ROGER MOORE'S JAMES BOND DIARY

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on May 12, 2022

 On my latest excursion to Half Price Books, I picked up this little paperback item for $3. ROGER MOORE'S JAMES BOND DIARY was written to coincide with the theatrical release of LIVE AND LET DIE, the first Bond film that Moore starred in. I assume that Moore had some ghostwriting help on t read more

THE DEVIL'S AGENT

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on May 9, 2022

The 27th of this month marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of the legendary Christopher Lee. During my time writing this blog I've done plenty of posts on Lee's films--there's plenty to choose from. One of Lee's more obscure movie appearances is a 1961 German-Irish-British production calle read more

 The generically named IT! is a 1967 horror film I caught up with on TCM yesterday. The movie was written, produced, and directed by Herbert J. Leder, who was responsible for the underwhelming THE FROZEN DEAD. What makes IT! notable is the fact that IT is the Golem, the fabled creature fro read more

EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Apr 26, 2022

 This is a film that has gotten a lot of buzz online, and, since it also stars the legendary Michelle Yeoh, I decided to go out to the theater and see it. It's a production that almost defies description, a wild and oftentimes wacky action/fantasy combination of Hong Kong kung fu cinema, "The M read more

THE BATMAN

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Apr 24, 2022

 Batman is my favorite comic book character, and just about every movie featuring the Dark Knight I've managed to go and see soon after its theatrical release. For the latest one, however, I felt no sense of urgency in seeing it in a theater. It is because I'm burned out by comic book movi read more

FURY AT SMUGGLERS' BAY

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Apr 3, 2022

 I've seen just about every film that my favorite actor, Peter Cushing, has appeared in....but one that has constantly eluded me is FURY AT SMUGGLERS' BAY, a 1961 period adventure. I finally was able to see it this weekend, courtesy of a decent widescreen print on YouTube. The story is set read more

 NOW AND FOREVER is a 1934 Paramount film, directed by Henry Hathaway and starring Gary Cooper, Carole Lombard, and Shirley Temple.

METROPOLIS And The Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Mar 20, 2022

 The spectacular German silent epic METROPOLIS is one of my favorite films of all time. I've been mesmerized and entranced by it since I first saw it as a young teenager. Seeing METROPOLIS at any time, under any circumstances, is a great experience. But seeing the restored version in a the read more

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Mar 17, 2022

 Akira Takarada was one of the true legends of fantastic cinema. Takarada not only appeared in the very first original Godzilla movie made back in 1954, he made several other appearances in the classic series of science-fiction/fantasy films made by Toho Studios in the 1960s.

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Mar 12, 2022

 At the beginning of this year I wrote a series of blog posts on a Sherlock Holmes Blu-ray set from The Film Detective.

Book Review: BUSTER KEATON--A FILMMAKER'S LIFE

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Mar 6, 2022

 I've long been a fan of Buster Keaton--I believe THE GENERAL is one of the greatest films ever made. When it comes to information about Keaton and his films, I've long been frustrated that the many books written about him and his career are lacking in one way or another. This even includes Kea read more

Veronica Carlson (1944-2022)

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on Feb 28, 2022

 This is a post that I never wanted to write. The sudden passing of Veronica Carlson has affected cult movie fans worldwide. It has affected me more than most, because Veronica wasn't just a beautiful actress, and a talented artist--she was a dear friend of mine. The best way to put it is read more
