Now Playing 1963 / 1965 London, Ontario

A couple of vintage newspapers revealed some interesting combinations at the local theaters here in London, Ontario, Canada. Plenty of viewing choices to pick from and not a superhero in […]

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 […]

A Matter of Life and Death (1946)

aka Stairway to Heaven. For this month’s Mad Movie Challenge, Kristina of Speakeasy has handed me a wonderfully filmed fantasy tale from the team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger […]

Ten Little Indians (1974)

No this isn’t the acclaimed 1945 version from director Rene Clair starring two of the great scene stealers of that decade in Barry Fitzgerald and Walter Huston, what it does represent […]

Swedish import Mai Zetterling finds herself cast in the lead role of this Michael Anderson feature set during the fall of 1945. She’s arrived in England claiming to the be […]

With my focus on Oliver Reed films beginning shortly I went in search of some interesting appearances. While there are plenty of Oliver Reed interviews available where he is well […]

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 […]

Richard Attenborough was “Big X”

In the Great Escape he planned it. He organized it. He made the decisions. He went through it. He fought to the end. In doing so Richard Attenborough gave the […]

I’m All Right Jack (1959)

Though this film is somewhat of a sequel to 1955’s Private’s Progress one does not need to see that film to jump right into this one and enjoy the hilarity […]

The Flight of the Phoenix (1965)

Robert Aldrich puts together a cast that would ultimately include a total of 5 Oscar winners in this desert saga from 20th Century Fox. Aside from a brief desert mirage […]
