As a child of the Sixties, the sword and sandal movies (aka peplum) meant a lot to me. Specifically the films of Hercules, himself; none other than Steve Reeves. Interestingly enough, while these movies were made to get people out of their houses and into the theatres, here in the US in the early Sixties they made a bigger splash when they were released to television. I was a little too young to see Steve Reeves¡¯ &quot;Hercules&quot; when it was released in theatres, but when it was released to TV; that's when the avalanche began. For those of us watching the boob tube in the early Sixties, Hercules and his brethren were our heroes. (I always joke that I'm a little messed up because all my heroes were fictional. They were: Hercules (in the form of Steve Reeves), Tarzan (in the form of Gordon Scott), James Bond (Sean Connery) and Elvis (the Elvis of the movies who could sing and dance, won&#160;every fight and got all the girls.)&#160;&#160; The biggest splash came from a show called &quot;The Mighty Sons of Hercules&quot; which we now know as a package of peplum films, but back than they were&#160;our weekly dose of heroic adventure. I did get to see some of these movies at the local neighborhood theatre, like&#160;&quot;Duel of the Titans&quot;, which was a major disappointment due to the fact that it was more or less advertised as a&#160;&quot;duel&quot; between &quot;Hercules&quot;&#160;and &quot;Tarzan&quot; and not the story of Romulus and Remus. (At least here in the states.) <o:p /></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 10pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif; color: #444444; background: white;">The article was also interesting not just for the information provided about the stars of these movies, but for a glimpse of how these movies fared&#160;in the UK. (Interesting that&#160;the film that I first saw on TV as &quot;The Trojan Horse&quot; was known in England as &quot;The Wooden Horse of Troy&quot;!) &#160;Also of interest is that the song from &quot;Hercules Unchained&quot; was a popular success in the UK, but not so&#160;much in the US where the song was not released on vinyl. [Here's some trivia: In Italy, the singing voice of Sylva Koscina was dubbed by Marisa del Frate, one of Italy's most popular performers. The song's title in Italian is &quot;Con te per L'eternita&quot; (&quot;With you for all eternity&quot;) and was a popular hit for Ms. del Frate. The English version, &quot;Evening Star&quot;, was sung by June Valli, who had a few hits in the early fifties and was a member of the cast of the American TV show, &quot;Your Hit Parade&quot; until she was let go from the show, reportedly because the star of the show, Snooky Lanson was very fond of her, much to the annoyance of his wife.] Well, thank you for this little trip down memory lane. Now to get back to the rest of the issue. --Mr. Angel Rivera</span></p> <p><strong>Retro responds: </strong>Angel, thanks so much for your kind words about the &quot;Blood, Sweat and Togas&quot; article. It's really hit a chord with readers who have been clamoring for us to cover this genre since the inception of Cinema Retro. We are grateful to writer Denis Meikle for his superbly researched article which shed a good deal of light on the importance of these long-neglected films, as well as Steve Reeves' brief shining moment as a major international star. Thanks also for the trivia. This has to be the only place in the world where Hercules, Elvis, 007 and Snooky Lanson can be logically tied into the same observations.&#160; </p> Thu, 23 Oct 2014 19:28:30 +0000 /fbe/index.php?/archives/8318-guid.html http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE: LETTERS FROM CINEMA RETRO READERS https://www.google.com//fbe/index.php?