Brainwashing and 1960s supercomputers. Who doesn't like those things? This time around, years after looking at the second Harry Palmer movie, Funeral In Berlin, I take a look at the first and third of the series.: The Ipcresss File (1965) and Billion Dollar Brain (great title- 1967) starring Michael Caine. Working class spy, gourmet, treated like shit by his upper-class bosses, Harry Palmer is the everyman secret agent.

For this one, I look at Burt Lancaster's first swashbuckling movie, the Jacques Tourneur directed The Flame and The Arrow also starring Virginia Mayo and Nick Cravat, then we go to film noir territory for Joseph Losey's The Prowler starring Van Heflin and Evelyn Keyes. Both good movies in their own way, but very different.

This time it's glorious technicolor, breathtaking cinemascope and stereophonic sound with Ernst Lubitsch's 1939 comedy of politics and manners, Ninotschka starring Greta Garbo and Melvin Douglas and then the musical remake of it, 1957's Silk Stockings starring Fred Astaire, Cyd Charisse and Peter Lorre.

It's time to look at autobiographical movies and two of the best are Federico Fellini's 1963 masterwork Otto E Mezzo, (8 1/2) starring Marcello Mastroianni, Claudia Cardinale and Sandra Milo. and Bob Fosse's 1979 musical autobiopic All That Jazz starring Roy Schneider, Jessica Lange, Anne Reinking and Leland Palmer.

So we go from Rome to Broadway looking at movies that are about their directors.

Just for a change I've decided to do two French films together and both feature murdering women. First off there is the 1968 Francoise Truffaut adaptation of Cornell Woolrich's novel The Bride Wore Black starring Jeanne Moreau then we go right to 1990 for the cinema de look action classic, Nikita (a.k.a. La Femme Nikita) starring Anne Parillaud and Jean Reno.
