Description by OLDIES.com:
In Celluloid Adventures: Good Movies Bad Timing, films were discussed that had received scathing reviews and were considered box-office bombs. All fell within various categories. Entries included titles from the Tarzan and James Bond series, along with Westerns, Wyatt Earp movies and Hammer horror - all resurrected from diverse levels of oblivion in an attempt to correct critical injustice. In this volume, individual movies are presented and represent a wide range of genres including Westerns, science fiction, film noir, spy films, historical epics, suspense, social message movies and spiritual dramas. All of these titles share the stigma of being failures or disappointments at the box office. But these films deserved a better fate at the time of their release, and hopefully this volume will garner them a little of the respect they so richly deserve. Titles include: Pitfall, In a Lonely Place, Try and Get Me! (aka The Sound of Fury), The Egyptian, The Last Hunt, The Singer Not the Song, The Last Sunset, Cape Fear, First Men in the Moon, The Chase, The Quiller.
