5.0 out of 5 stars I love it on way too many levels... April 20 2014
By Big Bill TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
What an interesting collection of "B" colour movies. They are great for many different reasons. Liar's Moon has incredible plot twists. Deathrow Gameshow ... needs no furthur info. Almost Hollywood is insideout - it is a low budget movie about making a low budget movie !!! Indian Paint is the most unwatchable movie I have ever seen , yet has Jay Silverheels ( Tonto) and little Johnny Crawford ( The Rifleman ) in it. Good fun , in a let's watch the train wreck , way. Twelve movies in all .

5.0 out of 5 stars Value pack B(C?) movies Sept. 4 2014
Verified Purchase
...You really can't complain considering the price but the picture quality suffers on some more than others. None of these movies are good enough to deserve being on a single Blu-ray disc...but it's nice to hope that all movies are preserved so ya this is a fun campy collection of 12 movies in a format that probably suits them best.

By B dott
Verified Purchase
The box set has it all the Good and the trashy bad . And it also has some great value to it, Their is one film on it That stars William Shatner as the Presidents guard Called "The Kidnaping of the President" . If you look this movie up on Amazon it is no longer being sold "NEW"but people are selling used for $70
Death row game show is pretty fun too, a long with my moments a werewolf.
It's all a cheesy good time.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Collection Was Quite A Surprise - In A Good Way. Feb. 28 2011
By Paul Riesebeck - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I'm currently on a cheap old movie collection kick and have recently discovered several collections that have been released by Millbrook Entertainment, which, in the past I have had spotty success with. From what I have gathered they have purchased the film library of Crown International Pictures from Brentwood Entertainment, another low-rate video company that from what I understand went bankrupt.

So far I have received two of the seven collections. The first was Drive-In Cult Classics - 8 Movie Set and the second is this one, Rare Cult Cinema. I bought this mainly to see William Shatner in The Kidnapping of the President, which I remember seeing ages ago. I enjoyed it as much as I had remembered.

Remember, Crown International was a very low-budget producer of quickie films that were shown mostly as triple features at the drive-in. What you missed as far as quality was made up for in quantity that would keep you in your car or on your car sometimes until the very late hours of the evening.

What I found out is there was a lot more to this collection than I had imagined. Although most of the films are not shown in wide-screen, the print quality is extremely good for this type of collection. Often when you buy these you end up watching choppy, scratched, jumpy films that have seen their better days. For the most part these films, and also the other collection that I mentioned earlier, are clean and clear.

There were a couple of films on this collection that really surprised me. African Safari, a documentary, was an excellent film about that continent in 1968. Another film, Road To Nashville, a pseudo documentary from 1967 shows many of the best stars in country music at the time.

I got this on Amazon for less than 6 dollars and thought it was worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars B-Rated Movie heaven Oct. 20 2010
By Bennet Pomerantz - Published on Amazon.com
Crown International Pictures is primarily known for low budget flicks, grindhouse cinema, biker films, exploitation films, and B-movie drive in fare. This collection is a showcase of what CIP was all about,

This 12 film collection has a little bit of every type of B fare that you would see in a drive from the 60's thru the 90's. some star vehicles and some with unknowns. What makes this collection entertaining is its a mish-mash of everything.

Three of the best (and my favorites) on this collection are the Kidnapping of the President, Deathrow Gameshow and Road to Nashville. President has an all star cast (Hal Holbrook, William Shatner, Ava Gardner and Van Johnson) in a cat and mouse poltical thriller. Gameshow is a satire in a similar vein to The Running Man [Blu-ray]. Nashville is an all star country concert with Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings.

There are other stars in this best of Drive-in Noir like Susan (Rich Man, Poor Man: The Complete Collection) Blakely, Adam West, Glenn Ford, and the Rifleman's Johnny Crawford.

There is a genre for anyone is this collection..so get it

3.0 out of 5 stars YOUNG GRADUATES in widescreen, but only on certain TVs Jan. 5 2011
By Jobla - Published on Amazon.com
This set does offer decent variety of genres, as has been said here. However, the transfer of THE YOUNG GRADUATES only "unsqueezes" to widescreen on some TVs. For example, it looked fine on my widescreen high-def TV monitor, but wouldn't unsqueeze on my other TV, an older Sony Trinitron model. So, a word of caution: if you want to see the film letterboxed, you'll probably need a newer TV or monitor.

The previous release of THE YOUNG GRADUATES didn't suffer from that inconsistency. The widescreen 1:78-1 image played fine on all TVs. However, that release was somewhat hard to find, available only via mail order. It went out of print fairly quickly. That release was a box set entitled DRIVE-IN CULT CLASSICS VOL. 4, from the defunct BCI label.

The film itself is a wonderfully entertaining story of a young graduate (the beautiful Patricia Wymer) and her adventures in early-1970's society. She encounters an older teacher, hippies, bikers, and other relics of the era. It's dated now, but does provide a fun time capsule of its era.
