The Cay (1974)

 






















Starring:
  • James Earl Jones
  • Alfred Lutter III
IMDB.com
When Young Phillip is separated form his mother and found by a black man named Timothy and his cat Stewcat, Phillip becomes blind and they all end up on an island. Will they survive or will they die?

The availability of this made-for-TV movie is obscure. I saw it on some Sunday night on TV in 1974, and have wanted to see it again ever since. The story is positively poignant and the acting is superb. The character of Timothy is a wonderfully unique portrayal by James Earl Jones. The adaptation from the book was done well. Want to see it again and own it in my home movie library. I know that the book is still used for literature/english classes at the junior high/middle school level and this film version would be a valuable asset as a "follow-up" for students after reading the book.

The Bedford Incident (1965)























Starring:
  • Sidney Poitier
  • Richard Widmark
  • James MacArthur
IMDB.com
Richard Widmark plays a hardened cold-warrior and captain of the American destroyer USS Bedford. Sidney Poitier is a reporter given permission to interview the captain during a routine patrol. Poitier gets more than he bargained for when the Bedford discovers a Soviet sub in the depths and the captain begins a relentless pursuit, pushing his crew to the breaking point. This one's grim tension to the end.

Black Terrorist (1976)

























Starring:
  • Vera Johns
  • Alan Granville
  • Norman Knox

IMDB.com
This movie is extremely obscure and impossible to find. It was originally titled "Terrorist" (1976). It actually is not as bad as you would think. A marauding band of black terrorists hold the inhabitants of a tiny desert settlement hostage. They murder most of the settlers, but spare a beautiful white woman and her young son. She escapes in a hale of gunfire, then enlists the aid of a machine gun toting soldier of fortune to free her child. Lots of great campy music. Based on a true story.
