Child's Play (1972)

I just watched Child's Play for the first time. What an interesting film.

The film is about three teachers at a prestigious boys preparatory school in New England. When the boys start bullying other boys, the two senior instructors start to turn on each other in a most vile way.

Directed by Sidney Lumet

James Mason, Robert Preston, and Beau Bridges.

I always thought this film was about toys coming to life. I thought I saw it but I guess not. Does anyone know the ridiculous horror movie where one of those little ring boxing dolls attacks a teenager in an elevator by leaping on them and giving a karate chop? It was hilarious and I would like to watch it again.

Sidney Lumet is virtually unknown anymore.

I just rewatched “Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead” recently, and the tension is exquisite torture.

^ Dog Day Afternoon, Serpico, Murder on the Orient Express, 12 Angry Men, Network, The Pawnbroker. Long Day's Journey into Night, The Verdict, Prince of the City, The Hill, Fail Safe. . .and yes, The Wiz. All directed by Lumet The Hill (1964) set in a British labor camp in South Africa is very powerful and Connery was never better and The Prince of the City (1981) is highly recommended.
