Now Playing Monday July 21st, 1969.

Western fans rejoice! I’d be in my glory taking in five westerns we all know and love playing at the same time in downtown Toronto if I could go back […]

The Front Page (1974)

Sure it’s been done before and yes the Cary Grant-Rosalind Russell-Howard Hawks version is a classic that no one should ever try to improve upon. Agreed no? But what if Billy […]

A Novel Idea…. The Next Chapter.

Never judge a movie by it’s book cover. In my never ending search for movie memorabilia I frequently hit book shops and thrift stores and inevitably find myself looking at […]

Now Playing October 30th, 1971

Who’s Got the Action (1962)

The War Between Men and Women (1972)

Comedy writer and director Melville Shavelson takes a stab at an uneven mixture of comedy and an odd sense of style with Jack Lemmon as the central figure in this […]

California Suite (1978)

I must say that with a cast like the one that turned up for this Neil Simon screenplay the laughs don’t come nearly as often as I would have liked […]

The Klaus Kinski Explosion

I can never get to much of a good Klaus Kinski story. His films with Werner Herzog are the stuff of legends. The stories whether fabricated as Herzog has suggested […]

Kotch (1971)

Jack Lemmon only directed one film during his award winning career. Wouldn’t you just know that the actor he cast in the lead role was his frequent costar and longtime […]
