Run of the Arrow

Sam Fuller's superior western classic stars Rod Steiger, Brian Keith, Charles Bronson and Sarita Montiel, and takes on a tall stack of potent issues. A Reb sharpshooter denies the South's defeat, and goes west to join the Sioux nation where he can continue his war against the Yankees. This spin on 'The Man Without a Country' is one of Fuller's best thanks to a generous budget, unflinching action violence and committed performances. Run of the Arrow DVD-r The Warner Archive Collection 1957 / Color / 1:78 enhanced widescreen / 86 min. / Street Date July 7, 2015 / available through the WBshop / 19.49 Starring Rod Steiger, Sarita Montiel, Brian Keith, Ralph Meeker, Jay C.

Exclusive: Marlowe DVD Clip
We have an exclusive clip from the brand new Warner Archive title Marlowe, which is available on DVD starting today. Click below to watch a scene where James Garner tries to give Sharon Farrell a shoulder to cry on.

clickHere for more information on how to order Marlowe from the Warner Archive.

Five-hundred bucks doesn't come easily for private eye Philip Marlowe (James Garner). But when it comes by way of a bribe, it might as well be five cents. He rejects Winslow Wong (Bruce Lee) and his offer of cash...and Wong promptly karates the detective's office into a junkpile. In a colorful whodunit based on Raymond Chandler's The Little Sister, Garner's easygoing style contrasts agreeably with the grim task of sleuthing a case of missing persons, blackmail and ice-pick murders.

Footprints | Review

Director: Steven Peros Writer: Steven Peros Starring: Sybil Temtchine, H.M. Wynant, Pippa Scott People often escape to Hollywood to start their lives anew...and once upon a time a young woman (Sybil Temtchine) wearing a green dress takes that quest quite literally. The woman mysteriously awakens, sprawled across the famed footprints and handprints in front of the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. We never learn her name (she seems to have amnesia) and she rarely speaks, but we are given the opportunity to listen to her internal dialogue. A series of "quirky Hollywood types" try to "help" the dazed and confused woman, including a vagrant (Jeris Lee Poindexter) and a man wearing a bolo tie, Victor (H.M. Wynant). Is she Mira Sorvino? Is she Wonder Woman? Is she Daisy? Why is William Wyler's 1949 film The Heiress important to her? And who the hell is "fountain boy"? With Footprints,

Larry Blamire Renaissance Man

Larry Blamire Renaissance Man
Interviewed by Jessie Lilley

And just what is a “Renaissance Man” anyway? No, I’m not referring to the Voyager episode and I’m also not talking about the Penny Marshall film. In this context, the term Renaissance Man is defined as a person who excels at many different endeavors: the guy can do a lot of stuff and he does it all quite well. Such a one is the subject of this interview.

Larry Blamire first came across my radar when he and I were both living in Hollywood. I was at a private screening in the home of a friend of mine and he rolled a film called The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. I was transfixed. What a delightful way to spend some time; laughing yourself silly. I immediately found a way to contact this man as I wanted to know what makes him tick.

It’s now years later and,

DVD horror news #1: Pontypool, Hard Revenge Milly, Lost Skeleton, etc.
IFC Films and Mpi Media Group gave Fango the first look at cover art for their DVD release of Pontypool (pictured), the acclaimed and unusual zombie thriller starring Stephen McHattie. Also coming this winter from the two companies is another well-received genre film, the Argentinean ghost story The Appeared.

Directed by Bruce McDonald and scripted by Tony Burgess from his book, Pontypool (streeting January 26; see our review here) casts McHattie as a shock jock who, one cold early winter morning, starts receiving mysterious reports from outside about violent and frightening acts committed by the local townspeople. It turns out that they’re infected with a spreading plague that is transmitted via speech and turns them into bloodthirsty killers. In The Appeared (a.k.a. Aparecidos, out January 12), writer/director Paco Cabezas spins the tale of a brother and sister who discover a diary documenting horrific murder and torture 20 years before.

Lee Marvin's "M Squad"- The Complete Series Comes To DVD

  • CinemaRetro
The latest is the seemingly endless string of irresistible DVD collections comes from the good folks at Timeless Video, who have distinguished themselves with some first-class releases of vintage TV series. The latest is their most impressive yet: the 1950s crime series M Squad which helped groom Lee Marvin from supporting actor to leading man presence. Marvin is the stalwart Lt. Frank Ballinger, a Chicago cop who is so unrelentingly serious that he makes Jack Webb look like Richard Simmons. The series was part of the wave of crime shows that flooded the networks during this era, and M Squad was one of the best. The show ran three seasons and was compromised only by the half-hour time running time which made for some abbreviated storylines. The series is a gem in terms of the kinds of cornball cliches that have become part of our pop culture. I always assumed
