STAN GETZ & CHARLIE BYRD - Desafinado (1962) Full-Length and Highest Quality!

Stan Getz is glimpsed briefly playing jazz in Battery Park in James Glickenhaus' cult action classic THE EXTERMINATOR (1980)

Here is one of his best loved tracks:

The "Desafinado" single was a Top 20 hit in 1962; however, with it you hear only about one-third of the complete track. Here's the entire piece, and in the b...

Marvel's Black Widow - Official Trailer (2021) Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour

When I saw TENET in 70mm last year during August - and that all-too brief reopening of cinemas, the previous trailer to this was shown and the excitement was palpable.

Here is the new official one just released - and a movie that I am SO LOOKING FORWARD to seeing on the big-screen, where I well and truly enjoy movies :-)

Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that w...

Check out this fantastic documentary on Amazon Prime, about Sam J Jones, star of FLASH GORDON.

Jones appeared briefly in Blake Edwards' 10 as Bo Derek's husband, but then went on to appear in one of the biggest UK box-office hits in 1981 behind SUPERMAN II and FOR YOUR EYES ONLY.

This is a wonderful analysis of a man who got it, lost it and found it again through humility....

Life After Flash is a feature documentary that not only celebrates the 1980 classic Flash Gordon, but explores the life of star Sam J Jones since that iconic role, and the aftermath of when he went up against one of Hollywood's most powerful producers.

George Segal: a defining face of 1970s Hollywood with a late-career resurgence

https://www.theguardian.com/film/2021/mar/24/george-segal-face-of-1970s-hollywood-romcom-tribute-peter-bradshaw

Another departure from the world, not soon after the likes of Yaphet Kotto left us.

George Segal, like the late great Roy Scheider, seemed to appear in a number of top 1970s films, notably FUN WITH DICK AND JANE and the Sensurround offering ROLLERCOASTER ( both1977).

He was a versatile actor who formed a partnership with British acting legend Glenda Jackson on several occasions and later in life had a recurring role on the US TV show THE GOLDBERGS.

Well worth checking out some of his filmography when you get a chance :-)

The romcom player appeared opposite everyone from Barbra Streisand to Glenda Jackson before almost disappearing from screens. But a late-career turn on TV brought new admirers
