new links; Tuesday's Overlooked Films and/or Other A/V

The Pit and the Pendulum
Below: This week's slightly tardy, snowbound set of links to reviews and citations this week, and apologies for that delay. Thanks, as always, folks...and please let me know if I've missed your or someone else's Overlooked post in comments. For some reason, Matt Helm movies caught more than one eye/keyboard this week, along with at least two reviews of new documentary Rewind This! and, less probably, Phone Call from a Stranger...along with such effective, small-scale noirs as The Phenix City Story and Kansas City Confidential (and...Dick Tracy...)

Just posted mine, Todd. Are we on one wavelength or not? Ha.

At very least, moving at similar speed on this snowy day! Thanks, Yvette.

Just putting a new one, Todd. 15 minutes or so.

Todd Mason said...

Thank you, Frank, and I'll be here, Juri...further thanks.

Ron Scheer said...

Enjoyed the post on PEYTON PLACE. A trip down memory lane.

Todd Mason said...

It's a series I've managed to miss altogether over the years, but I am interested by Stephen's contention that Paul Monash made sure it was a cut above simple soap.

Prashant C. Trikannad said...
