Joe Palooka in Humphrey Takes a Chance (1950) as Anne Howe Palooka
The Square Deal Boxing Corporation (crooked as a snake's hind leg), through Gordon Rogers (Tom Neal), tries to make a deal with Knobby Walsh (Leon Errol) whereby it will own thirty percent of the contract with Heavyweight Champion Joe Palooka (Joe Kirkwood Jr.) Knobby refuses, saying even in West Wokkington Falls he could stage a record bout. He only mentions the town because that is where he is going with Joe and his wife, Anne Howe Palooka (Lois Collier), to visit their friend Humphrey Pennyworth (Robert Coogan). Rogers assumes Walsh is going to stage a bout between Palooka and Pennyworth and hastens to block it. Rogers tricks Pennyworth into signing with him for a bout and then arranges for the crooked town mayor, Phiffeny (Jack Kirkwood), and his cousins who run the town to erect a fight stadium. Knobby tells Humphrey that the only way to get out of his contract is a recall election replacing the present town officials with honest ones. Humphrey, the most-liked citizen agrees to run for mayor. At a campaign picnic, a child actress hired by Rogers rushes up to the unmarried candidate, crying "Daddy."

Girl on the Spot (1946) as Kathy Lorenz
Eleven Gilbert & Sullivan numbers are melded within the murder-mystery plot of "Girl on the Spot", with a result that either G&S and/or the plot are always seemingly on stage-wait or in the wings awaiting a cue. Lois Collier is the girl-on-the-spot of the title because she was on the scene of a murder. The police conclude she didn't do it and they use her to set a trap for the real killer, a G&S addict, by financing a Broadway production starring Collier. The police department evidently found the money for financing a Broadway show under "Misc.Expenses" in the city budget.
