The order of the day was mutually assured destruction. I was 5 months old. The US Navy was adept at detecting Soviet submarines. Little did we know, his submarine had a nuclear torpedo. It was a hydrogen bomb. It had 80% odds of working. The Navy dropped some practice depth charges on it. They were just inviting it to surface. His Captain and his KGB political officer were ready for Armageddon and thought it it started.
Strange Illusion is a 1945 American film noir. This thing is a budget B. If there is any better copy of this, it isn’t mine. It’s still worth a watch. Reminiscent of a time when movies didn’t cost a hundred million bucks but had actual talent. It’s an Ulmer movie, that might get your attention about a man who is afraid of his mother’s boyfriend. Good performances and a decent plot.
It’s the same old sword and sandal where the men get captured by the Amazon women. It’s just the 1960′s plot line nobody ever got tired of. Well, not until 1970 anyway.
A couple travel to a village to investigate a painting by an artist they think is dead. They are told the ghost of the painter allowed a blind man to finish the work.
