Though it has a promising young cast and an interesting premise, some of the twists are either a tad too unbelievable or too easily seen coming for the film to be entirely successful.

Capone was one of the most famous inmates at Alcatraz, who eventually died of syphilis while incarcerated. The film begins with the introduction of Capone, who is liked by the press and claims that he is not a violent man. Shortly thereafter, there is a brief scene that demonstrates the violence that has come to define the liquor wars of the ...

title: North By Northwest function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Warner Bros. Home Video MPAA rating: NR starring: Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason, Martin Landau, Leo G. Carroll, Adam Williams, Robert Ellenstein, Jessie Royce Landis release year: 1959 film rating: Five stars reviewed by: Bill Warren 'North by Northwest' may not be quite at the top of the Hitchcock list, but it's very high, and one of his most entertaining movies. Ernest Lehman's script is mostly a means of getting Cary Grant from one dangerous situation to another, but the dialog, in the old term, sparkles, the cast is exceptional even by Hitchcock's standards, the locations are gorgeously photographed, and it contains one of the wildest, most suspenseful and spectacular sequences in any Hitchcock movie -- in any movie, in fact. The "crop duster" scene is unforgettable.

It’s a tight, beautifully-structured thriller; it has a simple, almost elementary story, and one goal: to scare the bejabbers out of watchers. It does this brilliantly. Its success is partly due, as the director himself admits, to him being a very young man (25) when it was made.

title: The Stepford Wives function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: Anchor Bay Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Katharine Ross, Paula Prentiss, Peter Masterson, Nanette Newman, Tina Louise, Patrick O'Neal, Carol Eve Rossen, William Prince, Josef Sommer release year: 1975 film rating: Three-and-a-half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren The reputation (and to a degree, notoriety) of 'The Stepford Wives' has certainly grown over the last 25 years. Even though it wasn't a significant hit when it was first released, it did result in three TV movie sequels. ('Revenge of the Stepford Wives,' which trashed the premise, and probably inevitably, 'The Stepford Husbands' and 'The Stepford Children.' I'm waiting breathlessly for 'The Stepford Nannies.') Now it has been released in a somewhat skimpy but well-produced DVD by the always-interesting Anchor Bay.
