LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Bert Gordon. John Agar, John Hoyt, June Kenney, Scott Peters. Low- class shocker about mad dollmaker who shrinks people; good performance by Hoyt, otherwise predictable and amateurish.

Being toyed with, the puppets launch an attack, and suddenly their captor finds he'd better stop playing - and start praying - because these miniature moppets are hellbent on... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Nathan Juran. Kerwin Mathews, Kathryn Grant (Crosby), Richard Eyer, Torin Thatcher. Top-notch adventure/ fantasy pits hero Sinbad against unscrupulous magician (Thatcher) who has reduced Princess Grant to miniature size. Good pacing, eye-popping special effects by Ray Harryhausen (including famed duel with skeleton), music score by Bernard Herrmann. A winner all the way.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: George Pal. Russ Tamblyn, June Thorburn, Peter Sellers, Terry-Thomas, Alan Young, Jessie Matthews, Bernard Miles. Excellent children's picture with Tamblyn as tiny tom thumb, taken in by kindly couple but exploited by villainous Terry-Thomas and henchman Sellers. Charming Puppetoons sequences, Oscar-winning special effects, perfect Peggy Lee Sonny Burke score. Filmed in England.

Taken in by a kindly couple, a six-inch-tall boy takes on a pair of comical crooks in this adaption of a classic Grimm fairy tale. Oscar and Golden Globe-winner Russ Tamblyn ("Peyton... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: George B Seitz. Lionel Atwill, Irene Hervey, Raymond Walburn, Stuart Erwin, Ann Loring, Louis Hayward, Wallace Ford, Bernadene Hayes, Harvey Stephens, J Carrol Naish. A great group of character actors portray a plane-load of disparate types who make a forced landing on a ranch owned by ruthless financier Atwill, just as he is being held hostage by fugitives. Entertaining potboiler mixes melodrama and comedy quite nicely.

D: Delmer Daves. Bette Davis, John Garfield, Joan Leslie, Robert Hutton, Dane Clark, Janis Paige; many guest stars including Joan Crawford, Ida Lupino, Barbara Stanwyck, Eddie Cantor, Jack Carson, Eleanor Parker, Alexis Smith, S. Z. Sakall. Amiable all-star silliness set in Hollywood's real-life haven for WW2 servicemen, featuring cofounders Davis and Garfield. Hutton plays G.I. with a crush on lovely Leslie. Best bits: Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet; Jack Benny and violinist Joseph Szigeti. Roy Rogers introduces "Don't Fence Me In,'' later reprised by the Andrews Sisters.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Edward Dmytryk. Ginger Rogers, Robert Ryan, Ruth Hussey, Patricia Collinge, Mady Christians, Kim Hunter, Jane Darwell. Rogers and friends live communally while their men are out fighting the war, a situation that caused this Dmytryk Dalton Trumbo collaboration to be labeled as Communist propaganda by HUAC in later years. Some unbearable--and ironically, pro- American--speechifying, but occasionally fascinating as social history.

D: Frank Launder, Sidney Gilliat. Eric Portman, Patricia Roc, Gordon Jackson, Anne Crawford, Megs Jenkins, Basil Radford, Naunton Wayne, Irene Handl, Brenda Bruce. Memorable depiction of ordinary people coping with war. Roc is an airplane-factory worker during WW2, rooming in nearby hostel with women from varied social classes. Boasts realistic approach sorely missing from SWING SHIFT 40 years later.
