He will endure the macabre House of Hell. Fight for his life before a cheering arena throng in the Ordeal of Fire and Water. And rescue the princess again as they flee the realm's volcanic doom. Welcome to Atlantis, the Lost Continent, where royal guardsmen wear uniforms that could easily be from the wardrobe of Ming the Merciless and where some unfortunate slaves are turned into bovine-headed beasts. Yes, that kind of movie: popcorn-worthy and spearheaded by legendary fantasy film producer George Pal (The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine)."
Chubasco (1967)—"After assaulting a cop during a beach party blowout, teen rebel Chubasco (Christopher Jones) gets two choices: do time for the crime or join the crew of a high seas clipper and face the inherent risks of commercial fishing. Choosing the latter and before boarding ship, Chubasco elopes with girlfriend Bunny (Susan Strasberg) and then finds himself on a tuna boat skippered by the one man who'd rather see him dead: Bunny's irate father Sebastian (Richard Egan). When Sebastian learns his new deckhand's identity, tensions rise with the tides - and only one man may return to Bunny's waiting arms." Doberman Gang/The Daring Doberman (1967)—"Here's howl the crimes go down. After a bungled bank job, a clever con realizes he needs a new gang. So he teams with Baby Face Nelson, Bonnie and Clyde, Dillinger, Ma Barker and Pretty Boy Floyd. They're not people; they're The Doberman Gang dogs, trained to avoid human error and pull off the perfect bank heist. In the sequel The Daring Dobermans, the law can't find those four-legged thieves, but three pals hoping to pull off a daring heist do, using sound waves to call the dogs. The dutiful Dobies are soon in training for another bold caper, one that will take them up a high-rise elevator, into offices, across rooftops, down a laundry chute and into a waiting van. Do they pull it off? Sit...stay...watch!" Inside Out (1975)—"Telly Savalas, Robert Culp and 50-year screen veteran James Mason star in this tense, action-packed heist caper. A high-rolling con man, an ex-jewel thief and a former German concentration camp commandant concoct an elaborate scheme to recover a gold shipment hijacked by the S.S. in 1941. It hinges on "removing" a member of the Nazi high command from West Berlin's fortress-like Siegfried Prison. Then, to jog the inmate's memory, he'll be taken to a chilling recreation of German headquarters (complete with a bogus Hitler) in a converted air-raid shelter - across the Iron Curtain." Operation Daybreak (1975)—"The mission: Assassinate SS Obergruppenfuehrer Reinhard Heydrich, the diabolical murderer William L. Shirer called "the genius of the Final Solution." Directed by Lewis Gilbert (The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker), written by The Pianist Academy Award winner* Ronald Harwood and filmed where the real events occurred, this taut thriller stars Timothy Bottoms, Anthony Andrews and Nicola Pagett as brave Czechs who defy their German invaders." The Power (1967)—"Who has The Power? The Power to control minds, move objects, and murder by telekinesis? That's what scientists at a space lab want to know when they realize they are targeted by one of their own - someone who possesses a superhuman power and a terrifying secret agenda."
They Came To Rob Las Vegas (1967)—"Casino dealer Tony Vincenzo knows how to figure the odds, and he figures the job he's planned is close to a sure thing. He knows about the route and the security measures taken to protect an armored car hauling cash from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. He knows no one will find the car after he's detoured it off the road and into a specially constructed subterranean desert vault. And yet he doesn't know enough. Gary Lockwood, Elke Sommer, Lee J. Cobb, Jack Palance and classic caper star Jean Servais (Rififi) are the marquee lights in this tale of a heist as improbable in execution as it is fun to watch." NEW DOCUMENTARIES, ART, MUSIC & OTHER NON-FICTION FARE All Boys—" In the wake of cultural events like the Velvet Revolution and the fall of the Berlin wall came the rise of a newfound adult film industry in Eastern Europe. Since then, Czech actors in gay erotica and sites like Bel Ami have risen to iconic status. Markku Heikkinen's revelatory documentary All Boys shows us both sides of this nascent industry, which can be interpreted as either a sign of sexual liberation or as the exploitation of disenfranchised young men." Am I Black Enough For You—"Drakes Avenues Pictures presents this full-length feature film detailing the sensational story of soul superstar Billy Paul. Am I Black Enough For You tells the in-depth story of the legendary Philadelphia R&B artist, his life-long companionship with his wife Blanche, and details the oppression of African Americans and the continuing American civil rights movement. Taking its title from the follow-up to Paul s most successful single, "Me and Mrs. Jones", Am I Black Enough For You offers never-before-seen insight into the now legendary Philadelphia R&B scene which produced some of the most successful songs/albums in modern popular culture. Its candid portrayal compels the viewer to comprehend the experience of racism in America... Featuring Billy Paul, Blanche Williams, Kenny Gamble, Clive Davis, Questlove, & Schoolly D." Back to the Garden—"In 1988, filmmaker Kevin Tomlinson filmed & interviewed a group of back-to-the-land "hippies"—living off-grid, insulated from mainstream culture. In 2006, he tracked down his subjects again to find out what had become of their families' utopian plans and dreams. This film captures a time-lapse view of these back-to-the-landers and shows that what seemed a fringe movement of extremes in the 60's was actually a prescient foretelling of the green revolution." Leon Blum: For All Mankind—" This powerful documentary tells the story of Leon Blum - a Jew who served as prime minister of France, and who was also a prisoner of the Nazis at the Buchenwald concentration camp."
