    Crossroads to crime

    • Year Released: 1960
    Crossroads to Crime is a 1960 British crime film, the directorial debut of Gerry Anderson and the only motion picture of his production company, AP Films. Known for his "Supermarionation" television series of the 1950s and 60s (such as Thunderbirds) which subscribed to the science fiction genre and starred marionette puppet characters, producer-director Anderson accepted an offer from distributors Anglo-Amalgamated to shoot an hour-long, low-budget B film after development on Supercar encountered distribution difficulties. Anderson's first production to include live actors, Crossroads to Crime details the investigations of a police officer (Anthony Oliver) who, without support from his colleagues, confronts and brings down a ruthless vehicle hijacking ring in an undercover mission. Filmed predominantly on location in England from May to June 1960, Crossroads to Crime includes cast members who appear in later Anderson productions. It incorporates an instrumental score from composer Barry Gray who, along with other production personnel such as John Read and David Elliott, also continued their association with Anderson after the completion of the shooting.

    Cutthroat island

    Cutthroat island

    • Year Released: 1995
    Cutthroat Island is a 1995 action adventure film directed by Renny Harlin. The film stars Geena Davis, Matthew Modine, and Frank Langella. The film received mixed reviews from critics and was a major box office bomb: listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the biggest box office flop of all time. It was the last film Carolco Pictures produced before it went bankrupt. The film begins in Jamaica in 1668. After bedding and outsmarting a bounty hunter trying to arrest her, female pirate Morgan Adams (Geena Davis) hunts down her uncle and fellow pirate Dawg Brown (Frank Langella), who has captured her father, Black Harry (Harris Yulin), who has one of three pieces of a map to a huge stash of gold on a remote island called Cutthroat Island. Dawg has another piece, having stolen it from the corpse of a third brother, while a fourth brother, Mordachai (George Murcell), has the third. Dawg tries to force Harry to give him the map, but Harry refuses and escapes with Morgan's help, but not before being mortally wounded. Before dying, Harry reveals to his daughter the location of the map piece: on his scalp. After scalping her dead father for the piece, Morgan, now the captain of her

    In search of the castaways

    • Year Released: 1962
    In Search of the Castaways is a 1962 Walt Disney Productions feature film starring Hayley Mills and Maurice Chevalier in a tale about a worldwide search for a shipwrecked sea captain. The film was directed by Robert Stevenson from a screenplay by Lowell S. Hawley based upon Jules Verne's 1868 adventure novel Captain Grant's Children. The film was Mills' third of six for the Disney Studios. In company with her younger brother Robert (Keith Hamshere), and her elderly yet young-at-heart friend Professor Jacques Paganel (Maurice Chevalier), teenage Mary Grant (Hayley Mills) journeys to Glasgow to persuade the comically brave Lord Glenarvan (Wilfrid Hyde-White) to rescue her shipwrecked father, Captain John Grant (Jack Gwillim). The expedition sets sail and ventures halfway around the world, to both South America and New Zealand, respectively. The party suffers many assorted perils including an earthquake, a flood, a fire, an attack by a giant condor and an erupting volcano before finding and rescuing Captain Grant. A subplot involves a gunrunner named Thomas Ayerton (George Sanders), who is a treacherous former crew-member of Captain Grant's ship, and responsible for his disappearance.

    Rime of the ancient mariner

    Rime of the ancient mariner

    Rime of the Ancient Mariner is a 1975 film by director Raúl daSilva. It is a photoanimated-live action visualization of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem of the same name, featuring a direct reading given by renowned British actor Sir Michael Redgrave. DaSilva's film has won multiple awards and recognitions and has been said to effectively render the otherwise-difficult poem comprehensible by even the youngest of readers. Raúl daSilva's film introduces additional sensory perception elements to Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner by taking the poem, which was written in a faux-archaic (purportedly Elizabethan) form of English and visualizing it. This was accomplished with the help of Sir Michael Redgrave (who'd taught the epic poem as a young schoolmaster before becoming an actor) and with the additional use of sound and music to enhance, support, and illustrate the poem's dramatic and often difficult language. The Wikipedia article on photoanimation explains the technique used for this film. It is a time consuming, arduous procedure that includes the analysis and breakdown of the entire sound track and the planning of frame to frame exposure of all visual elements. Using the

    The assassination bureau

    • Year Released: 1969
    The Assassination Bureau Limited (released in North America as The Assassination Bureau) is a black comedy film made in 1969 based on an unfinished novel, The Assassination Bureau, Ltd by Jack London. It stars Oliver Reed, Diana Rigg, Telly Savalas, and Curt Jürgens and was directed by Basil Dearden. Whereas London's original novel was set in the USA, this film is set in Europe. In London, during the early 1900s, aspiring journalist and women's rights campaigner Sonia Winter (Rigg) uncovers an organization that specializes in killing for money, the Assassination Bureau, Limited. Thinking to bring about its destruction, she commissions the assassination of the bureau's own chairman, Ivan Dragomiloff (Reed). Far from being outraged or angry, Dragomiloff is amused and delighted and decides to put it to his own advantage. The guiding principle of his bureau, founded by his father, has always been that there was a moral reason why their victims should be killed — these have included despots and tyrants. More recently though, his elder colleagues have tended to kill more for financial gain than for moral reasons. Dragomiloff, therefore, decides to accept the commission of his own death

    You only live twice

    • Year Released: 1967
    You Only Live Twice (1967) is the fifth spy film in the James Bond series, and the fifth to star Sean Connery as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond. The film's screenplay was written by Roald Dahl, and loosely based on Ian Fleming's 1964 novel of the same name. It is the first James Bond film to discard most of Fleming's plot, using only a few characters and locations from the book as the background for an entirely new story. In the film, Bond is dispatched to Japan after American and Soviet manned spacecraft disappear mysteriously in orbit. With each nation blaming the other amidst the Cold War, Bond travels secretly to a remote Japanese island in order to find the perpetrators and comes face to face with Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the head of SPECTRE. The film reveals the appearance of Blofeld who was previously a partially unseen character. SPECTRE is both working on behalf of and extorting the government of an unnamed Asian power, implied to be Red China, in order to provoke war between the superpowers. It was announced during the Japanese location filming that Sean Connery would retire from the role of Bond; but Connery returned, after a hiatus, in Diamonds Are Forever and the
