| Blow those dirty little reds to smithereens! Toss in Kim Jong-un Too!
Operation Dames was allegedly released for the drive-ins back in the day! When I had an opportunity to by a 16mm print of this picture I didn't know what to expect? Turns out for a low budget flick, it's way better than some of the stupid reviews that some of the fools gave it here! First off the typical drive-in flick that we grew up with in the 1970's were all pieces of trash! They were not even a quarter as good as this old picture is. The acting over all was pretty good, I felt that Chuck Henderson as Jeff did a great job of acting! Turns out he was in the cast of one of my favorite detective / cop shows "Manhunt" 1960 in which he played Detective Dan Kramer! It's a damn shame he didn't do more pictures! The character he plays is has the kind of personality we need now in leaders! It's no wonder that we can't get this Covid-19 thing behind us, I mean look at the list of snowflakes we have as leaders, here in California, for example we have Governor Gavin Newsom, Barbara Ferrer, look at her, she looks and sounds like she's on Quaalude's! Who gonna take her seriously? We need a man like the character "Jeff" in the movie! Then our orange colored skin President Donald Trump! He's a huge snowflake, how about Dr. Fauci? He reminds me of Mel Brookes! How about the up and coming snowflake Uncle Joe Biden? Or Kayleigh McEnany? Did Trump have sex with this woman? (We can only hope!) But come on, we need a man to tell us what to do, not a bunch of pussies! Okay so Big Duke Wayne is missing from this picture, but I bet he even liked it! Killing those dirty little Korean reds! There's nothing wrong with this picture! So drink a beer, and enjoy a great little "B" flick from the last golden era of Hollywood! Oh yea, Louis Clyde Stoumen the films director did a damn good job there may have one or two shots that he could have made better, but for a guy who only made a few feature pictures, he also did a damn good job! Eve Meyer wasn't that attractive but she gave it her all! Some of the other chicks were cute! Love it when Byron Morrow's character Benny blows up the reds with a backpack full of hand grenade in revenge for killing his woman! Blow those dirty reds to smithereens! (Toss in Kim Jong-un another snowflake! - Love his flattop!) It's 74 minutes of good solid entertainment! The black and white makes it! Best part, there are no idiots covered with tattoos, no dumb women with colored hair, no cell phones, computers, car chases foul language, horrible recorded "Rock" "Rap" "Country" music! The last year of one of the best and last good decades America had! We all know about the 38th parallel, and the fact that the Korean War was a bunch of B.S. But it sure made for some damn good war pictures, didn't it! Ten Stars from me, just because! Gotta find my M1918 Browning automatic and my Covid-19 mask, and I'm set! Now where did I put that map of North Korea? Damn it!
