Movie Clip

Maisie (1939) - The Chiffon Girl The first scene in the first picture in the series of ten from MGM, Ann Sothern is the title character, getting bad news (from Frank Darien as Pops) about her showbiz gig in Big Horn, Wyoming, from a script first written for Jean Harlow, opening Maisie, 1939, co-starring Robert Young.
Eskimo (1933) - Walrus Hunt Little adherence to the story, plus cruel slaughter, but some of the best, legitimate Northern Alaska on-location shooting, directed by W.S. Van Dyke and photographed by Clyde De Vinna, George Gordon Nogle, Leonard Smith and Josiah Roberts for MGM, plus some odd process shots, in the first picture ever to win a Best Film Editing Academy Award, Eskimo, 1933.
Ship Ahoy (1942) - I'll Take Tallulah Like many Eleanor Powell numbers, another suggesting she was the best dancer of her generation, devised by Billy Connolly, Bert Lahr and Red Skelton warbling, Tommy Dorsey's band, song by Burton Lane and Yip Harburg, clever bit for drummer Buddy Rich, in Ship Ahoy, 1942.
Ship Ahoy (1942) - Hawaiian War Chant Opening, pretty much everybody showing off, the tune a Hawaiian pop standard, first Tommy Dorsey and the band, then drummer Buddy Rich and trumpeter Ziggy Elman, then Eleanor Powell as the fictional "Tallulah Winters," in Ship Ahoy, from producer Jack Cummings at MGM, co-starring Red Skelton.
Marie Antoinette (1938) - I Shall Be Queen By a mile the largest thing W.S. ("One-Take Woody) Van Dyke II ever directed, Norma Shearer in the title role nothing but charming, Cecil Cunningham her aide "Feldy," Alma Kruger her mother the Austrian empress, ambassador Henry Stephenson making a bow, opening MGM's lavish Marie Antoinette, 1938, co-starring Tyrone Power.
Lassie Come Home (1943) - Apply Yourself Prologue about the author, introduction of the famous collie and his young master Joe (Roddy McDowall), distracted in school, from MGM's hit Lassie Come Home, 1943, featuring Elizabeth Taylor.
Lassie Come Home (1943) - I Only Want Lassie Young Yorkshireman Joe (Roddy McDowall) had no warning whatever that his cash-strapped parents (Donald Crisp, Elsa Lanchester) had plans to sell the collie, rushing home after school for a difficult explanation, early in the MGM hit that launched the popular series, Lassie Come Home, 1943.
Lassie Come Home (1943) - Bid Her Stay Father and Joe (Donald Crisp, Roddy McDowall) return the star to the duke (Nigel Bruce) after a second escape, the trainer (J. Patrick O’Malley) scolded before Priscilla (Elizabeth Taylor) offers reassurance, in her first on-screen meeting with her lifelong friend (McDowall), in Lassie Come Home, 1943.
Doughboys (1930) - I Want My Mama A rare vocal by Buster Keaton, with “Ukelele Ike” Cliff Edwards, who became a lifelong pal after this picture, reeling off an un-credited vaudeville tune, which they often did between takes, chilling in the barracks, in Keaton’s second MGM talkie, Doughboys, 1930.
Doughboys (1930) - You Rolls Royces Once you adjust to Buster Keaton speaking, this is his second of two attempts, as blue-blood "Elmer Stuyvesant," to woo shopgirl Mary (Sally Eilers), his servant Gustave (Arnold Korff) standing by as the chauffeur enlists for the war, in Keaton's second talkie for MGM, Doughboys, 1930.
Mortal Storm, The (1940) - Within Man Himself Following the credits as if the metaphor were difficult, narration over weather and scenes introducing kindly German professor Roth (Frank Morgan), from Frank Borzage's The Mortal Storm, 1940.
Mortal Storm, The (1940) - The Pacifist Vermin Only Martin (James Stewart), Freya (Margaret Sullavan) and teacher Werner (Thomas Ross) are not singing with Hitler youth leader Hall (Dan Dailey), irritating Fritz (Robert Young), in The Mortal Storm, 1940.
