Schlock Cinema

While the Getting’s Good This winter we hit the ground running with a set of films far, far under par and loosely linked by the idea that hasty exits are probably the best exits! First up we strike TV Land gold when Andy Griffith, William Shatner, Robert Reed and Marjoe Gortner star as ad execs playing dirt bike Deliverance in Pray for the Wildcats (1974). Next, Ray Milland takes on the titular role in Bulldog Drummond Escapes (1937), and gets caught up in a mystery involving a beautiful heiress and international espionage. In Narrow Margin (1952) Marie Windsor stars as a gangster’s widow taking a treacherous train ride to testify against the mob. Loosely based on a Noel Coward play, Easy Virtue (1928) is an early Hitchcock silent classic about a woman denied a divorce from her drunken, philandering husband because of her good looks. We close out the quarter with an early entry into the giant arachnid horror genre with The Black Scorpion staring Richard Denning, Mara Corday and featuring animation by King Kong creator, Willis O’Brien.
