CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Charles Riesner. Ed Wynn, Charles ``Chic'' Sale, Dorothy Mackaill, William ``Stage'' Boyd, Effie Ellsler, C. Henry Gordon, Mickey Rooney, George Givot, Nat Pendleton. Designed to cash in on Wynn's radio popularity, this clumsy film has a script problem: no one bothered to write one! After getting Ed involved in a kidnapping plot, and some innocuous love interest, it winds up at Wynn's radio show, where he describes the plot to announcer Graham McNamee... and it ends. Not a moment too soon.

D: William Clemens. Mickey Rooney, Dennis Moore, Patricia Ellis, Willie Best, Gordon Hart, Gordon (William) Elliott, Virginia Brissac. Rooney plays a wayward jockey who is taken in by a wealthy couple and given a chance to redeem himself by winning the big race. Naturally, racketeers have other ideas. Formula horse-racing yarn made watchable by the always energetic Rooney and some well-staged racing scenes.

Andy (played by a 26-year-old Rooney) returns to college after serving in WW2 to find that his sweetheart is engaged to someone else. The naive Hardy sentimentality was out of tune with the postwar mood and the series came to a close after this (although a reunion film was made 12 years later).

D: Clarence Brown. Norma Shearer, Lionel Barrymore, Clark Gable, Leslie Howard, James Gleason. A hard-drinking, free-swinging attorney successfully defends gangster Gable on a murder rap--then finds to his dismay that his equally free-spirited daughter has fallen in love with him.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Monta Bell. John Gilbert, Paul Lukas, Virginia Bruce, Hedda Hopper, Reginald Owen, Olga Baclanova. Crackling, adult drama about a heel who sleeps and cajoles his way from one wealthy household to another--using both the mistresses of the houses upstairs and the servants downstairs. Gilbert delivers an audacious performance that more than any other redeems his maligned reputation as a ``talkie'' actor; he also gets story credit for the film. Leading lady Bruce was then his wife. Karen Morley appears unbilled in final scene.

Potent melodrama with Barthelmess as an American Everyman who manages to survive one calamity after another--from morphine addiction (as a result of a WW1 injury) to job-hunting during the Depression--and continues to endure, like the country itself. Ambitious script by Wilson Mizner and Robert Lord tackles everything from the hypocrisy of hero worship to Communism! A fascinating social document of the early 1930s.

Powerful gangster film is the most potent of the 1930s, with Muni delivering emotionally charged performance as Capone-like mobster with more than just a soft spot for his sister (Dvorak). Raw, harsh, and brimming with unsubtle symbolism; five writers include Ben Hecht and W.R. Burnett. Filmed in 1931, release delayed by censors. The full title is SCARFACE, THE SHAME OF THE NATION.

Henry V (1944)

Shakespeare's tale of the warrior king who learns the meaning of heroism during a daring invasion of France.

Laurence Olivier, Robert Newton, Leslie Banks, Renee Asherson, Esmond Knight, Leo Genn, Ralph Truman, Harcourt Williams, Ivy St. Helier, Ernest Thesiger, Max Adrian, George Cole, Felix Aylmer, Robert Helpmann, Freda Jackson, Jimmy Hanley, John Laurie. Olivier's masterful rendition of Shakespeare play is a cinematic treat, filmed in rich color and framed by ingenious presentation of a typical performance at the Globe theater during 1500s. This earned Olivier a special Academy Award "for his outstanding achievement as actor, producer, and director in bringing HENRY V to the screen.''

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Howard W Koch. Mamie Van Doren, Jeff Richards, Arthur Hunnicutt, Carol Ohmart, Tom Duggan, Jeanne Carmen. Rodeo star Richards divides his time between busting broncos and busting heads of lecherous old cowpokes trying to paw Mamie. Not bad enough to be really funny, but it has its moments; Mamie sings five of film's eight songs, including unforgettable "I'm Just a Nice, Sweet, Home-Type of Girl."

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Joshua Logan. Marilyn Monroe, Don Murray, Arthur O'Connell, Betty Field, Eileen Heckart, Hope Lange, Hans Conried, Casey Adams. The film that finally proved Monroe really could act; excellent comedy-drama about innocent cowboy (Murray) who falls for saloon singer and decides to marry her-- without bothering to ask. Fine performances by all, with MM's famed rendition of ``(That Old) Black Magic'' a highlight; adapted by George Axelrod from the William Inge play. Film debuts of Murray and Lange (who subsequently married). Some older TV prints are titled THE WRONG KIND OF GIRL. Later a brief TV series. CinemaScope.

D: Frank Capra. Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert, Walter Connolly, Roscoe Karns, Alan Hale, Ward Bond. Legendary romantic comedy doesn't age a bit. Still as enchanting as ever, with reporter Gable and runaway heiress Colbert falling in love on rural bus trip. Hitch-hiking travails, the Walls of Jericho, other memorable scenes remain fresh and delightful. First film to win all five major Oscars: Picture, Actor, Actress, Director, and Screenplay (Robert Riskin). Based on Samuel Hopkins Adams' story "Night Bus,'' originally published in Cosmopolitan.

D: Erich von Stroheim. Mae Murray, John Gilbert, Roy D'Arcy, Tully Marshall, Josephine Crowell. A playboy prince (Gilbert) falls in love with an American showgirl (Murray). Lavish, well-produced silent version of the Franz Lehar operetta is probably von Stroheim's most "normal'' film, though he still manages to inject his usual bizarre touches (including a character with a foot fetish). See if you can spot young Clark Gable as an extra. Remade twice.
