MORE APRIL RELEASES:

 

•ARROW IN THE DUST (1954) - Sterling Hayden, Coleen GraY

•BLACK GOLD (1947) - Anthony Quinn, Katherine DeMille

•BLACK PATCH (1957) - George Montgomery, Diane Brewster

•THE HIRED GUN (1957) - Rory Calhoun, Anne Francis

•THE MAURADERS (1955) - Dan Duryea, Jeff Richards, Keenan Wynn

•SOMBRERO (1953) - Ricardo Montalban, Pier Angeli, Yvonne De Carlo, Cyd Charisse, Nina Foch

•SON OF BELLE STARR (1953) - Keith Larsen, Dona Drake, Peggie Castle

Interesting how a few of these coincide with Quinn and Hayden being featured as Star of the Month on TCM.

 

THE MARAUDERS is a very good MGM western, with Duryea giving a solid performance as a villain.

Many of these westerns are a bit obscure. Never heard of them.

THE MARAUDERS is an MGM B film from the mid-50s that airs on TCM and the Encore Westerns channel sometimes. But most of the others are seldom seen low-budget entries from Monogram/Allied Artists.

KID GLOVE KILLER (1942), starring Van Heflin and Marsha Hunt.

ESCAPE FROM EAST BERLIN (1962), starring Don Murray

Surprised it took so long for KID GLOVE KILLER.

 

I hope this means ESCAPE FROM EAST BERLIN will re-air on TCM, to stimulate DVD sales. It's a great little cold War film.

I looked at the Warner Archives site last night and noted an early '70s movie that's never been available on homevideo (or home-dvd•r) before:  EVERY LITTLE CROOK AND NANNY (1972)

 

      I taped it once, circa 2004, from Cinemax.  It's an average caper comedy.  I still have the old VHS upstairs.  I have it perched next to two other movies I taped the same year that I've not yet seen available on any homevideo medium:

 

     Made For Each Other (1971)  Joseph Bologna, Reneè Taylor, Paul Sorvino.  It's a FOX movie.  It's clear after watching this movie that Joseph Bologna had his teeth worked on at some point after this movie was made and when I next saw him in the 1976 comedy "The Big Bus".   I've not seen (yet) the 1974 movie "Mixed Company" so I don't know if he had his choppers fixated by '74, but they were fixed by '76. 

    

     Slow Dancing in the Big City (1978)  Paul Sorvino, Anne Ditchburn, Nicolas Coster.  A John G. Avildsen film directed in the style of 'Rocky' (I think so, anyway).          

 

     Last night's Ant'ney Quinn movie , FLAP, had never been on video either before Warner Archives made it available on DVD-R.

SIGNPOST TO MURDER is very good. I highly recommend it. ONCE A THIEF is so-so (it also stars Van Heflin in one of his last movie roles).

 

I've never seen THE SECRET PARTNER. I am guessing it's a British production.

Glad to see Cantor is getting his due. He paved the way for Goldwyn's productions with Danny Kaye a decade later.

I agree. Surprised it took so long for the one with Robert Montgomery (JUNE BRIDE) to be released.

I believe THE CLAY PIGEON was the second film Williams & Hale made. They were both under contract at RKO and were married from 1946 to 1992 (his death).

 

RIFF-RAFF recently aired on TCM and is quite good. Walter Slezak costars.

I hate Warner Archive DVDs. How about getting with the rest of the market....and put some bonus features on em?

Yeah Chris-- it's a tradeoff because we're supposed to be so happy it's been released on a disc at all, that we do not complain about the lack of bonus material.

That's what I hear all the time. Not me,I won't touch Warner Archives until they make a better product. That company made over a billion dollars on Harry Potter alone...they can afford pennies on the dollar to upgrade their product.

6/23 RELEASE

 

FIVE CAME BACK, stars Lucille Ball, Chester Morris.

I thought this title was out eons ago. That's a shocker. It's a cult classic. Why did they delay the release...?

Thanks for the clarification. It is much appreciated. FIVE CAME BACK is my favorite Chester Morris film. Well, maybe my second fave of his.
