Movie Clip

Satan Met A Lady (1936) - You're In The Bag Run out of town by police brass in some city, slick private eye Warren William (going by the name Nash, in this instance) immediately ingratiates himself with well-heeled Mrs. Arden (Alison Skipworth) on the train, co-top billed Bette Davis, smartly outfitted by Orry-Kelly, eavesdropping, early in Warner Bros.’ second, and loosest adaptation of Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon, Satan Met A Lady, 1936.
Captain Hates The Sea, The (1934) - Could I Slit Your Throat And Love It? We discover here that Fred Keating (as thief Danny) is actually in league with Helen Vinson (posing as Janet, a librarian) over the stolen bonds, Victor McLaglen the friendly private eye Schulte, Alison Skipworth as Mrs Magruder, buying drinks for Wynne Gibson as reformed party girl “Goldie,” John Wray her indignant husband, John Gilbert her ex-pal Steve, Walter Catlett the barkeep Joe, in The Captain Hates The Sea, 1934.
Song Of Songs, The (1933) - You'll Bear Watching After opening with the death of her father in the countryside, innocent Lily (Marlene Dietrich) arrives in Berlin to live with her cynical aunt (Alison Skipworth), who runs a bookstore, early in Rouben Mamoulian’s The Song Of Songs, 1933, co-starring Brian Aherne and Lionel Atwill.
Dangerous (1935) - I'm Too Tired To Be Hysterical Returned to his country place, where he parked down-and-out actress Joyce (Bette Davis), of whom he is a great admirer, after her bender, engaged architect Don (Franchot Tone) finds her in the barn, later meeting his skeptical housekeeper (Alison Skipworth), in Dangerous, 1935.
Princess Comes Across, The - My Powder Poof At the ship's restaurant, concertina player King (Fred MacMurray) returns a purse, stolen by his scheming assistant, to Swedish princess Olga (Carole Lombard), who again slips out of character as her companion Lady Gertrude (Alison Skipworth) returns, in The Princess Comes Across, 1936.
Princess Comes Across, The - She Done Him Plenty Swedish princess Olga (Carole Lombard) arrives at Le Havre for the trip to New York, Lady Gertrude (Alison Skipworth) clearing the way, Captain Nicholls (George Barbier) paying respects, opening The Princess Comes Across, 1936, also starring Fred MacMurray.
Princess Comes Across, The - Symbol Of The Lower Classes American accordion star King (Fred MacMurray) swipes credit for flowers delivered to the cabin of Swedish princess Olga (Carole Lombard) who, with sidekick Gertrude (Alison Skipworth) has, without explanation, dropped her accent, early in The Princess Comes Across, 1936.
