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.

This time we open in 18th Century California and then we open in Venice, we next play Verona and on to Cremona. From the 1940 swashbuckler The Mark Of Zorro starring Tyrone Power, linda Darnell and Basil Rathbone we go on to one of the most silly and joyous musical adaptations of Shakespeare, Kiss Me Kate from 1953 starring Howard Keel, Kathryn Grayson and Ann Miller.

Number 67 has gone missing, so here's a reup of it.


Fpr 219 I look at a wildly popular adventure film from 1977  - The Deep, starring Robert Shaw, Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset. We then go to 1972 for the Bruce Lee martial arts film Fist Of Fury, which I compare to Death Wish. I also explain why.

For this one, I look at a couple of classic movie comedies that went on to spin-off crazily successful American TV series. First we have Neil Simon's The Odd Couple starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau in the second of their ten collaborations. We then move on to the 1970 Robert Altman film MASH starring Donald Sutherland and Elliot Gould. New York slobs and South Korean Army surgeons.

This time around it's film noir versus movie mashup with my first viewing of the classic 1950 noir caper thriller The Asphalt Jungle starring Sterling Hayden, Sam Jaffe and Jean Hagen, then we go to one of the first movie mashups in history, Joe Dante's 1968 compilation Movie Orgy which combines old science fiction movies from the 1950s with cartoons, TV shows, political footage and PSAs to create a meta-narrative about the 1960s.

This time around, two films from the 1970s. We start with Ivan Dixon's 1973 movie about a black militant who joins the CIA, The Spook Who Sat By The Door, then we move on to Clint Eastwood's directorial debut, Play Misty For Me starring Eastwood, Jessica Walter and Donna Mills.

This time it's two very 1960s films. The semi-successful satire on beach movies and youth culture - 1966's Lord Love A Duck starring Roddy McDowell, Lola Albright and Tuesday Weld and then to the epic 1960 story of the formation of the state of Israel, Exodus starring Paul Newman, Eva Marie Saint and Lee J. Cobb.
