Rack, The (1956) - Traitor We don’t know what’s up with just-returned Korean War POW Ed (Paul Newman), except that he’s afraid of his family, and doesn’t want to leave the hospital, as he takes in the entertainment (Debbie Reynolds in MGM’s The Affairs Of Dobie Gillis), and fellow patient Lee Marvin gives us a clue, in MGM’s The Rack, 1956.
Rack, The (1956) - He Made A Strategic Withdrawal Now in a San Francisco hotel after a big fight with his career-military father, who found out he’s being court-martialed for cooperating with the enemy, just-returned Korean War POW Ed (Paul Newman), who considers himself guilty, gets a first visit from his defense attorney, Edmond O’Brien, in MGM’s The Rack, 1956.
Rack, The (1956) - I Didn't Want You To See Me Like This First direct meeting between Anne Francis as widowed sister-in-law Aggie, Walter Pidgeon as career-military dad Col. Hall Sr. and Paul Newman as Korean War POW Capt. Hall, on the day of his return to California, so traumatized he forgets his brother was Killed In Action, in The Rack, 1956, from a Rod Serling teleplay.
Rack, The (1956) - Where Are Your Ribbons? Reluctant JAG prosecutor (Wendell Corey as Maj.

Rack, The (1956) - He Was Killed Over There Opening, with Walter Pidgeon and Anne Francis, not long after they appeared as father and daughter in Forbidden Planet, also for MGM, they’re war-widow and father-in-law, not quite greeting POW Paul Newman, returning from Korea, in The Rack, 1956, from a Rod Serling teleplay.
Monster That Challenged The World, The (1957) - This Is Flutterboy Two Four Two Joining the opening narration on U.S. Navy operations on the Salton Sea, the earth quakes as seamen Johnson and Sanders (Jody McCrea, William Swan) support a routine parachute jump, in the independent Sci-Fi feature The Monster That Challenged The World, 1955.
Monster That Challenged The World, The (1957) - A Simple Marine Secretion Tim Holt is the tough new commander at the Navy station at the Salton Sea in California, here meeting civilian employee Gail (Audrey Dalton), then scientist Rogers (Hans Conreid), and later young Sandy (Mimi Gibson), after a weird attack that left sailors dead, early in The Monster That Challenged The World, 1955.
Monster That Challenged The World, The (1957) - I'm A Big Girl Now First in the diner with her mom (Sarah Selby) then at the Salton Sea beach with Morty (Bob Beneveds), prefiguring Steven Spielberg's Jaws, 1975, Jody (Barbara Darrow) encounters the mollusk, in The Monster That Challenged The World, 1957.
Monster That Challenged The World, The (1957) - Get Help! The equivalent of "We Need A Bigger Boat," just after our first glimpse of the title creature, as Dr. Rogers (Hans Conreid) and Cmdr.Twillinger (Tim Holt), with frog-men, search the Salton Sea for bodies and strange phenomena, and find them, in The Monster That Challenged The World, 1957.
Anna Lucasta (1958) - Burn This Unlike every other stage or screen production of the title, this one has a mambo-dance number for sailor-turned-cabbie Danny (Sammy Davis Jr.), partying with ex-girlfriend Eartha Kitt (title character), who's had a change of heart just hours after getting married, in Anna Lucasta, 1958.
Anna Lucasta (1958) - Opening, That's Anna With a title tune written by composer Elmer Bernstein and Sammy Cahn, Sammy Davis Jr. vocal opening his first movie as an actor, Eartha Kitt in the title role as a San Diego streetwalker, the 1958 re-working of screenwriter Philip Yordan's Anna Lucasta.
