"THE JOURNEY OF AUGUST KING" (1995) Review

When the 1995 adaptation of John Ehle's 1971 novel, "The Journey of August King" hit the theaters, it barely made a flicker in the consciousness of moviegoers. In a way, I could see why.

"THE JOURNEY OF AUGUST KING" begins with widowed farmer August King traveling through the hills of western North Carolina in the spring of 1815, after selling his produce, making a final payment on his land, and purchasing goods at the local markets. During his journey, he learns about a hunt for an escaped slave. August eventually comes across the slave - a 17 year-old...

"ESCAPE FROM FORT BRAVO" (1953) Review

Years ago, I used to watch a great deal of old Filme on late night television. My two Favorit channels that offered these Filme were Turner Network Fernsehen (TNT) and the American Filme Classic (AMC), which used to air Filme without any commercial breaks. On TNT, I had stumbled across a Western movie originally released Von MGM Studios in 1953 called "ESCAPE FROM FORT BRAVO" (1953) and fell in Liebe with it. After watching my recently purchased DVD copy of the movie, I could see why it became a Favorit of mine.

Directed Von John Sturges during the...

"KING OF THE KHYBER RIFLES" (1953) Review

Twentieth-Century fuchs was never a studio that I would associate with Filme about the British Empire. Mind you, the studio had released several during the period between its formation in 1935 and the 1953 release of "KING OF THE KHYBER RIFLES". Yet . . . it never seemed to produce many productions on European imperialism in compare to studios like Paramount Pictures, Warner Brothers and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

Just recently, I watched "KING OF THE KHYBER RIFLES" and discovered that it was a remake of John Ford's 1929 adventure film, "THE BLACK WATCH". And...

"THE PRISONER OF ZENDA" (1937) Review

I realize that many film critics and Fans would agree with my suspicion that the 1930s saw a great deal of action films released to theaters. In fact, I believe there were as high number of actions films released back then as they are now. Among the type of action films that flourished during that era were swashbucklers.

One of the most famous Hollywood swashbucklers released during the 1930s was "THE PRISONER OF ZENDA", producer David O. Selznick's 1937 adaptation of Anthony Hope's 1894 novel. This tale of middle European political intrigue and identity...

"THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO" (1934) Review

I have seen only two versions of Alexandre Dumas père's 1845 novel, "The Count of Monte Cristo" in my past - the 1975 Fernsehen version with Richard Chamberlain and the 2002 Disney film with James Cavielzel. While Lesen a good number of Artikel about the movie versions of the novel, I came across numerous praises for the 1934 adaptation that starred Robert Donat. And since I happened to like Dumas' story so much, I decided to see how much I would like this older version.

Set between the last months of the Napoleonic Wars and the 1830s, "THE COUNT...
