Description: It's Christmas time 1940 in Everytown. People are happy and enjoying the holiday season but all is shattered when a global war is declared. This war drags out over many decades until most of the people still alive (mostly those born after the war started) do not even know who started it or why. Nothing is being manufactured at all any more and society has broken down into primitive localized communities. In 1966 a great plague, the Wandering Sickness, wipes out most of what people are left but small numbers still survive. One day a strange aircraft lands at one of these communities and its pilot tells of an organization which is rebuilding civilization and slowly moving across the world re-civilizing these groups of survivors. Great reconstruction takes place over the next few decades and society is once again great and strong. The world's population is now living in underground cities. In the year 2035, on the eve of man's first flight to the moon, a popular uprising against progress (which some people claim has caused the wars of the past) gains support and becomes violent.

Baby Doll (1956) - classic drama based on Tennessee Williams play, directed by Elia Kazan, starring Karl Malden, Carroll Baker and Eli Wallach

Rating 7.5/10
Runtime: 115 min
Language: English
Country: USA
Directed by: Elia Kazan
IMDb Link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0048973/

Cast

Karl Malden ... Archie Lee Meighan
Carroll Baker ... Baby Doll Meighan
Eli Wallach ... Silva Vacarro
Mildred Dunnock ... Aunt Rose Comfort
Lonny Chapman ... Rock
Eades Hogue ... Town Marshal
Noah Williamson ... Deputy

Description: Living in Tiger Tail County, Mississippi, middle aged Archie Lee Meighan and nineteen year old "Baby Doll" Meighan née McCargo have been married for close to two years. Their marriage is not based on love, but each getting what they want from the other. Their marriage agreement has them consummating their marriage on her twentieth birthday, which is in three days, the act to which Baby Doll is not really looking forward. But she does taunt him and other men with her overt "baby doll" sexuality, the baby doll aspect which she fosters by sleeping in their house's nursery in a crib. Baby Doll's now deceased father allowed the marriage on the stipulation that Archie Lee provide Baby Doll financial security as displayed by the most resplendent house in the south. They currently live in a dilapidated mansion with her Aunt Rose Comfort, and although Archie Lee is making some renovations on it, he no longer has the financial means to make it what Baby Doll wants as his cotton ginning competitor, the recently arrived Sicilian Silva Vacarro who runs the cotton plantation syndicate, has effectively put him and many others in the area out of business. The Meighan's fortunes may change after Vacarro's cotton gin burns down in a case of arson. Vacarro is certain Archie Lee is the arsonist. After meeting the Meighans and learning more about their marriage, Vacarro believes the way to get what he wants is through Baby Doll. This action begins the three way battle of wills between Vacarro, Archie Lee and Baby Doll.

More re-uploads coming!

Hello dear visitors!!

As you are all well aware, a lot of movies posted in previous years prior change-over to torrents have been dead for a long time

I am trying my best to post new movies as often as possible, but limited amount of time and a lot of commitments prevent me from frequent re-uploads of dead links

As a way to tackle at least a little bit of the problem, I just started re-uploading some more movies without editing any info in original movie posts...you will find a main movie as a torrent file and probably in future, if time allows, I will re-edit original submissions.

So if you are just after the movies...here's the way to go...the list will be updated in coming weeks and more movies will be added

Take a look at 4 first movies by clicking on this link here



Keep downloading guys and come back for more !!

EDIT (12/02/2017)

- Missing download links for A face in the crowd (1957) added - sorry fot that!!
- Most recent edits and additions posted on top of the note

When a gang of freebooters passes through, their leader Larkin, who is suffering from a minor wound, decides to spend the night. The gang members prove to be vicious, sadistic sociopaths who take advantage of the frightened townspeople, humiliating them for their own perverse amusement. Although Larkin disapproves of their behavior, his leadership role is tenuous, and he is reluctant to test it by exercising control over his men. The mild-mannered Cobb also seems hesitant to challenge the gang's antisocial behavior.

Arthur, a mentally-challenged stable boy, comes to her aid and accidentally kills him. Cobb locks up Arthur pending a trial, but when the sheriff visits his pregnant wife, the gang breaks into the jail and lynches the boy...
