LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: William A. Wellman. Dorothy Mackaill, Donald Cook, Ralf Harolde, John Wray, Ivan Simpson, Victor Varconi, Nina Mae McKinney, Charles Middleton, Clarence Muse, Gustav von Seyffertitz. Remarkably frank and adult pre-Code drama about prostitute Mackaill, who believes she's killed one of her johns and flees to the remote island of Tortuga where she can't be extradited. Unfortunately, the island is populated by every form of slobbering lech and pervert imaginable. Extremely seamy tale pulls no punches, right up to its shocking conclusion . . . but in some ways it's more astonishing than entertaining.

Gilda (Dorothy Mackaill) thought she had fallen as far as a woman could fall when she got a call telling her a client was requesting her services. But when the client turns out to be... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Frank Borzage. Joan Crawford, Clark Gable, Ian Hunter, Peter Lorre, Albert Dekker, Paul Lukas, Eduardo Ciannelli. Intriguing allegorical film of prisoners escaping from Devil's Island with Christ-like presence of Hunter. Not for all tastes, but there are fine, realistic performances and flavorful Franz Waxman score.

Through impenetrable jungles. Across perilous swamps. Desperate for a second chance at life, a band of Devil's Island felons and a tough-as-nails prostitute struggle toward freedom.... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Ernest B. Schoedsack, Irving Pichel. Joel McCrea, Fay Wray, Leslie Banks, Robert Armstrong, Noble Johnson. Vivid telling of Richard Connell's famous, oft-filmed story about a megalomaniac named Count Zaroff who hunts human beings on his remote island. Banks is a florid, sometimes campy villain. Made at the same time as KING KONG by many of the same people. Remade as A GAME OF DEATH and RUN FOR THE SUN, and ripped off many other times.

After their luxury cabin cruiser crashes on a reef, Bob Rainsford finds himself washed ashore on a remote island. He finds a fortress-like house and the owner, Count Zaroff, seems to... more

D: Dan Milner. Tod Andrews, Tina Carver, Linda Watkins, John McNamara, Gregg Palmer, Robert Swan. Monstrous tree rises from grave of native chief's son, causing terror in South Seas village. As walking- tree movies go, this is at the top of the list.

D: Allan Dwan. Dana Andrews, Jane Powell, Don Dubbins, Arthur Shields. Miscast, low-budget version of Herman Melville's Typee. Andrews is deserter from American whaling ship who finds love with native girl Powell on South Sea island; some minor uprisings by local cannibals for good measure.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Richard Brooks. Glenn Ford, Anne Francis, Vic Morrow, Louis Calhern, Sidney Poitier, Richard Kiley, Warner Anderson, Margaret Hayes, Emile Meyer, John Hoyt, Rafael Campos, Paul Mazursky. Excellent adaptation of Evan Hunter's novel (scripted by the director) of a teacher's harrowing experiences in N.Y.C. school system. Poitier memorable as a troubled youth. Hard-hitting entertainment. This was the first film to feature rock music--Bill Haley's "Rock Around the Clock" is played over the opening credits. Look for a young Jamie Farr (billed as Jameel Farah). Also shown in computer-colored version.

Glen Ford is riveting as a dedicated teacher whose idealism fades under the tensions that rip his classroom apart. Anne Francis and Sidney Poitier co-star. Direction: Richard Brooks... more
