Hey film lovers! You've got less than 12 hours left at the time of this writing to go save 50% on Criterion Collection movies. Go get yourself a little something, because the escape of a good movie is just what the doctor ordered. Here are a few curios that grabbed me this time around.
They just don't make TV like this any more. I bought this set primarily for Rod Serling's Patterns, but also to enjoy the fine actors, and experience the novelty of an innovative TV era before my time.
I enjoy Robert Mitchum's acting, and since the description on this film claims it was one of the best performances of his career, I had to see if it was on par with his indelible performance in The Night of the Hunter, which is one of my favorite movies.
It seemed appropriate to have a tragic thriller on hand for times such as these.
I've been tempted to pick up this movie for awhile, but I wasn't sure about the whole comedic western idea. I had to give in for Dietrich and Stewart, and the clip I saw had me intrigued.
So, Criterion got me again. I didn't need more new movies, but I certainly am a sucker for the flash sale.
