The Sentinel (1977)

Show me a 1970’s theatrical release with no less than sixteen “stars” I’m sure to recognize and I’d think I was sitting down to watch another disaster epic. Maybe the […]

My Forbidden Past (1951)

Picture this. New Orleans, Ava Gardner and Robert Mitchum. Sounds like a sure fire Noir thriller with Mitch and Ava flirting in the jazz clubs on Bourbon Street dodging bullets and […]

Night of the Iguana (1964)

“It was five long years since I’d been here but nothing was changed. From every corner memories came back to me. Things I’d hoped I’d forgotten.” So says Fred MacMurray’s […]

How about Robert Taylor?

I find it amazing how so many people in my circle of friends really have no idea who Robert Taylor is. It’s a shame that he hasn’t somehow stayed on […]
