Hands of the Ripper (1971)

Apart from the opening credit sequence, the London settings of the late 1800’s and the ample cleavage shown on actress Marjie Lawrence one would be hard pressed to connect this film with the famed Hammer studios that gave birth to the second cycle of horror films and made star commodities out of Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. 494 more words

Freebie and the Bean (1974)

For this loud cop film in the buddy buddy genre we are treated to the off beat pairing of James Caan and Alan Arkin.

Richard Rush of The Stunt Man fame directed this film which must have served as a template to the car crashes that John Landis featured to death in The Blues Brothers. 545 more words
