Cinema Retro magazine 20

Subscribers in North America and other parts of the world will get their issues shortly after the new year, once the issues arrive from England. Cinema Retro is edited by our James Bond friends, Lee Pfeiffer and Dave Worrall.

• Cover story on Candy starring Ewa Aulin as the sexy teen nymph in an all-star fiasco that involved Marlon Brando, Ringo Starr, James Coburn and Walter Matthau. Dean Brierly examines how such a sure-fire project turned into one of the worst movies ever made.
• This issue's Film in Focus is Earthquake, the 1974 blockbuster starring Charlton Heston, Ava Gardner and many other familiar faces in one of the most successful films of the genre. Ross Warner reminds why the film remains a guilty pleasure and Thomas Hauerslav of the web site presents a fascinating look at the history of Sensurround, the Oscar-winning sound system that had more than its share of mishaps.
• Nick Anez provides analysis of two Fox Westerns from the 1960s: The Comancheros starring John Wayne and Stuart Whitman and Rio Conchos starring Whitman and Richard Boone. Anez examines the startling similarities between the two films and debates if Conchos can truly be regarded as a remake of The Comancheros.
• Lee Pfeiffer has a sit-down interview with jazz great Kyle Eastwood and discusses his scoring of films with his father, Clint Eastwood. Kyle also recalls starring with his dad in Honkytonk Man and making a cameo in The Outlaw Josey Wales.
• Gary McMahon looks at memorable films that have coped with the restrictions of shooting key sequences in confined places, from the legendary fight aboard the Orient Express in the James Bond classic From Russia With Love to Hitchcock's Lifeboat and Huston's Key Largo.
• Cinema Retro music critic Darren Allison provides an in-depth tribute to the recently departed legendary composer John Barry.
• Matthew Field concludes his three-part interview with director Lewis Gilbert with discussions of Friends and Educating Rita.
• Herbie J. Pilato examines the good, the bad and the ugly among major films based on legendary TV series.
• Raymond Benson looks back on his top films of 1979 including Alien and Apocalypse Now.
• Cinema Retro honors famed film critic and documentary maker Richard Schickel at a special event held at the Players club in New York City.
• Gareth Owen pays tribute to Michael Powell's long-neglected classic Peeping Tom.
• Coverage and photos from the new book MGM: Hollywood's Greatest Backlot

Plus, the usual extensive reviews of soundtracks, DVDs and movie books.
