Movie Clip

Little Annie Rooney (1925) - Let's Go Down Town From the new 4K restoration with Andy Gladbach's score, the opening of producer Mary Pickford's crowd-pleasing comic-drama Little Annie Rooney, 1925, with some scale, Mary (age 32) brawls with the whole neighborhood, focused on Mickey (Joe Butterworth), William Beaudine directing.
Anna And The King Of Siam (1946) - I Am 150 Years Old! Unhappy that she and her son have been situated next to the harem, new governess Anna (Irene Dunne) and son (Richard Lyon) are brought (by royal aide Lee J. Cobb) before the king (Rex Harrison, his first appearance), early in Anna And The King Of Siam, 1946,
Test Pilot (1938) - What's A Little Weather? Just after the opening, mechanic Gunner (Spencer Tracy) perhaps not surprised but annoyed to find his pilot pal Jim (Clark Gable) not resting up before the flight, though he bounces back to meet sponsor Drake (Lionel Barrymore) before take-off, in Victor Fleming's Test Pilot, 1938.
Test Pilot (1938) - I Forgot My Hat Leaving in a huff now that his plane's been fixed, cross-country test pilot Jim (Clark Gable) and Kansas local girl Ann (Myrna Loy) act like they don't care, his buddy Gunner (Spencer Tracy) offering consolation, in MGM's Test Pilot, 1938.
Little Annie Rooney (1925) - You Can All Pay For It! Failing to avoid implication in the sprawling neighborhood dispute her Irish cop father (Walter James) is adjudicating in the front room, Mary Pickford (the producer, in the title role) confesses somewhat, with her fellow toughs agreeing to a settlement, in Little Annie Rooney, 1925.
Little Annie Rooney (1925) - She's A Wildcat! Annie (producer Mary Pickford in the title role) continues her fight with Mickey (Joe Butterworth) until his charming and slightly criminal older brother Joe (William Haines) turns up, showing some interest in his tomboy opponent, in Little Annie Rooney, 1925.
Captains Courageous (1937) - I Got New Kind Of Fish Spoiled schoolboy Harvey (Freddy Bartholomew) sailing to England, makes good on his boast that he could drink six ice-cream sodas, then topples overboard and meets Portugese fisherman Manuel (Spencer Tracy, his first scene), a key moment in MGM’s Captains Courageous, 1937.
Alice In Wonderland (1933) - In Order Of Appearance The unique opening credit sequence, remarkable in many ways including the presentation of the only cast ever to feature both Gary Cooper and Cary Grant, from the Paramount 1933 version of Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland, starring Charlotte Henry, co-written by designer William Cameron Menzies.
Alice In Wonderland (1933) - Everything Is Backward A key technical sequence, Charlotte Henry (title character) through the looking glass, special effects credited to Gordon Jennings and Farciot Edouart, Colin Kenny playing the clock, in Paramount's Alice In Wonderland, 1933, directed by Norman Z. McLeod.
Anna And The King Of Siam (1946) - I Was Married The first scene from the first movie version of the famous story of Anna Leonowens, Irene Dunne the title character, with son Louis (Richard Lyon), her ship's captain (Addison Richards) and a much-darkened Lee J. Cobb (as "Kralahome") greeting, from Anna And The King Of Siam, 1946.
Now And Forever (1934) - You Just Won't Listen Ostensibly reformed con man Jerry (Gary Cooper), now selling real estate on the French Riviera, acting on instructions from wife Toni (Carole Lombard), picks up daughter Penny (Shirley Temple), visiting with Mrs. Crane (Charlotte Granville), who doesn’t know she’s his next mark, in Now And Forever, 1934.
Test Pilot (1938) - We Are In Kansas Midwest engine trouble on his west-to-east coast test flight, pilot Jim (Clark Gable) meets impertinent Ann (Myrna Loy), early in Victor Fleming's Test Pilot, 1938, from an original story by Frank Wead.
