Critica Retro Posted by Lê on Sep 11, 2019

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Sep 10, 2019

The year is 1866. The Civil War is over and anyone with vision is moving west. One such outpost is Kansas where the railway is replacing the stagecoach. It’s a world of iron men and iron horses. Because a place like the notorious Dodge City is a “town that knew no ethics but cash and kil read more

Hometowns to Hollywood Posted by Annette Bochenek on Sep 10, 2019

For me, no trip to Southern California is complete without immersing myself in filmmaking history. On my first visit to Los Angeles, I tried to fit in as many studio tours as possible, just to be able to walk in the footsteps of some of my favorite stars. The tour at Warner Brothers, in particular, read more

THE UNDEAD

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Sep 10, 2019

THE UNDEAD (1957) is almost impossible to categorize. It's a wild mixture of reincarnation, time travel, medieval witchcraft, devil worship, and post-WWII science-fiction. The movie was produced and directed by the legendary Roger Corman, and released by American-International Pictures. Nearly ever read more

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Sep 10, 2019

Finding Zsa Zsa: The Gabors Behind the Legend Sam Staggs Kensington Books, 2019 It’s fair to say that the Gabor women never bored anyone.

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Sep 10, 2019

Movies made Carole Lombard a legend, but it wasn't the only medium she made her mark in. Sometime in the 1920s, the Peters family -- Jane Alice (her birth name), brothers Frederic and Stuart, and mother Elizabeth Peters -- purchased their first radio set, and it may have resembled this mid-twenties read more

RINGO AND HIS GOLDEN PISTOL

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Sep 9, 2019

A couple days ago TCM aired the 1966 Euro Western RINGO AND HIS GOLDEN PISTOL, and I was able to watch it last night through an Xfinity app. The original Italian title of the film is JOHNNY ORO.

The Flying Fish (2019, Murat Sayginer)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Sep 9, 2019

It’s a little hard to describe The Flying Fish. At least without describing it in relation to other things. It’s what happens when Dr. Manhattan leaves, it’s a Boris Vallejo sexy robot painting turned into a movie, it’s like if early nineties POV-Ray renders looked real, it’s… It’s often read more

Carole Lombard, RKO (plenty of) style

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Sep 9, 2019

Carole Lombard's arrival at RKO in the spring of 1939, for the likes of "In Name Only" (a publicity still for which is shown above), coincided with her long-sought marriage to Clark Gable. That accomplishment infused Carole with confidence, and it showed in her fashion photographs.Take this, for ins read more

Captain Blood (1935) Starring Flynn and De Havilland

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Sep 8, 2019

To a certain stratum of society — namely classic movie fans — it’s nearly impossible to imagine Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland not being paired together or not being box office draws, for that matter. However, on both accounts in 1935, the studio was taking quite the risk, st read more
