The Valley Of Gwangi (1969)

Having had a long gestation period going back to King Kong creator Willis O’Brien, stop motion wizard Ray Harryhausen breathes life into this western tale of cowboys, a hidden valley […]

The Red House (1947)

Being a long time fan of Edward G. Robinson, this film has eluded me till now and that’s mainly because it had fallen into public domain and knowing that, I […]

Cry Wolf (1947)

This rather odd film comes by way of Warner Brothers that sees Errol Flynn playing against type opposite Barbara Stanwyck that given a tweak here and there could easily have […]

La Bambola di Satana (1969)

aka Satan’s Doll or The Doll of Satan if you prefer. Released by Twilight Time on blu ray, this was a new to me title that mixes giallo thrills against […]

Assassination (1987)

The Long Haul (1957)

For the better part of an hour, this noir like tale of British gangsters running the truck industry delivers a punch that is only enhanced by American leading man Victor […]

One Eyed Jacks (1961)

The iconic Marlon Brando directed only one film in his entire career and with it, gave us what I’ve always felt to be a vastly underrated effort that co-starred his […]

Bear Island (1979)

This strikes me as one of those films that I rarely seem to find anything positive written about and to be honest, I can’t figure out why. Equal parts Alistair […]

Taras Bulba (1962)

This Harold Hecht production with J. Lee Thompson directing comes across as if it had been intended to be the biggest spectacle of the year capturing the bulk of the […]

The Sons of Katie Elder (1965)

If you like westerns and John Wayne, then for my money it’s nearly impossible not to love this movie. As a matter of fact it might be the most enjoyable […]
