Editorial Reviews

Check into a hotbed of lethal cloak and dagger in Shack Out on 101. An attractive waitress (Terry Moore) at a seaside caf‚ gets caught in a web of treacherous intrigue when she discovers that her workplace is a secret station for spies. It seems that the caf‚ is close to an experimental lab that harbors national defense secrets and a frantic ring of sinister spies have come to steal them. It's now up to the desperate waitress and a network of undercover FBI agents to stop the diabolical scheme, but not before they all stop along the way for a sizzling round of passion and romance. The stellar cast includes Hollywood legend Lee Marvin (Point Blank), Frank Lovejoy (The Americano), Keenan Wynn (The Mechanic) and Whit Bissell (He Walked by Night). Stylishly directed by cult director Edward Dein (Curse of the Undead) and beautifully shot in glorious black-and-white by the great Floyd Crosby (High Noon).

Customer Reviews

Quility of the dvd was great.
Dennis debiose
Not only is the entire premise bizarre, but the characterizations, the dialogue, and the amazing set pieces are weird beyond the lot of mortal man.
Candace E Kalish
Plenty of movies are so bad, they're good.

SHACK OUT ON 101 (Allied Artists, 1955) is a movie that's in a class all by itself. The plot - which is really unimportant - centers around a seaside cafe that turns out to be a secret outpost for espionage agents. What IS important is the way writer/director Edward Dien manages to turn a totally nonsensical premise into pure gold entertainment through the expertise of a powerhouse cast, making this one of the greatest cult films of all time.

'50's "tomato" Terry Moore stars as a waitress working at Keenan Wynn's hamburger joint where greasy ol' "Slob" - Lee Marvin - also works as a cook. Frank Lovejoy is Moore's professor/undercover FBI agent/boyfriend, and Whit Bissell is a shell-shocked WW2 veteran. Sandwiched in between the mostly unintentionally hilarious dialog we have Marvin turning out to be the head of a spy ring that's stealing national defense secrets. Everyone delivers such sincere performances that they manage to put it over despite the implausibilities. There's never a dull moment in this definitive '50's drive-in classic.

SHACK OUT ON 101 is one of those movies that's been crying to be released on disc, and Olive Films has finally answered the call with a gorgeous looking Blu-ray transfer that does justice to Floyd Crosby's crisp, black and white cinematography. The film is presented in its correct 1.78:1 aspect ratio. There are no extras.

This is a personal favorite and it's about time it's been given the proper treatment. I only wish Terry Moore would've done a commentary.

My highest recommendation.

The story takes place almost exclusively on one set, the titular restaurant. Lee Marvin, plays Slob, a short order cook, with a secret agenda. He is actually buying nuclear secrets form a scientist (Whitt Bissel) from a local top secret government facility (sound familiar yet?). Terry Moore has the distinction of being not only the waitress with the easiest job in the free world (most of her shifts last about 5 minutes), she is also sexually harassed by every one of her coworkers, her boss, and all but one customer. She is trying to better herself by taking the civil service exam, and getting a government job. I guess waiting tables for 30 minutes a day is too much work for her. I know I am sounding sarcastic, but this is one of those odd films I saw on late night TV, and when I told my friends about it, they all claimed I was making it up. Now that it's on video, I have shown it too them, and as far as I know, they all bought copies to. So impress your friends, with this forgotten gem of cold war paranoia gone totally berzerk!

Very enjoyable film about Lee Marvin and Keenan Wynn and espionage. Terry Moore is a goddess and she's a lot of fun to watch in this film. It's wacky and serious and melodramatic and totally unlike other cold war films. Watch it or buy it, but do it soon. It's a rollicking good time!

"Shack Out on 101" on Blu-Ray? You've got to be kidding me. On one level this is a run of the mill Cold War film noir staged in a diner near a (nuclear) research lab. On another level it's got a menacing early Lee Marvin performance as a fry crook named Slob (yes: Slob) who may be more than he seems. Into this mix add Keenan Wynn for some truly bizarre moments (lifting weights with Lee Marvin's Slob or playing with deep sea fishing equipment). Not great film noir, but entertaining as they come -- and amazing to find this long unavailable film on blu-ray.

Shack Out on 101 (Edward Dein, 1955)

Really, did someone think that it was a good idea to combine a beach-blanket picture with a Graham Greene-style spy thriller? Someone must have, because the result is Shack Out on 101, a piece of silliness by the director most known for being responsible for The Leech Woman, that immortal tale of, well, a leech woman. Yeah, that's the kind of "what were they thinking?" mentality responsible for this one, too.

The movie centers around a little diner in the middle of nowhere. It's got an owner (Keenan Wynn), a mediocre fry cook (Lee Marvin), and a gorgeous cashier (Terry Moore), as well as a bunch of delivery people who seem as if they're also the place's only customers. The big news, however, is that Slob, the fry cook, is the lynchpin in a smuggling ring that's funneling secrets from the local nuclear weapons research facility to the commies. Or something like that. It's kind of hard to tell, because the script here seems as if it were an afterthought, put together for the sole purpose of getting a large number of stars in one place and giving them the kind of anti-communist screed to parrot that played well during the McCarthy years.

While there's little of worth to be had here from any standpoint, there are quite a few decent laughs here. Some are intentional, some not, but the end result is the same. Marvin and Wynn both chew scenery as much as possible, probably egged on from behind the camera to give their over-the-top silliest, while Moore is a walking, talking Spy Hard version of a Beach Blanket Bingo "I'm not an airhead, I just play one on TV" character. The whole thing is so ludicrous it ends up being kind of fun; don't go in expecting a high-octane noir thriller (as I did) and you'll have a great deal of fun with this. **
