Great Man Votes, The (1939) - Pop's Only Speaking Metagorical Our first scene in the Vance the household, where John Barrymore is “Pop,” , a usually drunk but apparently erudite night watchman in a nameless Prohibition-era city, and Peter Holden and Virginia Weidler are introduced as his precocious children, in The Great Man Votes, 1939, directed by Garson Kanin.

Hoodlum Saint, The (1946) - Baltimore, 1919 Opening in Baltimore, 1919, MGM offers William Powell as reporter-turned-doughboy come home, visiting his old newspaper where there’s no job on offer, meeting his pals and Will Wright as his old editor, in The Hoodlum Saint, 1946, original screenplay by Frank Wead and James Hill.

Crashing Hollywood (1938) - My Husband Is A Criminologist Herman (Paul Guilfoyle) and wife Goldie (Lee Patrick) think they’re hijacking Winston (Lee Tracy) for a suitcase full of bonds on the train, but they find out it was just his inflated sense of the value of his manuscripts, and neighbor Barbara (Joan Woodbury) needn’t have worried, in Crashing Hollywood, 1938.
Crashing Hollywood (1938) - Who's Your Leading Man? Goldie (Lee Patrick), has just picked up Herman (Paul Guilfoyle) from prison, and at the station they meet star Lee Tracy, seeking but not getting insurance for his briefcase, then he meets Barbara (Joan Woodbury), headed for the big time, in RKO’s Crashing Hollywood, 1938.
Wildcat Bus (1940) - Such A Lovely Beginning Ted (Fay Wray), who’s under-cover as a rider with an un-licensed car service that’s trying to put her family bus-line out of business, has discovered that broke ex-playboy Jerry (Charles Lang) is one of their drivers, making trouble then attracting the cops, in the RKO programmer Wildcat Bus, 1940.
Wildcat Bus (1940) - The Magic Wand Has Waved Fay Wray is “Ted,” whose dad (Oscar O’Shea) is grappling with unexplained troubles for their bus line, and after reassuring him, she deals with broke playboy Jerry (Charles Lang) and his ex-chauffeur Donovan (Paul Guilfoyle), looking for work, not realizing she’s the boss, in Wildcat Bus, 1940.

Next Time I Marry (1938) - I'll Set Fire To This Thing! Having locked kooky heiress Nancy (Lucille Ball) in the trailer, so he can be sure to get to Reno first so that he can initiate divorce proceedings, after she paid him to marry her, Tony (James Ellison) stays cool, Garson Kanin directing, in Next Time I Marry, 1938.
