Movie Clip

Repeat Performance (1947) — (Movie Clip) The Stars Look Down John Ireland’s narration from the novel by William O’Farrell, schticky city-scape yields quickly to Joan Leslie in trouble, then into a becoming mink, and a New Year’s celebration where she meets partying Richard Basehart as William, Virginia Field as Paula, Benay Venuta as Bess, in the long underrated Noir Repeat Performance, 1947.
Repeat Performance (1947) — (Movie Clip) At The City Morgue Baffled because she’s jumped from New Year’s Eve 1946 when she shot and killed her husband, back in time to the previous year, Joan Leslie as actress Sheila is greatly relieved to find him (Louis Hayward in his first scene as playwright Barney) alive, affectionate and sober, in director Alfred Werker’s Noir Repeat Performance, 1947.
Repeat Performance (1947) — (Movie Clip) People Do Live Things Over We have reason to infer that William (Richard Basehart) may be lover as well as friend to actress Sheila (Joan Leslie) to whom she’s just confessed, at a New Year’s party, to killing her husband, prompting them to visit her intrepid producer Friday (Tom Conway) when things get metaphysical, John Ireland narrating, in Repeat Performance, 1947.
Walk East On Beacon (1952) - Perfect Sleeper Agent Reynolds (Karl Weber) brings in the FBI lab guys and higher-up Belden (George Murphy, the future U.S. Senator from California), who offers vigilance and a healthy sense of humor as he takes over in producer Louis de Rochemont's anti-communist tract Walk East On Beacon, 1952.
Walk East On Beacon (1952) - Bells Of Moscow Communist fifth columnist and Boston florist Danzig (Bruno Wick) gets dissed after he introduces married Washingtonian fellow traveler Elaine (Louisa Horton) to Laschenkov (Karel Stepanek), the impatient new man from Moscow, in the FBI-approved espionage drama Walk East On Beacon, 1952.
Walk East On Beacon (1952) - Forces Of Treason The ominous Westbrook Van Voorhis narrates and the credited author of the original work, J. Edgar Hoover, appears briefly, as the indefatigable anti-Hollywood producer Louis de Rochemont launches his anti-communist procedural Walk East On Beacon, 1952, starring George Murphy.
Walk East On Beacon (1952) - We Have Ways Deep-cover Soviet agent "Millie" (Virginia Gilmore) acknowledges visiting Moscow controller Laschenkov (Karel Stepanek), then in a Boston cafe approaches immigrant research mathematician Kafer (Finlay Currie) with a threat, in Louis de Rochemont's anti-communist Walk East On Beacon, 1952.
