The Unknown Marx Brothers

Or: I Haven't Had Quite Enough Of The Smiles These Guys Regularly Deal Out. Although disguised as a documentary about the boys it's really no more than an opportunity to spend just a little more time in their presence. Does it seem as if they are together some wonderful and grandiose gift from some supernatural higher power that we are collectively unworthy of, or it that just me?

Lady of Burlesque

Although Babs had her some little personal experience in the burlesque game, and though she gives it her "that's show business!" all here (there's one scene she dances onstage that'd play any modern day medium ya got) she cannot save this "backstage at the burlesque"/murder whodunit that suffers from a screenplay that, while quick with the witty one-liners, unfortunately plays fast and loose with the intended conclusion.

Dracula - Dead and Loving It
3 days ago via Movies on Android phone

Mel Brooks goes to the old Universal horror franchise and tries for another parody homage like Young Frankenstein, this time with the vampire branch of operations. Strangely though he only chooses unknown actresses for the female leads (except for an uncomfortable cameo by his wife lampooning the great Maria Ouspenkaya) which is a substantial break in the formula. So, while laff-out-loud funny in parts, in other places not so much = an uneven offering. The result is that Peter MacNicol as Renfield is the only one in the cast who seems to know he's in a Mel Brooks comedy. Harvey Korman does a good Brit accent but essentially has nothing to do the whole piece, has only one, count 'em, one joke. A tragic misfire, but not a total loss.

Update the classic High Noon, say, set it in space, cast uber-charismatic Sean Connery as the lead, and lose all that time wasting moral implication stuff = well, two out of three ain't bad. Who knew that all that moral stuff was actually the heart of the piece, and not the action???
And w/o those important considerations, the piece just ain't got the legs.
It does have Sean Connery though.

The Hill
The Hill (1965)

In a British military prison camp harsh measures are taken to "turn these men into soldiers". When is too much discipline too much?
Excellent performances, brisk direction, spare writing all combine to make this truly a potboiler of a work that you may have never heard of.
I first saw it at a drive-in, back when it was first released, 49 years ago. Holy smoke.
