Trader Horn (1931) - You Made Her No Promise Horn (Harry Carey) and sidekick Peru (Duncan Renaldo) find the remains of missionary Edith (Olive Golden, Carey's wife) but resolve to carry on, on location at noisy Murchison Falls on the Nile in modern-day Uganda, in MGM's Trader Horn, 1931.
Trader Horn (1931) - We're White, Like Herself! Now captives of an especially hungry East African tribe, Horn (Harry Carey) and Peru (Duncan Renaldo) meet Nina (Edwina Booth), the captive they planned to rescue, who has become the chief, in MGM's Trader Horn, 1931.
Hallelujah! (1929) - Ain't No Nothin' To Buy Director King Vidor's on-location opening, introducing the Johnsons including Zekiel (Daniel L. Haynes) and Mammy (Fanny Belle DeKnight), dialogue likely by Ransom Rideout, the African-American playwright Vidor hired, in the MGM "all-colored" musical Hallelujah!, 1929.
Hallelujah! (1929) - And Zekiel Became A Preacher Zekiel (Daniel L. Haynes) in a wrathful public mourning, over the death of his brother brought about by his own sinful behavior, Harry Gray as Pappy the preacher, ending with the spiritual by Henry Thacker Burleigh, from King Vidor's Hallelujah, 1929.
Hallelujah! (1929) - Waiting At The End Of The Road Leading man Daniel L. Haynes (as "Zekiel") with the younger brother he calls "Spunk" (Everett McGarrity), in another of director King Vidor's impressive location shots, with another Irving Berlin original, the Dixie Jubilee Singers also credited, early in MGM's Hallelujah!, 1929.
Black Magic (1949) - His Cunning Gypsy Mind We know from narration (by Berry Kroeger as Alexandre Dumas) that gypsy Balsamo (Orson Welles) is a prodigiously gifted hypnotist, seen here just after he’s been discovered and bailed out of a Vienna jail by the professionally interested Dr. Mesmer (Charles Goldner), in Black Magic, 1949.
Mummy, The (1932) - What Fools We Look Eleven years following the hairy prologue, bothered Englishmen Whemple (David Manners) and Professor Pearson (Leonard Mudie) are lamenting their lousy dig when an un-credentialed Egyptian who calls himself Ardeth Bey (Boris Karloff) drops by, in Universal's original The Mummy, 1932.
Mummy, The (1932) - Closed For The Night Mysterious Egyptian "Ardeth Bay" (Boris Karloff) has his hands now on his prized scroll, incanting over it the name of the long dead princess of the character he's pretending not to be, somehow reaching Anglo-Egyptian Helen (Zita Johann) at the museum party, in Universal's The Mummy, 1932.
Black Magic (1949) - He Hypnotized Half The World! Producer Edward Small wringing every drop of historical gravitas from his even-then out-of-copyright literary source, Gregory Ratoff directing Berry Kroeger and Raymond Burr as Dumas père and fils, opening Black Magic, 1949, starring Orson Welles.
Black Magic (1949) - The Words Within Your Own Soul Now renowned throughout Europe, hypnotist “Cagliostro” (Orson Welles) has just recognized his parents’ murderer (Stephen Bekassy), who needs him to revive catatonic Lorenza (Nancy Guild), in whose flashback we meet handsome Gilbert (Frank Latimore), Gregory Ratoff directing, in Black Magic, 1949.
Black Magic (1949) - Long Live Cagliostro! Gifted gypsy Balsamo (Orson Welles) has just learned that his powers of hypnotism will have great currency in European society, his crew (Akim Tamiroff, Valentina Cortese) enthralled as Berry Kroeger in the voice of Alexandre Dumas narrates his ascendance, in Black Magic, 1949.
Black Magic (1949) - An Insolent, Devil May Care Vagabond Berry Kroeger narrates as Alexandre Dumas père, introducing Orson Welles as the adult gypsy Balsamo, his mystical powers established in prologue, Akim Tamiroff his sidekick in a Vienna medicine show, the actor-turned-director Gregory Ratoff in charge, in producer Edward Small’s Black Magic, 1949.
