    The Time Machine


    I’ve read the source novel and was looking forward to the movie. It is nowhere near as thought-provoking but still a fun special effects adventure.

    Dressed to Kill


    The finale in the series of Rathbone/Bruce Sherlock Holmes films is a tribute to the Conan Doyle story A Scandal in Bohemia. A mistress of disguises leads a gang that will stop at nothing to retrieve three music boxes. These will give the crooks virtually a license to print money. As always, Sherlock Holmes is just a little too smart for her.

    Given the quality of the average B movie of the period, these films are small masterpieces and remarkable for their consistency.
