Subject: BS: Good bad films
Some films are so bad, so corny, so hilariously daft, that they become classics.

I'm just watching - for the nth time on TV - "The Black Shield Of Falworth" from 1954, with Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh. A ludicrous period piece set in the time of Henry IV, with picture-book qualities. And one of the first films ever made in Cinemascope. I love it - a great way to spend a cold, grey Saturday afternoon, watching lovable tripe.
