Here are links to some reviews I’ve posted at my classic movies blog that might also be of interest to readers of this blog.
First up are several heist/caper movies:
The League of Gentlemen (1960), one of the very first of the modern style of cynical tongue-in-cheek heist films.
Ocean’s Eleven (1960), the first of the great American caper films (and also the ultimate Rat Pack movie).
Gambit (1966), a sparkling lighthearted but very clever heist movie with Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine.
Also a couple of interesting spy films:
Ring of Spies (1964), a nice little low-key British movie based on a real-life spy ring.
Bulldog Drummond Comes Back (1937), one of the best (and most stylish) of the 30s Bulldog Drummond films.
And a fine old-fashioned adventure romp:
Timbuktu (1958), directed by the great Jacques Tourneur and starring Victor Mature and Yvonne de Carlo.