From Dawn Till Dracula: The True History of the Vampire—"From Dawn Till Dracula tells the story of the emergence of vampirism from its religious beginnings to its personification under various names, none of them as renowned as that of Dracula. In the course of investigating this power from beyond the grave, we look at an event that captured the headlines in the 1990s, where vampire hunters invaded London's most famous graveyard in an endeavor to lay the undead to rest." Great Epochs of European Art—"This 4-disc set features ten complete programs, all illustrated by selected masterpieces of architecture, sculpture and painting and are filmed on location throughout Europe. The programs cover classical art and sculpture from the Romans and ancient Greeks, Christian, Byzantine and Gothic art, the great Baroque and Rococo eras, the trends of the 19th and 20th centuries, and more." Make Me Young—"In Make Me Young: Youth Knows No Pain, an age-obsessed daughter of a plastic surgeon (filmmaker Mitch McCabe) takes a journey through America's $60 billion a year anti-aging world. In this Alice-in-Wonderland tale, McCabe spends two years traveling across America visiting doctors, experts and lives with a cross-section of characters from Minnesota to Texas who've gone to varying lengths to "beat the clock." Interwoven with these stories are the filmmaker's own self inquiry and memories of growing up around her father -- a Vietnam War trauma surgeon turned small town plastic surgeon. As the film chronicles the rise of the Anti-Aging industry through regular Americans, it hints at a nostalgia for a more innocent time when plastic surgery was used primarily for reconstruction in a pre-Botox era, to paint a funny, but troubling portrait of a country that desperately needs to stay forever young." Robert Motherwell & The New York School: Storming the Citadel—"This program, made shortly before Robert Motherwell's death in 1991, is an exploration of the Abstract Expressionist movement and a portrait of one of its last survivors. Having come to New York in the early 1940s, Motherwell found himself on the battleground of American art. He and a group of painters set out to change the face of American painting. The film charts this epic battle led by Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Franz Kline and Robert Motherwell, who endeavored to make American painting equal to painting elsewhere and, in the process, shifted the center of modern art from Paris to New York." Nightmares in Red, White and Blue—"Horror and sci-fi veteran Lance Henriksen (Alien, Near Dark) takes you through a fascinating look at the history of the American horror film, examining the earliest monster movies of the silent era up to the scariest modern-day masterpieces. Highlights include interviews with genre masters Roger Corman, John Carpenter and George A. Romero, plus clips from classic films like The Exorcist, Night of the Living Dead, Friday the 13th, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, Hostel, Rosemary's Baby and many more!" The Oath—"From the director of the Oscar-nominated My Country, My Country, The Oath is a spectacularly gripping documentary that unfolds like a great political thriller..." Prehistoric Park—"Join zoologist and wildlife expert Nigel Marven as he travels back in time to capture the most amazing creatures ever to exist. Step into the hostile climates of the Cretaceous, Pleistocene and Paleozoic time periods, learn what killed these incredible creatures as Marven brings them back to the most incredible zoo never to exist, Prehistoric Park." The U: ESPN's 30 for 30 series—"Throughout the 1980s, Miami was at the center of a racial and cultural shift taking place throughout the country, and the University of Miami football team served as a microcosm for this evolution. A predominantly white university, the school's image was forever changed when coach Howard Schnellenberger scoured some of the toughest ghettos in Florida to recruit mostly black players for his team. With a newly branded swagger, inspired and fueled by the quickly growing local Miami hip hop culture, these Canes' took on larger-than-life personalities and won four national titles between 1983 and 1991. Filmmaker Billy Corben, a Miami native and University of Miami alum, tells the story of how these "Bad Boys" of football changed the attitude of the game they played, and how this serene campus was transformed into 'The U.'" Wimbledon: 2010 Official Film—"The 124th Championships, a Royal tournament thanks to the first visit to the All England Club by Her Majesty the Queen for 33 years, was also a record-breaking occasion in many ways, most notably in that unforgettable first round men's singles between John Isner of the United States and France's Nicolas Mahut, which smashed every existing record in the sport..."
