    At Swords Point w/ Cornel Wilde, Maureen O'Hara, Dan O'Herlihy and Alan Hale Jr--as the Sons of the original three Musketeers and the Daughter of the 4ft Musketeer.

    This was a pretty darn good movie and can rival some of Errol Flynn and Louis Hayward's best period movies. If you like these kinds of movies? I highly suggest buying and watching it--you will NOT--be disappointed.:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Just watched: The Spanish Main w/ Maureen O'Hara, Binnie Barnes, Walter Slezak, Paul Henried, Mike Mazurki and Barton MacLane.

    Though not as good as an Errol Flynn Pirate movie--its pretty good and the cast was a great cast. Maureen O'Hara and all do an outstanding job.. This movie is not a "standard" Pirates vs movie but--it was well made, well acted and well directed. It never got slow nor boring. This is another I would highly recommend buying for your movies collection.:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Recently watched:

    Sci Fi Channels production called: The Dead. I dont know who was in it? but it takes place in Africa. I didnt catch the full movie either so dont know what caused people to be turned into the "Walking Daed" and I was highly disappointed with its ending. Otherwise, I thought for a Sci Fi Channel made movie--it was pretty good except for what I call "gaps" in the storyline. Because of not enough "info"--some things just do not coincide.

    On TCM: they premiered a movie I had been thinking about getting on DvD, so I watched it to see if it was worthy? well--IMO--it was not. Anyway, the movie is called: Moonfleet w/ Stewart Granger, John Hoyt, George Sanders, Jack Elam and John Alderson (SP?) If one thinks this movie is anything like any they have seen Errol Flynn, Douglas Fairbanks Jr, Robert Newton, Cornel Wilde et el in--well--it wasnt. The movie itself was slow and rarely sped up. Has nothing to do with Pirates on the high seas-as the title suggested to me--and "Moonfleet" was actually an Pub/Inn--where several Pirates went to go meet. I would buy this movie if it was offered for $1 Dollar.

    Just watched last night: Pathfinders: In the Company of Strangers. For a movie with no names acting in it that I recognized--I thought it was well made. Its an OK movie at best and worthy of being in any War Movie collection because of the story--but is not worth the price I paid to buy it.

    I had to cleanse myself of all the recent disappointments in moviedom that I endured--w a great classic: The Desert Rats w/ Richard Burton, Torin Thatcher, James Mason and the man who might have made Moonfleet much better: Robert newton.

    Still "Cleansing my movies palate" by watching a Gary Cooper classic: Springfield Rifle w/ Cooper, Phil Carey, Fess Parker, Alan Hale Jr, Brian David and Lon Chaney Jr. An excellent Civil War Western with zero faults.:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Enjoyed a British War Classic this morning: The Colditz Story w/ Sir John Mills, Eric Portman, Lionel Jeffries, Anton Differing and Theodor Bikel. This is my top most favorite of a non-American related movie and it had a top notch and unbeatable cast.

    The Flying Misfits w/ Robert Conrad as Major Gregory "Pappy" Boyington, Dana Elcar as Colonel Lard, Simon Oakland as General Moore, James Whitmore Jr as Captain Jim Gutterman, John Larroquette, Jeff Mackay and so many others. This TV movie was the actual pilot episode for the TV series called: Baa Baa Black Sheep/The Black Sheep Squadron. As a kid--I loved that show as much as COMBAT and The Gallant Men TV Series.:thumb::thumb:

    As far as in the movies, of course, it was Dunkirk, on the TV it was Bridge at Remagen from 1969. Watched it on Comcast on Demand, free movies.

    Hell or High Water, Jeff Bridges and Chris Pine. A damn good little movie that proves you do not need 100 million dollars of CGI to tell a great story.
