Herbie goes to Monte Carlo, 1977

Julie Sommars - Herbie goes to Monte Carlo 1977

The third in the Herbie films from Walt Disney, the 1963 volkswagon which thinks, acts and communicates (via rain wipers, the dash radio, tires, doors opening and closing, and most particularly by taking charge of the wheel and steering on its own) with its human owner race car driver Jim Douglas (Dean Jones) is entered into the Trans-France Race, aka The Monte Carlo Rally, in which racers start from multiple locations in Europe to then all merge in Monaco. The actual race was begun in 1911 by the Prince of Monaco Albert I as a showcase for automotive innovation.

Julie Sommars - Herbie goes to Monte Carlo 1977

This sequel stars Julie Sommars as racer Diane Darcy, who drives a 1976 Lancia Scorpion, which causes Herbie "The Love Bug" to fall in love, and complications ensue as Diane Darcy thinks Jim Douglas is deliberately trying to sabotage her as the race progresses, when in fact it is only Herbie trying to gain the affection of the Lancia Scorpion that Darcy drives.

The Women, 1939

The Women 1939 - Joan Crawford Norma Shearer

Classic 1939 comedy-drama released September 1, 1939, and based on the Clare Booth Luce play with the same name in which an entirely female cast (no males are seen) wrestle with personal problems and each other. The cast features Joan Crawford in a villain role (as Crystal Allen) who has swiped the husband of Norma Shearer (Mary Haines) and soon has trouble hanging on to her conquest as mechanizations between the women of their extended social set (elite Manhatten society) moves the plot toward a particular purpose: Mary Haines growing claws ("jungle red") and developing an independent mind. Paulette Goddard, Joan Fontaine, Rosaling Russell, Butterfly McQueen, Theresa Harris and many other M-G-M female stars and supporting players are on hand in a unique movie about what "really happens" between women and their social cliques.

Dark of the Sun 1968 - Mercenaries are hired to go into the Congo civil war to rescue civilians and to also bring back a $25 million dollar cache of diamonds. Rod Taylor leads the mercenaries (James Brown, Peter Carsten and others) on a three day mission that soon includes Yvette Mimieux before everything begins to careen out of control.

Forbidden 1932 - Barbara Stanwyck throws away her career as a librarian for a more exciting lifestyle, but gets bogged down in a long-running relationship with a married statesman (Adolphe Menjou) and director Frank Capra has a hard time making sense of it all in this "weeper" from 1932.

Ball of Fire 1941 - Barbara Stanwyck introduces Gary Cooper to "yum-yum" and it turns his world upside down. Why did she do this? He was perfectly happy secluded in an old house with 7 other bachelors working on writing an encyclopedia. She, however, needed a place to hide from the police and these "eight fish in a barrel" seemed like the perfect cover. Mayhem ensues.

Penguin Pool Murder, 1932 - James Gleason and Edna May Oliver star in a wise-cracking murder mystery set in the New York City Aquarium. He's a police detective and certain she's a meddling old maid until he notices she's not only smarter than everyone else in the room, but she's going to solve the case with or without his help.

The Killing -1956 - Sterling Hayden leads a group of small-time crooks in executing a daring precision racetrack robbery, until a few tiny details screw everything up. A fast-action, time-bending story of an (almost) perfect crime. Marie Windsor and Coleen Gray also star. Kubrick's direction is tight and as efficient as the crime being shown onscreen.

3 Days of the Conder, 1975 - Robert Redford as CIA analyst Joe Turner, trapped between warring factions within the CIA itself. Confused by why everyone is shooting at him, he goes on the run with kidnapped Faye Dunnaway in tow. Sydney Pollack's direction is tense and has clear storytelling. Max von Sydow is on hand as an amused veteran hitman who learns Joe Turner a thing or two. A great big slice of 1970s paranoia powers the film and lays down the template for many films that have followed afterward.

Easy Living, 1937 - Jean Arthur is poor Mary Smith who suddenly becomes the target of every salesman in town trying to gain access to the wealthy, all because of her impromptu friendship with millionaire investor J. B. Ball (Edward Arnold) who she meets by accident when he tosses his wife's fur coat off the top of an apartment building. Classic screwball comedy with script from Preston Sturges.

The Alligator People, 1959 - Tragic case of a man slowly becoming an alligator, and his determined wife (Beverly Garland) who wants to find him (he's in hiding) and get answers. With a hook-handed Lon Chaney Jr as a maniacal alligator hunter in the bayou. Appeared the same year as the famous Elizabeth Taylor film Suddenly Last Summer, and shares many remarkable similarities.

The Last Valley 1971 - Michael Caine and Omar Sharif find refuge in a valley untouched by the ravages of the Thirty Year War devastating Europe. As the snow flies, a peaceful calm settles over the encamped soldiers (who are really more like bandits) and villagers (who have secrets), but Spring is coming.

Heaven Knows, Mr Allison - 1957 - Deborah Kerr and Robert Mitchum. He's a marine and she's a nun on a Japanese occupied island during World War II. Well-done John Huston directed film that somehow finds a way to square a circle when we see that our two characters are completely unable to pursue the love they obviously share.

The Quiet Man, 1952 - Director John Ford's favorite personal project and a comic masterpiece (which he was afraid he had botched while filming it in Ireland) with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara as newlyweds who must battle their village and themselves to achieve marital peace.

Bachelor Mother 1939 - He's (Niven) the son of the owner (Coburn) of a department store who thinks he's doing a good deed by reuniting an employee (Ginger Rogers) with her child given up to an orphanage. Only the kid isn't hers, and nothing she does can convince anyone of the truth. A screwball comedy classic.

The Lady Eve - 1941 - Preston Sturges directed this most stately of his farcical comedies as a personal challenge to tailor a comedy around Barbara Stanwyck. He provides so much ammo she needs to play two characters, with a befuddled Henry Fonda relunctant to sort it all out (though William Demerst has no trouble doing so).

Night of the Hunter 1955 - British arch-actor Charles Laughton directed only one film, and it features Robert Mitchum as a demented and homicidal preacher (with "love" and "hate" tattooed upon his hands) who is trying to chase down a pair of orphaned children who know the location of hidden bank loot. The only thing standing in his way is a determined Lillian Gish and her shotgun.

X From Outer Space 1967 - Japanese sci-fi tale in which egg-shaped spores catch a ride on a space exploration craft, eventually coming to earth to grow into a Godzilla-sized 'super chicken' that rampages through Tokyo. Though made in the image of a Toho monster movie, this Shochiku Studios effort has a strangely unique take on monster movies cliches.
