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...
