1950s movies marathon – part 26

The Outcasts of Poker Flat (1952, USA)

All the people of ill repute and negotiable virtue get run out of Poker Flat, and must fend for themselves out in the wilderness, where the real bad guys roam.  Watched it all.

The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men (1952, USA)

Of all the horrible adaptations of Robin Hood, this may well be among the worst. Just going through the motions, although with a delightfully campy Prince John looking like a cross between Conan O’Brian and Adam Savage.  Watched: 7 minutes.

Zombies of the Stratosphere (1952 serial, USA)

Wait, those funnily dressed bad guys from outer space are supposed to be zombies?  No.  Those are not zombies, not even the old boring kind.  Watched: 4 minutes.

Ivanhoe (1952, USA)

Oh Popcorn & Chain mail, though you haven’t posted anything for years, I imagine your commentary in my mind whenever I watch movies like this.  “Yay! Let’s go oppress the Saxons!!”  Watched: 9 minutes.

Lydia Bailey (1952, USA)

It has the feel of historical bullshit, but at least the opening scene with the Haiti drum messages is pretty awesome.  Watched: 7 minutes.
