Galaxina (1980)

Games That Lovers Play (1971)

This 70s "sex comedy" stars the luscious Joanna Lumley, from The New Avengers and Absolutely Fabulous.  Aged 24 at the time, and with only three bit parts behind her, Joanna was more than prepared to strip off and appear in...

Gandahar (1987)

While Fantastic Planet (1973) is Rene Laloux's most famous film, Gandahar is a close second. Everything is calm and peaceful. The Gandaharian community has made great technical strides in creating eco-friendly technology by actually merging their environment...

Gandhi (1982)

Richard Attenborough's powerful account of the saintly Indian leader picked up eight Oscars and drew breathless praise from critics, partly for Ben Kingsley's quietly charismatic and thoughtful portrayal of the Mahatma (Kingsley is actually half-Indian...

Gas-s-s-s! (1970)

Geisha Boy, The (1958)

Genesis II (1973)

Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry failed to strike similar gold with this contrived tale involving Alex Cord as macho moustachioed NASA scientist Dylan Hunt who is the lone survivor of a post-millennium holocaust - trapped...

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)

In Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, the Marilyn Monroe mannerisms all combine in a very sexy explosion of music, comedy, and romance unequalled in the rest of her career. She had previously had many bit parts - and one starring role...

Geordie (1955)

Geordie MacTaggart (played by Paul Young as a child and Bill Travers as an adult) spends his Highland childhood - most of it in the company of his childhood sweetheart, Jean Donaldson (Norah Gorsen, a...

FEATURED POSTS

*Batteries Not Included (1987)

The presence of the distinguished Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy makes this saccharine-sodden retread of Cocoon (1985) worth watching. They play residents of a doomed New York block of flats (817 East 8th Street) - where an unscrupulous...

10 (1979)

George Webber (Dudley Moore) is doing very well. He is a successful composer with a great house up in the hills above Los Angeles, a Rolls Royce and Julie Andrews for a girlfriend. But then one...

10 Rillington Place (1971)

Based on Ludovic Kennedy’s 1961 non-fiction book of the same name, this film was a sombre, articulate, and chilling dramatisation of the infamous murders in London when John Reginald Christie - a mild-mannered psychotic mass...

100 Rifles (1969)

Lawman Lydecker (played by former Cleveland Browns Hall of Famer Jim Brown) and Yaqui Joe (an Indian bank robber played by Burt Reynolds) join forces with a female revolutionary (guess who) to help save Mexican Indians from...

101 Dalmatians (1961)
