PRODUCTION NOTE: Cast members Ray Cooney and Tony Hilton also co-wrote the screenplay.

An old geezer recalls some of the antics of the men and women of his western town, more wild and woolly than Tombstone or Dodge City. In this town, no one is a good shot, the women are hungry for new meat, and practical jokers abound. A stranger strolls into town, proving resistant to the mayhem and, after donning some cowboy duds, begins cleaning up that town. This one actually has some decent production values.

1960 directed by Anton Giulio Majano starring Alberto Lupo, Susanne Loret, Sergio Fantoni, Franca Parisi, Roberto Bertea, Andrea Scotti and Ivo Garanni.  A scientist with a dark secret has developed a process for restoring scarred flesh.  Unfortunately, that process requires a “sinister supplement.”  This copy has been sharpened a bit.

Goldilocks and The Three Bares  is a 1963  nudie-cutie  film from the legendary exploitation team of  Herschell Gordon Lewis  and  David F. Friedman . The title has absolutely nothing to do with the famous fable which inspired the title. Appropriately billed as the "first nudist musical" (not to be confused with  The First Nudie Musical , 1976), it has considerably more depth than their prior attempts at this genre.

One of the early color near-nudie films and was re-shown often by, mostly, drive-in theatre owners in need of a quick cash fix. They would hang out the "Adults Only" sign, thereby ensuring that every high school and junior high boy (and more than a few dads) within an hour's drive would storm the gate, and turn on the popcorn machine and then hot-foot it to the night-deposit at the bank.

This print is much sharper and cleaner than the existing IA copies. Another outstanding suspense thriller from Hitchcock's British years. If it isn't as popular as "The 39 Steps" or "The Lady Vanishes," it's probably because it's mounted on a smaller scale than those well-known classics. It also has a plot element some audiences found disturbing. Based on Joseph Conrad's novel, "The Secret Agent." Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. UK release 1936. US release 1937....

A muddled mystery with an equally confused cast that features Hal Skelly as one of the most obnoxious newspaper reporters in Hollywood's long history of portraying obnoxious newspaper reporters. Not in any way related to the radio series and comic book character The Shadow. Four minutes are missing including the title card and opening credits. Written and directed by Arthur Hoert.

An okay circus melodrama starring June Travis. Directed by John H Auer. Released in 1937. Complete print (53 minute 2nd-release edit). NOTE: A nitrate print of the 66 minute original is stored at the UCLA Film & Television Archive. So there might be hope for the future release of a complete version with better video quality.

1954 directed by Byron Haskin starring Robert Newton as Long John and Kit Taylor as Jim Hawkins, with Connie Gilchrist, Lloyd Berrell, Grant Taylor, Rod Taylor and Harvey Adams . When Long John discovers that rival pirate Mendoza has captured a ship that has Jim Hawkins on it, he devises a plan to rescue him.   And of course, to also get some treasure.   Nice Technicolor picture with plenty of “aarghs.”

So what that it has nothing to do with Broadway. So what that the acting is awful and the production values nonexistent (except for Foley FX which consist of a cricket and a car horn). So what that it seems twice as long as it actually is. Because now you have a foolproof way to get rid of unwanted house guests. Just flip on this movie, and watch 'em scatter. A strong contender for the worst movie of all time. Written and directed by Phil Tucker. Released in 1955. a.k.a. "Hollywood...

1938 directed by Sergei Eisenstein.  Soviet-era films depicts the good, noble and heroic Russian prince Alexander Nevsky who led the Russians against an invasion by seedy, Teutonic Knights.  This is the public domain version that was first released on video-tape, with the original, poorly recorded soundtrack of Prokofiev's music and subtitles with stilted language.

A rarity. Surviving extant fragments of the 1926 production based on Ernest Pascal's story "Egypt". Roughly 1/3 of the film missing. Most of the beginning middle and end of the film are present. All of the material is pieced together in the correct chronological order it appeared in the film. This is the final feature directed by Lois Weber. This film stars the legendary silent screen siren Billie Dove.

An adventure serial in 12 chapters that is a mind-boggling mix of new sound footage with footage from the silent serial "The Jungle Goddess." All 12 chapters are strung together in one file, which might make this the longest unintentionally hilarious movie in history. Good luck in getting through all 3 hours and 17 minutes with your reason intact! Directed by Robert F Hill. Released in 1935 (and 1922). runtime 197 minutes. complete print.

Life in an itinerant theatrical troupe. A well-acted and well-produced pre-code drama which touches on infidelity and illegitimacy (by '30s standards). The final scenes might be considered an unintentional prediction of the 1944 Hartford circus tragedy. Directed by Victor Schertzinger. Released in 1933. a.k.a. "The Constant Woman". complete print.

This is the 75 minute TV version of Roger Corman's (and Charles Griffin's) goofy self-parody "Creature from the Haunted Sea." For television, Monte Hellman wrote, produced and directed about 15 minutes of new footage to get the film up to a marketable length including an absurd theme song as performed by the wonderful Betsy Jones-Moreland. These scenes, presumably shot in 16mm, were never intended for theatrical release, but crop to a 16 x 9 aspect ratio (along with the rest of the...

This is a surreal little movie by Billy Wilder's much-less talented older brother, W. Lee Wilder. It was originally released in a 1:85 aspect ratio. This is an attempt to recreate the original aspect ratio using the best public domain print I could find. The 16mm print seemed to be already slightly cropped and a true 1:85 ratio looked too cramped. This version has been blown-up and cropped at about 1:75, not the correct ratio, but much closer to the intended composition. Killers from Space...
