3rd DVDTalk Action/Adventure/Crime/Mystery Challenge List Thread March 1st - 31st '14

3rd Annual DVDTalk Action/Adventure/Crime/Mystery Challenge




Dates: Sunset on February 28th to sunrise on April 1st.

We have two at least slightly overlapping Challenges this year, so plan those days accordingly if you wish "double credit". What you watch from dusk on March 30th to dawn on April 1st could also count for the annual April B-Movie/Exploitation Challenge. And the first couple days of March will crossover with the annual Academy Award Challenge.

Rules: Sorta like all the other Challenges but as lenient as you can imagine. Everything counts as one: film, TV episode, short, trailer, DVD featurette, etc. Unofficial goal of hitting 100, but don't ignore real life to hit it. Everyone who shows up in either thread is an equal "winner". Anything listed on IMDB with a genre of action, adventure, crime, or mystery (or anything that even vaguely could be argued as should be listed as such) counts.


Checklist is now pretty much official, but only in the discussion thread to make editing mistakes easier. link

Prizes: I am looking for sponsors, and would appreciate any help or leads in that area. I'm hoping for at least our consistently fantastic GoldenWheels and Hamilton Books. I am also going to donate at least one DVD from my expanding "doubles" corner. Everyone who actively participates will get one prize entry in the raffle. Active participation is defined as posting at least once in the discussion thread, and keeping your list post updated. Anyone who completes the optional and fairly simple checklist will get an extra chance in the raffle. Anyone who agrees to mail out an appropriate prize will get an extra chance as well.

This is the list thread. Please have only one post in this thread.

February 28
01. Hell and High Water (1954)*
An international crew uses a refurbished WW2 Japanese submarine to investigate a suspected atomic base on an island in the northern Pacific. Directed by Samuel Fuller. Good action kind of sabotaged by an awkward romance and somewhat stock characters. One outstanding sequence involves a sub vs. sub confrontation.

March 01
02. Gaiking Movie 1 (1976)*
An alien race whose planet is being pulled into a black hole invades Earth using giant robots so that they can use it as their new home. Compilation of five episodes (1-3, 21, 22) from the original series. I've read that production company Toei made these films as a means to export the series. Pretty good giant robot action but not much new here. The dub is adequate but kind of bland. Robot fans should take a look.
03. Dr. Mabuse the Gambler: The Great Gambler (1922)*
Part one of the epic film about super criminal Dr. Mabuse - psychologist, scientist, hypnotist, master of disguise, and supreme strategist. Long but absorbing, set in decadent Germany of the 1920's Mabuse uses his skills to control the son of a wealthy industrialist. He is eventually opposed by a state prosecutor.
04. Missing in Action (1984)* (Action 3 Pack)
Chuck Norris being Chuck Norris invades Vietnam and rescues some American MIA prisoners. Good and plentiful action scenes. M Emmet Walsh adds some humor and humanity.

March 02
05. The Black Camel (1931)* (Charlie Chan Vol. 3)
Earliest surviving Warner Oland Charlie Chan film features Bela Lugosi, a small part by Dwight Frye, and Robert Young's first credited movie role. Typical Chan plot with some location filming in Hawaii and nice use of light and shadows. Comedic foil is lower ranking Japanese detective in police department. All the Chan elements are there but haven't slipped into polished routine yet. Very interesting and very good.
06. Commentary* for The Black Camel with Ken Hanks and John Cork.
07. Dr. Mabuse the Gambler: Inferno (1922)*
Exciting conclusion to the Dr. Mabuse saga. Lots of action and the accompanying music really shines. Some serial like traps and escapes. Recommended.
08. War-Gods of the Deep (1965)*
Derivative lost world story about century old survivors living in an even more ancient city under the sea. Even Vincent Price can't really help an occasionally plodding script. Some set and costume designs are pretty good but you don't really see enough of the city.
09. M Squad (1958): The Shakedown* S:1 E:19 (M Squad The Complete Series)
Very strong episode even if the solution to the mystery is pretty obvious early on.
10. Sea Hunt (1959): Dock Fire* S:2 E:13 (Sea Hunt The Complete Season 2)
Extra exciting story has Mike Nelson helping to fight a huge fire on the docks. Really good stock footage of 1950's fire fighting equipment in action.
11. Harbor Command (1957): Fisherman's League* E:5 (Harbor Command The Complete Television Series)
Series about a law enforcement organization concerned exclusively with the waterfront area of a city. It has a bit of the flavor of Highway Patrol and was also produced by Ziv Television which did a lot of my favorite shows in that era. Star Wendell Corey lacks the sheer energy of Broderick Crawford but the show is still entertaining, especially when they call in a Coast Guard cutter or gunboat for help.

