Films in 2015: July

I watched a lot of movies this month, but a majority of them were spent in the shadows of film noir thanks to TCM’s Summer of Darkness. 681 more words

Films In 2015

Robinson Crusoe on Mars (1964, Byron Haskin)

Robinson Crusoe on Mars is silly. It’s inconsistent and silly. The film survives a weak first act–the narrative trick of opening with one character (played, poorly, by Adam West) and then transferring to another (Paul Mantee) is fine, only Mantee doesn’t get any good material for quite a while. 283 more words

Bad Blonde: TOO LATE FOR TEARS (1949)

I just finished viewing the 1949 feature TOO LATE FOR TEARS on TCM. The title may sound like a weepy tearjerker, but this is film noir dynamite. 740 more words

John Payne Double Bill of "B"s ..... King of the Lumberjacks (1940) and Kid Nightingale (1939)

As I embarked on a life of film studies at an early age the only thing I knew about John Payne was that his name rhymed with the greatest cowboy icon of them all. 971 more words

Daily Take

Odessa, Texas: October 9, 1955.

While doing some research on George Sherman’s The Treasure Of Pancho Villa (1955), I came across The Odessa American from October 9, 1955. What was playing around town was incredible. 151 more words

Robinson in Space

ROBINSON CRUSOE ON MARS, directed by sci-fi old hand Byron Haskin, is a movie I should really have seen as a kid, but I only just saw it now. 471 more words
