  1. I think Pickup on South Street is amazing. The Steel Helmet and The Big Red One are two of the greatest war movies. Underworld U.S.A. is classic too…and Park Row is Fuller’s Citizen Kane 2.0!

  2. All of these titles that you mention are great films within Samuel Fuller’s resume. I also love it that someone else has seen Park Row besides me 🙂 I love how you label it “Citizen Kane 2.0!” 🙂 It has been implied or said elsewhere that it can also best be viewed as Citizen Kane on a low budget. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂

  3. I have recently been watching Samuel Fuller films. I am very intrigued by a director that I knew nothing about. I’m construing a post about him and the film Naked Kiss. It will be my next post. Thought I’d let you know.

  4. Hey Pam, sorry for the late reply (past few days have been busy). Glad you are interested in the films of director Samuel Fuller. Along with Nicholas Ray, Fuller had a cult following among deep thinking cinema lovers. I also can’t wait to read your post. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
