  1. Duffy (1968). James Coburn, Susannah York, James Mason, James Fox, John Alderton. Stefane, lady friend and brother hatch a plan to rob their rich father of several million pounds being transported on his yacht in the Med. They travel from London to Tangiers to recruit Duffy, a weathered smuggler and con-artist. Lots of fun. Lots of things to like, including Mr. Coburn at his coolest, Miss York at her slinkiest and sylphiest, the wildest house ever in a movie, super score by Ernie Freeman, and a killer song sung by Lou Rawls: Don't know why it's not a standard.

What he doesn't know, and what he could never imagine is how much is really at stake. Benefit of the Doubt 1984. Paul Antony-Barber, Hetty Baynes. An inexper
  6. It's been shown a couple of times, though not recently. A movie with a similar invasion theme, combining both humor, intrigue, suspense and action is I See a Dark Stranger (1946), starring Deborah Kerr and Trevor Howard.
  7. Just too cute! You can catch one in: Where the Boys Are (1960) Performance (1970) Le Petite Soldat (1963) Le Fille Coupé en Deux (2007)--Yikes! The Collector (1965) Coogan's Run (1995)
  8. This is usually the result of where you get your tv signal from. Past reports of aspect ratio discrepancies on one source have not been duplicated on others. It is an effect of how the settings you have for your TV source interact with the movie as it comes from TCM.
  9. NIghtmare 1942. Diana Barrymore, Brian Donlevy. An ex-gambler helps a beautiful widow, and becomes involved with a murder, secret agents, and saboteurs. 2005. Nicole Roderick, Jonatha Bates. A director is forced to make a movie chronicling the horrific murders he believes he is committing.
  10. Clash By Night 1962. Barbara Stanwyck, Robert Ryan. A woman embittered by failed affairs returns home for a new start, but only finds more of the same. 1964. Terrence Longdon, Jennifer Jayne. A bus carrying prisoners on their way to jail, is hijacked by a gang, who want to free one of the passengers.
