LOVE OF LIFE by Jack London
narrated by Orson Welles
This is a classical film of grim courage and determination in the best of the Jack London tradition. Filmed on location in Canada's Northwestern Territories, the film was directed by David Cobham and narrated by Orson Welles.
An American author, Jack London functioned best as a writer when dealing with individuals who have been isolated in a given back round. "Love of Life" is one example of his literary excellence. It is the story of how one man can endure in his quest for survival in the Klondike. Deserted by his partner after a successful search for gold, and surrounded by a hostile environment, Harry is faced with a life and death struggle. Stricken by the elements and crippled by a severely injured ankle, he fights the wilds of nature with an interminable desire to live. As he encounters wind, cold, wolves, and a dwindling food supply, the question of survival becomes the crucial dramatic event of the film. Harry hallucinates and momentarily loses hope, but his "love of life" pushes him on. Against all odds, he survives, but as London concludes, "The man would never be the same again".

This is witnessed by several sinister foreign agents, who kidnap Banks' daughter Nova Pilbeam to keep him from revealing what he knows: That a diplomat will be assassinated during a concert at London's Albert Hall. Unable to turn to the police, Banks desperately attempts to rescue his child himself, still hoping to prevent the assassination. The film's now-famous set pieces include the "Siege of Sidney Street" re-creation and the climactic clash of cymbals at Albert Hall, followed by the crucial scream of Edna Best. German film star Peter Lorre made his English-speaking debut here though he was still monolingual in 1934 and had to learn his lines phonetically. Written by A. R. Rawlinson, Charles Bennett, D. B. Wyndham Lewis, Emlyn Williams and Edwin Greenwood (an impressive lineup for a 75-minute film!), "The Man Who Knew Too Much" was remade by "Hitch" himself in 1956.-Information provided courtesy of  Hal Erickson

THE MAN ON THE EIFFEL TOWER
The film pits Georges Simenon's analytical Inspector Maigret played by Charles Laughton, against a wily murderer. We know virtually from the outset that the guilty party is Radek, played by Franchot Tone, a psychotic with delusions of grandeur who has been seduced into killing the wealthy aunt of slatternly Edna Wallace. Maigret suspects Radek , but without solid proof he must suffer the taunting and baiting of the beyond-the-law killer much like Columbo who would know who the murderer was but had to bide his time. Eventually Maigret wins the psychological battle, forcing Radek to seek refuge on the titular tower. And if you're waiting for that final fatal fall, this isn't that kind of movie.

Gable plays Ben Allison, who with his brother Clint (played by Cameron Mitchell) journeys to Montana in search of gold. They come upon wealthy businessman Nathan Stark (Robert Ryan), whom they try to rob of $20,000. Instead, Stark talks Ben and Clint into becoming partners with him on a cattle drive to Montana. As the group travels to Texas, they come upon a party of settlers being attacked by Indians. They save the saucy Nella Turner (Jane Russell) and she joins with Ben, who has been made trail boss, and Clint on the cattle drive. Ben and Nella are attracted to each other but after an initial fling, Nella rejects him -- Ben just wants enough money to buy a small ranch and Nella won't settle for slim pickings. Arriving in Fort Worth, Nella takes up with Stark, whose desire to make as much money as possible coincides with Nella's money-hungry ambitions. But when, at Stark's insistence, she accompanies him on the final trek to Montana, the seething friction between Ben and Stark erupts as the drive heads into dangerous Indian country.

