Hell on Frisco Bay

I tell you it’s rough out there on Frisco Bay, especially when you say the word ‘Frisco’ within earshot of a proud San Francisco native. This Alan Ladd racketeering tale could have been written twenty years earlier, but it has Warner Color and the early, extra-wide iteration of the new movie attraction CinemaScope.

Leonard Nimoy Tribute – Tribbles Double Feature at Schlafly Bottleworks May 6th

“Most curious creature, Captain. Its trilling seems to have a tranquilizing effect on the human nervous system.”

The Star Trek episodes The Trouble with Tribbles and Trials and Tribble-ations both screen at Schalfly Bottleworks in Maplewood Wednesday May 6th beginning at 8pm

You never know what’s brewing at Webster University’s Strange Brew cult film series. It’s always the first Wednesday evening of every month, and they always come up with some cult classic to show while enjoying some good food and great suds. The fun happens at Schlafly Bottleworks Restaurant and Bar in Maplewood (7260 Southwest Ave.- at Manchester – Maplewood, Mo 63143).

It’s a tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy at this month’s Strange Brew Film Series. One of the most popular and deservedly so episodes of Star Trek prime is The Trouble with Tribbles (Season 2, Episode 15 – but you knew that!). A rather self-important diplomat played

Go Lightly to Breakfast At Tiffany’S Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

It’s a bit disheartening looking at the cast of Breakfast At Tiffany’S and realizing that of its main stars, only Mickey Rooney is still alive. Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Balsam, John McGiver, Alan Reed Jr., Stanley Adams, and Dorothy Whitney are all gone, as well as director Blake Edwards, screenwriter George Axelrod, and no doubt the cats who played “Cat”.

Based on the novel by Truman Capote (also deceased), Breakfast At Tiffany’S tells the story of Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) a well-scrubbed bohemian girl who lives how she wants to live – she has all-night parties, the world’s longest cigarette holder, and owns a cat with no name. She meets her new neighbor Paul(George Peppard) in the apartment building she lives in and the two become friends and later in the film find themselves falling in love.

Though I’ve never seen it,

Review: "Mr. Lucky: The Complete Series" On DVD From Timeless Media Group

  • CinemaRetro
Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none

By Harvey Chartrand

Mr. Lucky: The Complete Series is now available for the first time ever as a 4-dvd box set from Timeless Media Group… all 34 episodes, with a running time of about 840 minutes. Mr. Lucky– created by writer/director Blake Edwards (Peter Gunn) – ran for only one season (from 1959 to 1960), even though it was a hit with viewers.

This adventure/crime drama is a sort of Peter Gunn Lite, featuring a lush, organ-powered theme song by Henry Mancini (a bonus CD of Mr. Lucky’s soundtrack is included in the set), an assortment of shady characters aboard a floating casino, and competent acting by series regulars John Vivyan (as suave professional gambler Mr. Lucky), Ross Martin (as his sidekick and business partner Andamo), Pippa Scott (as Mr. Lucky’s girlfriend Maggie Shank-Rutherford) and Tom Brown (as Lieutenant Rovacs, Mr. Lucky’s

DVD Review: "Peter Gunn:- The Complete Series" Released By Timeless Video

Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none

By Harvey F. Chartrand

Peter Gunn: The Complete Series is now available for the first time ever as a 12-dvd box set from Timeless Media Group… all 114 episodes, with a running time of over 58 hours.

Peter Gunn – created and produced by Blake Edwards – ran for three seasons – from 1958 to 1961. This classic detective show was a delightful blend of film noir and fifties cool, featuring a modern jazz score by Henry Mancini (a bonus CD of the soundtrack is included in the set), outbreaks of the old ultra-violence, a gallery of eccentric and sleazy characters (usually informants, gangsters and Beat Generation bohemians), and great acting by series leads Craig Stevens (as Gunn), Lola Albright (as his squeeze, sultry nightclub singer Edie Hart) and Herschel Bernardi (as Gunn’s friend and competitor Lieutenant Jacoby, who seems to work all by himself 24 hours a day
