Stowaway (1936) - All Things Have Two Prices Ching-Ching (Shirley Temple), the orphan daughter of missionaries and now a refugee, forgotten by her negligent escort, wanders Shanghai seeking food for her dog, and meets benevolent American Tommy (Robert Young), his first scene in Stowaway, 1936.
Stowaway (1936) - You Gotta S-M-I-L-E At port in Hong Kong, enjoying a show with friends Tommy and Susan (Robert Young, Alice Faye), who are not (yet) a couple, orphan Ching-Ching (Shirley Temple, with a song by Harry Revel and Mack Gordon) reveals hidden talents, with impressions, in 20th Century-Fox's Stowaway, 1936.

Song Of The Thin Man (1947) - It Couldn't Have Been Somerset Maugham Nick (William Powell) with Asta is on the dock looking to get out to the gambling boat where the murder happened, thus meeting officer Callahan (James Burke), cook Sadie (Esther Howard), a boatman (Harry Burns) and another cop Davis (Tom Dugan), mostly comedy, in MGM’s Song Of The Thin Man, 1947.
Song Of The Thin Man (1947) - Mrs. Charles Always Wears Her Mouth Open Clarinet player “Klinker” (Keenan Wynn) is helping Nick (William Powell) find a fellow musician so he meets Nora (Myrna Powell) but they’re intercepted by bookie Amboy (William Bishop) who thinks Nick has proof he didn’t kill the bandleader, in the last title in the MGM series, Song Of The Thin Man, 1947.

Swing Fever (1943) - That Symphonietta Guy Kay Kyser is the bumbling Southerner in a New York composing house whose sheet music has been snatched, appealing to the secretary (Pamela Blake) with a weird trick until the camera gets stopped by 21-year old MGM contract player, Ava Gardner, in a bit part, in Swing Fever, 1943.
