Barbara Stanwyck and Walter Huston are at their fierce finest in master Hollywood craftsman Anthony Mann�s crackling western melodrama. In 1870s New Mexico Territory, megalomaniacal widowed ranch-owner T. C. Jeffords (Huston, in his final role) butts heads with his daughter, Vance (Stanwyck), a firebrand with serious daddy issues, over her dowry, choice of marriage, and, finally, ownership of the land itself. Both sophisticated in its view of frontier settlement and ablaze with searing domestic drama, The Furies is a hidden treasure of American filmmaking, boasting Oscar�nominated cinematography and vivid supporting turns from Judith Anderson, Wendell Corey, and Gilbert Roland.
Partly conceived as a follow-up to Prince of Foxes, 20th Century-Fox's The Black Rose, reunites the earlier film's two stars, Tyrone Power and Orson Welles. Filmed on location in England and Morocco, the story concerns 13th-century Saxon nobleman Walter of Gurnie (Tyrone Power), who, after sparking an unsuccessful rebellion against the Norman conquerors of his homeland, sets out to seek his fortune in the Far East. In the company of his friend Tristam (Jack Hawkins), Walter makes the acquaintance of megalomanic North African warlord Bayan (Orson Welles). Journeying farther, Walter and Tristam arrive in China, where they are treated with deference--so long as they never try to leave. Eventually escaping his Chinese hosts, Walter returns to his native country. Previously renounced by King Edward (Michael Rennie) because of his role in the a Saxon rebellion, Walter is welcomed back with open arms because of all the cultural and scientific wonders he's brought back from China (including gunpowder). The "Black Rose" of the title is the beauteous Maryam (Cecile Aubrey), with whom Walter fell in love while both were the prisoners of Bayan. A bit lacking in terms of spectacular adventure sequences, Black Rose scores points on its star power and splendid Technicolor photography.
This glorious colour sci-fi classic from 1950 won the Academy Award for best special effects. Almost two decades before Neil Armstrong's "small step", cinema audiences were able to witness what such a lunar mission would be like. An American tycoon finances a rocket to take man to the moon. Despite propaganda against the mission, it goes ahead successfully - but will the brave astronauts make it back to Earth? Adapted from the novel Rocketship Galileo by Robert A. Heinlein, author of Starship Troopers.

Miles and miles of stock footage were used to pad out the 67-minute running time of Forbidden Jungle. The newly-shot scenes feature Don Harvey as famed explorer Tom Burton, who has been hired to locate the long-missing son of a millionaire. The boy has grown up in the jungle a la Tarzan, and is currently living in an area where white men are forbidden to travel. This doesn't stop Burton, though he does have second thoughts about returning the boy to civilization, especially since the kid seems perfectly happy right where he is. Virtually all the "wild animal" scenes in Forbidden Jungle were culled from earlier films, save for several comic interludes involving a trio of monkeys (no, not Curly, Larry, and Moe).
