

The Mysterious Monsters (1975)

“This may be the most startling film you’ll ever see.” Coming from the authoritative tones of Peter Graves, surely this has to be taken seriously. Perhaps Graves’ work here as a narrator […]

The Ghost Goes West (1935)

Displaying a charm that one cannot easily dismiss, this proved to be a winning romantic comedy of ghostly proportions from producer Alexander Korda that features future Oscar winner Robert Donat […]

The Centerfold Girls (1974)

I wouldn’t exactly term this as the ideal “date movie.” Especially when practically every male character in the film is either an ass or a pervert. Or in the case of Aldo […]

39-steps-foreign

The 39 Steps (1959)

This remake of the 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film comes by way of producer Betty E. Box and director Ralph Thomas. The same duo who teamed for titles including The Clouded Yellow, The […]

Death Rides a Horse (1967)

Years ago when I was connecting names to genres and movies, Lee Van Cleef was one of those faces a youngster doesn’t easily forget. Death Rides a Horse quite frequently would play […]

avalanche-record

Avalanche (1978)

With Irwin Allen laying claim to most of the natural disasters that make for explosive cinema, producer Roger Corman once again takes a popular theme and grabs a piece of […]

Who’s Got the Action (1962)

Some “stars” are just too good looking to be kept apart so it should come as no surprise that the coolest member of The Rat Pack, Dean Martin should find […]

The People That Time Forgot (1977)

Director Kevin Connor was once again enlisted to bring the stone age world of Edgar Rice Burrough’s lost continent to life in this wild tale of Patrick Wayne following the trail […]

The Land That Time Forgot (1974)

Like every generation of movie lovers, there’s bound to be some films from your early years that you know would be frowned upon by today’s crowds. Movies that hold a […]

Sunday In the Country (1974)

Having located a copy of this film on DVD under the secondary title it’s known as, Vengeance Is Mine, has allowed me to see a flick I recall would play […]

wagner-silver-whip

The Silver Whip (1953)

Looks like a “B” picture. Sounds like a “B” picture. The cast list resembles a “B” picture. In reality I found this western tale from 20th Century Fox and director […]

gladiators_7_poster_02

Gladiators 7 (1962)

Swords and Sandals rule the day in this variation on the Kurosawa theme enhanced by the recent success of the 1960 Sturges’ western updating. The plot of seven professional killing machines […]
