Saturday Night at the Movies 5/24/14!

Who cares what picture we see?

I gots to know if Albert Popwell does...so while I check this is the pick for tonight...

I first saw this one on VHS - and even smooshed into a pan and scan horror - the gritty brilliance of Don Siegel's cop drama still shone through. Taking the real life Zodiac Killer and morphing him into Scorpio (Andy Robinson) - then pitting him against world weary Harry Callahan - sheer bliss for an action junkie.

I have this one ready to spin on a correctly ratio-ed disc - and we could be counting Harry's shots any time - even tonight...if you feel lucky...well, do ya?

Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!


  1. Hi Craig - When you get a chance (if you haven't already) check out Don Siegel's The Lineup from 1958 with Eli Wallach as a psycho hit man who's after a misplaced shipment of heroin in San Francisco. Great stuff ! Plus with Robert Keith (who as Wallach's partner jots down the last words of his victims) and Richard Jaeckel as the alcoholic wheel man.

    1. I haven't seen that one - but man I want to now! Thanks for the heads up!

  2. oho! My fave cop Clint Eastwood cop thriller next to Magnum Force!

    I actually prefer MF but seeing the Scorpio killer squeal like a girl when stabbed was just priceless! (plus I love the Zodiac reference!)
