IMDbTV Pick: Showtime's "Penny Dreadful"

The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.

The Roy Rogers Show: The Knockout is one of Charles Bronson's first film appearances
18 October 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This episode is notable because it's one of the earliest appearances of one Charles Buchinsky, later known as Charles Bronson. He plays Willie 'Killer' Conley, a boxer who somehow unknowingly got mixed up with some jewel robbers. Roy, Dale, and Pat try to straighten him up with the help of his grandma. In the meantime, Pat takes some physically hilarious lessons from Bronson and Roy later fights Bronson himself in a boxing match that the thieves try to use to their advantage. As usual, there's humor and action galore to keep the kiddies entertained and for film buffs like myself, the chance to see one of the earliest appearances of one of the future film icons of the last century. Worth a look for fans of all of the above.
