'59 in review: films worth checking out

Burlesque beauties, pinup girls, vintage fashion, swanky suits, go-go boots, hairdoos,
cocktails, recipes, dancing, nostalgia and random retro lifestyle that a Space Age Atomic Age Bachelor might need to know about. Post War movies, television, broadway shows, music... exotica, lounge, cocktail, vocals, standards, space-age, swing, tiki, Modern Transportation, 1950s 1960s classic cars, monorails, scooters, trailers and trains, oh my...

Really! Off by a whole decade with your name, Mister Kap...Thornhill?
Pretty great lineup of movies there, I must say. I had no idea Leona Anderson was in 'House on Haunted Hill' - too bad it was a non-singing part.

So, what is there from 1969 that's worth catching? I went through a list, and except for The Bed-Sitting Room, The Italian Job, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, and Take the Money and Run, nothing I'd cross the street for.

A mistake, I have made.

As for 1969, I would throw out The Wild Bunch, True Grit, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, and Camille 2000 as keepers. Used to like Easy Rider but got over that. Haven't seen Bronco Bullfrog, The Castle of Fu Manchu, or Blood of Dracula's Castle but they look interesting. Not the most exciting year but I would keep it if only for the Wild Bunch.

Eve Kendall: You've got taste in clothes, taste in food.
Roger Thornhill: [necks Eve] Hmm, And taste in women. I like your flavor.

I'm surprised how many films i have seen from the 50's and 60's.
Too many memorable ones to list. I was 10 in 1970 without a theatre in
my small hometown. I did sneak out of bed on weekend nights and
watch tv with an ear bud. Obviously lots of late night films.

1969? I actually own this one. I bought the entire Elvis collection at a yard
sale. That's another subject titled 'I can't believe i watched this...'

(i did win a trivia contest recently using that title. Felt like an idiot screaming
out 'Change of Habit !!' in a roomful of dead dumb silence.)
