  • The Lemon Drop Kid (1951)

    Kino Lorber Studio Classics recently released five classic Bob Hope comedies on Blu-ray — My Favorite Brunette, Road to Rio, The Lemon Drop Kid, Road to Bali, and Son of Paleface. While I consider The Lemon Drop Kid the least of these films, it seems appropriate to review that title...

    Between 1931 and 1972, Georges Simenon wrote 75 mystery novels and 28 short stories centered around a gruff, introspective, pipe-smoking, Parisian police inspector that he dubbed Jules Maigret.  Not only were the books tremendously popular; Simenon soon saw the potential to extend the character into other media.  Merely one...

    Return with me now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, when cinematic thrills came in action-packed, weekly installments.  In the first half of the 20th Century, movie theaters would lure young audiences back for weekly Saturday matinées, no matter what feature film was being unspooled, by including a serial...

  • Seven Blood-Stained Orchids Blu-ray

    Greetings, giallo junkies, Put on your black gloves, and pour yourself a glass of J&B.  Code Red has dated and detailed their previously announced Blu-ray release of Umberto Lenzi’s Seven Blood-Stained Orchids (1972).
