1. At War with the Army

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - At War with the Army, a terrific Martin & Lewis comedy classic about the craziness of being a soldier in the US Army. Jerry Lewis stars as pfc Alvin Korwin, who as you might expect, is a goofy nerd with a heart of gold. Meanwhile - Dean Martin plays First Sgt. Vic Puccinelli, a childhood friend of Korwin's, who is a callous womanizer, trying to dodge an airhead, former sweetheart named Millie... who is in trouble, i.e. pregnant. Jean Ruth is terrific in her role as Millie. The film also introduces Polly Bergen, who plays Helen - Vic's current girlfriend. They do a beautiful duet in an old style recording booth - where soldiers would send nifty audio messages to friends and family back home.

2. Beneath The 12 Mile Reef

Description: A Greek father and son sponge diving team, Mike and Tony Petrakis try to farm the dangerous 12 mile reef - BIG sponges and BIG danger. The family also has trouble with the Key West locals, especially Arnold Rhys, played by Peter graves - who is a jerk that wants to marry Gwynne Rhys, but she likes the young Greek sponge diver, Tony Petrakis (Robert Wagner). If you want a fun, campy B movie - kinda like a “Key West Side Story“ with the Conks and The Greeks (instead of The Jets and The Sharks), and instead of musical numbers, you get underwater scenes with sponge divers. If that is what you are looking for - you have arrived!

3. Day of Wrath

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - Vredens Dag, or Day of Wrath (1943), Carl Theodor Dreyer's pychodrama about witches, priests and passion set in 1600s. Lisbeth Movin plays Anne - a young woman in her twenties who got married to the priest in the village, Reverend Absalom - who is about 55 or 60. An amazing film about witches, burning at the stake, forced confessions, wild passion, and bad decisions. The cinematography is pure genius. Danish language film with English subtitles. We liked this movie

4. Dragnet - The Big Little Jesus

Description: Okay... Jack Webb rocks. Come clean... you like him too. In the first episode - “The Big Little Jesus“ - a statue is stolen from Father Rojas' church and Joe Friday has to get it back by Christmas - which is less than 24 hours away! Watch Joe shake down an innocent suspect before Miranda... This is pre-Bill Gannon / Harry Morgan - Ben Alexander is Joe's doughnut buddy.

5. Forbidden Games (Jeux Interdits)

Description: The LikeTelevision™ movie channel presents a terrific 1952 classic called Jeux interdits, which roughly translates into Forbidden Games, the English title. The movie is set in France at the start of World War II. Brigitte Fossey plays the young Paulette, a 5 year old orphan who loses her parents as the family flees from the Nazis who are attacking Paris. They get killed by a Messerschmitt that strafes a bridge filled with civilians. Paulette get adopted by a sweet peasant family, the Dolles and she becomes good friends with their young boy about 7 or 8 named Michel Dolle (Georges Poujouly). The film tells an amazing story of the war as seen through the eyes of some beautiful children who are paying a dear price for the troubles of the world. We highly recommend this movie. Two thumbs up.

6. House of Exorcism

Description: Elke Sommer wanders into the wrong place on a tour and gets possessed by the devil - who looks a lot like Telly Savalas. This movie is a more violent and disturbing re-edit of “Lisa and the Devil“. Coarse language, violence and nudity. Directed by Mario Bava. Rated “R“ for Randy.

7. IL Bidone

Description: The LikeTelevision™ Movie channel proudly presents IL Bidone - a disturbing dramatic tragedy by Federico Fellini - starring Broderick Crawford (best known as Dan Matthews on Highway Patrol) as a small time con man named Augusto. He's a detestable character who cons peasants out of their life savings by impersonating a Monsiegnor from The Vatican. But Augusto is getting old, and you can't help feeling sorry for him when he tries to rip off his fellow con men, by stealing the crippled girl's family's money to finance his daughter's education. Huh? Yep - old Augusto is low as they come - and he has a great Karmic meltdown in the end. Also stars Richard Basehart (Captain from Voyage To The Bottom of The Sea) as Picasso, a young con man with a family. Part of Fellini's Trilogy of Loneliness!

