G.I. Blues (1960)

The Fallen Sparrow (1943)

“In a world at war, many sparrows must fall….” It’s 1940 as Sparrow opens and we’ll find John Garfield on a train that is set to arrive in New York. […]

The Undying Monster (1942)

There isn’t a year go by I don’t sit in on some sixty odd minute black and white “B” flick meant for the bottom half of a double bill that […]

Savage Island (1985)

To be honest I thought this type of exploitation filmmaking went out with low budget specialist Jerry Warren or maybe even Roger Corman. By that I mean the days when […]

The Quiet Man (1952)
