Mademoiselle Fifi (1944) - In Occupied France Opening from director Robert Wise and screenwriters Josef Mischel and Peter Ruric, from a Guy de Maupassant story, establishing France during the 1870 Prussian occupation, Charles Waldron a priest, Kurt Kreuger the improbably named title character, in Mademoiselle Fifi, 1944, starring Simone Simon.
Random Harvest (1942) - Down This Shadowed Path Director Mervyn Leroy’s opening, narration by James Hilton, author of the novel, we meet psychiatrist Dr. Benet (Philip Dorn), Arthur Space as patient Trempitt, and Ronald Colman as Smith, surely the handsomest amnesiac on the ward, in MGM’s Random Harvest, 1942, also starring Greer Garson.
Big Sleep, The (1946) - Doghouse Reilly Humphrey Bogart enters as Philip Marlowe, in the William Faulkner and Leigh Brackett screen treatment of Raymonnd Chandler's novel, meeting Carmen Sternwood (Martha Vickers) and the general (Charles Waldron), opening Howard Hawks' The Big Sleep, 1946, co-starring Lauren Bacall.
On Borrowed Time (1939) - We're Not Going Far An efficient MGM opening, after a prologue linking the story to Chaucer, we infer that the hitchhiker (Sir Cedric Hardwicke) is not mortal, whereupon we meet Demetria (Eily Malyon) the reverend and Charlie (Charles Waldron, Ian Wolfe), then the stars Grandpa Julian (Lionel Barrymore) and Pub (Bobs Watson), in On Borrowed Time, 1939.
Garden Of Allah, The (1936) - Undoubtedly English From the monastery which Brother Antoine (Charles Boyer, introduced here) has inexplicably fled, joining Domini (Marlene Dietrich), a soul-seeking French tourist, attended by hustling Batouch (Joseph Schildkraut), crossing North Africa, in Richard Boleslawski's The Garden Of Allah, 1936.