March 03
12. Dr. No (1962) (Sean Connery 007 Collection Volume 1)
Basic Bond and very entertaining. There's almost a low budget vibe here and it's very subdued compared to later entries. These are not necessarily bad things.

March 04
13. Hidden Agenda (2001)* (Lionsgate Action Collection)
Dolph Lundgren plays the head of a private company providing a witness protection type service. OK action film but very confusing at times since some dialog is very hard to make out and some key points rely on subtleties of the service which is vaguely explained at best. Basically techno babble moves us from point to point. One I realized that, watching this became a lot more fun.
14. Micky Spillane's Mike Hammer (1958): The High Cost of Dying* S:1 E:1 (The Complete Series)
My first peek at this set. A dying prisoner asks Mike to save his kidnapped wife using holdup money hidden away for years. My image of Mike Hammer, both from the couple of novels I have read and the later TV series, is of a beefier, tougher looking man but Darren McGavin does a good job.
15. State Trooper (1956): Meeting at Julia's* S:1 E:3 (The First Season)
Rod Cameron stars as Rod Blake, investigator for the Nevada State Troopers. Kind of an odd story of Rod tracking down three men who killed a man during a payroll robbery. This show hasn't grabbed me as much as the others I've mentioned -- I'm not sure why. It's good but just missing a little something.

March 05
16. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2014): T.A.H.I.T.I.* S:1 E:14 Recorded off TV

March 06
17. Rescue 8 (1958): The Ferris Wheel* S1: E1 YouTube
Wes and Skip are a rescue team, part of the LA Fire Department. I remember liking this show when I was a kid and it still holds up pretty well. This week they had to rescue a couple of men buried under rubble at a demolition job and people trapped on the creakiest ferris wheel in the world which was stalled and threatening to tip over. I was surprised there was some human interest thrown in since I wouldn't have cared for that when I was a wee one.
18. The Base (1999)* (Lionsgate Action Collection)
An Army major goes undercover at a south-western Army base to weed out a corrupt squad of soldiers who are working with Mexican drug lords. Nothing was really awful but everything could have been much better. Sometimes you just want a dumb, kind of bad action movie after a rough day at work. This was that kind of day and this movie fit perfectly.

March 07
19. Cyclone (1987)* (Action Packed 4 Movie Marathon)
After an inventor is murdered, his girlfriend tries to deliver his latest creation, a super combat motorcycle, to the proper authorities. This needed more action and what there is, isn't all that great. Lots of well know actors promise more than the movie delivers. Humor is of the dumb kind.

March 08
20. Getter Robo (1975): Musashi! Angry ocean!* E:44
21. Getter Robo (1975): Escape from the universe graveyard* E:45
The Getter team, who can combine their jets to form three different giant robots, continues the fight against the subterranean Dinosaur Empire. The must fight a giant snail robot dinosaur and then find themselves trapped in the Sargasso of Space. Good stuff.
22. Alienator (1991)* (Action Packed 4 Movie Marathon)
An alien hunter/killer in a ridiculous costume pursues a fugitive who has fled to earth. Good cheesy fun - I liked this better than Cyclone which was also directed by Fred Olen Ray. The acting isn't always so good and the action could have been more exciting but at least it was plentiful. B movie legend Robert Clarke has a nice part.
23. Missing in Action 2: The Beginning (1985)* (Action 3 Pack)
Story of how Col. Braddock was captured and eventually escaped from the prison camp in Vietnam. Good buildup as we get to know the characters, good and evil. Exciting action scenes and several good explosions along with some fairly brutal scenes.
24. Black Widow (1954)*
A man tries to evade the police while trying to find out what happened to a young woman found dead in his apartment. A familiar situation but well done by some classic Hollywood stars. The solution to the mystery is not a huge surprise but overall fairly engrossing.
25. Micky Spillane's Mike Hammer (1958): Just Around the Coroner* S:1 E:2 (The Complete Series)
Clever story about a con artist. Darren McGavin is growing on me as Mike Hammer. He showed his physical prowess this episode and plays a ladies' man very well

