Father Is a Bachelor (1950)

Just prior to having his career go into overdrive with the release of Sunset Boulevard and elevating him onto the “A” list of actors about tinsel town, William Holden starred […]

The Lawless (1950)

Dated though this Joseph Losey title may be, there is still a timeliness to it’s topic of racial tensions and an irresponsible media blowing things out of proportion that resonates […]

Return From the Sea (1954)

Let me ask you this. Are you a fan of westerns, gangster films and low budget fodder from the 1970’s? If the answer is yes then surely I don’t have […]

The Uninvited (1944)

While I normally associate the name of Oscar winning writer Charles Brackett with the career of Billy Wilder, this time out Brackett serves as an associate producer on The Uninvited. An absolute […]

The Front Page (1974)

Sure it’s been done before and yes the Cary Grant-Rosalind Russell-Howard Hawks version is a classic that no one should ever try to improve upon. Agreed no? But what if Billy […]

September Storm (1960)

The Greek Isles, gold doubloons and Joanne Dru highlight this 3-D programmer that also features a rubber shark, Mark Stevens as the lead treasure hunter and Robert Strauss posing a greater threat to Miss Dru than […]

Midnight (1939)

The writing team of Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder score a bullseye once again with this wonderful screwball comedy. Another excellent title released in 1939, Hollywood’s banner year. Taking directing […]

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 […]

Ray Milland : Wide-Eyed In Babylon

Ray published his autobiography back in 1974 and having recently come across a hardcopy edition I thought it about time I give it a go. Like many film fans I […]

The Klaus Kinski Explosion

I can never get to much of a good Klaus Kinski story. His films with Werner Herzog are the stuff of legends. The stories whether fabricated as Herzog has suggested […]

The Bamboo Prison (1954)

Perhaps this film played much better during the McCarthy communism witch hunts. Then again I’d like to think the general public wasn’t quite this naive as Harry Cohn’s studio would […]
