The Old Dark House Review


OK
William Castle "horror" movies don't get much more harmless than this, a simplistic and good-natured romp starring Tom Poston (of Newhart fame). Poston stars as an American in England, invited to visit an eccentric man's mansion, where other eccentric characters quickly find themselves killed. Goofy humor and really cheap fright gags abound. You'll forget it the moment it's over, though it should go without saying that you can never have too much Robert Morley in a movie.

The Americanization Of Emily Review


Good
Arthur HIller directed this oddball black comedy (script courtesy of the masterful Paddy Chayefsky), which turns out to have little to do with Emily (Julie Andrews) at all. Rather, the film captures a quirky navy admiral who's intent on having the first casualty at Omaha Beach be a sailor -- and he wants to capture it on film. Lt. Commander James Garner doesn't want to go, and all manner of hijinks ensue. James Coburn steals the show, and rescues it from dated, overblown oblivion.