March 09
26. Charlie Chan in Shanghai (1935)* (Charlie Chan Vol. 1)
Charlie searches for the murderer of an old friend who was killed while standing next to the detective. Very good series entry, with nice cinematography and an almost spy movie vibe.
27. Arson, Inc. (1949)* (Forgotten Noir Collector's Set Series One)
Robert (Batman) Lowery plays a fireman who goes undercover to expose an arson/insurance racket. Fast moving B movie with some good action and nice use of interesting fire fighting stock footage.
28. Arrow (2014): The Promise* S:2 E:15 Recorded off TV
One of my favorite shows just seems to keep getting better.
29. The Lost World (1960)
Irwin Allen film about an isolated plateau where dinosaurs still exist. Wow, this is much better than I remembered it to be. Best lizards in makeup ever, some great scenery and sets, and a very exciting finish.
30. M Squad (1958): Dolly's Bar* S:1 E:20 (M Squad The Complete Series)
Interesting and satisfying half hour story about a murdered gossip columnist.
31. Sea Hunt (1959): The Persuaders* S:2 E:14 (Sea Hunt The Complete Season 2)
Mike vs. drug runners in this exciting episode which also featured a really cool amphibian plane.
32. Harbor Command (1957): Frightened Witness* E:6 (Harbor Command The Complete Television Series)
Racketeers intimidate pier watchmen. The location shooting at the port of San Francisco really adds a lot to this show.

March 10
33. Gamera vs. Barugon (1966) R2 DVD
Gamera escapes his space bound trap, returns to Earth and has a couple of run-ins with the lizard-like Barugon. Picks up right after the first film is over. The big problems here are that the film is kind of slow, there isn't that much monster on monster action, and, for me at least, Barugon is kind of a lame monster. On the other hand I liked the buildup to Barugon and the fact that the puny humans had a couple of almost effective plans to take out the lizard. I have real mixed feelings about this one but I have to say it's interesting at the very least.

March 11
34. Felony Squad (1968): Bed of Strangers* S:2 E:16 YouTube
OK story about a man on the run after he accidentally killed his wife's lover. Decent mix of drama and police action.
35. The Avengers (1964): Mandrake* S:3 E:18 (The Avengers '64 Set 1) VHS
Steed and Gale (odd to be not typing Peel here) investigate the death of one of Steed's former colleagues and uncover a sinister enterprise. Not bad at all. There are many of the elements here that would become more pronounced in the later shows including good chemistry between Steed and Gale.
36. Soldiers of Fortune (1955): The Runaway King* S:1 E:3 (The Complete Series)
Stud muffin Tim Kelly and cynic Tuobo Smith are adventurers for hire. Here they go to a tabu Pacific island searching for a MIA pilot from WW2 on behalf of a Charlie Chan look alike. I thought writer Barry Shipman's name was familiar and indeed he co-wrote a bunch of serials including several Republics and the last Flash Gordon as well as quite a few adventure and police show of this era.

