Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1956) - I Am Not Insane! Director Don Siegel’s perfectly efficient opening, Whit Bissell from the state mental hospital joins the ER doc Richard Deacon, who seems rightly concerned about Kevin McCarthy, as suburban GP Miles, who insists he’s not lost mind, from the original Invasion Of The Body Snatchers, 1956.
Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1956) - Uncle Ira Was Uncle Ira Well into the flashback from unglued suburban doctor Miles (Kevin McCarthy), he recalls telling anxious Wilma (Virginia Christine) that her uncle (Tom Fadden) appears unchanged, her cousin Becky (Dana Wynter) trying to reassure, early in Invasion Of The Body Snatchers, 1956.
Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1956) - Where's Your Girlfriend's Double? Town shrink Dan (Larry Gates) is the naysayer, though we know doc Miles (Kevin McCarthy) did see a dormant body double of his girlfriend, and with Jack (King Donovan) saw another, dad Driscoll (Kenneth Patterson) and a cop (Guy Wray) annoyed, in Invasion Of The Body Snatchers, 1956.
Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1956) - It's No Dead Man So far doc Miles (Kevin McCarthy), newly enchanted by his old high school flame Becky (Dana Wynter), has heard only of a widespread delusion in town, but writer pal Jack (King Donovan) and wife (Carolyn Jones) have found something way more weird, in Invasion Of The Body Snatchers, 1956.
Roughshod (1949) - Puttin' Up Fences And Passin' Laws Homesteader Jed (Jeff Corey) discovers three drovers murdered by escaped convicts in the opening, bringing them to Aspen, Nevada, when he meets the ladies (Gloria Grahame as Mary, leading Myrna Dell, Martha Hyer, and Jeff Donnell as Elaine) headed for Sonora, early in Roughshod, 1949, starring Robert Sterling.
Roughshod (1949) - Stick To Rabbits We’ve just met Clay (Robert Sterling), with kid brother Steve (Claude Jarman Jr.), hearing from the sheriff (Edward Cassidy) in Aspen about the three cowboys killed by three escaped convicts, and he reveals a little more about his interest while shopping with Hayes (Paul Burns), early in director Mark Robson’s Roughshod, 1949.
Roughshod (1949) - I'm Not In His Shoes Rancher Clay (Robert Sterling) and kid brother Steve (Claude Jarman Jr.) are standing guard when Clayton (George Cooper) rides up, looking to rescue Marcia (Martha Hyer), one of the working girls (Gloria Grahame as Mary, with Myrna Dell and Jeff Donnell) they’re escorting to safety, in director Mark Robson’s Roughshod, 1949.
Roadblock (1951) - Does That Make Me Poison? After not-fully meeting in the Cincinnati airport, insurance investigator Joe (Charles McGraw), flying home, deduces that fetching fellow traveler Diane (Joan Dixon) has snagged a half-price fare to L-A by posing as his wife, early in Roadblock, 1951.
Roadblock (1951) - Happiness Doesn't Count On the morning-after being obliged to share a Kansas hotel room because she pretended to be his wife in order to get a cheap seat on a TWA flight to Los Angeles that was grounded by weather, insurance investigator Joe (Charles McGraw) and maybe-grifter Diane (Joan Dixon) get tighter, in Roadblock, 1951.
Roadblock (1951) - So Swell Of You Some weeks after they met by chance and she semi-snubbed him, insurance detective Joe (Charles McGraw), following a series of fur heists, finds Diane (Joan Dixon), who has no visible means of support, on the arm of a notorious crime boss (Lowell Gilmore) at an L-A club, Martha Mears the singer, in Roadblock, 1951.
Phenix City Story, The (1955) - Eye Witness Report Genuine newsman Clete Roberts introduces himself and local reporter Ed Strickland on old-fashioned 16mm film in the first part of the prologue to director Phil Karlson's The Phenix City Story, 1955.
Phenix City Story, The (1955) - I'm Having A Turtle Race Happy Alabama crime boss Tanner (Edward Andrews) and his sly aide Cassie (Jean Carson) are overseeing affairs at the "Poppy Club," as various characters are introduced in Phil Karlson's The Phenix City Story, 1955.
