Day #22,088

Walk km 10,985-10,992: to Pecos at Tropicana

Movie #2063: Hell's Island (1955, Phil Karlson)

They say that Phil Karlson was kind of embarrassed about having to direct Elvis in "Kid Galahad". I wonder how he felt about this one. It's total crap but there are a few unintentional laughs.

Movie #2064: The Glory Stompers (1968, Anthony M Lanza)

A biker flick for squares. There is a direct relationship between the moral turpitude of a particular character with the amount of that character's facial hair. Dennis Hopper is the leader of the bad gang and he has the most. The good guys are clean shaven. But what else would you expect from a movie whose producers are Mike Curb and Casey Kasem?

Movie #2065: Behind The Mask (1946, Phil Karlson)
Here we have Karlson back in the days when he directed programmers. This is a "The Shadow" entry in the whodunit/comedy genre. It stinks. Nobody cares whodunit and the comedy ain't funny.
Kane Richmond has the lead and he must be the most boring leading man in the history of Hollywood.
