A really funny British comedy from 1950 called SOMETHING IN THE CITY. It's on YouTube.

Just when I thought I'd seen every William Castle film...nope..just found ​The Spirit is Willing.  This falls into the 'more silly than schlocky/scary/fun' category...like Zotz!.  ​Basically, Sid Caesar and wife Vera Miles blame son Barry Gordon for the havoc in their vacation home, but it turns out...it was ghosts.  Some good supporting players--Mary Wickes, John Astin and John McGiver--but the last third really fizzles out.

Thought I'd watch some more Mission: Impossible on Amazon Prime. Up now-- Joan Collins guest stars in a season 3 episode called 'Nicole.' She plays a double agent who falls for Jim (Peter Graves).

Wow! The forum literally blacked out the word BLA CKIE from the film title 'Boston Bla ckie'. Geesh!  :o

 

Yes, the auto censor has a mind of its own. LOL I usually write it together as one word: BOSTONBLACKIE.

And The Falcon, The Whistler, The Crime Doctor, etc. I've never seen any of the Lone Wolf movies but will definitely give them a try if I get the chance!

 

James, are you familiar with Columbia's 'Boston ****' movies with Chester Morris? I saw the initial film in the series last year & enjoyed it a lot. Been wanting more every since.

This is a film I have seen on MOVIES-TV and yea,  while on paper it looks like a winner (detective story,  nice looking gals, etc..) the end result is anything but.     Oh well, there is always the lone wolf.

I'm watching a season 5 episode of the original Mission: Impossible. I chose this one because it's George Sanders' last television role. He plays an arms dealer with a fondness for gambling and Lesley Ann Warren. 'The Merchant' which was originally broadcast in March 1971.

Watched Lloyd Nolan in 'Michael Shayne: Private Detective' (1940) last night. Horrible, badly written movie with an unlikeable lead character. This may have been because the weak script contains no character development for the character of "Michael Shayne". Just all tough guy antics & the typical private dick cliches. 

 

This is disappointing because I had planned on watching the whole series.

Some season 3 episodes of Peter Gunn on Amazon Prime. I love the set design for Edie's new supper club. Very stylish.

THE WIND OF CHANGE, a British B film about racial hatred. An interesting production, which has gained in (cult) status over the years. It's on YouTube.

I'm watching Beyond the Sea with Kevin Spacey and Kate Bosworth.  This film is Spacey's pet project about Bobby Darin.  This film is fantastic.  While I'm not sure how accurate Darin and Sandra Dee's relationship is portrayed (only Darin and Dee would know), I am very impressed with Kevin Spacey's voice as Bobby Darin.  This film is enjoyable for the music alone.  John Goodman is in this film and, per usual, he does a great job.  Someone give this man an Oscar already.

I'm watching Golddiggers of 1933.  I'm not a big fan of Busby Berkeley's choreography, but I do like this movie, because it's so absurd.  "Pettin' in the Park" ? What was that?! Lol.  It's also quite risque, even for pre-code.  The rain sequence in "Pettin' in the Park" is especially scandalous.  You can completely see that some of the ladies are topless or even nude.