March 12
37. Felony Squad (1967): Debt of Fear* S:1 E:30 YouTube
Good story about the desk sergeant, Dan Briggs (played by Ben Alexander of Dragnet fame), getting involved with an extortion plot aimed at his old partner. Other regulars include Sam Stone (Howard Duff), the world weary cop with a soft heart, and Jim Briggs (Dennis Cole), Sam's younger, kind of bland, partner. Jim is Dan's son.
38. Dragnet 1968 (1968): The Big Gambler* S:2 E:27 Me-TV
Friday and Gannon (Harry Morgan) investigate embezzlement at a small manufacturing firm and finish with a public service announcement about uncontrollable gambling.
39. Adam-12 (1970): Log 25 -- Indians* S:3 E:9 Me-TV
Malloy and Reed break up a protection racket and then stop a fight to the death between two Native Americans.
40. Emergency! (1976): Not Available* S:6 E:2 Me-TV
The crew helps out a heart attack victim, a woman who fainted outside a store, an injured man trapped in a car, and an inmate trapped on a ledge while trying a jail break.
41. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2014): Yes Men* S:1 E:15 Recorded off TV

March 13
42. Everglades! (1961): Clay Island Murders* E:7 YouTube
Lincoln Vale (Ron Hayes) is a member of the Everglades County Patrol and helps keep the peace in the swamp. Both acting and script struck me a just a bit below par compared to other shows I've been watching but I love those airboats and there is some good swamp footage. This episode had strong elements of "old dark house' movies and I admit, I guessed wrong as to who the culprit was.
43. The Criminals (1976)* R3 DVD
Shaw Brothers anthology film with three stories with different casts and directors, all supposedly based on true stories and some even filmed at the actual locations of the crimes. Hidden Torsos has a strong horror movie feel to it with a killer chasing a women and her mute daughter. Valley of the Hanged was a bit steamy and concerned an extramarital affair. The Stuntman was a rise and fall gangster story about a part time stuntman at the Shaw Brothers studio becoming a pimp and then moving up in the local gang. I suspect there were some nods and in-jokes during the few movie making scenes that I totally missed. Good stuff but nothing outstanding.

March 14
44. Dragnet (1952): The Big Cast* S:1 E:5 (Mill Creek Best of TV Detectives)
Friday and his partner grill a murder suspect. Excellent, extremely intense show with a fine performance by Lee Marvin as the suspect and a good use of closeups.
45. Dragnet (1952): The Big September Man* S:1 E:11 (Mill Creek Best of TV Detectives)
Very interesting police procedural concerning the brutal death of a secretary. Barney Philips played Friday's partner in both episodes and I thought he did a very good job. This one included Fatima cigarette commercials.

March 15
46. Gaiking Movie 2 (1976)*
Disappearances and UFO sightings all over the world herald the second invasion attempt by the Zelan Empire. The dub seemed a little flatter this time and it struck me that maybe building a spaceship in the shape of a dragon is not the best idea. Consists of episodes 25, 9, and 12-14.
47. The Base 2: Guilty As Charged (2001)* (Lionsgate Action Collection)
A military intelligence office is sent undercover to a base in Montana to investigate a secret tribunal responsible for the deaths of many soldiers. Not as much a sequel as a remake with a similar setup but a different crime with a few scenes that are almost copied from the first film. Lots of action, maybe more than in the first.
48. Death Warrant (1990)*
Jean-Claude Van Damme is a cop who goes undercover in a prison to find out why many inmates have been murdered. Lots of exciting action, a predictable plot, and a grand finale that really strains willing suspension of disbelief, even in this challenge.

March 16
49. Charlie Chan in Egypt (1935)* (Charlie Chan Vol. 1)
Charlie investigates the murder of an archeologist who discovered a lost tomb in Egypt. Very good series story. Stock footage and well chosen sets help the feeling of being there. Stepin Fetchit provide the comic relief.
50. The Real Charlie Chan Featurette* on Charlie Chan in Egypt DVD
Overview of the life of Chang Apana, the rough and tumble, whip wielding Honolulu police detective who was the inspiration for Charlie Chan.
51. The Land Unknown (1957) (The Classic Sci-fi Ultimate Collection Vol. 2)
Four members of an Antarctic expeditioni discover a prehistoric world when their helicopter malfunctions. Fun but not always terribly exciting. Good mix of dinosaurs and effects using live lizards, models, and a guy in a t-rex suit.
52. The Last Dinosaur (1977)* WB Archive Collection
An earth boring machine accidentally discovers a prehistoric world in the middle of the Arctic. Starts out very strong with lots of cheesy dinosaur goodness but the last half gets too darned talky for its own good. A little disappointing.
53. The Lost World (1925)
This is the real thing. An excellent movie with some of the most wonderful dinosaur creations ever.

