Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957)

Scientists become trapped on a shrinking island with intelligent, murderous giant crabs.

Laughably low-budget sci-fi silliness (especially the monsters are quite ridiculous), but entertaining for what its.

Halliwell (no star): "Bottom-of-the-barrel monster mayhem from this tongue-in-cheek producer; now a cult."

Maltin**: "Interesting early Corman thriller is hampered by low budget - and some very silly monsters - but Charles B. Griffith's script has many ingenious ideas."

Michael Weldon/Psychotronic: "One of Corman's delightful little science-fiction co-features."

The Telegraph Trail (1933)

A greedy businessman-turned-renegade foments an Indian uprising against the coming telegraph to perpetuate his economic stranglehold on the territory.

Mediocre Western with some humor and the usual shoot-outs with villains and Indians.

Halliwell (no star): "A lacklustre Western, with action scenes lifted from the silent The Red Raiders made seven years earlier, though Wayne does get to wear a rather fetching fringed jacket."

Maltin**: "Lesser-grade Warner Bros. B Western."

Angie Everhart

Yves Saint Laurent (2014)

A look at the life of French designer Yves Saint Laurent from the beginning of his career in 1958 when he met his lover and business partner, Pierre Berge.

Tasteful and accomplished attempt to portrait the great fashion designer in all his complexity is mostly successful, thanks also to Pierre Ninney's excellent performance and a good supporting cast.

The barges lay on the darkness of the still canal, their lines softened by the snow heaped in pillows and hummocks on their decks.
