While not Maria Montez's first film with credit billing, this is the one that Universal used to launch her sex-sand-sarong (the sandals came later) career---"Maria Montez-The Screen's New Blaze of Excitement"--- that lasted over four years until she was usurped by Yvonne DeCarlo. The taglines here were just a warn-up for what was to come---"Daring Days! Exotic Nights! in a forbidden Pagan Paradise" and one even foreshadowed the title of one of her future films; "WHITE SAVAGE! Daughter of Eve...with a Soul of Satan! Lashing men and beasts to hate...and a forbidden Pagan Paradise!" The plotline says four men, Brian Donlevy, Brod Crawford, Andy Devine and Henry Wilcoxin, drift ashore to an exotic island where they meet a beautiful native girl. All become more than a little smitten with Melahi (Maria Montez), with the exception of Andy Devine who is only concerned about not becoming a meal for her pet leopard. They don't make 'em like this anymore.

Accidents Will Happen (1938) as Dorsey

The Spy Ring (1938) as Timothy O'Reilly
The absence of stagecoaches and covered wagons didn't keep director Joseph H. "Wagon Wheel" Lewis from employing his usual camera set-ups of shooting scenes from behind and through various props and fixtures, and the inclusion of a polo game enabled him to get his usual "hitching post" shot, in addition to shooting over and through automobile hood ornaments, champange bottles, baloons and mirror reflections. The soure that dubbed this one in the "musical" genre obviously never saw the film, as there are no songs and only a rinky-dink piece of music used at the Officer's Club dance. This one is about a gang of independent spys after a cigar-shaped device that guarantees accuracy on artillery and large weapons. The spys are headed by Paul Douglas (LeRoy Mason), Jean Bruce (Esther Ralston billed as Jane Carleton) and Frank Denton (Leon Ames), while Captain Todd Hayden (William Hall, in one of his rare starring roles and actually solo- billed above the title) is the protector of the device, and in love with the Colonel's daughter, Elaine Burdette (Jane Wyman, at the peak of her cute, bubbly and pouty stage.) Most of the action is placed at the Presido in Montery and most of it revolves around the outcome of a polo match between the Cavalry team and a civilian team called "The Rainbows", which star player Hayden has to throw in order to catch the spys.

Outlaw Express (1938) as Andy [Sharpe]

Davidson), sponsor of the Crunchie Munchie Hour, and loses his job. He hears that station WBAM in Valley Falls needs a new manager and heads there. Stumbling into the wrong station, WVOX, he meets Jane Arledge (Judith Barrett), program manager for local town-magnate, Harry Fox (Charles Brokaw.) She directs him to WBAM and he finds it is a collection of junk in an abandoned stable. Humiliated, he boasts to Jane that he will put the old station on its feet again. He sends for his announcer friend, Tiny Martin (Don Wilson), after convincing station-owner Pete Jones (Spencer Charters) that Martin can give valuable aid in reviving the station. Merchants fear to use WBAM, although they despise Fox and his crony, Mayor Applegate (Ferris Taylor), who is up for re-election. Learning that the merchants are holding a secret meeting, George uses a ruse to broadcast their suspicions about Fox and Applegate. They repudiate the statements, but George prepares another strong blast against them for a later broadcast. This angers Janes, who believes the attacks on her boss are unjustified and she tells George he should return to New York. While George waits for his train, Jane learns that Fox and Applegate have connived to loot the town treasury and, with Martin, she rushes to WBAM and adds her own evidence to the charges prepared previously by George and reads them over the air.
