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).

5.0 out of 5 stars LONG OVER DUE RELEASE OF THIS CULT CLASSIC November 8, 2013
By Casey62
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Campy at times, but a cult classic! September 18, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars A real treat.... November 11, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
"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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stacked Out on 101 September 25, 2002
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Cute, curvy Terry Moore is definitely watchable in this oddball propaganda flick. As a sweet, niave waitress in an isolated hashhouse and the only gal around, she's the hub around which most of the action revolves. Several men lust for her, most notably Keenan Wynn, the gruff beanery proprietor, Lee Marvin, the slovenly hashslinger he calls Slob, and Frank Lovejoy, an undercover fed who's romancing Moore while getting the goods on Marvin. The movie seems intended as a red-scare soaper and would have been better had it been more menace and less suds. Too much time is expended on guys groping Moore and verbal-barb back-and-forth between Wynn and Marvin. Sometimes, you get the feeling that the director told the actors to camp it up to fill in time. One particularly odd scene has antagonists Wynn and Marvin exercising, bare-chested, in the diner's eating area. The usual sparring is barely perceptible, and the two check out each other's flabby pecs while jesting jovially. The effect is hokily homoerotic, pointedly so when Moore walks in and the men bolt for cover--as though she caught them in flagrante! Apparently the filmmakers figured Americans had already gotten the anti-Marxist message. So they chose to beat in some time poking fun at gentle guys--Whit Bissell in this case--who are put off by bloodletting and killing for sport. As a war-weary vet, Bissell seems more together than any of the men except hero Lovejoy, who tells Bissell he needs a psychiatrist--that only professional help can assist him. (An overobvious plug for the emerging psychiatric establishment?) One gets the feeling that if Marvin is a red, Bissell might be a pinko for not wanting to spear a fish! The movie has funny moments of the yuck-yuck caliber, but little of the campy commie humor one would expect. Guys of middle-school mentality, however, should love it!
