That Hagen Girl (1947) - There's Nothing To Tell Panic in the small Midwestern town to which Ronald Reagan, as lawyer Tom, has just returned, because Shirley Temple (title character) appears to have drowned herself, because she just learned that everyone (wrongly) thinks she’s his illegitimate daughter, Rory Calhoun and Conrad Janis her spurned boyfriends, Dorothy Peterson and Charles Kemper her adoptive parents, Guy Wilkerson as Link, in That Hagen Girl, 1947.
Woman In The Window, The (1944) - Some Psychological Aspects Of Homicide Opening doesn’t seem for a moment incidental, establishing Edward G. Robinson as composed professor Wanley, Dorothy Peterson his wife departing for the summer with the kids, Raymond Massey and Edmond Breon as his friendly colleagues, and a portrait of Joan Bennett, in Fritz Lang’s chilling The Woman In The Window, 1944.
Mr. Skeffington (1944) - Some Committed Suicide New York, 1914, having left a gang of suitors in her drawing room, we learn that Walter Abel is cousin George to top-billed Bette Davis, in her first scene as socialite Fanny, her brother Trippy (Richard Waring) joining them, early in Mr. Skeffington,1944, with Claude Rains in the title role.
Treasure Island (1934) - Billy Bones At the party for his innkeeper mother (Dorothy Peterson), Jack (Jackie Cooper) observes the arrival of cranky Billy Bones (Lionel Barrymore), early in MGM's hit 1934 production of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, directed by Victor Fleming.
Treasure Island (1934) - Flint's Fist Jack (Jackie Cooper) and his mum (Dorothy Peterson) search the belongings of lodger Billy Bones (Lionel Barrymore), who has just died after being confronted by Blind Pew (William V. Mong), who returns with cohorts, but flees when Livesey (Otto Kruger) arrives, in MGM's Treasure Island, 1934.
Dark Victory (1939) - That Cold Scientific Eye Family Doc Parsons (Henry Travers) has maneuvered symptomatic but defiant socialite Judith (Bette Davis) into the path of brain surgeon Steele (George Brent) who, himself traumatized over a patient's death, had been departing to begin his new career in research, in Dark Victory, 1939.
Payment Deferred (1932) -- Is It True He's A Banker? Framing device from the original play, Billy Bevan a neighbor and Halliwell Hobbes a prospective tenant, as we meet the Marble family of London, Dorothy Peterson, Charles Laughton and Maureen O’Sullivan as Annie, Willie and Winnie, in MGM’s grim Payment Deferred, 1932.
Payment Deferred (1932) -- Rough Luck And No Mistake Insolvent Londoners Willie and Annie Marble (Charles Laughton) are certain the caller (Ray Milland) greeted by daughter Winnie (Maureen O’Sullivan) will be a bailiff with bad news, and stunned to discover he’s a well-heeled long-lost relative, early in MGM’s Payment Deferred, 1932.
Payment Deferred (1932) -- Perhaps Your Father Needs A Rest After his barely off-screen murder of his wealthy nephew who appeared from Australia, we surmise that broke London bank clerk Willie (Charles Laughton) has buried him in the back yard, his wife and daughter (Dorothy Peterson, Maureen O’Sullivan) in the dark, in Payment Deferred, 1932.
