The only Aldrich film I saw at the cinema was The Longest Yard aka The Mean Machine.
Baby Jane I could only watch once, I'm not a fan of Joan Crawford or Bette Davis.

Sodom and Gommorah I've only ever seen a truncated 90min version on tv in full screen, would love to see it complete and in widescreen, Miklos Rozsa's score was the best thing about it.

Rankings

1)The Dirty Dozen (a 60's favorite)
2)The Longest Yard
3)Vera Cruz
4)Twilights Last Gleaming (where's the dvd?)
5)Too Late the Hero

It's a late 60's taboo-breaking drama about lesbianism that was rather notorious in its time.

Sister George is a TV soap-opera character played by the films star, Beryl Reid. The Sister George character is about to be killed off from the show, much against the wishes of Reid and mostly due to the fact that she's in her sixties and 'unappealing'.

Reid is a boisterous loudmouth, insulting everyone she meets, goes home and takes out her frustrations out on her younger female lover (Susannah York). To make matters worse, one of Reid's female bosses is also a lesbian and sets her sights on seducing Reid's lover.

Melodrama, lesbians, lesbian sex, cutthroat showbiz antics, acidic comedy and brassy old broads! Posted Image Posted Image

The Dirty Dozen - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image1/2
What ever happened to Baby Jane - Posted Image - I hate 'thrillers' that are so retardedly plotted they depend on the 'good' characters having less cognitive ability than your average leaf of lettuce.
