God bless Olive for bringing Leo McCarey's 1944 The Bells of St. Mary's to Blu-ray.
It's a bit of an odd bird. As explained by Prof. Emily Corman in one of the supplements, it's a bona fide sequel - but produced via another studio. Going My Way was a Paramount production, released in 1944, a...

The Delinquents, maverick filmmaker Robert Altman's feature film debut, is the ultimate in the kids-gone-bad film genre. Pre-Billy Jack actor Tom Laughlin stars as Scotty, a young man drawn into a potentially deadly friendship when he inadvertently becomes involved with "the wrong crowd."Naiveté...
While I would have preferred the original 1938 cut of Abel Gance's J'Accuse, we have what we have, as delivered by Gaumont and Olive.
We have some extra footage, and some original footage missing, but it serves the purpose, as the many important bits are generally intact. The downside of the...
Fred Zinnemann's High Noon, is one of my favorite films.
Always has been. Always will be.
Photographed in black & white, and self-limited to a running time, equating to real time, it's an excursion into the perfection of our cinema heritage.
One thing has troubled me about it...

Jinxed is an oddball film, if for no other reason that it was directed by Don Siegel, and seems to be the antithesis of at least my concept of a Siegel film.
Generally, at least for me, the film doesn't work. I'd love to know what the original intent of the filmmakers was. The film may be for...
Roger Corman's 1967, The Trip, offers the lesson that drug use can lead to very fast cutting.
It was written by Jack Nicholson (Psych-Out, Ironweed), and stars Peter Fonda (The Wild Angels), Bruce Dern (also The Wild Angels), Susan Strasberg (Psych-Out), and Dennis Hopper (Chattahoochee).