/archives/8297-THE-POSTMAN-ALWAYS-RINGS-TWICE-LETTERS-FROM-CINEMA-RETRO-READERS.html Letters from Readers /fbe/index.php?/archives/8297-THE-POSTMAN-ALWAYS-RINGS-TWICE-LETTERS-FROM-CINEMA-RETRO-READERS.html#comments /fbe/wfwcomment.php?cid=8297 0 /fbe/rss.php?version=2.0&type=comments&cid=8297 nospam@example.com (Cinema Retro) <p> <!-- s9ymdb:7327 --><img class="serendipity_image_center" width="450" height="653" src="/fbe/uploads/10thvictim.jpg" /></p> <div style="line-height: 21px; color: #444444; font-family: Calibri; font-size: 15px; background-color: #ffffff;"> <p class="MsoNormal">Hi, Lee.&#160; In his DVD review in issue #30, Adrian Smith writes that&#160;The 10th&#160;Victim&#160;¡°prefigures&#160;Death Race 2000,&#160;Rollerball,&#160;The Running Man&#160;and even&#160;The Hunger Games&#160;in its idea of murder as mass entertainment, and [director/co-writer Elio] Petri deserves to receive some credit.¡±&#160; How about giving some to Robert Sheckley, upon whose 1953 short story ¡°The Seventh Victim¡± the film was based, and whose name is nowhere mentioned?&#160; Sheckley (1928-2005) may not have been in Bradbury¡¯s class, but he was a Hugo and Nebula nominee, named author emeritus by SFWA in 2001.&#160; He even published a tie-in novelization of the film and, in the 1980s, two sequels,&#160;Victim Prime&#160;and&#160;Hunter/Victim.&#160; Sheckley¡¯s work was also adapted into more than a dozen other films and television episodes, the best-known of which¡ªfor better or worse¡ªis probably&#160;Freejack, based on his novel&#160;Immortality Inc.<o:p /></p> <p class="MsoNormal"> <o:p /></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Sheckley" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Sheckley</a></p> <p>- <em>Matthew Bradley&#160;</em> </p> <p><strong>Retro responds:&#160;</strong>&#160;Matthew, far be it from us to deny any writer credit for their achievements. Retro articles for both the magazine and web site are often written under tremendous deadline pressure and/or short notice. The truth is that we get inundated with screener copies to review and it isn't always possible to do extensive research on people whose work may have inspired a certain film unless the source novel was written by some larger-than-life figure whose name and work are instantly known. Our purpose is to review the merits of a specific <em>film</em> and in doing so, it can often be argued that any number of contributors to that film are neglected in almost any DVD review. &#160;What is more inexcusable is failing to mention someone who worked on a movie and whose contribution is key to its success. I've completed many a DVD review and, after it has been posted, realized I neglected to mention such people. Thanks to our readers for &#160;pointing out when some of these occasional lapses in credit occur.&#160;</p> </div> Fri, 17 Oct 2014 16:51:08 +0000 /fbe/index.php?/archives/8297-guid.html http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE: LETTERS FROM READERS https://www.google.com//fbe/index.php?/archives/7928-THE-POSTMAN-ALWAYS-RINGS-TWICE-LETTERS-FROM-READERS.html Letters from Readers /fbe/index.php?/archives/7928-THE-POSTMAN-ALWAYS-RINGS-TWICE-LETTERS-FROM-READERS.html#comments /fbe/wfwcomment.php?cid=7928 0 /fbe/rss.php?version=2.0&type=comments&cid=7928 nospam@example.com (Cinema Retro) <p> </p> <p> <!-- s9ymdb:3682 --><img class="serendipity_image_center" width="500" height="395" src="/fbe/uploads/brothersgrimm.jpg" /></p> <p>Several readers have corrected us on our statement that The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm was never released on home video.

