"Top fantasy film of any time; featuring Rex Harrison, Gene Tierney."

Zorro, the Gay Blade (1981)
"Tasteless, forced comedy just about killed the Zorro franchise for many years."
"Has attained cult comedy status over last 25 years...due to Chase, Dangerfield, Murray set pieces."
"Quite wonderful in nostalgic, so-bad-it's-good mode. Great baggy tights."

"One of the '50s icons of sci-fi, featuring a giant tarantula on the rampage."
