New Who Review – “Mummy on the Orient Express”

13 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

There’s one of two things you can be almost guaranteed of when you see a story that takes place on a train – romance, or a murder.

Mummy On The Orient Express

By  Jamie Mathieson

Directed by Paul Wilmshurst

As a farewell fling, The Doctor takes Clara on a trip aboard the Orient Express in space, exactingly copied from the original, except for the bit about being spaceworthy.  It becomes quickly apparent that all is not well on the craft – a mysterious unseen beast is killing people exactly 66 seconds after the victim sees it – and no one else does.  It turns out this particular journey is a massive two-fold trap – the ship is filled with scientists versed in areas of research that pertain to the beast, and are pressed into service to capture it, by any means necessary.

Mickey Rooney Appreciation: Noir Films Showed He Was More Than a Teen Star

8 April 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From 1937 to 1946, Mickey Rooney played clean-cut, wide-eyed Midwestern teenager Andy Hardy 15 times in a series of films that proved instrumental (along with his Judy Garland musicals) in making him one of the most popular movie stars of his era. They also surely came to feel like a gilded prison around the actor. By the time the series ended, the Hardy character had been to WWII and back (as had Rooney), yet still seemed incapable of getting past first base with a girl (whereas Rooney was already on the second of his eight marriages).

The Mickster’s thirst for more adult roles was palpable, and Hollywood took a few different stabs at figuring out what to do with him.
