Byron's Recent Reviews
Film critics and historians talk about the gangster picture, how Caesar Enrico Bandello was a thinly veiled Al Capone, and the formation of the antihero in the news and at the movies.
This animated short is amongst the bonus features available on the Little Caesar DVD. An early Merrie Melodie before the classic Looney Tunes characters were developed. Foxy was Rudolf Ising's version of Mickey Mouse. A mere curiosity of early animation and title song by Oscar Levant.
Byron's Favorite Movies
I've read all the books, and even though it takes liberties with a few things, I still love it. In this most well-known adaptation, the special effects for the time, the technicolor, the quotable lines, and the simple values of brain, heart, courage, and home are what make it great. It'll always be my favorite!
This was a Disney after-school TV series, but the first few (to-be-continued) episodes were edited together to make this feature length video. It's not what you'd expect from a Disney cartoon- it's darker, more dramatic, a great mix of sci-fi and fantasy. As the series progresses more and more mythical and Shakespearian characters pop up and many Star Trek actors provide their voices. From animation voice actor regulars like Thom Adcox-Hernadez, Kath Soucie, Ed Gilbert, Bill Fagerbakke, Jeff Bennett and Frank Welker to more familiar faces like Clancy Brown, Edward Asner, Sallie Richardson, Marina Sirtis, Jonathan Frakes and Keith David the cast is stunning. I stand by my 5-star rating for the story of these heroes!
