This review is from: Assassin for Hire [DVD] (DVD)
Excellent British B crime flick. Quite tough for its time with an excellent portrayal from Sydney Tafler. I just wish his brother could have got shot early in the film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Even At This Price, 12 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Even with the wonderful Vincent Price these are hard going. The first by far the better of the two. With the second I found impossible to finish watching. Even Fabian who kept his fifties haircut until long after the Beatles invasion. Looking awful in some Italians idea of a Mersey mop top cut.

One of the very greatest rock'n'rollers. Old school, first school, best school. Only Elvis out sold Fats back in the day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated But Entertaining War As It Never Was., 12 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very interesting premise with strong performances all round. Becomes much too 'Boy's Own' adventure and unbelievable towards the end. With way too many 'good' Germans on display. Hell with these guys there would have been no need for a Second Front.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast moving an fun plus strong cast, 12 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
30s'B' films with - for me - 'I've Got Your Number' the most entertaining. Complete with machine gun rapid fire dialogue. Fast moving an fun plus strong cast. While the studio bound 'Havana Widows' minimum budget showing as the film crawls along. Made me hope for Castro and his crew to liberate the Cubans and us the suffering audience.

This review is from: The Spoilers (1955) (DVD)
Garish full technicolour production plus excellent cast. Typical 'b' western of the period delivered with a flourish. Hear too that line that line from 'Casablanca' . You know the one Bogie didn't say !!

4.0 out of 5 stars All The News That Fits..........., 12 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sensation [DVD] (DVD)
1930s crime flick dealing with the gutter press. Dated for sure but still a fast paced thriller. Still with a valid point to make about the corruption of our 'richman's press'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Hip Or Even Hep, 12 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A warped Hollywood dime store take on the Beats of the time. So wrong as these guys always did get it wrong. Rock'n'roll or jazz they so rarely got it right. And in this movies they didn't even get close. See it and be bemused and for Ray Dalton as 'the Aspirin Kid' and brutish Steve Cochran as the cop. Very unpleasant story line which got the flick an X certificate back in its day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Andy Hardy Gets Union Card & Totes A Gun, 12 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pulp fiction during Mickey's gangster period. Terrific 'drive-in' fun and following on from his classic jailbreak movie the remake of 'The Last Mile'. All I need now is to be able to buy his 'Babyface Nelson' and 'Platinum High' flicks on DVD.
