Beauty and brawn

Pinot Noir comes in two distinct styles, and the brawny one may be for those who don’t think they like Pinot.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
Sometimes oversimplifications are good, and in the case of Pinot Noir, reducing the varietal to two distinct styles is helpful: fruit baskets and brawny, big boys.

The Red House

Come and knock on our door. We've been waiting for you.


Thriller

Rod Lott
When Meg (Allene Roberts, Union Station), the adopted daughter of wooden-legged farmer Morgan (the legendary Edward G. Robinson), convinces him to hire her platonic pal, Nath (Lon McAllister, The Story of Seabiscuit), at the staggering rate of 50 cents an hour, things look like a win-win for all parties.

Flareup

Raquel-a-go-go!


Thriller

Rod Lott
Raquel Welch never quite landed on the A list, but not for a lack of trying. It's just that so many of her projects (Bedazzled, One Million Years B.C., Fathom, Myra Breckinridge, et al.) required little more of her than her assets. At least she shakes those with the best of them as a go-go girl on the go — and on the run — in 1969's Flareup, fresh from the MOD ovens of Warner Archive.

Dark Crimes

How to kill 3,640 minutes of time wisely.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Mill Creek Entertainment’s budget pack of noir, Dark Crimes, strongly goes against the notion that films in the public domain are there because they aren't any good. That’s nonsense.

D.O.A.

Twenty-four hours to live, in 96 minutes or less.


Thriller

Rod Lott
A guy walks into a police station to report a murder: himself! With that setup, one could make a tight, terrific crime film — and D.O.A. is that movie ... in 1950. The 1988 remake doesn't fare as well, but at least it's been preserved on Blu-ray by Mill Creek Entertainment.
