Hurricanes in Southern California?
I'm damn tired of all the east coast grandmas complaining on how scary The War of the Worlds Broadcast was. The plain fact is it affected people on the West coast too! This is one such account of that night in 1938. While I enjoy a good whodunit I really enjoy a good JAB at a whodunit. Jason Carter is mesmerizing as Dixon. Dixon who is fueled by rum is skillfully mastered by Carter who at times seems to channel Peter O' Toole at his Ruling Class finest. Carter is a laugh riot! Maybe it's the fact that the Great Detective Dixon Maison is rarely without a hurricane. A drink from his homeland (he says in his British accent)"New Orleans" If his glass runs low rest assured his trusty sidekick Scooter will mix up a batch. Oh thank GOD A FILM with a DRUNK HERO! No current studio would ever grow testicles large enough to think about making a lead a full blown drunk! Ya gotta Love Magick Films!
