The Domino Principle (1977)

Generally regarded as a weak film in the careers of all those involved, let’s look at the fact that this Stanley Kramer film allows some heavyweight talent to share the […]

Erik the Conqueror (1961)

This tale of Vikings at odds with Britain comes from the man who had unleashed the terrors of Black Sunday just one year prior to this outdoor adventure, Mario Bava. Opening […]

Darby’s Rangers (1958)

Subbing in for Charlton Heston who was originally slated to play Col. William Darby in this Wild Bill Wellman military bio, is first time leading man James Garner assuming the title role. “Maverick […]

The End (1978)

Back in the good old days when Burt Reynolds was one of the leading contenders for the industry’s box office champ, he starred in and directed this black comedy that […]

The California Kid (1974)

An actor such as Martin Sheen is a great example of someone who has been on television screens for as long as I can recall and of course he still […]

Champion (1949)

One of the great things that can happen to a classic movie fan is when your offspring want to see so many of the great films of yesteryear. So a couple […]

Miami Blues (1990)

Black humor rules the day when Vincent Price stars in one of his most memorable roles to genre fans. That of Dr. Anton Phibes. Colorful, not nearly as graphic as […]

Ring of Fire (1961)

“I fell into a burning ring of fire.” An appropriate line from the Johnny Cash song to go along with this thriller involving a trio of young criminals, law officer […]

Remembering Robert Osborne

I’ve just received the news that TCM host Robert Osborne has passed away. I guess I’m not surprised as his time on the network has been in steady decline while […]

The Prize Fighter (1979)

A screenwriter could go anywhere with a title like that. A Rocky knock-off. A straight forward drama of a young fighter’s rise thru the ranks or more than likely an ABC […]

Vice Squad (1953)

A day in the life police procedural from United Artists has one driving force that makes the whole endeavor worthwhile. Mr. Edward G. Robinson. This film may have come at […]

Mad Dog Coll (1961)

Perhaps a foot note in the history of gangster films, this prohibition era tale offers plenty of gangland flavor and marks the film debuts of two iconic actors and another […]

The Last Voyage (1960)

  Far from flashy in comparison to the mighty Poseidon, this proved to be a first rate disaster flick  for it’s era with the ever stoic Robert Stack doing his […]
