4.0 out of 5 stars NOBODY COULD RESIST RAQUEL IN A BIKINI IN 1967, July 28 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you collect spy movies or tv series of the sixties,you'll be glad to add FATHOM to your list.Why?In most of the film,you can watch RAQUEL in bikinis.If this ain't enough,the story is full of plot twists that makes it fun viewing;you'll wonder who are the good or the bad guys.FATHOM is not best spy flick of the sixties,but it's more entertaining than most JAMES BONDS after GOLDFINGER.In fact,if i ever meet RAQUEL WELCH someday,i'll ask her to autograph this dvd and i am not kidding.God,i wish that FATHOM or a girl like her land in my backyard in a parachute.Dream on!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE LEGEND LIVES ON, July 27 2014
Being a legend,there are of course many books about JOHN WAYNE.I didn't read the other books,but i went through this one and i am happy to say that if you are looking for a DUKE biography,this is it.The author has done a great job throughout mixing his personal life and movie career.You'll learn about his three wifes,his children;you'll also know the directors who worked with him often:JOHN FORD,HOWARD HAWKS and HENRY HATHAWAY.JOHN WAYNE started as a prop man and owes his career to JOHN FORD who made him a star with STAGECOACH.You'll also learn about his beginning in B westerns which really gave him the expériences he needed as an actor.If like me you are a fan of DUKE,buy this book.You'll cherish the numerous anecdotes told by his peers about the man who wasn't really the macho man you thought he was.

4.0 out of 5 stars FOR RIO GRANDE AND THE HORSE SOLDIERS, July 24 2014
I bought this for RIO GRANDE and THE HORSE SOLDIERS,so i was not disapointed.As for THE SEARCHERS,the theme is available in many collections like WESTERN THEMES THE ESSENTIAL ALBUM.I agreed about the SEARCHERS song being badly sung for this collection.This is not the complete JOHN WAYNE-JOHN FORD music collection because they made 12 films together.

5.0 out of 5 stars FREE JAZZ, July 23 2014
This review is from: Out to Lunch (Audio CD)
A prime example of free jazz music.That kind of music is not for all tastes,but if you are game.it's rewarding.Free jazz originated in the late fifties with names like ORNETTE COLEMAN,CECIL TAYLOR,JOHN COLTRANE in his last years and his friend ERIC DOLPHY.For some this music is only noise with improvisations.If you only dig rock and roll,forget this.If you want music that goes deep in the soul,try it.

5.0 out of 5 stars MISTER JOHN FORD, July 13 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is often said that director JOHN FORD liked WAGONMASTER a lot;it is one of the few films that he scripted and directed.It is a beautiful simple story with his so-called stock company of actors.SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON was one rare color film in 1949,in which JOHN WAYNE ages gracefully playing a character older than he was.In both films,JOANNE DRU,who had payed with JOHN WAYNE in RED RIVER shines.JOANNE was one actress who unfortunately never became a real star.I regret this,because she was wonderful.CHEYENNE AUTUMN was director FORD last major film.It is often dismissed among his films,but watching JAMES STEWART's cameo as WYATT EARP is very funny.It is a fact that STEWART once told FORD that he used him before the intermission,because he feared that people would leave before the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars FOR DUKE'S COLLECTORS, July 13 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
CHISUM and THE TRAIN ROBBERS may not be among WAYNE's best movies,but if you are a fan,you'll enjoy watching them like a did.CAHILL and McQ go in CLINT EASTWOOD's dirty HARRY's ways and fails because WAYNE was too old to go there.CHISUM uses the PAT GARRETT and BILLY THE KID's conflict as a parallel to the story.THE TRAIN ROBBERS has ANN-MARGRET fooling the guys with a twist ending.All in all,for the price,a good value for JOHN WAYNE fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars I WAS THERE, July 6 2014
I was at that show in august 1977 with 80,000 other fans.At that time,the visual aspects of rock shows did not benefit from having giant screen so i could barely see KEITH,GREG and CARL playing their songs.Like KEITH explains in the liner notes,they played TARKUS that night,even if it's not on the cds.I don't think that these recordings should have been released because the sound is not really good.However for collectors,this was special because after doing a dozen shows with a big symphonic orchestra,the group realized it was too expensive to do this on tour.I especially remember GREG singing C'EST LA VIE and LUCKY MAN.Like other popular groups of the seventies,it's better to release those discs that having them bootlegged.I still listen to EMERSON,LAKE and PALMER because they were my favorite progressive rock group.The critics never liked the group in general,but we fans did.Thanks for the memories ELP!

5.0 out of 5 stars SINATRA's lyric writer, June 10 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
SAMMY CAHN will forever be associated with FRANK SINATRA.He wrote almost 100 songs for him.Many of those songs served as titles of his albums.Curiously,even if FRANK recorded many of these songs for CAPITOL records,not one of his versions appears in this collection.It doesn't really matter, because the versions that are on this cd are also quite good.SAMMY CAHN wrote his songs with mostly three composers:SAUL CHAPLIN,JULES STYNE and JIMMY VAN HEUSEN

BOB HOPE made us laugh all his life.The least we can do is buy these 5 movies that are among his very best.I had already the first four ROAD movies with BOB and BING,and i am happy now that i have ROAD TO RIO and ROAD TO BALI.THE LEMON DROP KID is a pure entertainment that let's BOB have a field day;THE LITTLE SEVEN FOYS is hilarious and MY LITTLE BRUNETTE has BOB reuniting with DOROTHY LAMOUR.There is also a second collection of BOB HOPE movies by SHOUT.Don't make the mistake of buying volume 2.Volume 2 is for those who collect every movies that BOB made.No dud in volume 1.You can buy safely.

5.0 out of 5 stars There are 10 movies baby, June 10 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you except THE PRIDE AND THE PASSION and CAST A GIANT SHADOW,the remaining 8 movies are all watchable,and for the price asking,this collection is ring a ding ding.You have ravishing leading ladies like JILL ST-JOHN and RAQUEL WELCH;you have SINATRA trying to emulate BOGIE in two private eye flicks,one other cop movie;you have his best film:THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE;you have one leading lady who refused to marry FRANK:JULIET PROWSE and you even have two war movies.No,they can't hide this set from your sight.In 1968,THE LADY IN CEMENT was considered vulgar,but it's familiar territory now,and DAN BLOCKER of BONANZA has a lot of fun playing WALDO,a character that was far away from him.Get it!
