At the last minute, I hopped on this limited-time-only sale from the great Warner Archive service, which makes older movies available to order. It’s a great, fun way to catch up on (or discover) titles which fall outside of the quote-unquote canon. I’ve got a growing stack of Warner Archive titles, and that continues today.
As an excuse to post some beautiful old-fashioned movie poster art, I’ll share the four titles I ordered today, and include the brief descriptions of the movies, which should make it immediately clear why I had to have them in my library.
HICKEY & BOGGS (1972)
THE STONE KILLER (1973)
A new breed of anti-hero appeared in 1970s cinema. Obsession, violence and instability characterized these protagonists, regardless of what side of the law they were on. “Stone Killer” is underworld argot for these particularly cold-blooded and ruthless characters and New York detective Torrey (Charles Bronson) is just such a man.
VIGILANTE FORCE (1976)
You’ll hear about these movies from me again, somewhere down the line. Count on it.
