Creature (1985)

Not having seen this since it came out on VHS in what I imagine looking back was the year of it’s release, I recalled it as another Alien rip-off. Now […]

Man’s Favorite Sport? (1964)

While the legendary Howard Hawks may not be remaking his own Rio Bravo here as he kind of did with El Dorado, he freely borrowed a classic bit from his […]

The Battle of the Sexes (1960)

In my little corner of the world which is a long way from Hollywood there isn’t too many opportunities to catch a retro night at the movie theater. If there […]

The Edward G. Robinson Poster Gallery

I find it ironic that a man who loved the world of art and collecting it is now part of that world himself. Classic film posters have become highly collectable […]

The Gun Runners (1958)

THAT HEMINGWAY KIND OF EXCITEMENT! That’s what the trailer promises and behind director Don Siegel  it does a pretty good job of delivering in this B film from United Artists. […]
