Drama

British Intelligence (1940)

Helene von Lorbeer is sent undercover to London to live with the family of a high-placed British official where she is to transmit steal war secrets for Germany. Starring Boris Karloff. This is a spy movie that you should like, if you like that genre. Boris Karloff plays a domestic servant involved in espionage during World War I, in a film that is filled with so many double agents that you won’t be able to figure out who is on which side until the film ends.

Crime

Hollywood Stadium Mystery (1938)

Same bat time, same bat channel. It’s Neil Hamilton proving that he’s as good an actor as a leading man as he was being Commissioner Gordon on Batman. I almost expected Bruce Ward to say “Holy Chick with a Feather in her hat Batman!” But since that doesn’t happen, you’ll have to settle for a fair whodunnit about a boxer who gets poisoned in the ring.

Drama

Valley of the Dolls (1967)

Sharon Tate (yep… victim of the Manson family) stars here in the trashy film version of author Jacqueline Susann’s trashy 1966 novel alongside Hollywood veterans Susan Hayward, Lee Grant and Patty Duke as well as TV’s ‘Bad Girl’ Peyton Place star Barbara Parkins. Did I mention this movie was trashy and scandalous for 1967?
