The Agony and the Ecstasy - 1965 - Michelangelo (Chuck Heston) is given the honor of painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican. Only problem is, he doesn't want the project, and after being forced to take it, his first effort is less than satisfactory (to Michelangelo) who vandalizes the images he has made and then goes on the run from a very angry Pope. How the artist who detests painting (sculpting is better, he claims) and the irascible art-loving Pope finally work out their differences is the tale in Carol Reed's 1965 big-budget 'art-epic.'

The Freshman - 1990 - Marlon Brando reprises... or does he satirize? his Godfather character of Don Vito Corleone in this comedy in which a freshman film student (Matthew Broderick) takes a part-time job with Carmine Sabatini, legendary New York City Italian "importer" who assures the young Vermont lad that his high-paying gig as a transporter of rare imported items is perfectly legal. It isn't. Written and Directed by Andrew Bergman.

Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines - 1965 - International Air Race comedy with beautiful photography and classic antique aeroplanes from the very beginning of the air age.

Sadie McKee 1934 - Joan Crawford battles the great depression, a husband's alcoholism, Franchot Tone, and her lower class start in life (she's a maid at a mansion, then ends up in a dance hall before marrying a millionaire), she proceeds to triumph through each and every adversity. With Gene Raymond as a ukulele player.

Zombies of Mora Tau 1957 - Allison Hayes, Autumn Russell and Gregg Palmer face off against a B-Movie sailor-zombie problem while trying to fetch a cache of diamonds from the ocean depths along the African coast.

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.

3 Days of the Condor, 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.
