BEAVER'S LODGE: THE PROFESSIONALS (1966)

There was a time when a certain kind of adventure film was popular. The 1960s were its heyday. Sometimes they were realistic, or even drawn from real life. Sometimes they were fanciful. But almost always they were intelligent and enormously entertaining. I haven't seen a new example of that kind of film in 30 or 40 years.

OSCARS REVISITED, 1981: ATLANTIC CITY

Made more in the spirit of the American New Wave than the French, ATLANTIC CITY is a whimsical sigh not only for the crumbling New Jersey city of the past but a certain mode of filmmaking that was entering its twilight.