I'm not making the argument that <em>The Adventurers </em>is some great work. However, calling it one of the worst movies of all time seems way over the top. I can well understand why our own contributing writer and editor Sheldon Hall wrote to me to say he felt the film was &quot;a stinker&quot;. Fair enough, but even he isn't making the argument that the film ranks among the ten worst of all time, as apparently the Razzies are claiming. Of course, such judgments are purely subjective and there is no right or wrong answer. However, I find that many people knock big boxoffice disasters based on vague recollections or general critical consensus. Among the other prominent &quot;victims&quot; of this scenario: the Liz and Dick version of <em>Cleopatra, Mutiny on the Bounty, The Alamo </em>(which actually was a financial success but has been deemed a bomb), the Brando remake of <em>Mutiny on the Bounty</em> and of course the infamous <em>Heaven's Gate, </em>which people are finally and justifiably re-evaluating. Some unenlightened critics still cite <em>On Her Majesty's Secret Service </em>as a film that died at the boxoffice, thus resulting in George Lazenby being fired as 007. For the record, although the film grossed far less than the preceding Bonds, its grosses would still have been the envy of most producers- and Lazenby quit the role and was not fired. Again, saner heads have prevailed in more recent years and the film has finally been receiving the praise it has always deserved. Hopefully, some of the aforementioned movies I've cited will, too.&#160;</p> <p>(Readers can send their opinions on any topic to: cinemaretro@hotmail.com Because of the large volume of mail we receive, we can't guarantee the letter will be published, but we do try to answer every E mail.) &#160;</p> </div> Tue, 05 Nov 2013 05:03:20 +0000 /fbe/index.php?/archives/7742-guid.html http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE: LETTERS TO CINEMA RETRO https://www.google.com//fbe/index.php?/archives/6637-THE-POSTMAN-ALWAYS-RINGS-TWICE-LETTERS-TO-CINEMA-RETRO.html Letters from Readers /fbe/index.php?/archives/6637-THE-POSTMAN-ALWAYS-RINGS-TWICE-LETTERS-TO-CINEMA-RETRO.html#comments /fbe/wfwcomment.php?cid=6637 0 /fbe/rss.php?version=2.0&type=comments&cid=6637 nospam@example.com (Cinema Retro) <p class="ecxMsoNormal" style="line-height: 17px; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 1.35em; margin-left: 0px; color: #2a2a2a; font-family: 'Segoe UI', Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif; background-color: #ffffff; "><span lang="EN-US" style="font-family: Helvetica; ">Hi Lee,</span></p> <p class="ecxMsoNormal" style="line-height: 17px; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 1.35em; margin-left: 0px; color: #2a2a2a; font-family: 'Segoe UI', Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif; background-color: #ffffff; "><span lang="EN-US" style="font-family: Helvetica; ">Your recent piece on inept screenings of old movies reminded me of a couple of horrific screenings I have been to.</span></p> <p class="ecxMsoNormal" style="line-height: 17px; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 1.35em; margin-left: 0px; color: #2a2a2a; font-family: 'Segoe UI', Tahoma, Verdana, Arial, sans-serif; background-color: #ffffff; ">I once saw The Third Man where the projectionist couldn't understand the Academy ratio of the film so expanded the picture so it filled the width of the screen.

You'll be happy to know that we're all <em>Poseidon </em>fans here at Cinema Retro and although we won't have a special issue dedicated to the film, we are already working on major coverage for later this year. We've got some super images for the issue and some rarities including the <em>Poseidon Adventure </em>Viewmaster set. We're glad it's due out on Blu-ray- should look magnificent.&#160; Can't wait to hear Ernie Borgnine scream &quot;My Linda!&quot; in hi def format! - <em>Lee Pfeiffer</em> <br /></p> Thu, 01 Mar 2012

All of the coverage on Cinerama is wonderful! <em>Dark of the Sun</em> is a knockout. You all just keep getting better and better. Keep up the great work. You now have another milestone issue to improve upon. Thank you!