The Wild Bunch (1969)

If someone asks me if I’d like to partake in a glass of fine wine aged to perfection, I’ll pass as I would much rather watch Sam Peckinpah’s stunning end […]

Collecting the Lobby Card Part 1

O.k. I admit it. I love to show off the collectibles associated with movies I have amassed since I was given a weekly allowance. One of the great ways of […]

Escape to Burma (1955)

“You look like you need a hand.” That’s a heck of a line that says so much in a movie where the hero only has one good arm and not […]

Man In The Dark (1953)

Edmond O’Brien. The name alone puts us right into the world of Noir cinema. Star of The Killers, White Heat and D.O.A. to name a few. This time out Eddie […]
