cult movie reviews from my classic movie blog

There's a slight problem with having two movie blogs, one for cult movie reviews and one for classic movies. There are movies that don’t quite fit neatly into either category. Or rather they could easily fit into both categories, so sometimes it's difficult to be sure which blog is most appropriate for posting a review.

So here are a few links to recent reviews I’ve posted on my Classic Movie Ramblings blog which might be of interest to readers of this blog.

First cab off the rank is 55 Days at Peking (1963), an uneven but entertaining adventure epic staring Charlton Heston.

Secondly there’s White Woman (1933), a deliriously overheated and overripe pre-code jungle melodrama with Charles Laughton going completely over-the-top. Also stars Carole Lombard. Lots of fun!

Then there’s British Intelligence (1940), a fairly nifty little spy thriller set in the First World War and starring Boris Karloff.

Plus the slightly disappointing but visually interesting Steve McQueen thriller The Thomas Crown Affair (1968)

And lastly Frank Capra’s fantasy epic Lost Horizon (1937).