</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 10pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: &quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;"><span> </span></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 10pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: &quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;">Bill Shaffer</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 10pt; line-height: 115%; font-family: &quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;">Tecumseh, Kansas</span></p> <p><strong>Retro responds: </strong>Bill, thanks so much. We take pride in the fact that we're probably the only film magazine in the world to devote so much time and attention to an otherwise neglected gem like <em>Dark of the Sun. </em>It's proven to be one of our most popular articles ever, an indication that the general public knows a lot more about the real value of certain films than some of those &quot;historians&quot; who think a movie only matters if it has sub-titles. We believe we've fulfilled our initial goal of providing in-depth coverage of movies that are often neglected by the traditional critical establishment, though I have to say any number of prominent critics do contact us to tell us they agree with our sentiments about some of these titles. Returning to <em>Dark of the Sun </em>specifically, kudos are in order for writer Howard Hughes for providing such fascinating insights into the movie. I should mention that Dave Worrall's painstakingly-researched sidebar addressing rumors of &quot;uncut prints&quot; of the film has elicited numerous responses from readers. Some claim they recall seeing specific scenes in British prints in remote cinemas back in 1968. However, we have not been able to verify any of this. In England, the board of censors must give approval for any final cut to be released. The notion that a film company would risk severe financial and legal penalties to smuggle a &quot;rogue print&quot; of a movie to a rural cinema defies credulity. We believe that many people read the source novel decades ago and believe they saw some additional graphic sequences from the book in the film, as well. Worrall's research proved that there were sequences shot for the movie and excised <em>before</em> it was released. However, we still have no conclusive proof that any print other than that shown in the majority of cinemas ever existed. Sometimes movie fan's minds play tricks on them and they believe they saw sequences that never existed. I will point out an analogy. Back in the 1950s, Groucho Marx hosted the TV game show <em>You Bet Your Life. </em>In one famous instance, Groucho interviewed a man who said he had a very large family. Groucho asked him why he had so many children. &quot;I like kids&quot;, the man said. To which, Groucho replied, &quot;I like a good cigar, but even I take it out once in a while!&quot; Countless people believe to this day that they saw that broadcast and embellish their tales with recollections of how shocked everyone was that such a sexually provocative remark could be telecast during that era. In fact, it wasn't. Groucho did indeed make that wisecrack, but the only people who actually heard it were those in the studio audience. It was never broadcast, yet it became such an urban legend that people to this day can specifically remember seeing it on TV. Such may be the case with the much-rumored, never-proven &quot;uncut&quot; prints of <em>Dark of the Sun. </em></p> <p><strong>To order issue #22 of Cinema Retro featuring <em>Dark of the Sun, </em>see our back issues section or <a href="http://www.ebay.com/itm/CINEMA-RETRO-ISSUE-22-DARK-SUN-DEEP-END-CINERAMA-KRAKATOA-EAST-JAVA-/200703075713?pt=Magazines&amp;hash=item2ebad5e581">click here</a> to order from Ebay. </strong><br /></p> <pre></pre> <p> </p> Sun, 12 Feb 2012 02:14:18 +0000 /fbe/index.php?/archives/6544-guid.html http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE: LETTERS TO CINEMA RETRO https://www.google.com//fbe/index.php?/archives/6509-THE-POSTMAN-ALWAYS-RINGS-TWICE-LETTERS-TO-CINEMA-RETRO.html Letters from Readers /fbe/index.php?/archives/6509-THE-POSTMAN-ALWAYS-RINGS-TWICE-LETTERS-TO-CINEMA-RETRO.html#comments /fbe/wfwcomment.php?cid=6509 0 /fbe/rss.php?version=2.0&type=comments&cid=6509 nospam@example.com (Cinema Retro) <div style="font-size: 10pt; color: #000000; direction: ltr; font-family: Tahoma;"> <p> <!-- s9ymdb:1450 --><img height="358" width="450" src="/fbe/uploads/toraart3FINAL.jpg" class="serendipity_image_center" /></p> <p>Dear Mr Pfeiffer, <br /></p> <p>I'll have to disagree with a major point about your review of 'Tora Tora Tora'; namely the Zanucks refused to use major stars.&#160; The Zanucks and the unknown but influential Elmo Williams were stung by the critics going after 'The Longest Day' because of all the big stars. Zanuck Sr had to fill 'The Longest Day' full of major stars to guarantee big box office for the shareholders for the increasing budget of TLD.&#160; I read he nearly was going to drop the project until United Artists made a large scale offer for the rights to the film.