YEAR: 1958

RATING: N/R
ASPECT RATIO: 1.78:1 Aspect Ratio; B&W
AUDIO: MONO


The sleepy little lighthouse community of Piedras Blancas has a big problem when bodies begin piling up (thankfully there’s the ice room at Kochek’s Store for meats and groceries) and a scale from a thought-to-be-extinct prehistoric amphibian is found nearby. Could this be the work of … The Monster of Piedras Blancas?

For a town photographed in black & white, Piedras Blancas is teeming with colorful characters. There’s Sturges (John Harmon, Monsieur Verdoux), the lighthouse keeper who makes it a ritual to leave food out near a secluded beach cave for, well, something; Lucy (Jeanne Carmen, Born Reckless), Sturges' zaftig daughter, a free thinker who clearly doesn’t pay attention to daddy's warnings about skinny dipping near the cave; Lucy’s boyfriend Fred (Don Sullivan, The Giant Gila Monster), a young man more than willing to keep an eye on Lucy; and the dedicated man of science Dr. Sam Jorgensen (Les Tremayne, The Fortune Cookie) who’s out to solve the mysterious murders. It will become painfully obvious to Sturges (and the unfortunate inhabitants of Piedras Blancas): never miss a feeding! The Monster of Piedras Blancas, directed by Irvin Berwick (Malibu High), co-stars Forrest Lewis (All That Heaven Allows), Frank Arvidson (The 7th Commandment) and Wayne Berwick (The Naked Monster) and is photographed by Philip Lathrop, two-time Academy Award nominee for Best Cinematography (The Americanization of Emily, Earthquake).

Cecil B. DeMille’s silent era drama, The Captive, which might have been lost to posterity, was located in the Paramount Pictures vaults and restored (featuring a newly composed score) for future generations to enjoy.


YEAR: 1915
GENRE: DRAMA
LANGUAGE: ENGLISH Intertitles
LABEL: OLIVE FILMS
TOTAL RUNNING TIME: 50 mins
RATING: N/R
ASPECT RATIO: 1.33:1 Aspect Ratio; B&W
AUDIO: MONO


Cecil B. DeMille’s thought-to-be-lost 1915 silent film The Captive, is a found treasure. Set during the Balkan Wars, The Captive tells the story of Sonia (Blanche Sweet, The Woman in White), a young woman living in Montenegro and left to care for her younger brother Milos (Gerald Ward, The Warrens of Virginia) and the family farm when older brother Marko (Page Peters, Davy Crockett) goes off to battle. Unable to handle the day-to-day tasks following her brother’s tragic death, help comes in the form of Mahmud Hassan (House Peters, Prisoners of the Storm) a captured Turk nobleman now a prisoner of war. Tasked with helping Sonia, their initial frosty relationship soon melts into love. As the war rages on Sonia, Mahmud and Milos will face near-insurmountable obstacles in their quest for a better life amidst the hell of war.

Directed by Cecil B. DeMille (The Ten Commandments, The Buccaneer) from a screenplay written by DeMille and Jeanie Macpherson (based on her play), the wartime romantic drama The Captive features supporting performances by Jeanie Macpherson (The Girl of the Golden West), Theodore Roberts (The Ten Commandments), William Elmer (The Devil and Miss Jones) and features a musical score newly composed by Lucy Duke.

Directed by
JERRY BELSON
(Surrender, TV’s The Odd Couple, TV’s Mary Tyler Moore)

Of the more than thirty screen adaptations of the Robert Louis Stevenson tale, the Jerry Belson directed Jekyll and Hyde … Together Again is closest in spirit to The Nutty Professor, a Jekyll and Hyde inspired tale directed by and starring another Jerry … Jerry Lewis.


YEAR: 1982
GENRE: COMEDY
LANGUAGE: ENGLISH (with optional English subtitles)
LABEL: OLIVE FILMS
TOTAL RUNNING TIME: 87 mins
RATING: R
ASPECT RATIO: 1.78:1 Aspect Ratio; COLOR
AUDIO: MONO


The Robert Louis Stevenson classic is turned on its ear, or in this case its funny bone, in the Jerry Belson (TV’s The Odd Couple) directed Jekyll and Hyde … Together Again. While researching a drug that would make surgeries obsolete, Dr. Daniel Jekyll (Mark Blankfield, Robin Hood: Men in Tights) inadvertently discovers a substance that unleashes the animal that lives inside every man. Using himself as a guinea pig, Jekyll reverts from his shy, self-effacing, serious self to the hyper-sexual, party-‘till-you-drop alter ego, Mr. Hyde.

Jekyll and Hyde … Together Again, written for the screen by Monica Johnson, Harvey Miller, Jerry Belson and Michael Leeson, co-stars Bess Armstrong (High Road to China) as Mary, Jekyll’s loving fiancée; Krista Errickson (Little Darlings) as Ivy, Hyde’s lusty paramour; and Tim Thomerson (Near Dark) as Jekyll’s smarmy colleague Dr. Knute Lanyon.

A female homage to The Dirty Dozen, Mankillersfeatures a rag tag group of bottom feeders —murderers, thieves and other assorted miscreants — who, unless they coalesce into a lean, mean fighting machine to stop a rogue agent and the drug cartel that employs him, have the option of a prison cell or the electric chair. It’s wall-to-wall action and adventure in Mankillers.

Directed and written by David A. Prior (Deadly Prey, Killer Workout), Mankillers stars Edd Byrnes (TV’s 77 Sunset Strip), Gail Fisher (TV’s Mannix), Edy Williams (The Naked Kiss), Lynda Aldon (Doctor Detroit), William Zipp (Deadly Prey), Christine Lunde (The Masque of the Red Death) and Suzanne Tegmann (Death Chase).

I'm probably in for Yours, Mine and Ours - been wanting to watch that lately, I can probably hold out until the new Blu-ray comes out. Cool news.
