Director Fritz Lang here turns a run-of-the-mill Second World War espionage tale into a gripping thriller that drips with nail-biting tension and brilliantly evokes the bleak, oppressive atmosphere of the time. Gary Cooper plays the American nuclear research scientist who is seconded to the OSS and sent, in conditions of great danger, to learn the secrets of Germany's atomic bomb programme. In hiding with the Resistance in war-torn, Nazi-occupied Italy, he is put in the care of violently anti-Fascist and embittered Lilli Palmer. Cooper is fine, and Palmer, making her American film debut, looks beautiful and shows an admirable grasp of a complex character. Robert Alda (father of Alan) is third billed as the stalwart American underground organiser.

Having already won a screenwriting Oscar for Battleground (1949), Robert Pirosh here came up with an even more uncompromising insight into the terrifying uncertainty and sudden brutality of frontline life. Never one to shy away from violence, director Don Siegel builds steadily towards the pitiless battle sequences by allowing us to get to know the members of the small unit ordered to overpower a German pillbox, whose only hope of survival is to mislead the Germans into believing they are a much more substantial force. Steve McQueen is overly intense and Bob Newhart's comic monologue a mite ill-judged, but James Coburn and the rest of the cast are superb.


Martian Land- (2015)
11:00 - 12:50 - Thu 22/4/21 - Horror Channel

In the distant future, humans are living on Mars in cities that resemble those once found on Earth, and are protected from the inhospitable Martian atmosphere by dome-like force-fields. When a massive sandstorm breaks through the dome and destroys Mars New York, those in Mars Los Angeles must figure out how to stop the storm before it wipes them out next. Sci-fi drama, starring Alan Pietruszewski, Jennifer Dorogi and Lane Townsend.

The secret of a good disaster movie is to ensure that the victims hardly have chance to draw breath after one crisis, before another follows hot on its heels. Few have subjected the victims to a more sensational "frying-pan-and-fire" scenario than this Rank adventure, in which a plane crash-lands on an island, only for the survivors to discover that it is the site for an imminent atomic test. Considering there is only one outcome, director Guy Green sustains the suspense remarkably well, helped in no small measure by a sound cast led by Richard Attenborough, Pier Angeli and Eddie Constantine.


Gunsmoke- (1953)

This routine western stars Audie Murphy as a gunslinger who has a change of heart when he's hired by a landowner to kill a rancher. The film is nothing special, but it does offer a chance to see Susan Cabot (Sorority Girl, The Wasp Woman) before she became a Roger Corman cult heroine. The use of the Marlene Dietrich song See What the Boys in the Back Room Will Have prompted Universal to remake Destry Rides Again the following year, with Murphy in the James Stewart role. The film has absolutely nothing to do with the famous TV series of the same name, which was shown in the UK as Gun Law.

Stuffy period mystery this is not, as director Guy Ritchie approaches his take on Baker Street's finest in the manner of Lethal Weapon. Though this may rankle with fans of the original Conan Doyle stories, Robert Downey Jr at least brings his undisputed charisma to bear in his portrayal of the legendary detective, even ditching his shirt to show he has brawn as well as brains in a signature Ritchie slow-mo bareknuckle fight. As Watson, Jude Law stands firm in the pair's ongoing verbal sparring match, and the two leads share a mischievous chemistry. A typically sinister Mark Strong impresses, too, as back-from-the-dead villain Lord Blackwood, a killer reputed to be in league with the devil. The views of Victorian London are just as seductive as Downey Jr, who exudes an aura of troubled genius, though that's all the information you're likely to retain, as there's rarely a moment to think between all the fights and explosions.

This is about as original as its title, which irresistibly recalls the Graham Greene-inspired thriller The Green Cockatoo. The budget was clearly tight, and the story of an American cop who solves a case and falls for a pretty English girl while on secondment to Scotland Yard is hardly riveting stuff. Dermot Walsh does his best with some lacklustre material, and John Le Mesurier turns up in a supporting slot, but there's little else here to recommend.

A dark farcical comedy spins out of control in this deliciously brash tale from director Peter Jackson that explores the shockingly unhealthy paranormal bond between two lovers with record-breaking murder in mind. The director of BRAINDEAD and HEAVENLY CREATURES hits exactly the right balance between black comedy and jet-black chills in this cross between CASPER and THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. The result is a ghoulish masterpiece that showcases a dazzling array of computer-generated ghosts and blood-freezing poltergeist activity, with Michael J Fox ingeniously cast against type as a pseudo psychic up to his neck in all the nasty hereafter horror.
