Movie Clip

Tamango (1959) -- (Movie Clip) Coast Of Guinea, 1820 Unusually informative, perhaps provocative, opening credit sequence, from the French-Italian co-production, directed by Blacklisted American John Berry, from a story by Prosper Mérimée, introducing Curt Jurgens as Dutch slave ship captain Reiker, from Tamango, 1959, also starring Dorothy Dandridge.
Tamango (1959) -- (Movie Clip) The Blacks Like You Having been visible but obscured in earlier scenes, director John Berry offers the first full view of Dorothy Dandridge as mixed-race Aiche, mistress to Dutch slave ship captain Reiker (Curt Jurgens), and clearly favored by the doctor Corot (Jean Servais), in the French-Italian historical melodrama Tamango, 1959.
Tamango (1959) -- (Movie Clip) Two Men Commit The Same Offense Off West Africa, 1820, on board the illicit slave ship on which the entire picture takes place, Captain Reiker (Curt Jurgens) tries to break a nascent hunger strike, Alex Cressan as the title character not cooperating, and the conflicted doctor Corot (Jean Servais) commenting, early in Tamango, 1959.
He Ran All The Way (1951) -- (Movie Clip) We Can Dance Here Peg (Shelley Winters) has no idea Nick (John Garfield), has just shot a cop in a robbery, or why he’s brought her all the way home from the pool where they met, but she’s flattered, and so introduces her mother and father (Wallace Ford, Selena Royle), the sportcoat full of cash, in director John Berry’s He Ran All The Way, 1951.
He Ran All The Way (1951) -- (Movie Clip) I Don't Want To Hurt Nobody Peg (Shelley Winters) is now being compassionate after Nick (John Garfield), whom we know is a fugitive who shot a cop, passed out at her apartment from tension, but his problem is revealed as her parents and brother (Wallace Ford, Selena Royle, Bobby Hyatt) return from the movies, in He Ran All The Way, 1951.
He Ran All The Way (1951) -- (Movie Clip) I Got No Luck Today Opening scenes, ne'er-do-well Nick (John Garfield) with mother (Gladys George), then with buddy Al (Norman Lloyd) plotting a job, in soon-to-be-blacklisted director John Berry's He Ran All The Way, 1951.
He Ran All The Way (1951) -- (Movie Clip) Officer Dies Of Wounds Fugitive Nick (John Garfield) has spent the night with the Dobbs family (Shelley Winters and Bobby Hyatt, Selena Royle and Wallace Ford their parents), and has promised to leave that morning, but the morning paper brings a complication, much of the scene in one shot by director John Berry, in He Ran All The Way, 1951.
He Ran All The Way (1951) -- (Movie Clip) But You Do Go For Me? Suggestive and ambivalent scene from director John Berry, where Peg (Shelley Winters), her family held hostage now for days by fugitive Nick (John Garfield), comes home dolled up, maybe truly falling for him, inspiring him to new ideas, in He Ran All The Way, 1951.
He Ran All The Way (1951) -- (Movie Clip) You're Too Tense Fresh off a robbery and shootout, Nick (John Garfield) ducking the cops in a public pool (shot in Long Beach, Ca.) meets Peg (Shelley Winters) in director John Berry's He Ran All The Way, 1951.
