Which ones did you like or dislike?
I liked Two on a Guillotine and My Blood Runs Cold. Fun 60s camp.
I saw "Mary Mary" on Saturday Night at the Movies about 45 years ago. I'd sort of like to see it again, but I have a feeling that it probably isnt any good.
Too Much Too Soon - Dorothy Malone as Diana Barrymore, unfortunate daughter of John Barrymore, played by Errol Flynn a year before he died, from 1958. Dot runs the gamut here starting as a teenager and ending a raddled wreck. Theres hunky men too - Ray Danton as that nasty tennis coach.
Youngblood Hawk - an early 60s delight, with James Franciscus (in the Troy Donahue part) and Suzanne Pleshette, Mary Astor etc. Another Delmer Daves sudser, it looks good in black and white. 1964.
Night Watch - dreadful but entertaining early 70s shocker re-uniting Liz Taylor (dig her fancy clothes!) and Laurence Harvey, who died shortly after. 1973
I love, love, love TWO ON A GUILLOTINE!!!
I bought "Eye of the Devil" with Deborah Kerr, David Niven, Sharon Tate, and (sigh!) David Hemmings. Nowhere near "The Innocents" or even "The Wicker Man", but it's beautifully photographed and atmospheric. The transfer looks pretty good.
I'm thinking of also buying "Wild, Wild Planet" and "Tarzan's Greatest Adventure" with Gordon Scott.
Youngblood Hawke was mentioned in Bad Movies We Love - always wanted to see it but never had the chance. It sounds like a camp hoot.
"Julie" with Doris Day is great silly fun!
^ I saw Julie on TCM. The last 20 minutes or so are a riot, with Doris trying to land the plane
Has anyone seen Fog Over Frisco with Miss Bette Davis?
"The Cool Ones"
OP, I just bought the 2 Maisie dvd collections during there last sale but I have not watched them yet.
I saw a fascinating curio called MEN IN WHITE starring Clark Gable and Myrna Loy. Abortion was an unspoken but dealt with in the film, which was harmed by coming out right after the Hays Code was put in place.
MEN IN WHITE won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama--I think theGroup Theatre produced it.
I've been thinking about picking up "Ada" starring Susan Hayward. Has anyone seen this before?
I never saw Ada but they made it sound like campy fun in Bad Movies We Love
They're having a buy 5 DVDs for $45 sale going on now until 1/14.
Yeah its trash but damn I loved it. Used to watch it all the time as kid
I might have to pick up The Phantom Tollbooth. Absolutely loved that as a kid.
As a child we were watching Two on a Guillotine with my 8th grade sister babysitting us. We heard someone open the back door of our house and were terrified and sent my twin sister to see who it was. She came back into the TV room screaming "Run, it's a bum" so we all ran into the bathroom, locked the door, removed the screen from the window and jumped from the second floor to escape.
We ran across the street and knocked on our neighbor's door and asked if he would search our house which he did. The next morning my mom received a call from a friend who said her father had come by to deliver some eggs, no one answered the door, so he let himself in and he hoped he hadn't frightened anyone. We didn't share our previous night's escapade and told our mom we had no idea what he was talking about.
"They're having a buy 5 DVDs for $45 sale going on now until 1/14."
Thanks for the heads up!
In my shopping cart right now:
A Stolen Life
Is "The Cool Ones" widescreen? It was shot is superwide Panawhatever but the TV prints always show the credits wide and then zoom into pan and scan, even the TCM showings...
They are having a 5 movies for $50 sale that runs until Sept.9th.
I just bought Brainstorm, Hysteria, Girl of the Streets, Mister Buddwing, and A Covenant With Death (starring homos George Maharis and Earl Holliman)
I thought I was the only one who loved "Julie", it's probably my favorite DD movie (along with Young At Heart). Love the main title theme song and the rest of the score.
They have Let's Scare Jessica to Death (I know some DLers were discussing it recently)
I'm also a huge "Julie" fan. It's one of the oldest camp classics. But unlike Doris Day, I wouldn't mind being chased around by a psycho husband if he looked as hot as Louis Jourdan does in the movie.
Here's a hillarious review of the movie.
r25, that site is awesome. Thanks for linking to it!
I'm with R26, I love that stuff, thanks R25.
Well, at least Doris Day got Carmel out of "Julie". I still love the movie (and the "sappy" theme song).
The Whisperers. Edith Evans' great performance.
Chapman Report, a camp classic. Jane Fonda! Glynis Johns! Claire Bloom! Ty Hardin! Shelly Winters!
I've just ordered a Clint Walker (I almost wrote Eastwood!) western "Yellowstone Kelly" which has an intriguing scene with Clint and Edd Byrnes sharing their log cabin in the wilderness ... Clint gets to display his impressive chest, as he does in those other Warner westerns 'Ford Dobbs' and 'Gold of the 7 Saints' - more homoerotic fun with a young Roger Moore ! Cant wait.
Clint Walker was soooo hot
I lot of their MOD titles were available as legit pressed DVDs at one time. You can find original versions of both "Demon Seed" and "Let's Scare Jessica To Death," for example, from amazon marketplace sellers or on ebay for about the same price as these "new" made-on-demand discs.
I watched Winter Meeting, one of Bette Davis's late 40s films. Her friend in the movie is played by John Hoyt and the character is SO OBVIOUSLY GAY even though they couldn't say it back then. He's clearly her "gay bestie" - I'm surprised they didn't have a clip of this in The Celluloid Closet
I bought Diane with Lana Turner and The Wild North with Stewart Granger and Cyd Charisse but I haven't watched them yet
THE SORCERERS (67). Raddled Karloff and Catherine Lacey, as his vicious old cunt of a wife, live vicariously through hot swingin' Ian Ogilvy in a seedy psychedelic London. 23 year-old Micahel Reeves put everybody through their paces, before killing himself a year later. Made for about 1000 pounds. And must be seen to be believed.
R33, that sounds like a scream.
Has anyone bought any of the "Forbidden Hollywood" collections?
Helen of Troy Aikman
The MGM "Crime Does Not Pay" shorts collection is fun
The Walking Stick (1970) is a very good film. Recently got a copy and it was better than I remembered.
I was disappointed with Bad Ronald (I know, blasphemy)-but I'm not American so I guess I didn't 'get it' or at least had no childhood memories of it.
Great thread! As soon as they hit sale mode (new releases are usually exempt) I am getting those obscure Greer Garson and John Garfield films! Plus the interesting-sounding MEN OF THE FIGHTING LADY, in proper widescreen

& this is the antiques shop he works in...
I hope they have "Miranda." Glynnis Johns, one of my all-time faves, plays a mermaid. Quelle hoot!!!
The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse ( 1960) Glenn Ford, Charles Boyer, Yvette Mimieux, and Swedish actress Ingrid Thulin who was so difficult to understand, her lines were dubbed by..... Angela Lansbury. Directed by VIncente Minnelli.
Night Watch. Elizabeth Taylor in a thriller that worked better on stage with Joan Hackett. Laurence Harvey in his final screen appearance
Show Boat ( 1936). Irene Dunn, Helen Morgan. Vastly superior to the 50's MGM Technicolor remake.
Any Wednesday Jane Fonda, Jason Robards, Dean Jones in film version of stage comedy sex farce.
