What Became Of Jack and Jill? (1972)

In order to collect his gran's inheritance money, lazy, amoral Johnny (Paul Nicholas) and his sexy but cold-as-ice girlfriend Jill (Vanessa Howard) try to induce a heart attack in his invalid grandmother (Mona Washbourne) by convincing her that radical youth supremacists have taken over England and they intend to enact genocide on the elderly (like her).(...)

What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? (1962)

Director Robert Aldrich gave Bette Davis and Joan Crawford a bizarre new lease on life in What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? - an extraordinary extension of the sadomasochistic elements that ran through their film careers - in which they played two elderly sisters trapped in the past. Davis was the child star of the title until(...)

What the Peeper Saw (1972)

A widowed English writer brings a young, glamorous new bride (Britt Ekland) to his bleak, isolated home in rural Spain. She soon becomes obsessed with her 12-year old stepson (Mark Lester), who she learns has just been expelled from school for mysterious offenses. He is obviously a brilliant and lonely child, but he also enjoys, exploits, and feeds(...)

What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? (1993)

This eccentric, charming film by Lasse (My Life as a Dog, 1985) Hallström was one of the freshest and most original movies of 1993. Mr. Depp (something of a professional weirdo) gave his most understated performance to date in the title role, playing the reluctant breadwinner in a dysfunctional family in Endora, Iowa - a(...)

What’s Good For The Goose (1969)

Norman Wisdom takes an unusually risqué approach to humour here as a meek bank manager who meets a swinging hippie girl and tries to adapt to her carefree lifestyle, leaving his wife and marriage in the dust. Wisdom plays Timothy Bartlett, a family man who is dedicated to wife Margaret (Sally Bazely) and their children. He travels alone to(...)

What’s New, Pussycat? (1965)

Woody Allen wrote the script for this story about an eccentric psychiatrist (Sellers) and a troubled fashion editor (O'Toole) who's obsessed with women, whom he calls "pussycats" and keeps reiterating the title to every female he meets. O'Toole does not count on Sellers' own hilariously overheated sex-drive and a merry-go-round of the Sixties most beautiful(...)

What’s Up Doc? (1972)

In a hotel in San Francisco sit four identical tartan (plaid) overnight bags. One contains rare rocks that are on their way to a conference of musicologists. One is full of valuable jewellery, one contains top secret government documents and one has a change of clothes. Shy, bespectacled, musicology professor Howard Bannister (Ryan O'Neal) is(...)

What’s up Superdoc? (1978)

Dr. Robert Todd (Christopher Mitchell) is approached by Dr. Annabel Leith (Julia Goodman), who is working on an artificial insemination research project, and is persuaded to take part on the strength of his exceptional qualities as a donor when he was a medical student (he fathered 837 children, all with high IQs). The project backfires(...)

What’s Up Tiger Lily? (1966)

One of Toho Studios' International Secret Police series, the already tongue-in-cheek Bond-spoof Kagi No Kag ("Key of Keys"), becomes an even more demented parody of Sixties spy film conventions in the hands of comedian/dubbing director Woody Allen, in this side-splittingly, funny melding of Eastern and Western pop cultures. Allen took the Japanese spy film and dubbed(...)

When A Stranger Calls (1979)

Student Jill Johnson (Carol Kane), babysitting for a L.A. doctor and his wife, is subjected to a night of terror by a mysterious and unseen man, who keeps telephoning, urging her to check that the children are alright. Turns out he is in fact in the house all the time and is a deranged killer who(...)

When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth (1969)

Set in the prehistoric past when humans and dinosaurs lived together (I know, I know!) a small tribe is struggling to survive by giving a sacrifice of a blonde woman to their god, the sun, in return for protection from the giant lizards and other creatures that prey on them. Cavegirl Sanna, one of the sacrificial(...)

When Eight Bells Toll (1971)

Made at an early stage in Anthony Hopkins's film career, this Alistair MacLean adventure gave him a rare opportunity to play an action hero. In a story adapted by MacLean himself, Hopkins plays Philip Calvert, a single-minded naval agent who is sent, with his aide, to investigate the piracy of gold-bullion ships in the Irish Sea.(...)

When Harry Met Sally (1989)

Rob Reiner's portrait of a couple whose growing attraction toward each other threatens to disrupt their friendship. Bouncy blonde Sally (Meg Ryan) is the "modern girl" who believes that she and Harry (Billy Crystal) can be friends without being lovers. Harry, on the other hand, believes that men and women can't enjoy a friendship without(...)

When the Boys Meet the Girls (1965)

Danny Churchill (Harve Presnell) is a young heir who tries to help Ginger (Connie Francis), an attractive postal worker in rural Nevada, save her father's ranch from closing due to being heavily in debt with some Reno gangster types as a result of her father's compulsive gambling. With his college friends help, Danny turns Ginger's(...)
