Yeti, Giant of the 20th Century Finally Coming to DVD in the 21st Century

28 March 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

Anyone who knows me knows I’ve long been a fan of the fairly obscure late 70s King Kong-inspired giant monster epic Yeti, Giant of the 20th Century. Barely released on VHS, never before on DVD, finally - at long last - this delirious b-movie bonanza is finally getting its long overdue DVD release.

For the uninitiated, Yeti, Giant of the 20th Century is a 1977 Italian production shot in Canada and then badly dubbed into English that was designed to ride the coattails of the 1976 big budget King Kong remake. Long before The Asylum the Italians were the true kings of the mockbuster.

From Gianfranco Parolini Aka Frank Kramer, co-writer and director of the Lee Van Cleef/Yul Brenner spaghetti western trilogy Sabata, Adios, Sabata, and The Return of Sabata, and starring Antonella Interlenghi (Fulci’s City of the Living Dead), Tony Kendall (Ossorio’s Return of the Evil Dead »

Warner Archive Collection unsaddles The Complete Third and Fourth Seasons of Maverick on DVD

7 March 2014 10:48 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg reviews the DVD releases of The Complete Third and Fourth Seasons of Maverick...

As much as James Garner (Murphy’s Romance) is associated with the Western television series Maverick one is reminded when watching the episodes again that other members of the family of con artists and poker players make an appearance, in particularly Jack Kelly (Forbidden Planet) who unlike Garner appeared in all five seasons.  The partnership of brothers Bret (Garner) and Bart (Kelly) allowed for a lot of mischievous antics which saw them encounter corrupt lawmen, hostile Indians, beautiful damsels, and conniving cattle ranchers.

Always quoting words of wisdom from their dear Pappy, James Garner got the opportunity to play dual role of the elder Maverick in an episode named after him; the show stars Adam West (Batman) as villain with a cowboy hat which predates his transformation into a superhero wearing a cape and cowl. »

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

4 February 2014 12:16 AM, PST | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

James Stewart plays a frontier lawyer who gains a legendary reputation after gunning down a fearsome outlaw. That John Wayne only got second billing was a measure of Stewart's standing with both audiences and director John Ford, but it was destined to be a classic no matter where their names appeared in the credits. As for Lee Marvin and Lee Van Cleef, well, bad guys don't come badder. »