&#160; Mr Z realised that if UA was going to pay a huge amount the film would gain at least twice that at the box office and went back to it. <br /></p> <p>Instead Tora used experienced character actors, many very well known (Joseph Cotton, James Whitmore etc).&#160; I had recently researched the film prior to screening it at our WEA film society. <br /></p> <p>Your point about the defeat is well taken; it's interesting that the Bruckheimer &#160;'Pearl Harbor' film featured a triumphant revenge Doolittle Raid and started out with action of the Battle of Britain.</p> <p> </p> <p>James Peter Young, <br /></p> <p>Sydney</p> <p><strong>Retro Responds: </strong>James, we've also done a great deal of research on <em>Tora! </em>as part of our book <em>The Great Fox War Movies </em>. There is no doubt that Fox's official story is that the actors were chosen because of their talents and physical characteristics. However, the new Blu-ray edition makes the point that a major factor was the amount of money that the film was going to cost at a time when the studio's finances were shaky. Even Richard Zanuck admits he was less-than-enthused to take on this &quot;dream project&quot; for his father Darryl and producer Elmo Williams. I find it a bit hard to believe that Zanuck would have been apologetic about the use of major stars in <em>The Longest Day. </em>Unlike George Stevens' star-packed <em>The Greatest Story Ever Told, The Longest Day </em>was an enormous success with both critics and the public. Reviewers generally praised Zanuck's&#160; use of major stars as opposed to Stevens, who used them as stunt casting. Additionally, <em>The Longest Day </em>was a major boxoffice hit and was nominated for a number of key Oscars. So it seems hard to believe that Zanuck would have been sensitive about any aspect of that film. I think that, faced with skyrocketing pre-production costs, Zanuck and Williams realized that the addition of major stars would have sent the budget into the stratosphere at a time when the&#160; studio was skeptical about the project itself. The film was supposed to have gone into production in 1966 but costly delays added three years to the schedule. I guess we'll never know the definitive answer, but these are our theories. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and opinions about a very under-rated film. <br /></p> </div> Mon, 30 Jan 2012 23:52:00 +0000 /fbe/index.php?/archives/6509-guid.html

style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: &quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;">I don't care if Ben Whishaw is considered one of the best young English actors of his generation; he is all wrong for the part of Q precisely because he is too young and handsome. I'm not expecting a clone of Desmond Llewelyn or John Cleese or Alec McCowen to reprise the role of Bond's sarcastic old gadget provider in <em>Skyfall</em>, but Whishaw's delicate features and tousled hair are more suited to decadent poets and rock and roll stars (you may remember his young Keith Richards in STONED/2005). Whishaw would also make an excellent Dr. Who. (I think 70-year-old Jon Finch ¨C once considered to play James Bond ¨C would have been an interesting choice for Q.) I have a bad feeling about Whishaw's taking on the role. Back in 1999, the luscious 28-year-old model Denise Richards was cast as a nuclear scientist in THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH, starring Pierce Brosnan as Bond. Sex bomb Richards (fresh from her success in STARSHIP TROOPERS) was so miscast as &quot;Dr. Christmas Jones&quot; that her scenes elicited laughter... The part of Q requires a certain amount of gravitas that 31-year-old Whishaw <span class="ecxapple-style-span"><span style="color: #080808; background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% white;">at present is rather</span></span><span class="ecxapple-converted-space"><span style="color: #080808; background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% white;"> </span></span><em><span style="font-family: &quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;; color: #080808; background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% white; font-style: normal;">lacking</span></em><span class="ecxapple-converted-space"><span style="color: #080808; background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% white;"> </span></span><span class="ecxapple-style-span"><span style="color: #080808; background: none repeat scroll 0% 0% white;">in</span></span>.