Son of Robin Hood

Son of Robin Hood (1958)

It is a long standing joke that when the men behind the movies run out of ideas for a franchise they do away with the central character and bring in the son to take over, only ever extending the franchise realistically for one more movie. That is exactly wha...

The Sword of Monte Cristo

The Sword of Monte Cristo (1951)

I like to try and put myself in the mind of the men who green light movies to try and work out what they were thinking. As such when it comes to "The Sword of Monte Cristo" I can imagine a small time studio boss and his ideas men sitting around a table knowi...

SOS Pacific

SOS Pacific (1959)

If you watched "SOS Pacific" with no idea of what it was about it would be easy to suspect this cheaply made movie from the late 50s was going to be a typical disaster movie. The whole set up introduces us to the diverse bunch of passengers who are going to ...
