    Hannie Caulder

    ★★★½

    Her home destroyed. Her husband killed. Her innocence taken away. All frontier wife Hannie (Raquel Welch) wants is vengeance against the outlaw brothers (Ernest Borgnine, Jack Elam, Strother Martin) responsible. Perhaps not the most strikingly original of Westerns, but some interesting touches and fine casting help.

    Colorful score by Ken Thorne.

  • Nightmare Alley

    Nightmare Alley

    ★★★★

    Mentalist Stan Carlisle (Tyrone Power) is eager to move on from the carnival he works at, but are his skills good enough to outwit high society? Not even a studio-imposed 'happy' ending can undercut this entertaining noir. Pervasive atmosphere and a superb cast keep this film compelling all the way.

    A Bear for Punishment

    ★★★★★

    Pa Bear is honored by his family on Father's Day...whether he likes it or not. One giggle-inducing gag after another in this cartoon. The expressions on Junyer's face during the "My Pa" poem alone are enough to make this a classic.

    The Blue Gardenia

    ★★★½

    Scavenger Hunt #46
    Task #4: A movie with a blue poster or the word 'blue' in the title

    Following a night of drinking, Norah (Anne Baxter) wakes up to a hangover and the news that the man (Raymond Burr) she was with is dead. Is she the killer? Well-done interweaving of noir and melodrama, with some nice touches.
