Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966)

The famous Edward Albee play successfully makes the translation to the motion picture screen with excellent performances by Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, George Segal, and Sandy Dennis. Richard and Liz give the tale about a troubled middle-aged couple who impose on an innocent younger couple, a supercharged quality as two university professors and their wives(...)

Who’s Been Sleeping In My Bed? (1963)

There's an impressive line-up of players in this harmless bit of fun. Dean Martin is actor Jason Steele, who plays a caring, godlike doctor in a television series and who is pursued by women in real-life. When Elizabeth Montgomery (from TV's Bewitched) starts propelling him towards the altar, he goes to a psychiatrist for guidance. As the(...)

Wholly Moses! (1980)

Let's not mince words. Wholly Moses was a stinker! It was a lame biblical spoof about a character called Herschel who was hidden as a baby in the same bulrushes as Moses. The grown-up Herschel marries Moses' sister-in-law and then overhears the Lord's instructions to Moses but mistakenly believes they are meant for his ears . .(...)

Wicked, Wicked (1973)

Wicked, Wicked was presented in ANAMORPHIC DUO-VISION! What's Duo-Vision? It's two separate images projected at the same time. "Twice the tension! Twice the terror!" screamed the movie’s poster art, making the most of what was basically a fancy name for split-screen. Film and TV journeyman Richard L. Bare (Cheyenne, Green Acres) wrote and directed this(...)

Wicker Man, The (1973)

Wicker Man, The (1973)

Edward Woodward plays Sergeant Howie, sent to the remote island of Summerisle off the coast of Scotland to investigate an anonymous report of a missing girl. He finds a strange and sometimes perverse sub-culture practicing what appear to be ancient pagan rituals. As a devout Christian, Howie is not only offended, but ruthlessly determined to get(...)

Wife Swappers, The (1970)

Documentary on the cult of wife swapping in London shown in a series of dramatised episodes portraying the various ways in which married couples become attracted to the pastime and its effect on their lives. Narrator David Gell Paul James Donnelly Leonard Larry Taylor Ellen Valerie St. John Cliff Denys Hawthorne Sheila Bunty Garland Carol(...)

Wild and the Willing (1962)

Ian McShane and John Hurt made their feature film debuts in this swinging 1960s drama centring on a group of students and their sexual exploits and escapades. Harry (McShane) is a promising student whose academic career is derailed after he becomes romantically involved with a professor’s wife, and further threatened once he begins to plan(...)

Wild Angels, The (1966)

Bruce Dern rides with sulky nihilist Peter Fonda's Nazi-loving degenerate scum who only want to ride their machines without being hassled by The Man, be free to do what they wanna do, get loaded and have a good time. All well and good, but this means that when Bruce gets shot after rumbling with some(...)

Wild At Heart (1990)

Nicolas Cage as wild, snakeskin-jacketed Sailor Ripley, with an Elvis Presley voice, and Laura Dern as the uninhibited Southern sex bunny Lula Pace Fortune, create mayhem as they take their own Yellow Brick Road to happiness. This unlikely tribute to The Wizard of Oz created shock waves because of its provocative sexiness and the bizarre and amoral(...)

Wild Bunch, The (1969)

The Wild Bunch is regarded by many as the last great Western, although Clint Eastwood's The Outlaw Josey Wales has its followers too. A group of aging outlaws, led by William Holden, find themselves driven into Mexico pursued by one of their former gang members (Robert Ryan) and decide to go out in a proverbial blaze of glory.(...)

Wild Geese, The (1978)

Richard Burton, Roger Moore, Richard Harris and Hardy Kruger are evidently enjoying themselves in this all-action adventure. They play ageing mercenaries hired by Stewart Granger to rescue a deposed African president and put him back in power, all for the sake of big-business interests - a plot similar to Frederick Forsyth's The Dogs of War. Politically(...)

Wild Guitar (1962)

Young star Arch Hall Jr. is Bud Eagle, a country boy singer who motorcycles from Spearfish, South Dakota to Hollywood to become a star. His girlfriend Vickie is played by blonde Olympic skating champion Nancy Czar. Bud ends up in the clutches of promo man Mike McCauley (William Watters) who proceeds to rob him blind.(...)

Wild In The Country (1961)

This drama about Glenn Tyler - a rebellious backwoods delinquent on parole, who ends up going to college to become a great writer - represents an attempt to unveil Elvis Presley as a straight dramatic actor. He makes a respectable attempt but is not quite good enough, and has no help from an unconvincing plot and script.(...)

Wild In The Streets (1968)

Astounding, grunge-fuelled political satire of a rock star (Christopher Jones) who gets elected President after the voting age is lowered to fifteen. Along the way, he gets his spaced-out, vegetarian girlfriend (Diane Varsi) elected to Congress, dumps LSD into the Washington water supply and sets up concentration camps for everyone over 35. With songs by(...)

Wild On The Beach (1965)

Run-of-the-mill Beach Movie with a group of teenage girls inadvertently renting the same beach house as a group of teenage boys . . . uh-oh! - now they are going "Wild On The Beach". Sherry Jackson and singer Frankie Randall (being hailed as a new Sinatra at the time) head the cast in this tale(...)
