Movie Clip

On An Island With You (1948) — (Movie Clip) Nightingale (Dance) Smitten Navy movie technical adviser Kingsley (Peter Lawford) gets turned down by the star Roz (Esther Williams, backed by her director, Dick Simmons), slipping into a dance number for her fiancè and co-star (Ricardo Montalban) and the second lead (Cyd Charisse), Xaiver Cugat’s group backing with his own composition, in MGM’s On An Island With You, 1948.
Lady In The Lake (1947) - I Like Your Tan Dick Simmons (as pretty-boy Chris Lavery) addresses the camera and director-star Robert Montgomery (as Raymond Chandler's detective Philip Marlowe) in a relatively brief scene from Lady In The Lake, 1947.
Three Daring Daughters (1948) - The Dickey Bird Tess, Alix and Ilka (Jane Powell, Mary Eleanor Donahue, Ann E. Todd) have just been told their fashion-editor single mom (Jeanette MacDonald) needs to take a cruise, and it's settled with a song by Howard Dietz and Sammy Fein, in Three Daring Daughters, 1948, from MGM producer Joe Pasternak.
Three Daring Daughters (1948) - Never A Serious Divorce Sisters Jane Powell, Mary Eleanor Donahue, and Ann E. Todd visit publisher Nelson (Edward Arnold), guarded by his secretary (Dick Simmons), in the mistaken belief that he employs their father, Jane's song "Passepied," attributed to French composer Leo Delibes, in Three Daring Daughters, 1948.
Men Of The Fighting Lady - Not James A. Michener? Opening scene, Kimbrell (Dick Simmons) greets Michener (Louis Calhern, 12 years the writer's senior!) and delivers him to flight surgeon Dowling (Walter Pidgeon), starting the flashback in Men Of The Fighting Lady, 1954.
