Movie Clip

Kentucky Kernels (1934) - Nothing But Nets George Stevens directs this unusually warm opening to a comedy-team formula picture, Paul Page as a rich guy ending it all, then the partners, dreamy Bert Wheeler and grouchy Bert Wheeler, passively fishing, in RKO's Kentucky Kernels, 1934.
Kentucky Kernels (1934) - One Silly Little Habit Comedy teammates Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey (specs and cigar, playing a magician) are adopting, from Margaret Dumont, an orphan, for the depressed rich guy they've befriended, and it's troublesome Spanky McFarland, so they meet a cop (Edgar Dearing) too, early in Kentucky Kernels, 1934.
Kentucky Kernels (1934) - One Little Kiss Safe to say they're milking this tune by screenwriters Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby, the last four of six settings, the servant chorus, then Spanky, then Robert Woolsey, last Bert Wheeler with Mary Carlisle, in the Wheeler & Woolsey vehicle Kentucky Kernels, 1934.
High Flyers (1937) - She Is So Stout... The stars are introduced as carnival aviators, Robert Woolsey as bespectacled Pierre, Bert Wheeler as Jerry, dealing with rotund Otto Fries, cop George Irving, then Jack Carson as reporter Dave, whom we discover is tricking them into a jewel heist, in High Flyers, 1937.
High Flyers (1937) - You Need A Hobby Horace Opening with and RKO budget and aesthetic probably not suitable for MGM, a song by Dave Dreyer and Herman Ruby (the credited choreographer is Eduardo Cansino, Rita Hayworth's dad), introducing Jack Carson and Marjorie Lord, then Margaret Dumont and Paul Harvey, then third-billed Lupe Velez, in the Wheeler & Woolsey vehicle High Flyers, 1937.
High Flyers (1937) - I Always Get My Man The song is an original by RKO staffers Dave Dreyer and Herman Ruby, Lupe Velez is lively maid Juanita, doing a Dolores Del Rio schtick, in theory explaining how she proposes the frightened household should deal with the nasty criminals in their midst, in the Wheeler & Woolsey comedy High Flyers, 1937.
Stranger On The Third Floor (1940) - Looking For Somebody? Cub reporter Michael (John McGuire), troubled over his testimony, which led to a conviction in a murder near his apartment, has a second encounter with Peter Lorre (title character), in the celebrated RKO early Film Noir, The Stranger On The Third Floor, 1940.
Stranger On The Third Floor (1940) - What A Gloomy Dump The RKO second-feature often considered the first Film Noir takes a dark turn, as we begin the internal monologue of Michael (John McGuire), whose testimony just clinched a maybe-unjust murder conviction, and he meets the title character (Peter Lorre) in Stranger On The Third Floor, 1940.
Father Takes A Wife (1941) - What Are You Doing In My Clothes? First with shipping magnate “Senior” Osborne (Adolphe Menjou) who’s been giddy and on spending sprees, joined by bothered son “Junior” (John Howard), who’s been covering for him on a christening, and the explanation begins, in Father Takes A Bride, 1941.
Father Takes A Wife (1941) - You'll Always Be An Actress Here we meet actress Leslie (Gloria Swanson, in a comeback role), whom we’ve learned is betrothed to shipping magnate Adolphe Menjou, with her aunt (Helen Broderick), preparing to meet his son before her final performance, in Father Takes A Wife, 1941.
Father Takes A Wife (1941) - Drop Your Anchor, Dear Having argued through several days of their honeymoon, shipping tycoon Frederick (Adolphe Menjou) and just retired actress Leslie (Gloria Swanson) discuss the Latino singer stowaway (Desi Arnaz) who’s just been found on his private yacht, in Father Takes A Wife, 1941.
Men Against The Sky (1940) - What Do They Want For A Buck? Introduced by a barker (Earle Hodgins), Richard Dix is hero Mercedes, an inebriate flier whose barnstorming days are about to end, impressive action, then visited by his dutiful sister (Wendy Barrie), opening RKO’s Men Against The Sky, 1940, screenplay by Nathanael West.
