  • Diamond City

    Diamond City

    British 'western' set in South Africa where scruffy tykes dig for diamonds and try establish a republic. Two-fisted machismo with David Farrar punching villains, young Diana Dors cleaning glasses and Honor Blackman worrying about God.

  • Boston Blackie's Rendezvous

    Boston Blackie's Rendezvous

    Another decent Chester Morris/Blackie comedy/crime outing with him and sidekick 'Runt' accused of murder while they hunt down homicidal asylum escapee Steve Cochran. Check out the duo in black-face. Everyone drank scotch in the 40's.

  • The Bloodstained Butterfly

    The Bloodstained Butterfly

    Gorgeous looking Giallo with grand music and fab opening titles, but thanks to a prolonged courtroom trial - a tad of a drag. Still, fans of the genre will adore Helmut Berger and Evelyn Stewart and the flick-knife killer stabbing chumps.

  • Dragnet


    Jack Webb police procedure gem with great suits and dialogue. "Shotgun murder. The first shot cut him in half, the second made him a crowd."
