This print is much sharper and cleaner than the existing IA copy, plus it is in the correct aspect ratio. A lavishly produced wartime propaganda epic with an all-star cast.

It’s cowboys vs Indians and brother vs brother in this action-packed B-oater staring Rex Allen and his horse Koko. Leonard Nimoy is featured as a renegade Indian chief. Be advised it also includes a lot of “the only good Indian is a dead Indian” racism. Above average production values. Remake of “The Apache Kid” (1941). IMDB rating 6.2. Directed by William Witney. Released in 1953. Complete print. AKA “Overland Trail Riders”

This complete print is brighter and significantly sharper than the truncated version already here at IA. Bad guys want to blow up the French fleet at Port Said. Mr. Moto would rather they didn't. Urban adventure ensues, along with a side order of comedy relief. Initially released on 20 January 1939. IMDB page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0031678/

“Brain dead” “Delightfully dippy” “Absence of logic” “Reeks of insipidness” (IMDB reviews quotes). The astonishing remake of the jaw-dropping “Cat-Women of the Moon” with juvenile dialog, juvenile delinquents, beauty contest winners and moon Gubmies (see note). The plot and dialog are more ridiculous than the original's. The sets are just as cheesy. The acting is much worse. An entertaining anti-masterpiece that’s bonanza for bad movie aficionados.

This is the original, unedited, full-length version which predates "Metropolis" by three years.

Hoppy goes undercover to catch twin crooks and their gang of cattle rustlers, which gves more screen time to Gabby and Russell. Good cast and good production values.

Here is another drive-in sci fi catastrophy that by comparison makes Ed Wood look like Cecil B DeMille. In case you're interested (and I can't imagine why you would be) it's about alien monsters that devour lots of people head first, most of them girls in miniskirts. The colossal ineptness exhibited in every aspect of this production is breathtaking. Directed by Vic Savage (as A J Nelson) Released in 1964 a.k.a.

A worthy suspense drama in which a British couple’s daughter is kidnapped to prevent their exposure of an assassination plot. The excellent cast includes Peter Lorre’s first appearance in a Hitchcock Film. Remade in 1956. It would make an interesting double feature with Hitch’s “Sabotage.” IMDB rating 6.9.

An early sound-film melodrama of two British families in conflict. Solid cast led by Edmund Gwenn. Filmed before in 1921 as an adaptation of the play by John Galsworthy. In later years Hitchcock said he hadn't wanted to make this film and he'd had little enthusiazm for its production. Adapted and directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Released in 1931.

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....
