It's a Wonderful Life
I looked up the writers of the classic Frank Capra flick It's a Wonderful Life. Capra's name was among them, and when I did some further-depth research about his own life, I was a little surprised to …
reviewed You'll Never Get Rich. February 21, 2012
If you are a committed Fred Astaire fan and, with his movies, an Astaire completist, you'll want to have You'll Never Get Rich. It's the story of Robert Curtis (Astaire), a Broadway choreographer …
reviewed Behind Locked Doors. October 02, 2011
Behind Locked Doors
If you like Forties B-movies -- especially Forties B-movie noirs -- Behind Locked Doors might bring a contented smile to your face. It's no more than what it is, but the plot is an old reliable one …

reviewed Yellow Sky. June 21, 2011
Yellow Sky
When it comes to the movies, in my opinion craftsmanship trumps art most of the time. William Wellman's Yellow Sky is a movie with an intriguing story-line, strong characters in conflict, well-paced …
reviewed Lust for Gold. June 20, 2011
Lust for Gold
This forgotten gem is an A movie trying to break out of a B movie's conventions. Even as a B movie, if Lust for Gold had been directed by William Wellman many people would be raving over it. But it …

The Woman in the Window (1944)
The Woman in the Window has an ending almost guaranteed to infuriate you the first time you see the movie, and, the second time, to leave you with an immensely satisfied smile.       …

Strange Illusion (1945)
Hamlet, Freud and Edgar Ulmer may seem like an unnatural group of pals, but among them they have come up with a tidy little psychological thriller. In fact, with a bigger budget and stronger actors, Ulmer …

Ziegfeld Follies
Watching this MGM review musical is a little like being a graduate student on an archeology dig. You'll find a lot to sift through, and one or two things you find still shine.       …

Can't go wrong with James Cagney. If you're a lover of dance, his style of tap is the most unique and completely addictive to watch

reviewed Dressed to Kill (1946). March 25, 2011
Here we have three wooden music boxes that play the same tune...almost; a femme fatale as beautiful as she is deadly; the old darling Sam Johnson giving Holmes a key clue; and the last of Sherlock Holmes …
reviewed Hamlet (1948). March 06, 2011
Hamlet (1948)
I'm no more competent to discuss Hamlet as literature than I am to ride a horse. So let's talk about it as a story and as a movie. On both counts, this 1948 version -- shaped and edited, directed …
reviewed The Lady from Shanghai. February 20, 2011
The Lady from Shanghai
Watch The Lady from Shanghai and then outline the plot. Watch it again, if you like, or perhaps three times. And don’t peek at Wikipedia. I gave up, but I still enjoyed the movie a great deal. I …

It took me years to finally get a copy of this film, but when I did, it was worth the wait. Having enjoyed Cagney's cameo as George M. Cohan in The Seven Little Foys (only one scene, but he completely …

Now, Voyager
We are all used to seeing Bette Davis playing characters strong enough to break I-Beams over, but in this one she does the unthinkable--she plays a weak woman (not forever) before she ... well ... gonna …
