Movie Clip

Pin Up Girl (1944) - I Don't Tell Fibs! At this point we’ve no idea that Lorry (Betty Grable), most popular gal at the Missoula, Mo. USO, is given to fibbing, but we learn more when she catches the train with girlfriend Kaye (Dorothea Kent), early in the Twentieth Century-Fox musical Pin Up Girl, 1944.
Pin Up Girl (1944) - Don't Carry Tales Out Of School Miffed New York night club star Molly (Martha Raye) calls Lorry (Betty Grable, with pal Dorothea Kent, from Missouri) on her claim she starred in a just-closed Broadway show, so owner Joe E. Brown introduces her for a number by James V. Monaco and Mack Gordon, in Pin Up Girl, 1944.
Susannah Of The Mounties (1939) - I Want You To Meet My Daughter Randolph Scott as officer Monty, having rescued the star (Shirley Temple) following an Indian massacre, is eager to report to his C-O (Moroni Olsen), not realizing he'd meet knockout Margaret Lockwood, then berating his orderly Mac (J. Farrell MacDonald), early in Susannah Of The Mounties, 1939.
Susannah Of The Mounties (1939) - Is That Your Pony? Cordial when you consider that, broadly speaking, his tribe probably just slaughtered her family and wagon train, survivor Shirley Temple (title character) and Canadian Blackfeet “Little Chief,” who’s been left with the white men as a de facto hostage during peace talks, have a normal juvenile spat, Randolph Scott intervening, in Susannah Of The Mounties, 1939.
Susannah Of The Mounties (1939) - One Little Word Pretty horrifying opening, at least in the Shirley Temple canon, as she’s found by Northwest Mounted Police officer “Monty” (Randolph Scott), the sole survivor of an outright massacre by Blackfeet Indians in Canada, in 20th Century Fox’s Susannah Of The Mounties, 1939, also starring Margaret Lockwood.
Susannah Of The Mounties (1939) - I'll Teach You To Waltz Shirley Temple (title character, survivor of a wagon-train massacre) helps Monty (Randolph Scott), her rescuer and Northwest Mounted Police officer, with dance technique, J. Farrell MacDonald accompanying, and Margaret Lockwood, the commander’s daughter, his object, in Susannah Of The Mounties, 1939.
April Showers (1948) - Have A Cigar! Vaudeville stars since their son Buster (Robert Ellis) joined their act, the Tymes (Jack Carson, Ann Sothern) arrive for their big gig in New York and find out from Barnes (Joseph Crehan) that they’re not legal, Billy Curtis walking in with the solution, and Mel Blanc providing the nutty dubbed voice, in Warner Bros.’ April Showers, 1948.
Four Jills In A Jeep (1943) - You Look Like Somebody I've Seen Just arrived on a base in England, in a story supposedly based on their own real experience on USO tours, Kay Francis, sparky Martha Raye, blonde Carole Landis and Mitzi Mayfair get collected by their minder Eddie (Phil Silvers), and meet handsome flier Ted (John Harvey), early in Four Jills In A Jeep, 1943.
Sun Valley Serenade (1941) - It Happened In Sun Valley Promo here for the Idaho resort, Glenn Miller's band with an original by Harry Warren and Mack Gordon, Milton Berle and Joan Davis schtick and Sonja Henie, in her first skating scene, tries to impress pianist Ted (John Payne), who is her legal adoptive guardian, in Sun Valley Serenade, 1941.
Pin Up Girl (1944) - We're In Musical Comedy Navy hero Tommy (John Harvey) and pal Dud (Dave Willock) are the toast of New York, greeted by Eddie (Joe E. Brown) at his night club, not knowing Lorry and Kay (Betty Grable, Dorothea Kent) have fibbed to get his table, Martha Raye with an original song by James V. Monaco and Mack Gordon, in Pin Up Girl, 1944.
Green Promise, The (1949) - Purebred Angus Scurrying home from school, Susan (Natalie Wood) meets a cow and her new neighbors Buzz (Robert Ellis) and Jessie (Jeanne La Duke) in the 4-H family drama The Green Promise, 1949.
