Hornet’s Nest (1970)

Two years before John Wayne took a bunch of schoolboys on as cowhands in The Cowboys, Rock Hudson turned up in this WW2 adventure that found him adopting a ragtag […]

Seas Beneath (1931)

Always on the lookout for a great deal when it comes to collecting movies, I recently scored the Ford at Fox giant box set allowing me to acquire copies of […]

McLintock! (1963)

Rather than focus on the naysayers who take offence to this Duke flick and the reasons why, I’m sticking to my guns here and the fact that I love to […]
