What people are saying:

I am one of your new subscribers to your online weekly updates. I find them fascinating, and entertaining. They remind me of my cultural background...Spanish...where folks could get together and loudly, sometimes irreverently, discuss differences of opinion and still go home with egos intact. It has always saddened me how "polite" we all are here in Canada, and how much we miss by not giving our real opinions for fear of offending someone. Carry on. Salud y Buena suerte! - Carmen Lopez, Winnipeg

It Came from the Vault
The Party
Peter Sellers (1968, Free)

The Party

Hrundi V. Bakshi (Peter Sellers) is a seemingly nameless and faceless actor from India brought to Hollywood for a role in a film similar to Gunga Din. Unfortunately, he manages to blow up the set before the cameras are rolling, ruining the entire film. The director is beside himself, fires Bakshi immediately and wants him blacklisted. However, instead of being blacklisted, Bakshi's name is accidentally written on the guest list of the studio boss's party.

Naked Prey (1966)

Naked Prey

Naked Prey was the second film in the special series at the Ellice Theatre, Aqua Books Presents It Came From The Vault. The film's director, former olympic fencer Cornel Wilde, stars as The Man, the last surviving member of an ill-fated African hunting party. The Man is sentenced by a ruthless tribal leader to be hunted down by a party of tribal men. Naked and weaponless he is set loose, the hunters hot on his heels, beginning a life-or-death hunt through wild Africa. This is a breathless, psychological thriller about survival and instinct.

Aqua Books Presents It Came From The Vault was a film series showcasing forgotten gems. All films were shown at the Ellice Theatre (at Sherbrook) free of charge.
