Movie Clip

Green Dolphin Street (1947) - The Tide May Not Wait None of the principals appear here (except Donna Reed and Lana Turner, as the sisters Patourel, in a portrait) but MGM’s intentions are declared, Dame May Whitty oversees the convent on the fictional Channel Island of St. Pierre, a boffo SF/X backdrop and a visit to Gladys Cooper as the mom, in the 1947 disaster melodrama Green Dolphin Street.
Green Dolphin Street (1947) - It Must Be St. Peter Donna Reed as 1840-something Channel Islander Marguerite is distraught over the (Spoiler!) consecutive deaths of her parents, wakened by the waves at the foot of the cliff-side convent, chooses to approach (though it’s not strictly necessary) through the old smuggler’s cave, thus a dramatic sequence for the MGM special effects team, in Green Dolphin Street, 1947.
Green Dolphin Street (1947) - Big Sea A big earthquake from MGM special effects wizards A. Arnold Gillespie and Warren Newcombe has already begun in what by now must be 1850-something New Zealand, Van Heflin is rescuing Lana Turner while Richard Hart, her husband on a nearby riverboat, is slow to recognize what the natives sense, in Green Dolphin Street, 1947.
It's Always Fair Weather (1955) - The Binge This number known as "The Binge," Andre Previn music, Gene Kelly, co-directing with Stanley Donen, as a de-mobilized WWII vet, with buddies Dan Dailey and Michael Kidd, having hit some bars after learning that his girl got married, early in It's Always Fair Weather, 1955.
Forbidden Planet (1956) - The Conquest And Colonization The animation, score and narration suggesting a landmark in Hollywood science fiction narrative and production values, the opening of Forbidden Planet, 1956, from MGM, with support from Disney animators, starring Leslie Nielsen, Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis and Robby the Robot.
Forbidden Planet - Blood And Fire And Thunder Disney animators loaned to MGM for this display of the "planetary force" facing Commander Adams (Leslie Nielsen) and crew, and awakening Dr. Morbius (Walter Pidgeon) and daughter Altaira (Anne Francis) in Forbidden Planet, 1956.
Belle of New York, The (1952) - Seeing's Believing Joining Fred Astaire (as elated New Yorker "Charlie Hill") walking on air, effects from MGM's Freed Unit, to Harry Warren and Johnny Mercer's "Seeing's Believing," from The Belle of New York, 1952, co-starring Vera-Ellen.