March 17
54. Loan Shark (1952)* (Forgotten Noir Collector's Set Series One)
George Raft plays an ex-con hired by the president of a tire plant to investigate a loan shark racket targeting the employees. Standard crime story competently done. John Hoyt is good as one of the baddies and Russell Johnson (the Professor) has a minor role.
55. Dragnet (1952): The Big Phone Call* S:1 E:12 (Mill Creek Best of TV Detectives)
Another show focusing entirely on the interrogation of a suspect. This is truly a three person show and takes place in one office at the PD. This time Friday and Jacobs have all the evidence they need and just want to get a signed statement. Not nearly as involving as the Lee Marvin episode but still kind of interesting.

March 18
56. Somewhere In the Night (1946)*
A man wakes up in a hospital with amnesia and only a few clues to his real identity. He finds only trouble as he searches for his past. I usually enjoy this plot and this movie is no exception although not nearly the best of its kind. Star John Hodiak seemed a little bland to me and a few things still didn't make sense once the film was over. Richard Conte and (especially) Lloyd Nolan provided strong supporting roles.
57. Micky Spillane's Mike Hammer (1958): Hot Hands, Cold Dice* S:1 E:3 (The Complete Series)
Kind of a lighthearted story finds Mike passing out in New York and waking up in Las Vegas.

March 19
58. Soldiers of Fortune (1955): Pearls Off Dondra Head* S:1 E:11 (The Complete Series)
Action packed episode starts off with a fist fight worthy of a Republic serial and includes a fight with a giant octopus. Director John English co-helmed some of the best of the Republic serial output. Character actor Larry Dobkin seems to be turning up all over the place. He was in Loan Shark a couple of days ago and also in a Felony Squad I watched, which he also directed.
59. State Trooper (1956): Jailbreak in Tonopah* S:1 E:4 (The First Season)
An short tempered man gets thrown in jail for carrying a gun without a license and his wife and friend try to break him out. Of the four episodes I've seen so far this is the best. Jack Kelly guest starred.
60. Lethal Weapon 3 The Director's Cut (orig-1992)* (4 Film Favorites - Lethal Weapon)
Riggs, Murtaugh, and other friends old and new try to find out how weapons that were confiscated by the police department are ending up back on the street. Very entertaining. Good action, funny lines, and just enough character stuff. I liked this one better than I liked LW 2.
61. Decoy (1957): To Trap a Thief* E:4 (Mill Creek Best of TV Detectives)
The story of policewoman Casey Jones of the New York City Police Department. Supposedly based on true stories with the names and places changed for "obvious reasons". I know Beverly Garland, who plays Officer Jones, from movies like It Conquered the World and The Alligator People but it turns out she did a huge amount of TV from the 1950's through the early 2000's. This episode was about the owner of a loan company who said that the amount of money taken in a holdup was much more than the police recovered. All in all a good, interesting story.

March 20
62. Arrow (2014): Suicide Squad* S:2 E:16 Recorded off TV
63. Decoy (1958): High Swing* E:25 (Mill Creek Best of TV Detectives)
Officer Jones goes undercover to investigate a hold-up ring. Kind of a strange story but quite good.
64. Harbor Command (1957): The Assassin* E:7 (Harbor Command The Complete Television Series)
The FBI has information that a passenger on an arriving ocean linear will be assassinated and it's up to the Harbor Command to foil the plot. Very exciting with a good build up of tension but the climax is a little bit flat. Another episode where location filming adds a lot. Wendell Corey is starting to grow on me.

March 21
65. Rescue 8 (1958): Danger! 20,000 Volts* S:1 E:13 YouTube
Kind of a convoluted, coincidence filled story with the main rescue involving a train wreck, high tension wires, and a unmanned power station. Only OK. Mislabeled as Dangerous Salvage.
66. On the Borderline (2001)* (Lionsgate Action Collection)
A somewhat dim-witted young couple traveling to California in involved with a gang who smuggler illegal immigrants. Not a whole lot of action but kind of an interesting story although acting never rises much above mediocre.

