Cast (feature film)

1.
The Return of the Whistler (1948) as Ted Nichols
When a woman goes missing on the eve of her wedding, her fiancee hires a detective to track her down.
2.
Glamour Girl (1948) as Johnny Evans
3.
The Woman from Tangier (1948) as Ned Rankin
It's in B&W, has a sultry dame, much crime, set in the 40's, and many dark scenes, so the biggest surprise is that somebody hasn't dubbed this "film noir", since that seems to be the rivisionist guidelines of late. Whatever, any film that has the two leading ladies called "Nylon" and "Flo-Flo" deserves some attention just for that. This one has Nylon (Adele Jergens, born to play a character named Nylon), an American dancer fleeing Morocco after her employer gets into trouble with the police, and she stops off at Tangier on her way to Gibraltar, and that begs the question of why this wasn't titled "Woman from Morocco." $50,000 is stolen from the ship's safe and the captain tells the police that the purser was the thief and that he had to kill him in self defense, but the purser must have hidden the money before he got dead. The purser isn't in any position to make a disclaimer. Everybody buys that with the exception of an insurance detective (Stephen Dunne) who, along with the audience, suspects the captain of being the thief. With Nylon's help, he discovers that her old Morocco employer was actually the thief and was working with the captain.
4.
The Prince of Thieves (1948) as Sir Allan Claire
Robin Hood (Jon Hall) aids Lady Marian (Patricia Morison) and her brother (Michael Duane)to rescue the latter's betrothed Lady Christabel (Adele Jergens)from her father's house where she is being forced into a marriage against her will. The father recaptures his daughter and kidnaps Marian in the bargain. Robin gathers all of the merry men and a couple of grouches and routs the father's soldiers and slays him and his nephew. Friar Tuck (Alan Mowbray) then performs a triple wedding uniting Robin and Marian; the brother and the now-fatherless Christabel; and Little John (Walter Sande) and a handmaiden named Maude (Robin Raymond.)
