The Sheriff of Fractured Jaw (1958)

English thespian Kenneth More scores the title role in this Raoul Walsh effort that also sees the proper leading man landing the bountiful Jayne Mansfield as his paramour in this […]

Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (1957)

It’s hard to come up with a better vehicle to showcase the on screen chemistry of cinema icons Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas than the tale of Wyatt Earp and […]

Lord Love a Duck (1966)

I’m under the impression that this George Axelrod directed feature is something of a black comedy/cult favorite. While that may be the case I can’t state that it absolutely struck […]

C.C. & Company (1970)

Jumping or perhaps riding in to the cinema of the motorcycle gang is footballer Joe Namath with the help of Roger Smith who wrote and produced this typical story as […]

One Foot In Hell (1960)

Far from what one might expect, this Fox western in Cinemascope casts screen favorite Alan Ladd in what might be his most cold blooded characterization over the course of his […]

A*P*E (1976)

If Dino De Laurentiis can present a full scale remake of 1933’s classic, King Kong, than surely writer/producer/director, Paul Leder, can launch this wanna be Kong via the Korean film […]

Every Which Way But Loose (1978)

And so begins what I like to call Clint Eastwood’s Country Music period that cast him in more of a good old boy light with plenty of Grand Ole Opry […]

Hell Bent For Leather (1960)

Veteran western director George Sherman who worked with most every cowboy star from the Duke to Rory Calhoun, from Don “Red” Barry programmers to Fess Parker television adventures  saddled up […]

I Bury The Living (1958)

One might easily assume after watching this Albert Band chiller that it must have been meant for Vincent Price. I’m not saying Price was ever approached to play the role […]

Eat My Dust (1976)

While Ron Howard did not direct this Roger Corman production, it’s the film that got him the opportunity to move from the front of the camera to the rear. Howard […]

Critic’s Choice (1963)

In what proved to be the final of four films teaming comedy legends Bob Hope and Lucille Ball the laughs are far from broad like we might anticipate as the […]

Night Game (1989)

Once again Roy Scheider is the reluctant hunter of a killer only this time his prey is on land as opposed to the sea and no he doesn’t revive his […]

Bloodhounds of Broadway (1952)

For your musical entertainment why not take a pair of Mitzi’s, Gaynor and Green along with a couple of lazy bloodhounds. Now mix them with a numbers racketeer looking for […]

Lifeforce (1985)

With the recent death of director Tobe Hooper, it was time to dust off a blu ray I picked up but had yet to open from Scream Factory. I was […]

Smart Money (1931)

In the wake of Little Caesar comes Nick the Barber. While the quick temper and the gun might not be as prevalent as they were in Edward G. Robinson’s star making […]

Cry of the Innocent (1980)

Based on a story by writer Frederick Forsyth, this tele film lands Rod Taylor a good role and he gives a performance to match as a man who loses his […]
