Sweetheart of Sigma Chi (1946) as Assistant Director
The always-welcome Elyse Knox and her All-American footballer turned broadcaster husband Tom Harmon appear together in this film but are not romantically involved, as she is the co-ed "sweetheart" of the title and he coaches the Varsity rowing crew. Some source describes Miss Knox as a B-actress. A more apt and better description would be one that describes her as an Actress who never got out of B-movies. This one is about half plot and half music but the plot is stretched pretty thin to cover 35 of the 75 minutes when it essentially boils down to: a couple of gamblers pressure the local night club(soft drinks only)owner to rig things so the local college rowing crew will lose their upcoming race. End of plot when the cowswain of the home team uses a rabbit's foot to plug the hole the gamblers cut in the bottom of their racing shell. Two of 1945's top hits, "Five Minutes More" and Slim Gaillard's "Cement Mixer, Putti-Putti" are performed, although some people who heard "Cement Mixer" in 1945 are still wondering what it was all about.

The Outlaw's Daughter (1954) as Producer
Border City Rustlers (1953) as Producer
In 1953 in the United States, there were more homes without television sets than there were with, so William F. Broidy's Newhall Productions would paste two of the 30-minute episodes of The Wild Bill Hickok TV series together and Allied Artists would sell it as a 60-minute feature to theatres. The first half of "Border City Rustlers" is from an unknown-to-me episode (I was one of the citizens who didn't have a TV set in 1953) in which Wild Bill (Guy Madison) and his deputy Jingles P. Jones (Andy Devine) arrive in Green Springs just after the mayor has been killed in a gun battle. The town's Old Maid, Hepsibah (Isabel Randolph), stirs up the other townswomen and is elected mayor. Wild Bill and Jingles help her prove that the local judge (George Eldredge) is behind the town's reign of terrorism. Wild and Jingles saddle up and ride over to Border City (from the episode called "Border City")to mix it up with a gang of international cattle rustlers where, helped by Consuelo (Gloria Talbot), daughter of a Mexican cattle baron, and her cousin Ramon (George J. Lewis), the two marshals nab cattle buyer Flint Kirby (Murray Alper) as the head of the rustlers. Those of us who didn't have TV sets figured Wild Bill and Jingles were twice as good as the usual western heroes as they only took half the usual time to clean up a situation. No, we really didn't. One didn't have to have a telly to figure out these were on-the-cheap productions. The cast order in the theatre-released films is not the same as that shown on the original TV episodes, as Newhall Productions and/or Allied Artists would crunch both casts together to get the better-known names closer to the top.
