The Spikes Gang (1974)

For this western from producer Walter Mirisch we get three up and coming young actors, Gary Grimes, Ron Howard and Charlie Martin Smith. The film casts them as three farm […]

To The Devil …. A Daughter (1976)

For the final horror film of the famed Hammer Films Studios comes this tale from the pen of Dennis Wheatley. Hammer had earlier turned Wheatley’s novel The Devil Rides Out […]

Foxfire (1955)

“You’re a beautiful dancer. Do you do other things as good as you dance?” You can read what you like into that line but when it’s Dan Duryea saying it to […]

Showdown (1973)

This was the final western for both Rock Hudson and Dean Martin. It also turned out to be the final film from long time director George Seaton. Although both of […]

The Company of Wolves (1984)

I remember seeing this film years ago on VHS and being a little disappointed. Upon seeing it again this week I realize perhaps it was an age thing as I […]

It Started With Eve (1941)

Leading man Robert Cummings is in a terrible situation as this film opens. His millionaire father is nearing death and before he expires he wishes to see his future daughter […]

Larceny, Inc. (1942)

The Outside Man (1972)

This is an odd European gangland flick that was filmed in L.A. and stars 3 well know faces and a few American character actors to round out the cast. We […]

From Blind Dead director Amando de Ossorio comes this voodoo vampire tale of a group of explorers in present day Bumbasa looking into the preservation of animals. Out in the […]

The Gorilla (1939)

For today’s audiences it is practically impossible to watch this film and not compare the Ritz Brothers to the enormously popular The Three Stooges. The Ritz Brothers (Jimmy, Harry and […]

Big Trouble (1986)

Although I had heard of this film I never realized it heavily satirized the classic Noir thriller Double Indemnity. What we get here is insurance agent Alan Arkin taken in […]

Cash McCall (1960)

For the first 18 minutes of this WB romantic comedy we have a title character that everyone seems to think is a shrewd cutthroat businessman. Upon meeting our leading man […]

Lady on a Train (1945)

Here’s a genre crossing title from the Deanna Durbin library. We get a musical screwball comedy mixed in with a murder mystery to come up with a pleasurable 94 minutes […]
