‘Royal’ treatment

The Freemasons, Knights Templar and Scottish Rite are subjects of a documentary being shot in part in Guthrie.


Features

Mia Cantu
Freemasonry is the world’s largest and oldest fraternity, which some believe dates as far back as the construction of King Solomon’s temple in Jerusalem. It is based off the belief that every man is responsible for making the world a better place.

Grand Central Murder

Choo on this old-fashioned murder mystery.


Thriller

Rod Lott
As a showgirl, Mida King (Patricia Dane, Rio Rita) is likely used to lecherous comments and unwanted advances, but death threats are another story — this story, in fact.

While the Patient Slept

No catching Zs during this zing-filled mystery.


Thriller

Rod Lott
All the way back from 1935, While the Patient Slept begins with a logo stating it's a Clue Club Picture. Was that a regular picture-show "thing"? The Clue Club? Because if it was, I would've been a faithful follower, just based upon this good-natured mystery, recently released by Warner Archive.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood

What the Dickens? Murder, of course.


Thriller

Rod Lott
It's not often one sees the credit "completed by" in a film or TV series, but not many never-finished novels are even considered worthy of adapting to screen. However, most authors aren't the legendary Charles Dickens.

The House Across the Street / Homicide

More noir.


Thriller

Rod Lott
As if Warner Archive hasn’t re-released enough murder mysteries on MOD DVD lately, here’s another helping, pairing 1949’s The House Across the Street and Homicide on one disc overflowing with film noir. I gladly made room for it.

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.

The Phantom of Crestwood

She deserved it. Case closed.


Thriller

Rod Lott
From 1932, the mystery The Phantom of Crestwood may be one of Hollywood’s first gimmick flicks. That doesn’t make it any good, however.