8. Kwaidan - Hoichi the Earless

Description: Kwaidan is a spooky classic from Japan. The 1964 film offers four short horror stories. In the third story -Hoichi the Earless, follow the story of a blind Biwa player and his mystical journey into the spirit world. Hoichi has some wild visions as he entertains the tortured souls of a clan of Samurai warriors with his gift of musical skills. This story is so cool.... trust me, you need to see this. Be prepared for slower pacing... and be patient as you fall into Hoichi's mystical world. Also of note - if Takashi Shimura who plays the head priest looks familiar, well... he should. He starred in Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai as their leader and strategist.

11. One Step Beyond - Trap, The

Description: Need another terrific episode of One Step Beyond? No problem. One Step Beyond was a cool Sci-Fi TV show from the late 50s, early 60s... that inspired a few other cool sci-fi tv shows like The Twilight Zone and Outer Limits. The Trap which aird on 11/15/1960 features Mike Kellin in a dual role as Dominic DeNovio and Fred Gibbs, two identical twins separated at birth. This episode explores the psychic connection between identical twins. How one twil can burn themselves, and the other will feel it. In this story, Dominic Denovio starts acting very weird and gets sick from dehydration. It turns out his identical twin brother fell in a deserted mine shaft and got hurt. Denovio's ranting in the hospital helps save his identical twin brother. One of my favorite parts of this episode is how different the priest's chin looks. I have never seen one like that. This episode is real weird one, bet you like it! BTW - you can also check out Mike Kellin in At War with the Army on LikeTelevision's Movie channel.

12. Rashomon - Akira Kurosawa Classic

Description: LikeTelevision's movie channel is proud to present - Rashomon, a tale about a murder and rape - and a look at truth, justice and lies. We hear four separate accounts of the crime and each is quite different than the other versions. The film explores perception and reality. We learn about the TRUTH, a painful truth, that indeed we all tell lies, even to ourselves. If you have read any Existential works by Jean Paul Satre, Soren Kierkegaard, or Martin Heidegger - this film will really get you thinking about man's search for TRUTH.

14. Samurai Three - Duel at Ganryu Island

Description: The incredible Samurai trilogy from Hiroshi Inagaki continues - with part three... Duel At Ganryu Island. This epic drama of Japan's legendary samurai warrior Miyamoto Musashi, played by Toshir? Mifune.

15. Samurai Two - Duel at Ichijoji Temple

Description: The incredible Samurai trilogy from Hiroshi Inagaki continues - with part two... Duel At Ichijoji Temple. Compared to part one, which didn't offer much in the way of martial arts action - part two is chocked full of saber rattling, Samurai swashbucklers! The final scene were Musashi takes on eighty guys is one of the greatest fight scenes ever shot on film. (use the rice paddies Musashi, and you might have a chance).

16. Street Fighter, The

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - The Street Fighter (Gekitotsu! Satsujin Ken) starring Sonny Chiba. Originally released in 1974 - this is one of the most graphically violent martial arts films ever made, and as such - it is NOT for kids. The violence is over the top - in fact, when the movie was first released, it received an X rating, even though there is no course language or nudity. This is the cut version - which tones down the violence a wee bit, and and received an R rating.

17. Ugetsu

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents director Kenji Mizoguchi's 1953 classic tale of greed and ambition called Ugetsu (a.k.a. Ugetsu monogatari). This film features many of the same actors in Kurosawa's epic, Rashomon from 1950 - and also offers a story line that reminds one of the first tale from Kwaidan called Black Hair.

18. Un Chien Andalou

Description: Un Chien Andalou, or An Andalusian Dog a creepy and weird avant garde masterpiece written by Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel. Created in 1929, the 17 minute film was the first directed by Luis Bunuel, and features several scenes that are legendary. Who could forget the eyeball getting sliced open with a straight razor, or the ants crawling out of the hand, or the man hauling two priests (Dali and Bunuel no less) attached to two huge grand pianos, each with a bloody dead donkey inside. Nope - one doesn't forget these images easily.
