Reviewed on 7/29/2018...
Here are the 50 movies in this set. A couple are actually from 1959 and many are foreign films. Most are presented in 4:3 format, not widescreen.
There are a lot of movies to watch, so I'll keep updating this review as I get them watched.
Rating system: 1 = not worth watching; 2 = worth watching; 3 = well worth watching
1963 (2) Alexander the Great - TV movie, features William Shatner and Adam West. At only 50 minutes, this a short movie based on Alexander's battle where he defeated King Darius of Persia.
1961 (2) Anatomy of a Psycho - B&W, is about a young man driven insane by the execution of his older brother. His psychosis causes him to continually spiral deeper in trouble with the law.
1962 (?) The Avenger - This movie was filmed in color, however the copy on this DVD is black and white! This is supposed to be a decent movie, but I tried to watch it twice and it just failed to hold my attention.
1969 (2) The Ballad of Andy Crocker - TV movie, features Agnes Morehead, Marvin Gaye, Bobby Hatfield (of the Righteous Brothers), Jimmy Dean, Joey Heatherton, Lisa Todd (a Hee Haw Honey) and Lee Majors as a Vietnam veteran who finds that his business has been ruined by a partner, his girlfriend married to another man, a friends hard to find.

1969 (2) Diary of a Telephone Operator - Dubbed, features Claudia Cardinale, is about two female roommates that are also telephone operators. One is always entertaining men and the other one always seems to be alone, so she sets out to steal the other ones boyfriends.
1962 (1) The Dungeon of Harrow - Badly acted and boring
1960 (2) Esther and the King - Features a 26-year old Joan Coolins, is a telling of the biblical story.
1966 (1) The Fat Spy - Features Jayne Mansfield & Phyllis Diller. A spoof of 1960's beach party movies, it has very little plot & lacks focus & direction.
1961 (2) Five Minutes to Live - B&W, features Johnny Cash, Vic Tayback, Ron Howard and Merle Travis. A bank robber and a killer for hire team up to rob a bank by holding the bank manager's wife hostage in their home. It's a low budget movie and the sound quality is awful.
1964 (1) Guerillas in Pink Lace - Stars George Montgomery in a film that attempts to be a comedy but is just lacking in everything.
1967 (1) The Head of the Family aka Il padre di famiglia - Dubbed, features Leslie Caron whom is wasted in this boring saga of a man who marries, starts a family, gets bored with life, has an affair, blah, blah, blah.
1967 (1) Hell of Borneo - Features George Montgomery acting, producing, writing, and directing. Don't waste your time, nothing good about it.

Nobody seems to like him, but nobody will do anything about it until he shows up at the street races and tries to take over that, too.
1967 The Jackals
1966 (2) Lightning Bolt aka Operazione Goldman - Letter-boxed, a fair attempt at a James Bond-like sci-fi movie.
1966 (?) Magic Serpent - Dubbed, Japanese monster and Ninja flick. Sorry, I can't stand Ninja movies, so no review on this one.
1962 (3) The Magic Sword - The son of a sorceress armed with a magical sword and armor accompanied by six magically summoned knights, embarks on a quest to save a princess from a vengeful wizard. The special effects are quite good for 1962! Plenty of action and story moves along at a good pace.
1959 (1) The Manster - B&W, is about a Japanese scientist experimenting on humans turning them into monsters. The movie tries to be a combination sci-fi, horror, drama, mystery and thriller and just ends up missing them all and becoming boring.
1964 (1) The Nasty Rabbit - Letter-boxed, is a very silly spy spoof movie. Richard "Jaws" Kiel appears in this farce with the only redeeming quality of the movie is being able to see the voluptuous Liz Renay.
1961 (2) Night Tide - B&W, features Dennis Hopper, whom gives a drab, lackluster performance. He falls in love with a carnie "mermaid" that he believes kills on the full moon.
1966 (2) The Poppy is Also a Flower - An Ian Fleming story, directed by Terence Young and chocked full of stars such as Yul Brynner, Angie Dickinson, Rita Hayworth, E. G. Marshall, Omar Sharif, Eli Wallach, Grace Kelly, and more proves that all of that talent can't make a movie a hit. The movie is about the opium trade from the middle east to Europe and the story just misses the mark that should keep it interesting. Also, this copy's color is fading and at times is nearly black and white.
1962 The Reluctant Saint
1963 (3) The Sadist - B&W, three teachers driving to a baseball game have car trouble. They stop at a repair shop, but the area seems deserted. They encounter a psychotic killer and his girlfriend whom the police are looking for.
1968 (2) Sandy the Seal - Basically a children's movie by today's standards, but still quite dated, it's a story about capturing seal poachers.
1964 (1) Santa Clause Conquers the Martians - Features a 10-year old Pia Zadora, is a Christmas movie that was certainly a children's movie when it was released. I doubt that any child except for the very young would be willing to watch it now. The acting and action scenes are laughable by today's standards.
1966 (1) The She Beast - is about a woman that drowns in a lake and is possessed by an 18th century witch that was killed in the same lake by the locals. It's supposed to be a horror and a thriller, but they threw in some comedy that just did nothing for the movie but take it down a few notches.
1962 (1) Shoot Out at Big Sag - B&W, is a western TV movie for a pilot that features Walter Brennan. It's just isn't that interesting and borders being boring.
1966 (1) Sound of Horror - B&W, dubbed, is about a group of treasure hunters that are terrorized by an invisible, shrieking dinosaur that was trapped in a cave that they inadvertently released.
1963 (2) Sword of Lancelot - A telling of the story of the affair between Sir Lancelot and Queen Guinevere.
1967 (3) They Came From Beyond Space - A decent sci-fi invasion movie from the UK. Aliens come to earth seeking knowledge by taking over bodies.
1968 (3) Twisted Nerve - Features Hayley Mills and is about a young sexual psychopath man who portrays a mentally handicapped boy so that he can use a family to aid in the coverup of murdering his father. In the meantime he has developed an infatuation with their daughter and commits another murder.
1960 (3) Two Women - B&W, dubbed, features Sophia Loren, An Italian mother whom is tired of the ravages of World War II, attempts to remove herself and her daughter from war torn Italy.
1969 (1) Wake Me When the War is Over - TV movie featuring Eva Gabor, Werner Klemperer and Jim Backus stars Ken Berry as an inept WWII American officer who accidentally ends up parachuting into Germany. He is held "prisoner" by Baroness Marlene whom falls in love with him and refuses to tell him that the war has ended.
1962 (2) When the Girls Take Over - B&W, cheesy comedy loosely based on Fidel Castro's take-over of Cuba.
1968 (2) White Comanche - Features William Shatner playing half-breed twin brothers, one good, one evil, in a Spanish western.
1960 (1) The Wild Ride - features Jack Nicholson but that's about the highlight of this saga of an amateur dirt track race driver who spends most of his time partying and causing trouble.
