It's all stunts and balloon animals this time. First off, Brian Trenchard-Smith's 1976 stunt extravaganza Deathcheaters starring John Hargreaves and Grant Page, then we move over to 1991 for the Citizen Kane of Alcoholic Clown Movies, Shakes The Clown starring Bobcat Goldthwait and Tom Kenny.

For this one, the shit gets serious. Firstly, Frank Capra's 1939 political comedy Mr Smith Goes To Washington starring James Stewart and Jean Arthur, then we move on 1957 for Sidney Lumet's debut movie, 12 Angry Men starring Henry Fonda, Lee J Cobb and Martin Balsam. Plus there is feedback.

This time it's droll British Eurospy versus French New Wave cum Film Noir. First, it's Hot Enough For June, Ralph Thomas' Eurospy comedy starring Dirk Bogarde and Sylva Koscina with a great supporting cast including Robert Morley and Leon McKern. Then we hit Louis Malle's French crime drama Elevator To The Gallows starring Jeanne Moreau and Maurice Ronet.

For the first Paleo-Cinema of 2018 I look at the 1962 exploitation sleazefest that is Satan In High Heels starring Meg Myles and Grayson Hall, then we go to 1973 Sweden for the compulsively watchable but confronting revenge movie Thriller- A Cruel Picture a.k.a. They Call Her One Eye. Plus, there's feedback

This time I found a Fritz Lang movie I hadn't seen, the WW2 drama, co-written by Berthold Brecht, Hangmen Also Die starring Brian Donlevy and Walter Brennan, then I do my Top 10 movies first watched in 2017.


Have a cool holiday season and a rockin' 2018

Here it is. As agreed with the Patreon subscribers I watched and reviewed Star Wars - The Last Jedi as fairly as I possibly could. There's really nothing else to say except enjoy the holidays.

This time around I explain the funding changes with Podbean, then the interesting stuff. I look at a 1942 American portmanteau film, TALES OF MANHATTAN with an enormous cast of stars and a very interesting concept. From there, to celebrate the legalisation of Same Sex Marriage in this brown, unpleasant land, I look at the 1970 adaptation of Joe Orton's 1964 play, Entertaining Mr. Sloane starring Beryl Reid, Harry Andrews and Peter McEnerey.

This time I break the format and talk about the four days I spent in Sydney last week. Rambling, autobiographical stuff. Thanks for indulging me this time.

This time I'm doing TV with a look at ITC, the company that gave us Danger Man, The Saint, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, The Adventures of Robin Hood and many many other TV action and adventure shows of the 50s, 60s and 70s.