FRANK BUCK in "TIGER FANGS"
Legendary big-game hunter Frank Buck brings 'em back alive once more in PRC's "TIGER FANGS". Though it is clear that he never journeys any farther than a studio backlot, Buck is in fine form as he takes on a gang of evil Nazi predators. It seems that the villains including Dan Seymor, having been plying Malayan tigers with drugs, making the beasts even more vicious than usual. Somehow this is tied in with a plan to deplete the Allies' wartime rubber supply. With the help of beautiful Linda MacCardle, played by June Duprez), Linda's father Geoffrey (played by J. Farrell McDonald) and handsome Peter Jeremy (Howard Banks), Frank Buck strikes a blow for Democracy-not to mention un-drugged tigers. Review by Hal Erikson courtesy All movie.com

CIRCUS FILMS for the family
pictures at left are for illustration only and not necessarily a scene from the films - original boxes only where noted

CIRCUS COMES TO TOWN
 Produced in 1937, this film pictures the traveling circus in the waning days of its glory --- days when it traveled from town to town by train---days when a parade down Main Street found every kid in the vicinity lined along the parade route hours before the quavering notes of the calliope heralded its approach. While some circuses still remain, most of them are simply shadows of their former greatness with attractions that crisscrossed the country every year. They no longer travel by train, but move by truck. And the parades---gone forever. This film shows things as they were back in the halcyon days of showmanship.

TIGER HUNT

A Castle Films animal-adventure film produced by Saul Turell and Paul Killiam with research by William K. Everson.  The tiger is the most destructive of all the cats. A native of Asia, usually it is associated with the steaming jungles of India and Malaya. This tiger hunt is in a much different setting; Siberia. In the early spring when the snow is only knee deep a group of hunters are out to capture a LIVE tiger for circus training. They encounter other creatures such as a deer, an otter, a leopard, who also must be taken alive. The only weapons used are forked sticks ad their skills. They catch the beast without harm then continue on for their main objective. One of the dogs picks up the scent! The hunters come across a half-eaten wild bear killed by a tiger. The final shot is of the tiger jumping through hoops  in a circus when it had formally been free. Are we next Mr. President?

He suggests that Martin read it and says that he will be visited by the Lord the next day. Martin encounters several people the next day whom he shows kindness to without realizing he has turned into a good loving Christian in a Scrooge-like reformation.

TOYLAND ADVENTURES
( original title "A Toytown Tale" Van Bueren Studios (Jan 4, 1931)
  The setting is a toy store after hours. A rather primitively drawn stick figure mouse is exploring the various toys in the store. He looks rather coincidentally like Mickey Mouse (the allegedly owned property of Uncle Walt's company)
   He lets another mouse in that wears a ribbon bow around the neck so I guess it's his girl friend! (At least Minnie wore a dress once in a while!) Together they play with the various toys like a roller coaster. A prowling cat who looks like he hasn't eaten anything in months prowls after the mice and they engage toy soldiers to combat the menace. The mouse then sings "Good night Sweetheart" on a toy piano to her.   
  Titles are generic so no way to tell what company released this cartoon, though Official Films may have been the original distributor of this cartoon on the home movie and rental markets. Thanks to Bruce Dodd for original title information!

There are a lot of guns in Westerns and action movies such as those shown on this page. Some used for bad and some used for good.
We have a real life "high noon" approaching us.

Flanked by Hollywood director Andrew Niccol, advocates from ControlArms, SaferWorld, and the International Action Network on Small Arms, IANSA, hosted a cocktail party at the United Nations headquarters building, followed by a viewing of Niccol’s 2005 film, “Lord of War.” - NewsMax

I repeat “to impose legally-binding United Nations controls over small arms and personal firearms”.

Ok, so let’s start from the top. You think that the United Nations should be the supreme law of the land and not our United States Constitution. You want “gun control” on personal firearms even though the Second Amendment clearly states “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”. You don’t want to amend the Constitution through the procedure given to repeal the second amendment but rather have the right just taken away by some third party.

So when you don’t believe in what defines us as “Americans” how can you consider yourself one? A little too much rum in the punch I suspect. Taking guns out of the hands of the citizens doesn’t make them safer. What it does do is allow the government controlled army to subdue them that much easier. Perhaps you lefties might want to actually read the founding fathers you claim to agree with so vehemently a little more closely?