March 22
67. Space Sheriff Gavan (1982): A Parting of Love and Sadness - The Final Blow* E:14 R2 DVD
Gavan, a member of the Galactic Union Patrol is sent to Earth to protect it from the evil Makuu Empire which is out to conquer the universe. He is able to summon a metallic battle suit equipped with a laser sword and other weapons and has several vehicles at his disposal.
68. Ultraman Leo (1974): Be A Man! Burn With Passion!* E:6 R2 DVD
Dan Moroboshi (Ultraseven), although seriously injured and no longer able to transform, is now a captain of the Monster Attacking Crew and mentor to the latest Ultra being. Dan and Leo (in human form) often train together and we see a lot of that in this episode.
69. Kamen Rider V3 (1973): Terrifying Commandant: Doctor G!* E:13 (Special Edition DVD Box Set)
V3 defeats Magnet-Boar but the battle allows the evil and mysterious Dr. G to enter Japan. A very exciting episode left me wanting to see more.
70. JAKQ Movie (1977)*
J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai was the second sentai series and this was a short movie version of one of the series' episodes (E:7 8 Supercars!! Super-Speed, 350 km/h which involed the evil Crime organization attempting a bank robbery using a new, secret explosive. Pretty good action and some really nice looking sports cars.
71. Kamen Rider V3 (1973): Secret Memento of the Double Riders* E:14 (Special Edition DVD Box Set)
72. Kamen Rider V3 (1973): Rider V3's Deadly Weaknesses* E:15 (Special Edition DVD Box Set)
Dr. G takes command of Destron Japan and V3 must battle Toad-Boiler and Burner-Bat in order to protect the secret of his four weaknesses. I couldn't resist more V3 and these two episodes wrapped up a story arc.
73. The Boss (Il Boss) (1973)* (Raro Video Fernando di Leo Crime Collectioin)
A hitman finds himself getting more and more involved with mob politics during a war between Mafia Dons. Very well made film explores mob conflicts and official corruption. Full of betrayals and double crosses.
74. Queen of Outer Space (1958)
A space ship, on a routine mission to a space station, is attacked and diverted to the planet Venus. Whew. Starts out strong but once we get to Venus the cheese really cuts in. Costumes and props recycled from Forbidden Planet and Flight to Mars, space ship flying and crashing sequences from World Without End. Can Zsa Zsa Gabor act at all? She mainly poses in this film.

March 23
75. Charlie Chan's Secret (1936)* (Charlie Chan Vol. 3)
Charlie Chan investigates the murder of an heir to a large fortune who suddenly reappeared after beign missing for several years. Mysticism and a spooky house full of secret passages add to the fun.
76. The Testament of Dr. Mabuse (1933)*
Dr. Mabuse is in an insane asylum but a criminal empire flourishes using a master plan buried in his crazed writings. Is Mabuse behind it all or is someone just using his outline? Excellent film. It grabs you from the very beginning and never lets go. Full of stunning visuals and clever plot twists, it also has an exciting finale. Simple thrilling.
77. Dragnet (1952): The Big Casing* S:1 E:13 (Mill Creek Best of TV Detectives)
A man claims that his wife shot herself right before his eyes. Friday and Jacobs aren't so sure. Nice, detailed police procedural.
78. Decoy (1958): The Sound of Tears* E:27 (Mill Creek Best of TV Detectives)
A great opening narration: This is the 22nd Precinct. Some people call it "The Jungle Patrol." In this place where rowboat rides lead to safe harbors, the only crime committed should be a stolen kiss. There were no kisses in the park that night - unless you want to count the kiss of death. Story concerns a man found shot in the park. We learn a bit about Casey's past and why she became a cop. Not hard to guess who really done it but still a very good episode. Suzanne Pleshette plays one of the suspects.
79. M Squad (1958): Lover's Lane Killing* S:1 E:21 (M Squad The Complete Series)
A woman says her date was killed in a robbery on an isolated road. Ballinger investigates. Another totally absorbing episode. Directed by Robert Altman. I never knew he did so much television.
80. Sea Hunt (1959): Nerve Gas* S:2 E:15 (Sea Hunt The Complete Season 2)
A diver locates a WW2 Japanese submarine and shortly after he surfaces begins to act violently insane and then collapses. Another exciting underwater adventure. Leonard Nimoy played the diver.

