Summary
  • I shot Jesse James: After years of crime reporting and writing pulp novels and screenplays, Samuel Fuller made his directorial debut with the lonesome ballad of Robert Ford who fatally betrayed his friend, the notorious Jesse James
  • The Baron of Arizona: In one of his own favorite roles, Vincent Price portrays legendary swindler James Addison Reavis, who, in 1880, concocted an elaborate and dangerous hoax to ascend to the title of "Baron of Arizona" and inherit all the land in the state
  • The steel helmet: Despite its relatively low budget, this portrait of Korean War soldiers grappling with moral and racial issues while trying to stay alive remains one of the director's most gripping, realistic depictions of the blood and guts of war, as well as a reflection of Fuller's social conscience
