We have much to teach you of 1970s sci-fi, young Bernard..... although if you fell asleep after half an hour, there was an awful lot of Jenny you would have missed....

8/10 from me.

Review on my blog HERE

Murderer's Row (1966)

The second Matt Helm movie, and yet another vehicle for Dean Martin. Still very good, although not quite up to the standard of The Silencers, so only 7.5/10 for this one.

I still have two more to watch (The Wrecking Crew and The Ambushers) so these will be marked just as soon as I get a chance to watch them.

Yes, I do need some pointers. Does she get her kit off close to the closing credits? If so I think it is worth watching the whole way through.

Bernie, it's worth watching all the way through irrespective of the chance to catch a glimpse of Jenny....

Jenny has a couple of fantastic scenes in China 9, Liberty 37, including one where she is bathing nude in a river and another where she is wearing the shearest of shear white nighgowns, and the scene is back lit. [Smile] In a current film world of actresses with heavy cosmetic surgey, collagen, and silicon, Jenny is a marvel with her beautiful, natural, unenhanced features and figure.

As for ummmm the other things in the movie, I really like China 9, Liberty 37, sort of a "thinking man's spaghetti Western." It is well directed by Monte Hellman, and Warren Oates is just great, as always, as the villain. The only real black mark against the film is Fabio Testi as the hero. He has all the charisma of a rod puppet, and I just got so angry over his love scene with Jenny. (Why would she even take a second look at that stiff loser? She should be with ME! [Smile] )

Johnny - Prepare to fast forward! Fast forwarding sir!

Paul - Yeah I am gonna watch it all the way through in the next couple of days.

Crash - I love your use of language to make it sound like there is something going for those films apart from Jenny's nakedness.

you know i would like to say that i have reached a point of maturity where i would view a film based off of its artistic value alone, but sadly no, i hear of ceartin actresses scene stealing moments and i find myself watching a film i probably wouldnt have thought to check out.

honest truth, the reason i watched valley girl was for elizabeth daily

maybe moviemakers are relying on people like me, using nudity as a marketing tool

You guys are hilarious! I always justify my failure to reach that point of maturity as "If I ever stop getting excited about something like seeing Jenny Agutter in China 9, Liberty 37, then hold a mirror up to my mouth. You'll see that I've stopped breathing--and am clinically dead!" LOL

There were so many amazing looking UK actresses from the 1970s--Agutter, Caroline Munro, Veroinica Carlson, Diana Rigg... I could go on and on. Heck, depending on how she parted her hair and smiled, Rita Tushingham--who made a cottage industry out of playing ugly-duckling parts in the 60s and 70s in films like "A Taste of Honey," "Dr. Zhivago," and "Straight on Till Morning"--could be a babe to me.

Oh, you are right. Never can forget young Linda Hayden from "The Blood on Satan's Claw" and "Taste the Blood of Dracula." She was another gorgeous gal of the era.

In the Heat of the Night (1967)

Classic! Rod Steiger and Sidney Poitier are fantastic.

Night Moves (1975)

 -

Amazing 70's crime thriller directed by Arthur Penn.

,L.A. detective Harry Moseby has problems. Missing persons and bedroom stake-outs are no match
for his glory days as a pro-football player. His wife is having a not-so-secret affair.
And while sorting things out, he takes on the case of a runaway teenager that may be a lot more
than he can handle.'

Any more information about the story would spoil it for those who've never seen it before.

Starring Gene Hackman at his very best here !
(and he certainly was on the roll in that period.. Within 4 years he did French Connection 1 + 2,
Prime Cut, The Poseidon Adventure, The Conversation and Night Moves)

And a terrific supporting cast, which also includes a young James Woods and an even younger Melanie Griffith,
whose teenage runaway character triggers the whole story.

Night Moves was released on region 1 dvd in 2005 by Warner Brothers. Surprisingly there is no UK dvd release.

Night Moves is a masterpiece !

On a side note : A decade later, Jeff Bridges would also play an ex-football star turned
private investigator (sort of) in Against All Odds, which remarkably also starred James Woods.

Will have to give that a look [Smile]

Just watched Point Blank (1967) A great film but I'd rather watch the awful 1998 film of the same name [Razz]

JRiR, Night Moves is one of the best movies from the 1970s and a personal favorite, though, for as many times as I've seen it, I'm not sure that I could pass an exam on the plot. It's such an impressive character study and mood piece that much like The Big Sleep, you just go with it. It has incredible dialogue too--remember the line about what "he would do with a woodpile"? [Smile]

Helen, how could you possibly prefer watching the not-bad-but-not-classic remake of Point Blank? Oh wait...you are referring to the cruddy direct-to-video movie with the title Point Blank with Mickey Rourke! (Thought you could fool us, huh? LOL) [Smile]

Acapulco Gold (1978 end credits say 1976)

This is a fun little drug smuggling flick directed by Burt Brinckerhoff.
This was one of the first VHS films i saw back in the mid 80s
and now i finally bought the tape and saw it again.

The movie stars Marjoe Gortner (Mausoleum, Jungle Warriors, Hellhole), Robert Lansing (The Nest),
Ed Nelson, John Harkins and cute Randi Oakes.

Nice easy-going feel, beautiful Hawaii locations and two semi-cool yacht rock tunes performed by Gregory Prestopino.
