COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS

Cast (feature film)

1.
Babes in Bagdad (1952) as Hassan
Hassan (John Boles), the Kadi of Bagdad, has a harem housing 12 beauties, but concentrates his attention on Zohara (Gypsy Rose Lee). A newcomer, Kyra (Paulette Goddard), introduces rebellion into the by the unheard of act of complaining to the Caliph about the lot of the women in the harem. Hassan suffers a greater shock when his God-son, Ezar (Richard Ney), asserts that women are the equal of men. They make a wager under which Ezar must settle down with a conventional harem unless Zohara can outwit Hassan within ten days.
2.

3.
Between Us Girls (1942) as Steve [J. Forbes]
Carrie (Diana Barrymore), ambitious young actress and her manager Mike Kilinsky (Andy Devine), travel east from Chicago to Long Island so Carrie can see the new mansion that her mother Chris (Kay Francis) has just purchased. Chris is not there when Carrie arrives by Gallagher (Ethel Griffies), the family major domo, tells Carrie that Chris is in love with the very rich Steve (John Boles.) Chris confesses to Carrie that she has lied about her age to Steve, claiming to be 31, and that the photograph of Carrie is Carrie's (non-existent) Aunt Sadie and Carrie is only twelve. Carrie insists that her mother keep up the masquerade, and she will pose as a 12-year-old. Steve arrives and brings with him his friend Jimmy Blake (Robert Cummings). More than a little confusion follows including Carrie starting a fight with another "kid" to keep Jimmy from keeping a date with his fiancee and Mike escorting Chris and the "under-age" Carrie to a night club, and other incidents that only tend to prove that Steve and Jimmy aren't the brightest bulbs shining. Diana Barrymore is better as the 12-year-old than she is later playing Joan of Arc in a Detroit theatre, where the light finally dawns on the perplexed Robert Cummings character.
