How Awful About Allan
5 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Here's an idea: what if we team sensitive psychologically Anthony Perkins (of Psycho fame) with sensitive psychologically Julie Harris (of The Haunting fame) in a big, old dark house and whisper "who dat?" over and over? And that's the whole ticket here. The upshot is predictable, yes, but there are moments of creepy goodness. Save this for later. Much later.

The entry idea is that, in a world of more and more reliance on computer interfacing, ultimately there'll be people who can hack your reality. Cool idea, right? But, going for some sort of Matrix-y noir feel, they let possibility slip through their veritable fingers and so ... late night snooze fest coming up instead.

What if zombies could be cured? This Irish production kinda ponders the implications, but stays too formulaic, too safe, in the end, forgetting that the subject matter DEMANDS outlandish, fantastic elements. The ultimate result is less than dramatic, less than interesting. Still, a good idea. I waited in vain for at least one scene where titled characters drooled while eyeing some innocent victim mindlessly.

Tribute to a Bad Man

Cagney makes it totally believable that he's a ranch owner in the middle of nowhere, Colorado, dealing with horse thieves the old fashioned way. His big problem though is that the only woman in over 200 miles is undecided as to her affections. Loads of typical Western shots, horseflesh, and cowpokes spitting gives the work authenticity, and Irene Papas makes her indecision gambit viable. The story is told through the eyes of one Don Dubbins as The Kid, and he unfortunately lacks the charisma to hold interest.

A tiny melodrama played out beneath the towering Grand Tetons, Ford plays a wandering cowpoke taken in by warmhearted ranch owner Borgnine and is prospering except for the attentions of unhappy housewife French. On the sidelines is villain Steiger, only a little overdone, whispering treacheries. It's a competent Western, though held aloft almost entirely by the depth's portrayed by Borgnine's heroic big numbskull.
