In The Balcony
Four New Balcony Reviews this Week!

Olive Films offers four brand-new Blu-ray/DVD releases this week, and we’ve got reviews up of all four of ‘em for you, three from Republic Pictures and one from Allied Artists. Follow the links for our reviews!

In chronological order…

Academy Award™ nominee Richard Dix (from Minnesota) stars as one of history’s most famous Texans (from Tennessee) in Man of Conquest, a Republic ‘A’ picture from that golden year of 1939.

Errol Flynn was free from Warner Bros. after all those years and wrote(!) and starred in a film that turned out to be a delightful surprise, The Adventures of Captain Fabian (1951). Hint: Vincent Price steals the picture.

Meet Rear Admiral John Hoskins, disabled in WW2 but devoted to his Naval career and intent on captaining the ship he’d ben promised. Sterling Hayden stars in The Eternal Sea, 1955, and be glad you’re not married to THIS guy.

Well, in the 1950s we Americans knew we had Russkies and Martians to fear, which is what makes Hell’s Five Hours (1958), the tale of a homegrown terrorist, powerful. Vic Morrow is the troubled psycho, and Stephen McNally and Colleen Gray stand between him and the destruction of an entire town.