</span></p> <p>- Harvey Chartrand</p> <p> <strong>Retro responds: </strong>Judging by the general reaction across the board among Bond fans, most seem to be siding with your point-of-view. To your point, I think it would be a mistake to present the character of Q as a loveable eccentric. That vision of the role is indelibly the domain of the beloved Desmond Llewelyn. Although I have my concerns, history has taught us not to jump to conclusions about casting decisions in Bond movies. The notion of Denise Richards playing a scientist and Tanya Roberts playing a geologist seemed to be laughable on the surface-- and those fears proved to be well-founded. On the other hand, right up to the night of the royal premiere of <em>Casino Royale </em>you would be hard-pressed to find anyone enthused about the chances of Daniel Craig making a good James Bond. There were even web sites entirely dedicated to predicting disaster due to his casting. Not many people are making that argument today. As for Whishaw, one must remember that Eon are continuing to reinvent the franchise from the ground up. Thus, any preconceived notion of the character of Q has to be relegated to history. There are some serious and enormously talented people working on <em>Skyfall - </em>and those in the know who have seen the script say its sensational. So let's reserve judgment until we see how creatively Whishaw's talents are utilized. - <em>Lee Pfeiffer</em><br /></p> <p> </p> Fri, 02 Dec 2011 23:57:10 +0000 /fbe/index.php?/archives/6401-guid.html

<span> </span><br /> I've just read your <a href="/fbe/index.php?/archives/6387-DVD-REVIEW-THE-WHITE-BUS-AKA-RED,-WHITE-AND-ZERO-1967,-EARLY-LINDSAY-ANDERSON-FILM.html">online review</a> of Red, White and Zero and thought I'd clear up some of the mysteries surrounding MGM's DVD release before someone else does! The title given to the DVD is in fact the intended title of the three-part omnibus film you mention, which seems never to have been shown commercially in its complete form, though both other parts were in fact completed and still exist. The White Bus is the correct and, to the best of my knowledge, only release title of Lindsay Anderson's contribution; the composite title was never used.<br /> <span> </span><br /> Tony Richardson's episode was called Red and Blue and starred Vanessa Redgrave and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. (!) It's a short romantic musical, seemingly influenced (like much of Richardson's 1960s work) by the French New Wave and especially Jacques Demy. It was the supporting featurette to The Graduate when the latter (released by United Artists in the UK, not Embassy) opened at the London Pavilion in 1968, but public complaints caused it to be pulled before the main feature had completed its run. A slightly faded colour print exists in the BFI Archive and I have shown it myself at the Showroom in Sheffield, which may have been one of its very few commercial screenings.<br /> <span> </span><br /> The third and shortest segment of the omnibus film is Ride of the Valkyrie which stars - you guessed it - Zero Mostel as an opera singer involved in a &quot;madcap&quot; chase to the tune of - you guessed it again - &quot;Ride of the Valkyries&quot;. I'm not aware of its having had a commercial release in the UK (though IMDb indicates a December 1979 screening in the US), but I certainly remember it being shown on TV here in the 1970s. </span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt; line-height: normal;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: &quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;">For the record, Ride of the Valkyrie was directed (badly) by Peter Brook. Red and Blue is quite favorably reviewed in the October 1968 issue of Films and Filming. The September issue indicates is was meant to support The Graduate on general release, but it is omitted from subsequent listings. I assume that after its disastrous London engagement it was shelved altogether. <br /> <span> </span><br /> MGM could easily have performed a public service by putting the three films together for the first time on home video if someone there had known what they were doing. But as I recall all three were shown together at a conference I attended at the University of Stirling a few years ago, the location of the Lindsay Anderson Archive; the screening venue was the Macrobert Arts Centre on the university campus. So the full version has actually been shown, if only to a specialised academic audience. I can see why UA didn't want to release it!