CULT OF THE COBRA (1955). Decent Universal with lots of future TV actors witnessing a "secret" ceremony and of course, one of them does what he shouldn't and the result is a curse put on the rest of the group. ***

Not as good The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1965) but a decent watch.

Brides of Dracula

Even though it's not Christopher Lee as Dracula, I still love this movie.

THE LAND UNKNOWN (1957). Although I've always had a fondness for Dinosaurs meeting humans, this is hard going and it doesn't help that budget was too small to at least have decent dinos liven up the script. **

le Carre film adaptations

The Deadly Affair (1966)



Directed by Sidney Lument & starring James Mason; The Deadly Affair was based on le Carré's first novel Call for the Dead (1961). It was more like a detective drama/thriller than an espionage tale.

The Most Dangerous Game (1932)
6/10



Description: "An insane hunter arranges for a ship to be wrecked on an island where he can indulge in some sort of hunting and killing of the passengers."

Overall, this film struck me as much too melancholy. One would expect this theme to produce an exciting film, but the thrills were few are far between.

Also, the actors didn't seem to connect. They were strangers blown together in plot, of course, but the film devoted a lot of time to dialogue without evoking genuine emotion or accessible personalities.

There's a very humorous shot, were the camera slides down a line from a balcony to a closeup of the evil Zaroff (Leslie Banks). The closeup is fine, it just takes a slow bumpy ride to get there.

But there are also wonderful shots of the leads, Joel McCrea and Fey Rey, running throw the jungle; including a POV shot through the brush. Made me wonder if they were possibly the first of their kind.

A fine choice if you're looking for a simple interesting story with a slow delivery.
