Maniacal Movie Poster Monday #140!

Blue Hawaii  (Paramount, 1961)

I've only ever seen parts of a couple of Elvis movies - and as a legend and icon he's certainly been absent from this blog - but here we'll rectify with a Presley poster. I really do mean to sit down with one or two of these one of these days - his movies were hugely popular, and I need to see what all the fuss was about!

The Lady in Red  (New World Pictures, 1979)

This is an unsung gem from the New World days - with Julie Corman producing a John Sayles script with director Lewis Teague. It's also got a score from later Oscar winner James Horner! That right there makes this one worth a watch - and then that triples when I mention that the cast also includes an unbilled Robert Forster (Jackie Brown)! I wish I was watching it again right now! If I lay eyes on it in the video vault anytime soon - I will be!

Fury on Wheels  (aka Jump)  (Cannon Releasing Corp., 1971)

I haven't seen this one - but I worked with Collin Wilcox-Horne twice - and she was a wonderful woman - so this movie gets a recommendation for that alone!

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


  1. "Lady in Red" sounds like my kind of girl! Minus the gin and bullets.

    1. Aw, why not go with the gin and bullets? Who knows where that might lead?
