Time to Read a Good Movie

More of those movie tie-ins that can make for a nostalgic look back to simpler times at both the movie theater and the Mom and Pop book shops. Let’s start […]

Cold Sweat (1970)

I’ll agree that this Terence Young directed effort might not be the best movie of Charles Bronson’s career but it might be the best he ever looked on camera. One […]

The Marseille Contract (1974)

aka The Destructors  Long time director Robert Parrish joins forces with a trio of name actors that for me is just too hard to resist. Gentlemen by the names of […]

They Met In The Dark (1943)

If there is one thing I am always interested in, it’s the smooth delivery of James Mason on screen. This time out Mr. Mason has just been thrown out of […]

I’d lay a hefty wager that back in the latter part of the fifties when Gina Lollobrigida was appearing opposite the likes of Burt Lancaster and Rock Hudson, screen heavy […]

Voyage of the Damned (1976)

This story of the SS St.Louis leaving Germany in May of 1939 with over 900 passengers of Jewish decent gives director Stuart Rosenberg the opportunity to work with close to […]

The Prisoner of Zenda (1952)

“Fate doesn’t always make the right man King.” Stewart Granger takes on the dual role in this technicolor version of the famed story fifteen years after Ronald Colman essayed the […]

A Place of One’s Own (1945)

In the spirit of Halloween Kristina from Speakeasy and I assigned each other films of a ghastly nature. For those not accustomed to the Mad Movie Challenge, it’s when Kristina […]
