Riot in Cell Block 11 (1954)

Seventeen years prior to unleashing the violence of Dirty Harry upon 1970’s filmgoers, director Don Siegel gave the 1950’s crowd this explosive prison drama that cast a long list of […]

Man on a String (1960)

Despite the narration factor that I have often been a critic of, there is one major factor that makes Man on a String from director Andre De Toth worth checking […]

The Return of “The Novel Idea”

Ok. You might have figured it out by now but when I’m out hunting for VHS tapes, DVD’s and other odd bits of movie paraphernalia, I like to snap pics […]

Murph the Surf (1975)

aka Live a Little, Steal a Lot This is one of those seventies flicks that feel as though they were a made for TV project that morphed into a theatrical […]

Background to Danger (1943)

Warner Brothers Studios attempts to recapture that Casablanca feeling by once again giving theater goers international intrigue, the pairing of Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre opposite  Humphr……. scratch that, opposite George […]

Two Mules For Sister Sara (1970)

Don Siegel directs and Shirley MacLaine muscles top billing over her costar (apparently not on the posters) and burgeoning cinema icon, Clint Eastwood. American western? Perhaps, but it sure has […]

Flaming Star (1960)

What happens when you surround Elvis Presley with a first rate cast, a top screenwriter and a highly talented director? For my money we get his best film even though […]

Count The Hours (1953)

Don Siegel opens this Noirish thriller with a great point of view break and entry shot leading to the murders of an elderly couple. The second of which is brutally […]

The Shootist (1976)

It is my belief that there has never been a better swan song in the movies than John Wayne’s role as J.B. Books in this Don Siegel directed film that surrounded […]

Baby Face Nelson (1957)

I’ve been wanting to see this film since I was in high school going through film books at the local library. There was a publicity shot of Mickey Rooney and […]

Company of Killers (1971)

It would seem that this was a made for tv film that received a theatrical release after all. Somewhat like Don Siegel’s remake of The Killers from 1964 which starred […]

Charro! (1969)

This odd entry in the career of Elvis Presley feels like a cross between various western styles. The opening credits look much like a spaghetti entry while the bulk of […]

The Black Windmill (1974)

By the time director Don Siegel filmed this British production his place was secure in cinema history. He was responsible for giving us gritty gangster flicks like The Line-up, a […]
