Arrivederci, Baby (1966)

Assassination Bureau, The (1969)

This dry period comedy has ardent feminist and would-be journalist Miss Winter (Diana Rigg) infiltrating a gang of killers whose members only accept contracts on those who "deserve" to die. Rigg persuades the gang's leader Ivan Dragomiloff (Oliver Reed) to allow himself to become a target as a challenge to his professionalism. But events are(...)

Assault On A Queen (1966)

Some gangsters get their hands on a German submarine and set out to pirate a luxury liner in this rather unlikely crime caper that fails at many levels. The acting is stilted, the special effects are unconvincing, and Rod Serling's screenplay falters. Also with Tony Franciosa, Richard Conte, and Alf Kjellin. Frank Sinatra Virna Lisi(...)

Astro Zombies (1968)

A mad scientist sets out to gather the human parts necessary to create a race of mindless killers. The (so-called) plot has something to do with resurrecting corpses through use of a brain wave machine of some sort . The Astro Zombie is a man in a rubber mask. The leads try to keep a(...)

Babes in Toyland (1961)

Victor Herbert's operetta Babes in Toyland brought classic Mother Goose characters together through story and song. The opera had already been brought to the silver screen once in 1934 (Laurel and Hardy starred), but Walt Disney felt the time was right for a new Technicolor version starring Ray Bolger, pop star Tommy Sands and ex-Mouseketeer Annette Funicello. Mary Contrary(...)

Baby Love (1968)

Baby Love (1968)

A dripping tap grows into a raging gush over the opening credits. The bath is about to overflow but Diana Dors is busy applying lipstick at a fogged-up mirror and bringing a razor to her wrists (after being diagnosed with terminal cancer). The water receives the corpse, and her teenage daughter (Linda Hayden) stumbles upon(...)

Ballad of Josie, The (1967)

Widow Josie Minick (Doris Day) takes up sheep farming in order to support herself and her son. Her new neighbours are dismayed by her activities. Bland is too strong a word for this tepid flick, which never really catches fire despite being directed by western ace Andrew V McLaglen. Doris Day is good, even though(...)

Bandolero (1968)

Having fought on opposing sides during the American Civil War, brothers Mace (James Stewart) and Dee (Dean Martin) Bishop join forces as part of an outlaw gang that is forced to flee across the border from Sheriff Johnson (George Kennedy) with beautiful Maria (Raquel Welch) in tow.

Barbarella (1967)

Barbarella (1967)

The year is 40,000 AD. Peacefully floating around in zero-gravity - and taking her clothes off to what sounds like Herb Alpert and his Tijuana Horns - sexy 41st Century astronaut Barbarella is suddenly interrupted by a video call from the boa-clad President of Earth and Rotating Premier of the Sun System, Dianthus. A young(...)

Barefoot In The Park (1967)

Neil Simon's sometimes hilarious Broadway comedy about two newlyweds coping with life in New York City holds up nicely on the screen with plenty of one-liners intact. Redford and Fonda are the charming couple who reside in a fourth-floor walk-up apartment. Mildred Natwick plays the bride's mother. Charles Boyer and Herb Edelman are also in(...)

Bargee, The (1964)

"The Casanova of the canals" The Bargee follows the misadventures of womanising barge worker Hemel Pike (Harry H. Corbett), making his living travelling the waterways of England, always making sure there’s a woman waiting for him at every port of call. Hemel says that the only way to get him off the canals would be to fill(...)

Batman (1966)

With the instant popularity of the campy 1960's Batman TV series, 20th Century Fox decided a big-screen adventure was in order. The plots were still ludicrous and the dialogue even sillier, but as always, stars Adam West (pictured at right) and Burt Ward played their parts with a straight-laced sincerity that made things all the more hilarious.(...)

Battle Of Britain, The (1969)

The air is thick with screen stars and 27 restored Spitfires flown by genuine WWII veterans defending Britain from the rampant Luftwaffe in the dark days of summer 1940. Laurence Olivier directs operations as Commander-in-chief Hugh Dowding, whose shrewd strategy with his limited fighter command induced the Luftwaffe to make fatal errors that led to(...)
