The Accursed! (1957)

England’s Donald Wolfit takes charge here in this military murder mystery in a role I would have thought Jack Hawkins or John Mills would have been cast knocking Wolfit into […]

Sink the Bismarck! (1960)

If truth be told, my interest in this film, or rather the Bismarck itself stems from the music and songs of the late Johnny Horton. A country music singer who […]

Zulu (1964)

Mike’s Take on Stanley Baker Movies ………. Day 10 I should think that this is the most widely known Stanley Baker film and one I hope he was proud of […]

Now Playing : A 1960’s Flashback

I love it when I come across old newspaper listings for what was playing at the theater. The ads feature great come on advertising lines and some pretty cool double […]

When Eight Bells Toll (1971)

“All hell let’s loose when eight bells toll.” New to me thanks to a Kino Lorber release on blu ray is this Alistair MacLean penned adventure featuring a young Anthony Hopkins in a James […]

Crest of the Wave (1954)

It seems as if every actor has a credit on their list of roles that seems to be an odd casting. One not in keeping with their accustomed output. Case […]

Lady of Vengeance (1957)

In this low budget effort by way of England, we find American born Dennis O’Keefe taking top billing and starring as a tough no nonsense newspaper owner/editor. As the credits […]

Gideon’s Day (1958)

This day in the life tale of a Scotland Yard inspector may not be the most talked about title of the great John Ford’s career. But who cares, it’s an […]

Theater of Blood (1973)

Tonight Kristina and I each celebrate a film in the career of our “friend” Vincent Price. Although I have not seen every film of Vincent’s career I have seen the […]

Guns at Batasi (1964)

“The only way you’ll ever fulfill yourself is to die in action!” A very suitable quote aimed at Sergeant-Major Richard Attenborough in this military tale that has it’s moments. And […]

The Third Secret (1964)

Leaning towards Hitchcock with a dash of Hammer and an arty feel doesn’t help this well cast thriller that in the end plays far to melodramatically. Stephen Boyd leads the […]

The Black Rose (1950)

Once again 20th Century Fox casts one of their strongest box office assets, Tyrone Power in an adventure where swords, sandals and jolly old England play a substantial part. Essentially Ty […]

The Malta Story (1953)

Alec Guinness was generally in a great run of comedies for Ealing Studios when he made this venture into war torn drama with a love interest thrown in for good […]
