B Movie Bingo: American Hunter
B Movie Bingo presents 1988's AMERICAN HUNTER. Cross out the squares to B Movie cliches! In AMERICAN HUNTER, Chris Mitchum stars as Jake Carver, an Interpol agent and martial arts expert. While on a mission to recover microfilm that holds information that can destroy Wall Street, he meets an adversary’s secretary and falls in love with her. She is subsequently kidnapped at least four times. His nemesis, Adam (non-contact karate star Bill “Superfoot” Wallace), has a pet falcon and monkey and can often be seen in a sweat suit. This movie is action-packed with plenty of car chases, kidnappings, denim, and Chris Mitchum on a motorcycle. The most boring part is a ten minute helicopter chase that ends in total anti-climax. Directed by Arizal.

Reluctantly accepted into 'The Family,' he grows increasingly aggressive, eventually starting a gang war. Directed by Larry Cohen, with an incredible original soundtrack by James Brown.

Buster Keaton's One Week & Go West
After serving a three-year apprenticeship under slapstick superstar Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, former child vaudevillian Joseph Frank “Buster” Keaton was promoted from supporting player to comic lead, and hired to star in a series of twenty, two-reel comedies (usually written and directed with Eddie Cline). These initial solo efforts reveal Keaton’s cinematic genius just as it was beginning to flower. Already one can see the qualities that would define his later work: the fascination with oversized mechanical props (the prefabricated house of ONE?WEEK), dynamic stunts and chases, and a penchant for dark comedy.