March 24
81. Phantom of the Jungle (1955)* VHS
Ramar of the Jungle searched for an archeologist missing in the jungle, finds him, loses him, finds him and other stuff happens including an exploding volcano. Compilation of three TV episodes made into a feature film. Not really based on a three part story, but three linked episodes. Nice use of just enough stock footage. Directed by Spencer Bennet.

March 25
82. Soldiers of Fortune (1955): Jungle Search* S:1 E:12 (The Complete Series)
Tim and Toubo head deep into the Indian jungle searching for a crashed plane that was carrying some rare and much needed medicine. A killer tiger is also lurking in the area. Solid episode. Tim and Toubo seem a bit edgier, a bit more mercenary this time out. I liked it.

March 26
83. They Were So Young (1954)* (Forgotten Noir Collector's Set Series One)
Young women working for a modeling agency in Rio quickly discover they are expected to provide more personal services to certain wealthy clients. A mining engineer tries to help a new arrival escape from this fate. Kind of flat, not much real excitement. Even Raymond Burr could help push this above fair but I was really burned out when I watched.

March 27
84. Dragnet (1952): The Big Seventeen* S:2 E:4 (Mill Creek Best of TV Detectives)
Friday and new partner Frank Smith (Herb Ellis) try to put a stop to a sudden increase in teenage crimes caused by new drug dealers in a once nice neighborhood. Maybe just a bit of speechifying by Joe but more than one good Friday zinger to put things into perspective. Very entertaining and in the style I associate with the B&W shows.
85. Arrow (2014): Birds of Prey* S:2 E:17 Recorded off TV

March 28
86. Naval Commandos (1977)* R3 DVD
In 1937 six Chinese naval officers try to destroy a Japanese battleship based in Singapore. All star Shaw Brothers cast and lots of action including martial arts, gun play, and explosions. Well done.
87. The Golden Sword (1969)* R3 DVD
A skilled student of the martial world searches for his missing father but finds a wife instead. On his wedding day he is abducted by the same black garbed figures who his father was last seen with 10 years ago. Not as confusing as some tales of the martial world but the story does meander quite a bit and does drag a little. My favorite part was the beginning when our hero is searching in the snowy northern frontier and first meets his wife to be. The action sequences were, like the movie, good but not great.
88. Braddock: Missing In Action III (1988)* (Action 3 Pack)
Braddock returns to Vietnam after finding out that his wife, who the thought was dead, is really still alive and he has a son there as well. Extreme mayhem follows. Almost a parody at times. Loaded down with a bunch of kids and a priest, he still manages to lay waste to a good hunk of the country but the action scenes can't be faulted.
89. Nick Carter Master Detective (1939)* (WB Archive Collection)
Nick Carter is called in to investigate espionage activities at an aircraft plant where a new type of wing is being developed. Nifty little mystery with a decent amount of aviation action. Walter Pidgeon is smooth and energetic as Nick Carter.
90. The Sheriff of Cochise (1957): Bank Robbery* S:1 E:23
The sheriff tries to solve a series of bank robberies. There's a nice bit of police work done in identifying the suspects. John Bromfield plays Sheriff Frank Morgan with just the right amount of swagger. I remember the opening to this show from my kid days because I thought it was so cool that he had a rifle on the inside of the front door of his car.
91. Harbor Command (1957): Counterfeit Money* E:8 (Harbor Command The Complete Television Series)
Two counterfeit twenties are found when police break up a craps game. Baxter investigates. Good episode but nothing special.

