Double Indemnity. An insurance rep lets himself be talked into a murder/insurance fraud scheme that arouses an insurance investigator's suspicions.Stars:Fred MacMurray, Barbara Stanwyck and Edward G. Robinson and directed by the legendary Billy Wilder.
Brilliant film noir, thick in atmosphere, with some terrific performances by the leads. Got to be nearly a 10/10.

Simon, King of the Witches (1971)

Obscure counter-cultural early 70's movie starring Andrew Prine as a modern-day warlock
who joins the (post-)hippie life-style.

An interesting time-capsule, but not as good as some claim it to be, mostly because of some
unspectacular cinematography, which gives it a made-for-tv kind of feel to it.
The great performance by Andrew Prine in the role of Simon makes this one worth watching.

Prine's always good, but I agree with you, Johnny, "Simon, King of the Witches," is just fair, defintely a time-capsule piece.

Hustling aka Prostitution: A Deadly Profession (1975)

"Based on Gail Sheehy's book, this film chronicles how a reporter for a New York City magazine
decided to investigate the city's prostitution industry to find out just who was making all the money.
What she found out caused a firestorm of controversy--that many of the city's richest and most powerful families
and corporations benefited directly and indirectly from the illegal sex business." (IMDb)

This was a nice little educational tv-movie directed by Joseph Sargent.
Cool mid 70s street scenes and good job from the cast:
Lee Remick, Jill Clayburgh, Alex Rocco, Monte Markham, Melanie Mayron and Burt Young.
The movie is available on dvd as part of the Synergy Archive Series.

East End Hustle (1976)

"An ex-prostitute rescues one of her pimp's potential new recruits, beginning a deadly rivalry." (IMDb)

Interesting and sleazy canuxploitation flick directed by Frank Vitale.
Starring Andrée Pelletier, Anne-Marie Provencher, Miguel Fernandes and Allan Moyle who also co-wrote the movie.
Moyle later directed two Rewind favorites, Pump Up the Volume and Empire Records.

Lots of nudity, violence, crazy cuts, bad acting and mid 70s Montreal scenery.

Revisited my box set of the Rathbone/Bruce Sherlock Holmes series.14 great films, based mainly on the Conan Doyle stories, all but the first updated to the current time (ie the WW11 war years) and several having the Nazis as the enemies, rather than late Victorian criminals. A few less than very good, but all very solid.
Well worth £15, with a few yak tracks as extras.

1939: The Hound Of The Baskervilles
1939: The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes
1942: Sherlock Holmes And The Voice Of Terror
1942: Sherlock Holmes And The Secret Weapon
1943: Sherlock Holmes In Washington
1943: Sherlock Holmes Faces Death
1944: Sherlock Holmes And The Spider Woman
1944: The Scarlet Claw
1944: The Pearl Of Death
1945: The House Of Fear
1945: The Woman In Green
1945: Pursuit To Algiers
1946: Terror By Night
1946: Sherlock Holmes And The Secret Code ("Dressed To Kill" In The USA)

Fascination (1979)

Directed by Jean Rollin and starring Jean-Marie Lemaire, Brigitte Lahaie, Franca Mai and Fanny Magier.

"This erotic horror film, set in 1906, tells the story of a thief who seeks refuge in a castle owned by two women,
Eva (Brigitte Lahaie) and Elizabeth (Franca Mai).
The women are seductive and teasing, but turn out to be part of a vampiric cult of blood-drinking aristocrats.
(IMDb)

Well, i watched my first Rollin film earlier today and it was... interesting to say the least.
Pretty low-budget, not much going on plotwise and the camera moves sloooowly...

On the other hand we have beautiful bloodthirsty women, nudity and a strange, eerie atmosphere.
Somehow you just have to see what´s going to happen to the main character.
Definitely not for everyone but i think that i´m hooked [Smile]

Jean Rollin and Pete Walker.. now we're talking movies !! [Big Grin]

Seriously, their movies were the ones i started collecting some 20 years ago or so.
Very hard to find in the 90s, because the golden days of the video era were over and the old
rental-tapes were long gone from videostores by that time. UK video label Redemption released
some of them (along with the likes of Jess Franco for example) in the 90s, but things got
really interesting when the same movies started showing up on the then-new digital format of DVD.
70s euro-trash proved to be extremely popular to a new generation of movie-collectors.
Even the British Film Institute joined in by releasing a very cool Pete Walker double-feature on both DVD
as well as blu-ray ! (Man of Violence and The Big Switch)
Many of the Jean Rollin horror titles have been released on numerous dvd-editions.
(most noteworthy among those are the 3-disc collector's editions of Levres de Sang, Les Demoniaques, Requiem pour Un Vampire and La Morte Vivante,
as well as 2-disc editions of La Nuit des Traquees and Le Frison des Vampires released by
Encore Entertainment).
Throw all known narrative structure overboard and enjoy these dreamlike, extremely atmospheric
masterpieces of subversive cinema !

Currently i'm busy trying to collect as many as Rollin's movies which he made as Michel Gentil
as possible. Many of these venture into adult-oriented areas and have yet to be released on
any kind of digital format.

Jean Rollin sadly passed away almost exactly one year ago now, aged 72.
