Forgotten Action Titles For the VHS Fan

Every generation has their very own outlet for lower tier flicks aimed at the fans who love to wallow in less than stellar “A” list productions. MGM and the other […]

Man With the Gun (1955)

Considering this western casts “A” list” star, Robert Mitchum in the title role, it has the feel of a low budget entry worthy of a Rory Calhoun or an Audie Murphy. Then […]

Wake of the Red Witch (1948)

This film produced during John Wayne’s tenure with Republic Studios not only offers one of the better non western adventures of his career but also as a film we can […]

Posse (1975)

The iconic film star, Kirk Douglas, only directed two movies in his lengthy career, the first was a misfire titled Scalawag in 1973, the second being this off kilter western that plays […]

Wild Bill Wellman ; Hollywood Rebel

By William Wellman Jr. What do you know about Wild Bill? Me? I think of airplane pictures and tough guy actors that populated his films. Titles like Wings and The […]

Cahill : United States Marshall (1973)

“You call the tune and you pay the piper. Meaning… you don’t like the treatment, don’t rob the banks. ” When a line like that is spoken by John Wayne, it’s […]

It’s a “Novel” Idea

Not sure about you but when I went looking around the local bookstores at an impressionable age, seeing a paperback novel release with an actor’s mug on the cover lent […]

Fair Wind to Java (1953)

Good or bad, there’s always something that grabs my attention about a seafaring adventure from yesteryear when it comes to movies. Sure this Fred MacMurray title falls closer to bad […]
