Comments on old movies from an old and passionate guy

"War of the Monsters" - Japanese Sci-Fi Fantasy Adventure
released on April 17, 1966

The Actors: Kojiro Hongo (Keisuke Hirata), Kyoko Enami (Kara), Yuzo Hayakawa (Kawajiri), Takuya Fujioka (Doctor Sato), Koji Fujiyama (Onodera), Akira Natsuki (Ichiro Hirata), Yoshiro Kitahara (Professor Amano), Ichiro Sugai (Doctor Matsushita), Bontaro Miake (Self-Defense Force General), Jutaro Hojo (Self-Defense Force Commander), Kazuko Wakamatsu (Sadae Hirata), Yuka Konno (Onodera's lover), Eiichi Takamura (Governor of Osaka), Kenichi Tani (Lee), Koichi Ito (Metropolitan Police Superintendent-General), Hikaru Hoshi (Awaji Maru Captain), Osamu Abe (Awaji Maru crewman)

Gamera vs Barugon

War of the MonstersAs our monster adventure begins we see a bit of footage from an earlier black and white monster adventure where the great monster Gamera is captured and put in a giant rocket ship bound for the planet Mars. Then we meet our hero and a handful of men who are headed to New Guinea to recover a giant opal jewel that one of the men hid in a cave on the island during the war. One of the men on the expedition is a bad guy . . . Onodera will try to kill the rest of the men and return to Japan as the sole owner of the giant precious jewel. What he doesn't know is that the giant opal is actually the egg of a monster that can kill by emitting a death-ray rainbow. Would it be giving away too much if I thought aloud that it would be great cinema and poetic justice if this fellow would be chewed and swallowed by the monster like a crunchy canapé? . . . O.K., then I won't think about that as I tell you more . . . So this bad guy gets athlete's foot on the way back to Kobe, and the ship's captain gives him an infra-red heat lamp to aim at his feet, which accidentally hits the giant opal/egg, which hatches a tiny monster that falls into the bay at Kobe as the ship sinks in flames. Soon the monster is destroying Kobe with his giant tongue that can freeze anything it aims at . . . c'mon now, no mother-in-law jokes here . . . Anyway, this demon dog monster can also emit a rainbow out of its butt that can also kill anything it touches . . . very cool stuff. This sequel to Gamera the Invincible brings the legendary monster back to the big screen in a small but significant part as the only creature in the universe that can destroy Barugon. This is also one of the only Japanese sci-fi monster flicks that doesn't use little children as the main characters, but instead gives us a beautiful island maiden and a handsome Japanese pilot who eventually fall in love. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.

Some of my Favorites:

William Powell and Carole LombardProbably my all time favorite movie, My Man Godfrey in 1936 not only gives us an comedic peek at the wealthiest and poorest during the Great Depression, but also was the vehicle for Carole Lombard to create the movie icon of the 'dumb blonde screwball comedy' that is a popular theme even today.

Barbara Stanwyck and Gary CooperMeet John Doe - 1941: The Frank Capra classic set in the Great Depression era that pits the common man against the political masters. You can't be a fan of old movies until you watch Frank Capra's old movies. This one premiered seventy years ago, and it still stirs our emotions and thoughts now. It is as timely as if it were produced today.

John Wayne and Gail Russell in Angel and the Bad ManAngel and the Bad Man - 1947: One of the great teachers of the Secret Law of Attraction is Dr. Joe Vitale . . . but before he was even born actor John Wayne paid for and produced this Cowboy Western that featured The Law of Attraction.

James Cagney in The Time of Your LifeThe Time of Your Life - 1948: James Cagney financed this strangely different feel-good movie, and he plays the part of Joe, a barfly that tries to live his life by making everyone around him better. I watch this one often, and try to become more like Joe every day.

Joe E. Brown in Painted FacesPainted Faces - 1929: Comedy legend Joe E. Brown is a circus clown in a surprisingly serious role as a juror in a Christmas week murder trial who tells the other jurors a story that will change their verdicts in a pre-code drama that could not have been made a few years later.

Cary Grant and Audry Hepburn in CharadeCharade - 1963: It doesn't get much better than Cary Grant and Audry Hepburn in a tale of death, deception, spies and lost wealth as a woman tries to sort out the good guys from the bad guys in this cold-war spy thriller love story.

Thanks largely to Ted Turner and his purchase of the movies from MGM, United Artists and pre-1950 movies from Warner Brothers, those motion pictures are not in danger if disappearing, and should live forever on the Turner Classic Movie cable television channel. Unfortunately many of the movies from smaller motion picture companies have already disappeared and become almost impossible to find and enjoy. Many of these movies are in the public domain, and without an 'owner' to preserve them are becoming more and more rare. This web site is a labor of love by one passionate old movie buff with the goal of sharing public domain movies with the world so that they can live on with new generations of fans. If you find an error or factual mistake, please use the contact page to let me know so that I can correct it for everyone else. This web site celebrates the efforts of every actor - not just the stars - because like a grand stew, each actor adds a unique flavor to the film, and without any of them the movie would not be the same. If you are one of these actors, or a friend or family member of an actor, please send me any anecdotes and stories that you know about any of them, and I will gladly add them to the site to enrich our knowledge about that actor or the movie they played in.
