8.
One Girl's Confession (1953) as Johnny
Another of the "Fate and Irony" films from director-writer-producer-actor Hugo Hass but this one has less hair-shirt torment than most of his offerings, although his camera, as usual, lingers provocatively on the contours of the leading lady and, in this case, the leading lady is more than well-contured. Mary Adams (the well-contured Cleo Moore) works in a tawdry waterfront restuarant where the owner not only maltreats her, he also cheated her father out of a fortune years ago. The owner acquires $25,000 in an illegal transaction, which Mary promptly steals, hides, confesses her crime and serves a short sentence. Freed, she goes to work in a restaurant owned by Dragomie Damitrod (Hugo Hass) and when he gets into trouble over a gambling debt she offers to help him by telling him where the $25,000 is hidden and she will loan him the amount he needs. But circumstances indicate that he has stolen all of the money and she clouts him on the head with a whiskey bottle, apparently killing him. She then learns that he didn't steal the money, digs it up and donates it to an orphanage and then surrenders to the police where she learns that Damitrod is not dead. Well,dang. But all is not lost as she seems to be heading for matrimony with fisherman Johnny (Glenn Langan), who has been hanging around romancing her at her various jobs between jail stints.

12.
Treasure of Monte Cristo (1949) as Edmund Dantes
This modern tale borrows from an old story in establishing Langan, who works on a ship that docks in San Francisco, as a descendant of the Count of Monte Cristo. Crooked Lawyer Brodie sets up a scheme to get at the treasure of Langan's famed ancestor, and using the beautiful blonde Jergens, tries to lure Langan into a trap. Langan proves worthy of his heritage, using a gun instead of a sword, and wins legitimately both his forturne and Jergens.

The Homestretch (1947) as Bill Van Dyke III
A film that qualifies as a Travelogue Documentary in that it contains footage of world-famous race tracks such as England's Ascot, Palermo in South America, and Churchill Downs, Jamaica, Aqueduct, Hollywood Park, Santa Anita, Belmont, Hialeah, Arlington and Saratoga in the United States, and since it begins in London in 1938, the Coronation of the King. Jock Wallace (Cornel Wilde), an easy-going and rootless horse lover, is taken to task by Leslie Hale (Maureen O'Hara), who thinks he has swindled her Aunt Helen (Ethel Griffies) on the purchase of a horse. He finds out that she is engaged to Bill Van Dyke (Glenn Langan), a young diplomat, and follows her to London , entering the horse he acquired from Aunt Helen in the famed Ascot Gold Cup. Jock and Leslie fall in love and are married on a boat to South America. In Buenos Aires, Leslie is jealous of Kitty Brant (Helen Walker), an old flame of Jock's. Leslie wants Jock to settle down on his Maryland farm to raise and sell race horses, but he has too much gypsy in his blood and wants to follow the race-track circuit. They separate and he gives Leslie the horse that brought them together, and he hits the road. Leslie and old-time trainer "Doc" Ellbourne (James Gleason) then proceed to win race after race with the horse. Jock, contrite and converted, returns to his old homestead and begins training another horse. Will his horse beat her horse?