<br /> <span> </span><br /> Best regards,</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt; line-height: normal;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: &quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;"><br /> Sheldon Hall </span></p> <p><strong>RETRO RESPONDS: </strong>Ah, Sheldon- I should have known that a Cinema Retro contributor would hold they keys to this mystery. This minor film has generated a lot of interest among our readers, thus they'll be happy to know how Redgrave and Mostel came to be associated with the original errant packaging by MGM. To be fair to the studio, there is no evidence that the packaging was ever released. I think the photo in question in my review just pertains to an early prototype done for marketing purposes. Apparently, the error was caught in time as the screener we received has correct packaging. As for releasing the entire film, let's just say that the right people are reading this so perhaps they will. It might be, however, that the master prints are in poor condition. Studios are reluctant to sink substantial money into restoring films that have limited financial prospects. Although I'm not a fan of The White Bus, I do appreciate the fact that MGM has put it out. It's an interesting experiment by a man who would become a respected director.&#160;</p> <p> (Sheldon Hall teaches film studies at the University of Sheffield and is the author of numerous books about the cinema.) </p> <p><strong>Update: </strong>Reader Dave Williams advises that <em>The White Bus </em>is also available for streaming through Netflix. <br /></p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt; line-height: normal;"><span style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: &quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;"><br /></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family: &quot;Verdana&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;;"> </span></p> <pre></pre> Tue, 29 Nov 2011 21:53:25 +0000 /fbe/index.php?/archives/6397-guid.html http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE: LETTERS TO CINEMA RETRO https://www.google.com//fbe/index.php?/archives/6364-THE-POSTMAN-ALWAYS-RINGS-TWICE-LETTERS-TO-CINEMA-RETRO.html Letters from Readers /fbe/index.php?/archives/6364-THE-POSTMAN-ALWAYS-RINGS-TWICE-LETTERS-TO-CINEMA-RETRO.html#comments /fbe/wfwcomment.php?cid=6364 0 /fbe/rss.php?version=2.0&type=comments&cid=6364 nospam@example.com (Cinema Retro) <p><!-- s9ymdb:3748 --><img width="254" height="385" src="/fbe/uploads/Dark_of_the_Sun.jpg" class="serendipity_image_center" /> </p> <div> <p>Excited to hear about your 8-page feature on &quot;Dark of the Sun&quot;. Earlier this year, I finally got a re-mastered&#160;DVD through Warner Bros Archives.&#160;It's a beautiful print (unfortunately no special features) and the film holds up remarkably well. It's gratifying to see &#160;one of the best action films ever get some long-overdue recognition. As I'm sure you know, it's a &quot;guilty pleasure&quot; of both Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino (part of the reason Tarantino cast Rod Taylor as Churchill in &quot;Inglorious Basterds&quot;.) As for &quot;The White Buffalo&quot;, I obviously liked the film better than you did. I never really thought of it as &quot;horror&quot; movie-western hybrid, but I was struck by its mythic, haunting ambiance. One of the many things I admired about it was the authentic-sounding period dialogue. How many films use words like &quot;flummery&quot;?</p> </div> <div> </div> <div> <p>Ray Cunneff</p> <p><strong>Retro Responds: </strong>Thanks, Ray...We're probably the only magazine on the planet that would feature a film like <em>Dark of the Sun </em>in such detail, but the movie is a true gem. I totally agree that it stands up well over time and in fact is far superior to just about every action movie made today. Re: <em>The White Buffalo, </em>I do think the film is a failure, but I will concede at least it's an original and ambitious failure. However, I think in its attempt to be highbrow, it comes across as somewhat pretentious. The film is ultimately undone by an uneven script and some distractingly cheesy special effects. However, before anyone puts much stock in my opinions, I also consider <em>The Ghost and Mr. Chicken </em>to be a comedy classic. - <em>Lee Pfeiffer</em></p> <p><em></em><strong>(<em>Dark of the Sun </em>will be featured in Cinema Retro issue #22 in a major article by contributor Howard Hughes.) </strong><br /></p> </div> Fri, 18 Nov 2011 11:06:00 +0000 /fbe/index.php?/archives/6364-guid.html

It was just too good to pass up!</p> <p><strong>Retro responds: </strong>Brian, with enemies like you, who needs friends? The sales of our <em>Kelly's </em>issue are far above expectations. The compelling stories behind the making of this movie seem to intrigue even those who don't care for the film itself. - <em>Lee Pfeiffer</em> </p> Sun, 09 Oct 2011 10:30:00 +0000 /fbe/index.php?/archives/6225-guid.html http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/
