    • 7023 Views • 1970s, Film, SportComments Off on Match of The Day – Playboy Bunnies Versus Apes

    We’ve not had many football related posts as there’s more than enough news and views on the subject out there to last anyone a lifetime but here’s something completely different from 1973 which ticks all the right boxes for us featuring as it does men...

  • Hanging Out at Heathrow Airport

    • 1920 Views • 1960s, 1970s, Film, Hanging Out, MusicComments Off on Hanging Out at Heathrow Airport

    The modern relationship between celebs and the paparazzi is a curiously reciprocal arrangement not unlike signing a pact with Old Nick himself. We have to wonder quite who would want to be a celebrity these days as it is beyond us here at VoEA. We prefer a...

  • Movin on Up – Edwin Starr Covers Primal Scream

    • 4214 Views • 1990s, Film, MusicComments Off on Movin on Up – Edwin Starr Covers Primal Scream

    Originally we were going to pop this cover version into our Unexpected Gems category. However it didn’t meet our strict criteria, as we like quite a lot of Primal Scream and Edwin Starr’s work – the same can’t be said for Cliff...

  • The Haircut – A Short film starring John Cassavetes

    • 6024 Views • 1980s, FilmComments Off on The Haircut – A Short film starring John Cassavetes

    We are big fans of Mr Cassavetes here at VoEA, and are happy to present a short film starring the man himself. This isn’t an article about John Cassavetes, just a chance to share this often overlooked little gem. Although a relatively ‘cult’...

    Whilst stumbling through the interweb the other day, we came across a Youtube member with a neat little collection of London radio ads for movies of the mid 70’s to mid 80’s (the golden age), so we decide to flag 10 up for you to enjoy. It’s...

    Actor Jackie Gleason played Minnesota Fats in the 1961 film The Hustler and starred alongside Burt Reynolds as Sheriff Buford T Justice in the Smokey and the Bandit films. Apart from acting he also had a successful career as a composer. His first album...

  • Ridley Scott – Boy and Bicycle 1965

    • 3651 Views • 1960s, FilmComments Off on Ridley Scott – Boy and Bicycle 1965

    This is not an exclusive, this has been available to watch for a while, but we thought it worth sharing in case you hadn’t had the chance yet. Ridley Scott is of course the huge Hollywood blockbuster producer, with many big films under his belt. But he...

  • Take a Trip with Jigsaw – 1968 Film

    • 4133 Views • 1960s, FilmComments Off on Take a Trip with Jigsaw – 1968 Film

    Another cult movie offering for you now, and this one is from 1968….. This is a kind of who-dunnit based on the novel ‘Fallen Angel’, and is a kind of loose remake of 1965 movie ‘Mirage’ starring Gregory Peck. It’s a...

  • Wild In The Streets

    • 5163 Views • 1960s, Film, MusicComments Off on Wild In The Streets

    We like our cult classic movies here at VoEA and usually for good reason. Away from all the hype and over-the-top advertising, cult classics are generally slow burners that become known through word of mouth – surely the best form of advertising known to...