March 29
92. Gaiking Movie III (1976)*
Made up of episodes 17, 24, 35, 43,and 44 this covers the third Zelan invasion and the final battle, which was very very good. I also liked the final revelation about the Emperor and the political situation on the planet Zela, On the other hand the good guys were captured too often due to stupidity and were too easy to mind control.
93. Space Sheriff Gavan (1982): Phantom? The Demonspace City* E:15
In his street identity Gavan takes a sick girl to her home and then has to battle a series of strange foes. An action packed episode, a tour de force for star/stuntman Kenji Ohba who I think did at least most of his own stunts. I'm not sure why this all happened; maybe it had something to do with the little girl's fever dreams. Even the final battle with the monster of the week seemed extra exciting.
94. Ultraman Leo (1974): Who Is It? Taking the Lives of Flowers* E:7
A very bizarre monster - think giant artichoke with two stumpy legs with a head between the legs and a propeller on top of the body! Whew! We also get lots of anti-boomerang training. Dan M. continues to be cranky and a very hard taskmaster. Now that I'm getting the hang of this series I'm beginning to enjoy it very much.
95. JAKQ vs Go Ranger Movie (1978)*
Crime forces from around the world gather in Japan and it takes two teams of heroes to defeat them all. Lots of action in this theatrical short. Also cameos by Kamen Rider V3, Kamen Rider Amazon, and the android Kikaider.
96. The Devil-Ship Pirates (1963)* (Icons of Adventure)
A band of Spanish pirates convince an isolated village that the Spanish Armada defeated the British Navy and that they are part of an occupying force. Exciting if mostly land based pirate adventure.
97. Eraser (1996)* (4 File Favorites Extreme Action)
Arnie plays a US Marshall who gets involved in an international conspiracy and government corruption while trying to protect a witness in a treason trial. Some parts cross into absurdity but there are a few good laughs and lots of mindless fun.
98. State Trooper (1956): The Hills of Homicide* S:1 E:5 (The First Season)
A house trailer with two dead bodies inside is found in the middle of the desert. An intriguing mystery but the solution isn't totally satisfying.
99. Micky Spillane's Mike Hammer (1958): Death Gets A Diploma* S:1 E:4 (The Complete Series)
A friend asks for Mike's help after she discovers that her son's girl is involved with a gangster. McGavin and the writers capture Hammer perfectly in this episode -- persistent, tough, and cold as ice when he has to be. Great episode.

March 30
100. Charlie Chan At the Circus (1936) (Charlie Chan Vol. 2)
Charlie investigates the murder of a circus owner who had many enemies among the performers. OK entry didn't grab me as much as the others I've watched this month. The solution was more far fetched than usual. We do get to see the entire Chan clan at the circus including the hard working Mrs. Chan.
101. The Postman Fights Back (1982)* R3 DVD
Four men are hired to some chests to a powerful warlord in Northern China and various forces try to stop them. Kind of has a spaghetti western vibe at times. Lots of good fights with a wide variety of foes and weapons and in different situations. Very satisfying.
102. M Squad (1958): The Frightened Wife* S:1 E:22 (M Squad The Complete Series)
Ballinger is searching of a man who has been missing for a month when the man's wife suddenly confesses to murdering her husband. Good mystery but maybe a little too clever for its own good.
103. Decoy (1958): Night Light* E:31 (Mill Creek Best of TV Detectives)
Casey investigates the theft of a ruby necklace by pretending to be a potential buyer. A bit more of a drama than usual. Guest starring Martin Balsam.
104. Sea Hunt (1959): Strange Salvage* S:2 E:6 (Sea Hunt The Complete Season 2)
Mike helps a police detective investigate the seemingly accidental deaths of two divers.

March 31
105. Dragnet (1952): The Big .22 Rifle for Christmas* S:2 E:7 (Mill Creek Best of TV Detectives)
A boy opens one of his presents early without permission and tragedy follows. A really sad, well done episode. Jack Webb does some fine acting in this one.
106. Ursus in the Land of Fire (1963)* (Mill Creek Warriors 50 Movie Pack)
Ursus of the shepherd people fights an usurper in order to free his people and to return the rightful princess to the throne. Ed Fury is beefy and likeable as Ursus but the princess is more useless than usual, often loosing some clothing (although never enough) to allow the bad guys to follow. There are some really cool sets with a giant face motif. The action is just OK and the plot is pretty typical as is the English dub. The picture has OK color but is seriously cropped on both side with a background hum in the soundtrack but is is watchable.
