DEAD EYES OF LONDON 1964 (SINISTER CINEMA)

Fun little krimi film I finally got to see.

The film has a great plot involving very rich men who are being killed at an alarming rate. Their bodies are being dumped into the Thames river.

Inspector Larry Holt (Joachim Fuchsberger) is assigned to the case and he also discovers that all of the victims were heavily insured. There are a lot of twists and turns for Holt.

All of the corpses also have a clues attached to their bodies written in braille. Holt tries to piece together these clues and becomes involved with a young woman named Nora Ward (Karin Baal).

The main killer here is a grotesque man named Jacob Farrell (Ady Berber) who is someone you never forget once you see him. However, Jacob is killed late in the film by his unseen boss whom we discover later is the Reverend Paul Dearborn (Dieter Borsche), who runs a home for the blind.

This is a remake of the 1939 Bela Lugosi film "The Human Monster" and I think this is the better of the two. Edgar Wallace wrote the original story, of course and it moves along nicely. I found myself really absorbed in the film.

The print is in very good shape and while I am sure most of you have seen this film, for those that haven't, I recommend it.

TOP RELEASES OF THE YEAR

It's almost time again for my annual countdown of the top releases of the year.

It will be a much shorter list as most companies didn't release anything worth while and some were postponed.

It's been a crappy year and the releases show it. I usually start it the day after Thanksgiving, but this year the countdown will not begin until Dec. 19th.

There will be some surprises no doubt.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO...

Valli Kemp is 70, and Lorna Maitland is 77.

GIANT OF THE EVIL ISLAND 1964 (TUBI)

Fun muscle popper that I had never heard of.

Rock Stevens (aka Peter Lupus) stars as Pedro Valverde, a Spanish sea captain who is assigned to clean up Evil Island.

It seems that pirates, led by a thief and killer named Malik (Nello Pazzafini) have been raiding gold shipments and generally causing trouble and it can no longer be tolorated.

Valverde gets into a lot of sword fights, and they are very well staged. He has two women vying for his attention. One is an evil woman named Alma (Halina Zalewska) and the other is Blanca (Dina De Santis) a woman he can trust.

There is a lot of action in this film that was released directly to TV by American International Pictures. It is not boring by any means and even the fights between the sailing vessels is very well done for a film like this.

Lupus makes a great hero and he made a few more of these films before hitting it big in the US with the show Mission Impossible. I caught this on a streaming channel by accident and so I figured I'd check it out.

The other thing I have to add is that the film seems to be rather obscure and hasn't been talked about too much, which is a shame. If you're a fan of these kinds of movies, I recommend you check it out.

I LOVE CLEO MOORE

I watched a movie called "Over Exposed" a couple of nights ago and I hadn't seen it for almost 7 years.

Cleo Moore stars in this film as a young women who learns photography and soon ends up working in a high class nightclub in which a gangster is hiding out.

Seeing this again after so long a time was good because I have always been a fan of Cleo. It's a shame she never attained well nown stardom, but damn, she was a good actress and a great piece of eye candy.

Cleo was born in Baton Rouge, Lousiana in 1929 ( some sources say 1924). In 1948 she made an uncredited appearance in "Embraceable You" and had a good role in a film called "Congo Jim", but her career went nowhere.

After a few more small roles she atsrted being seen in films like "Hunt The Man Down" and the film noir classic "On Dangerous Ground". She started really getting noticed in films she made with Hugo Haas.

Those films included "Bait", "Hold Back Tomorrow" and "Hit And Run" which was her final screen appearance. She retired from acting in 1957 and married a real estate tycoon.

In 1973, just six days before her 44th birthday Cleo died of a heart attack. I think of her as one of the MOST attractive women to ever grace the movie screen and while I wish she had made more films all I can say is I love her entire body of film work and always enjoy seeing her in a film.

I think the world needs a Cleo Moore blu-ray set. If you haven't seen any of her films, you should.
