by Samuel Fuller
starring Vincent Price

"Master swindler James Reavis devotes years to forging documents that will give him claim to the entire state of Arizona. He finds a young girl whom he believes is an orphan and hires a governess to educate her in the manner of the Spanish aristocracy. He invents deceased parents for her whose ancestry can be traced to a mythical Spanish nobleman. He then insinuates himself into a Spanish monastery for three years so he can access its biblioteca which carries the records of Spanish land grants. He later joins a gypsy band to have access to the library of a Spanish noblemen where he can alter duplicate documents. When everything is in place, he marries the now-grown young woman and puts in his claim as her husband as the Baron of Arizona." -

I thought this was a pretty good movie, and V. Price is outstanding! It's a true story that makes it a lot better and the ending was pretty surprising.

by Peter Yates
starring Robert Mitchum & Peter Boyle

I didn't love this movie, but it's really well shot and the way the characters played each other kinda reminded of THE GOOD, THE BAD, & THE UGLY... maybe that's a bit far fetched though. I've always been a fan of Robert Mitchum though and I think his acting in this film as the old guy who still gets stuff done is pretty great.
oh, also! I finally got this LP:
