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 […]

Fedora (1978)

Is it just me or is this like a lost, not quite classic Billy Wilder flick that reunites him with his leading man from Stalag 17 and Sunset Boulevard, William […]

Strange Bargain (1949)

Noir in a Leave it to Beaver setting is how this RKO release comes across with Jeffrey Lynn getting in over his head in this nifty plotted thriller from producer […]

The Reluctant Heroes (1971)

If I didn’t know any better I’d swear this made for TV affair by way of Aaron Spelling was made on the sets and locations of MASH when Alan Alda […]

Biggles (1986)

At long last I’ve caught up with the final film of Peter Cushing. While he doesn’t go out on a horror note, it is a very good role for the […]

Night of the Iguana (1964)

I probably knew more about what went on behind the scenes of this John Huston production then anything that actually happened in the film. Therefore I thought it was about time […]

The Great Bank Robbery (1969)

Flawed and uneven this western spoof may be and it’s surely attempting to cash in on the popularity of Support Your Local Sheriff, yet, having said that there is an […]

Helen of Troy (1956)

Arguably the biggest release on the Warner Brothers schedule for the calendar year and in Warner Color no less, Helen hit the screens minus one notable thing, a definite lack […]

The Gauntlet (1977)

“A nothing witness for a nothing trial.” If only things were that simple for Clint Eastwood in this non Dirty Harry cop film where Clint directs himself and brings along frequent costar Sondra […]

The Horrible Dr. Hichcock (1962)

It’s only been about thirty years since I’ve seen this effective creeper when it played City TV out of Toronto on a late night airing. It scared the hell out […]

Three Cornered Moon (1933)

Light comedy director Elliott Nugent, who had just started his career with 1932’s The Mouthpiece, helmed this early screwball comedy with Claudette Colbert taking center stage in black and white under […]

Follow That Dream (1962)

Take a dash of Max Baer’s Jethro from The Beverly Hillbillies, a healthy dose of Percy Kilbride’s Pa Kettle teamed with Howard McNear’s Floyd the Barber wrapped around a simple feel good […]

The Cassandra Crossing (1976)

This star studded flick feeds into my love of the disaster movie where we the viewers get to play spot the star while awaiting the final reel to see who is going […]

Bedevilled (1955)

MGM, Paris, Steve Forrest and Anne Baxter all collide in technicolor for this mixture of noir, religion and romance. It’s a tale that sees handsome, square shouldered and rock jawed […]

Corky (1972)

For my viewing habits, I’d say this is a rather obscure title that I happened to catch on a late night TCM showing. Not being a racing car enthusiast has […]
