Movie Clip

High, Wide And Handsome (1937) - The Things I Want Our first look at Dorothy Lamour as singer Molly (working at her Paramount home, age 22, months before her star-making performance in the Samuel Goldwyn/John Ford spectacle The Hurricane), with a song written for the picture by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II, in 1859 Pennsylvania, with Alan Hale as evil interloping railroad baron Brennan, confronted by our hero, local oil driller Peter (Randolph Scott), High, Wide And Handsome, 1937.
High, Wide And Handsome (1937) - You Think It's Daffy? Hunky Pennsylvania farmer and aspiring “rock oil” driller Peter (Randolph Scott) and crew (Ben Blue, Stanley Andrews, with Charles Bickford and Billy Bletcher the dimwit neighbors), can’t help noticing Sally (Irene Dunne), a guest with her father after their medicine show wagon burned, is kind of a babe, in Paramount’s High, Wide And Handsome, 1937.
High, Wide And Handsome (1937) - She's Been Kissed Before At the town dance in Titusville, PA, 1859, infatuated Peter (Randolph Scott) with visiting medicine-show performer Sally (Irene Dunne) as his Grandma (Elizabeth Patterson) jousts with stuffy Stark (Irving Pichel) and a scuff-up with Scanlon (Charles Bickford) ensues, in High, Wide And Handsome, 1937.
High, Wide And Handsome (1937) - The Morning's Half Over Arising on the Titusville, PA farm where she and her father (Raymond Walburn, with sidekick William Frawley) have been received as guests the day after their medicine-show wagon burned, Irene Dunne as Sally has a mixed exchange with hostess Grandma (Elizabeth Patterson), in Paramount’s High, Wide And Handsome, 1937, also starring Randolph Scott.
Wildcat, The (1921) - Not Far From Piffkaneiro Something like the fantastical opening imagined by Ernst Lubitsch (the original inter-titles are lost), with the fictional location and the immediate broad spoof of the popular matte-iris technique, Viktor Janson introduced as commander of a plenty-absurd looking fortress, from The Wildcat, or Die Bergkatze, 1921, starring Pola Negri.
Wildcat, The (1921) - I Did What I Could Introduction of the heartthrob officer Alexis (Paul Heidemann) being banished to a remote frontier outpost in Ernst Lubitsch’s fantasy winterland, loaded with more matte technique and design gags, still before the introduction of Pola Negri, the title character, in the outlandish German silent comedy The Wildcat, 1921.
Wildcat, The (1921) - She Beat Me! Just introduced as the leader of an outlaw band on some fictional Alpine frontier, Wilhelm Diegelmann is being set upon by his own charges so he summons his daughter Rischka (Pola Negri, the title character, her first scene) who cracks heads as needed then notices Paul Heidemann as Alexis, the just-transferred army Lothario, on the move, in Ernst Lubitsch’s The Wildcat, 1921.
Wildcat, The (1921) - You Would Have Split Them Thinking she’s made a killing by robbing a dandified military officer of his clothes, Rischka (Pola Negri), daughter of the Alpine bandit chieftan, is baffled by seeing her first photograph, then smitten, then berated by her dad (Wilhelm Diegelmann) for not taking his underwear as well, in Ernst Lubitsch’s absurd comedy The Wildcat, 1921.
Big Broadcast Of 1937, The (1936) - A Trifle Ambiguous Radio director Carson (Jack Benny) hasn’t satisfied his golf-ball dynasty sponsors the Platts (George Burns and daffy Gracie Allen), so agent Bob (Ray Milland) suggests they sample singer Frank Rossman (Frank Forest), with a Robin and Rainger tune, in Paramount’s The Big Broadcast Of 1937, 1936.
Big Broadcast Of 1937, The (1936) - Here's Love In Your Eye Agent Bob (Ray Milland) escorts promising suburban singer Gwen (Shirley Ross) to a club where they catch an abbreviated Benny Goodman number, then Benny Fields with another Leo Robin/Ralph Rainger original, in Paramount’s radio-variety feature The Big Broadcast Of 1937, 1936.
Big Broadcast Of 1937, The (1936) - Heigh Ho The Radio! An un-credited act opening with a song by credited composers Leo Robin and Ralph Rainger, for a feature with many big radio stars, first George Burns and Gracie Allen, with Martha Raye, then Jack Benny as the big shot, in Paramount's The Big Broadcast Of 1937, 1936.
College Holiday (1936) - Love In Bloom The ever-game Marsha Hunt has just the guile to carry this off, beating out creditors looking for Jack Benny, the madcap promoter who has almost bankrupted her father's hotel, the two then suddenly in league for a rescue, early in Paramount's College Holiday, 1936.
