Dead End (1937)

Some films from yesteryear just seem to play better to today’s modern audiences and I would number Dead End among them thanks to the strong direction of William Wyler and the […]

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 […]

Dakota (1945)

Officially I guess we’d call this a western but it’s not exactly the type we most often associate with John Wayne. If you’re at all familiar with some of his […]

Johnny Guitar (1954)

I hadn’t actually seen this Nicholas Ray western since I was first discovering films as a kid and my tuning in to see it on a late show was mainly […]

Slightly Dangerous (1943)

Though this may not be the best screwball comedy that I’ll watch this year, there’s no denying that MGM has thrown together an unbelievable cast of recognizable faces in support of […]

Virtue (1932)

From Harry Cohn’s Columbia studios comes this fine example of the Hollywood pre-code era when studios would put more risqué topics on the screen, splashing it with a healthier dose of skin and sex […]

Frontier Marshal (1939)

When Edward G. Robinson’s soft spoken scientist catches Humphrey Bogart off guard he is quick to note, “a magnificent specimen of pure viciousness.” That he is but as usual, it’s […]

Mr. Moto’s Gamble (1938)

Through a rather strange set of circumstances, Peter Lorre finds himself solving a murder centered around the fight game where Ward Bond takes on Dick Baldwin for the Heavyweight Championship. […]

The Shootist (1976)

It is my belief that there has never been a better swan song in the movies than John Wayne’s role as J.B. Books in this Don Siegel directed film that surrounded […]

The Filmography Factor

There was a time before the we had the luxury of the internet at our fingertips. Remember those days? No IMDB. Very few books detailing the careers of most film […]

Topper (1937)

“Drive in that? You’re asking me to drive in a car that looks like a painted Jezebel. And drive it to a roadhouse? Why, it’d be like going to the […]

Mister Roberts (1955)

Mister Roberts is a film that one can either be for or against when comparing it to the actual stage play from whence it came. Unfortunately for Henry Fonda who […]
