    Yes it is a kids movie. But it is one of the better Disney offerings from that period. We enjoyed it.

    I got to review Escape to Witch Mountain not too long ago. That review is here.

    As for me, I'll probably be watching Molly's Game today.

    The Son of the Sheik (Kino BD) Valentino's follow-up to The Sheik. A superior film, though the print is much battered, and Valentino's acting is quite good. Unfortunately, this proved to be his final film before his untimely death.
    Ronin (Arrow BD) Still an exciting thriller from Frankenheimer.
    The World's Most Beautiful Swindlers (Olive BD) A portmanteau film with Polanski's segment missing (per his request). Beautiful transfer of an uneven film. Godard's segment, unfortunately the final one, is excruciating.

    I still like this one, though it is admittedly pretty silly. The sequel, In Like Flint, is basically a straight-up comedy, and is enjoyable enough when viewed through that lens. The Flint films and the Matt Helm films, plus most of the spy craze 007 knock-offs, just show how wonderful those 60s EON Bond flicks really were (and are.)

    I really do envy your open schedule, Matt! I'm so beat when I get home (now that the semester is in full swing) that it's all I can do to watch one hour of something before hitting the sack. Luckily, it's only another 9 weeks or so to go before the summer break...

    Since I got my projector I've have been amazed at how many movies get so much better with the big screen. This was one of them. The large image coupled with great surround sound made this a treat to watch. (I still like the tv show better though :P but perhaps for different reasons)

    I really like this film, caught it in the theater when it first came out and have seen it a few more times since. I wish it had done better at the box office, so we could have gotten a sequel. This is the best performance I've seen from Henry Cavill, he's a very stylish and suave Napoleon Solo. My only gripe with the film is that they didn't utilize the terrific original theme from the TV series, though the soundtrack itself is quite good.

    Watched both The Glass Key and The Blue Dahlia in their Arrow Zone B releases. Such good films! I still wish someone would release the 1935 version of The Glass Key which I've only seen once. I remember liking it very, very much.

    How well I remember those days when I was juggling a full-time job, a part-time job, and doing community theater at the same time. Looking back now, I don't know HOW I juggled all those balls in the air, but I WAS younger.

    When I got the region B Blu-rays, I devoured them quickly as these are two of my very favorite mysteries from the 1940s.

    Thank you very much as I did watch that stream tonight on Dailymotion. A poor stream quality-wise, but it served its purpose as I viewed the 1935 film version of "The Glass Key" a long time ago, I'm talking about decades long and I couldn't remember the film to compare it to the 1942 film version. I must say the 1942 film version is a better film. I also liked the script and cast changes in the 1942 film in comparison to the 1935 film. I did notice a young Ann Sheridan playing the nurse to George Raft.

    Yesterday I started with:
    The Gentle Sex (TCM) A 1943 Leslie Howard production profiling 7 women who join the British armed forces during WWII. The sympathetic portrayal of a (I think) lesbian is miles ahead of its time. A morale booster with a very young Joan Greenwood (sigh!) and one of my favorite British thespians, Rosamund John (thanks, Bill Everson!).
    The Falcon Strikes Back (TCM app) An early and entertaining Edward Dmytryk programmer, this one starring Tom Conway.
    Why Be Good? (WA DVD) 1929 silent with original music and sound effects Vitaphone soundtrack. Starring the irrepressible Colleen Moore and Neir Hamilton. Directed by William Seiter. A charming relic of the Jazz Age.
    The Sower (Film Movement DVD) French film from 2017, directed by Marine Francen, shot in 1.33 ratio. Women without men in a remote French village c. 1851. A lone man arrives and they decide he has to be shared.
    Irma Vep (Arrow Academy BD Zone B) From Olivier Assayas, with Maggie Cheung and Jean-Pierre Leaud. A film about making a remake of Feuillade's Les Vampires. And about Maggie Cheung as Maggie Cheung. Droll and fascinating.
