Park Row

7 August 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

A gritty newspaper saga about two battling tabloids shot like one of Fuller’s war movies, Park Row was one from the heart. Fuller began his career as a crime reporter at the ripe old age of 17 and claimed this period drama as his favorite of his films. Ignoring his pal Darryl Zanuck’s suggestion that he make it a star-laden color musical, Fuller financed his ink-stained morality play himself and lost his shirt.  Despite its shoestring budget the period flavor is so strong you can almost smell the newsprint. Fuller regular Gene Evans stars in his greatest role.

Donovan’s Brain | Blu-ray Review

8 March 2016 8:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Both of the Siodmak brothers made indelible contributions to genre filmmaking, particularly Robert Siodmak’s sterling film noir titles. His brother, Curt Siodmak was more recognizable as a screenwriter, penning a variety of B horror titles such as The Wolf Man (1941) and usually assigned to pen sequels to a number of other franchises, such as The Invisible Man, Dracula, and Frankenstein. Oddly, his 1942 science fiction novel Donovan’s Brain would receive three separate cinematic adaptations of its own (including The Lady and the Monster in 1944 and The Brain in 1962), all informed by particular topical elements of the decade they were mounted in, though none of them particularly astounding in their rudimentary illustrations of science gone wrong.

Dr. Patrick Corey (Lew Ayres) is experimenting on brains out of his lab from the privacy of his country home. Assisted by Dr. Frank Schratt (Gene Evans) and his complacent wife Janice (Nancy Regan »

29 February 2016 5:04 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Blinded by science!

Gene Evans and Nancy Reagan assist in Curt Siodmak's creative, compelling tale of possession by mental remote control. Donovan's Brain Blu-ray Kl Studio Classics 1953 / B&W / 1:37 flat Academy / 83 min. / Street Date March 22, 2016 / available through Kino Lorber / 29.95 Starring Lew Ayres, Gene Evans, Nancy Reagan, Steve Brodie, Tom Powers, Lisa K.

Blu-ray Review – Fixed Bayonets! (1951)

17 February 2016 6:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fixed Bayonets!, 1951.

Directed by Samuel Fuller.

Starring Richard Basehart, Gene Evans, Michael O’Shea, Richard Hylton, Skip Homeier and James Dean.

Synopsis:

The story of a platoon during the Korean War. One by one Corporal Denno’s superiors are killed until it comes to the point where he must try to take command responsibility.

Here’s a tightly wound ball of suspense with the duality of fatalisms and heroism at the heart. It’s the Korean War and there’s snow up to the knees, and for an hour and half Samuel Fuller puts us amongst the American platoon who have the unenviable task of acting as the rear guard, and fooling the enemy into thinking they are in fact the whole damn regiment; with a little subterfuge, planning, and a whole lot of courage these brave few show us it can be done. Heroes will be made and heroes will be lost. »
