Those are good titles. I did create a post called ADDICTS.

 

There are a few others that haven't been mentioned yet:

 

BIGGER THAN LIFE...James Mason gets hooked on pain killers (directed by Nicholas Ray)

MONKEY ON MY BACK...an MGM addiction tale from the 50s.

The film is a 1957 biopic starring Cameron Mitchell as Barney Ross, a world champion boxer and war hero who became addicted to morphine and overcame it. (Available at Netflix.)

My theme was more toward *Rehab* than just an average "drug" movie.

 

You wouldn't call Cheech and Chong's "Up in Smoke" a *Rehab* theme, lol!

I have only a 56K modem and dialup, so looking back on all those pages takes a long time. I guess certain movie titles would be replicated, depending on the themes especially if their plots are closely tied. together :)

 

So (if you have not already mentioned it) for *Addicts* , I guess

 

"Up in Smoke"?

*Rehab? oh man what's rehab?*

PS He's not in rehab either.

> I'd say that Korda's *The Four Feathers* is a better film than any of the 'fours' on your list.

 

Probably. I was going with the four titles that go together in that particular series. I did not include DAUGHTERS COURAGEOUS which uses the same cast as the first three, since it is a somewhat different story with a different family.

You posted *QUEENS OF HORROR*, "Berserk", starring Joan Crawford.

As Christina would say TELL me about it!

 

Why am I so tempted to post "Mommie Dearest"

 

I've watch that special about celebrity *Wills* on the Investagative Discovery Channel about Joan Crawfords Last Will and Testament. Thank god the kitchen sink was bolted down.

I've always wanted to do a joke about the Yor movie since I saw that turkey. Here it goes -

<< Yor with his freinds and a tag-along visited his mother and hugged her. The stranger asked Yor's freind, who was he hugging. The reply was Yor mama! >>
