Ambush Bay (1966)

Hugh O’Brian is perfectly cast here as a cold blooded, square jawed, iron willed marine sergeant who rides his platoon hard. Raw recruit James Mitchum more than anyone else. 398 more words

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 friend Walter Matthau. 409 more words

The Shepherd of the Hills (1941)

If one didn’t know better you’d think that you were watching a John Ford film here as many of the cast members are from Ford’s stock company. 497 more words

IT! (1966)

Many of us out here grew up before the internet flooded every home and the only way to learn about films was through movie mags like Famous Monsters or hardcover coffee table books down at the library. 450 more words

The Black Pirate (1926)

I like to think of Errol Flynn as the definitive on screen swashbuckler but before Flynn hit tinsel town Douglas Fairbanks really had no equals when it came to on screen swordplay mixed with rousing adventures and fair maidens. 430 more words

Phantom of the Rue Morgue (1954)

With the success of The House of Wax in 1953 it seems more than obvious when viewing this 3-D effort that theĀ  Warner Brothers studio was hoping to duplicate the box office clout of the Vincent Price classic. 396 more words

The Great Locomotive Chase (1956)

Civil War Disney style. Where heroism takes place and not a drop of blood is spilled.

While I am no civil war buff I must admit to loving the films that focus on the war between the states. 415 more words
