in the Army that his six weeks of planned basic training has now stretched

is assigned to make a good soldier out of him. She requests Corporal Dolan
and Private Stan Wensalawsky to help with the training. Dolan and Stan
both have scores to settle with Bixby and their "guidance" leads to more
mishaps. Sergeant Pulley has them shipped out to Morocco. On leave
in North Africa, Bixy wanders alone into a bar, has a few Moroccan Delights,

Zita is THE girl for him. To protect him, Dolan tells him some lies about
Zita, and Bixby, in despair, joins the Suicide Division of the Foreign Legion.
He is kidnapped by a band of Arabian plotters and, guarded by the knife-happy
Abdul, is ordered to assemble a stolen American cannon. Zita learns of his
plight and gets Dolan and Stan to join her in a rescue mission.

The Sailor Who Fell from Grace
with the Sea
Starring: Kris Kristofferson & Sarah Miles
The story is about a fatherless adolescent boy who is himself very much like the sea. He is restless and calm and seemingly untameable. All the confusion and frustrations of adolescence are portrayed here in an honesty that no other movie has ever dared to show. The restless urge to be a grown up and to move on to a life of daring excitement, and the desire to find a philosophy and a poetry to which one can ascribe are all explored in an uncompromising way in this film. Desperate for an authority and leadership that he can look up to, the boy finds himself vying for the acceptance of a sadistic boy with a Nietzsche complex who uses a strain of hierarchy in his little band of friends in order to maintain control. Soon Kristofferson shows up and as he seems to be the stuff of oceanic legends, the boy finds a new hero to worship.
St. Benny the Dip

Salt & Pepper
Starring: Peter Lawford & Sammy Davis Jr.
The boys run a swinging nightclub in London's Soho district and also reluctantly double as secret agents. Their current assignment is to put the kibosh on a half-baked military officer, who plans to hijack a nuclear sub and hold England captive. The film is securely locked into the 1960s, with weird camera angles and out-of-focus optical effects, plenty of compliant young miniskirted damsels, and Bondlike action highlights.
Starring: Burt Reynolds, Angie Dickenson & Clint Walker
Sam Whiskey is an all-round talent, but when the attractive widow Laura offers him a job, he hesitates: he shall salvage gold bars, which Laura's dead husband stole recently, from a sunken ship and secretly bring them back to the mint before they are missed.

Starring: Lee Remick, Yves Montand & Bradford Dillman
Combining elements from William Faulkner's novel Sanctuary,
its sequel Requiem for a Nun and a stage adaptation of Requiem for a
Nun by Ruth Ford, director Tony Richardson's film set in 1920s Mississippi
and recounts the story of Temple Drake , a young lustful white woman who
falls for a man who rapes her, only to marry another when she is told that
her lover has died. The story is told as a flashback in an attempt to explain
what lead to the film's present in which a black maid is on trial for the
murder of Temple's baby.
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians
Starring: John Call, Pia Zadora & Leonard Hicks
One of the greatest cult films of all time! Martians,
upset that their children have become obsessed with TV shows from Earth which
extoll the virtues of Santa Claus, start an expedition to Earth to kidnap
the one and only Santa. While on Earth, they kidnap two lively children that
lead the group of Martians to the North Pole and Santa. The Martians then
take Santa and the two children back to Mars with them. Voldar, a particularly
grumpy Martian, attempts to do away with the children and Santa before
they get to Mars, but their leader Lomas stops him. When they arrive on
Mars, Santa, with the help of the two Earth children and a rather simple-minded
Martian lackey, overcomes the Martians by bringing fun, happiness and Christmas
cheer to the children of Mars.
Santa Fe Passage
Starring: John Payne, Faith Domergue, Rod Cameron & Slim Pickens
A disgraced scout guides a wagon train through hostile Kiowa country to Santa Fe and overcomes his prejudice towards Indians and accepts the love of a half-breed woman. Kirby Randolph is blamed for abandoning a wagon train that was later massacred but redeems himself as he saves another train from a stampede of wild ponies and Kiowa chief Satank's warriors, battling them at every bend in the trail. Randolph even gets a measure of personal revenge against the chief by partially scalping and disfiguring him in front of his tribesmen. There is the usual love triangle between Randolph, Jess Griswold and pretty brunette Aurelie St. Clair, but Randolph wins the maiden's hand at the finish. Utah's landscape nearly steals the film because of the beautiful vistas and high skies that mirror an artist's canvas. The pony stampede through a canyon is very effective and displays the beauty of the Wild West with the wagon train in harm's way.

Starring: Linda Blair, Larry Hagman, Verna Bloom, William Daniels,
Mark Hamill, Eric Olson & M Emmet Walsh
Yes, Sarah drinks. Drinks as though she has to,

In the late 1800's, an army captain tries to tame the open plains of Argentina which are dominated by Indians and bandits. To help do this, the captain brings in a party of women to keep his soldiers happy.
Starring: Donna Reed, Broderick Crawford &
Gripping story line fueled by some
heavy duty irony. Crawford plays a ruthless tabloid newspaper editor
who has the tables turned on him when he commits a crime, then finds himself
having to encourage his top reporter to get to the bottom of the story,
in order to deflect suspicion. Top notch suspense as Crawford gambles that
he can keep his cool and get away with it, even as the walls close in and
the odds look worse and worse. Crawford is at his no-nonsense, take no prisoners,
mince-no-words best, and able support from a young John Derek and Donna
Reed (smoking cigarettes and a little less squeaky clean than usual). Good

Sheriff of Fractured Jaw
Starring: Jayne Mansfield & Robert Moore
Lightweight fluff that derives most
of its humour from the incongruity of Moore's mild-mannered English tenderfoot
among the gunslingers, Indians and chorus girls of the Wild West. Though
the wedding line-up of Moore, Mansfield and the Indian Chief, complete
with war-bonnet, as Mansfield's "father" is one of the more bizarre sights
in the western genre.

Starring: Janet Gaynor, Lew Ayres & Will Rogers
This quaint, loving story set at
the Iowa State Fair springs from Hollywood’s deep feeling for its version
of rural America, and audiences returned the affection. This drew the
blueprint for the two musical versions that followed. Homespun philosopher
Rogers plays a farmer who has a chance for a blue ribbon with his prize
hog, Blue Bell; his wife, Dresser, has high hopes for her mincemeat recipe;
son Foster takes an adolescent shine to worldly trapeze artist Eilers; and
daughter Gaynor wins the heart of a newsman with a roving eye, Ayres. The
plot may be as simple as the desires of the characters, but the picture never
condescends, making this a warmhearted portrait of another time and place.
