Movie Clip

Green Dolphin Street (1947) - The Tide May Not Wait None of the principals appear here (except Donna Reed and Lana Turner, as the sisters Patourel, in a portrait) but MGM’s intentions are declared, Dame May Whitty oversees the convent on the fictional Channel Island of St. Pierre, a boffo SF/X backdrop and a visit to Gladys Cooper as the mom, in the 1947 disaster melodrama Green Dolphin Street.
Green Dolphin Street (1947) - I Think I'll Be A Smuggler! The dazzling Patourel sisters (Lana Turner as Marianne, Donna Reed as Marguerite), on the fictional Channel Island of St. Pierre in the 1840’s, are observed by Van Heflin (as Timothy Haslam, with Ramsey Ames), then picnic with their handsome unorthodox new neighbor William (Richard Hart), early in MGM’s disaster-melodrama Green Dolphin Street, 1947.
Green Dolphin Street (1947) - I'm Bold And Scheming Introduction of the sisters Patourel, on a fictional Channel Island ca. 1840, Donna Reed as Marguerite with their mom (Gladys Cooper), and Lana Turner as self-assured (and brunette!) Marianne with papa (Edmund Gwenn), noticing the arrival of a hunky new neighbor (Richard Hart), not knowing yet that his father was her mother’s major first love, early in MGM’s Green Dolphin Street, 1947.
Green Dolphin Street (1947) - It Must Be St. Peter Donna Reed as 1840-something Channel Islander Marguerite is distraught over the (Spoiler!) consecutive deaths of her parents, wakened by the waves at the foot of the cliff-side convent, chooses to approach (though it’s not strictly necessary) through the old smuggler’s cave, thus a dramatic sequence for the MGM special effects team, in Green Dolphin Street, 1947.
Green Dolphin Street (1947) - Big Sea A big earthquake from MGM special effects wizards A. Arnold Gillespie and Warren Newcombe has already begun in what by now must be 1850-something New Zealand, Van Heflin is rescuing Lana Turner while Richard Hart, her husband on a nearby riverboat, is slow to recognize what the natives sense, in Green Dolphin Street, 1947.
Red Danube, The (1949) - At The Gondola In Ten MInutes Smooth MGM introduction of flashy supporting players, Melville Cooper, Angela Lansbury and Peter Lawford, as British military staffers in post WWII Rome, opening the big budget political-romance The Red Danube, 1949, starring Janet Leigh, Walter Pidgeon and Ethel Barrymore.
Red Danube, The (1949) - We Have Our Lord Just arrived in Vienna where they’ll be sorting Russian refugees, Brits Nicobar (Walter Pidgeon), McPhinister (Peter Lawford) and Quail (Angela Lansbury) meet their hostess, the Mother Superior (Ethel Barrymore), and top-billed Janet Leigh makes her first appearance, in The Red Danube, 1949.
Why Be Good? (1929) - An Effervescent American Girl From one Manhattan party scene to the next, this time introducing top-billed Colleen Moore as aptly-named flapper Pert, again with emphasis on synchronized music and sound effects, also meeting dandified Jimmy (Louis Natheaux), William A. Seiter directing the slick Why Be Good?, 1929.
Why Be Good? (1929) - Boiler Room In the third consecutive Manhattan party scene opening the picture, this time at a nautically-themed night club where Prohibition is openly flaunted, flapper Pert (Colleen Moore) with hustling Jimmy (Louis Natheaux), spotted by blue-blood Peabody (Neil Hamilton) and pals, in Why Be Good?, 1929.
Postman Always Rings Twice, The (1946) - Get That Blonde Out Of My System The brief entire brilliant performance by Audrey Totter, herself usually the blonde, as Madge (the Anjelica Huston part in the 1982 Jack Nicholson, Jessica Lange and Bob Rafelson remake), just the gal to distract John Garfield (as Frank) from wife Lana Turner (in her landmark performance as waitress, wife and murderous adulteress Cora), who’s left on the train to visit her ailing mother, Hume Cronyn their friendly lawyer, in The Postman Always Rings Twice, 1946.
Arsene Lupin (1932) - Call Me Sir! Barrymore brothers (Lionel as detective "Guechard," John as "Duke Of Chamarace" AND the title character,) playing tricks on each other, early in the MGM hit Arsene Lupin, 1932.
Arsene Lupin (1932) - Even Before Breakfast Now dressed and at the party, Sonia (Karen Morley) is introduced by the Duke (John Barrymore, also the title character) to wealthy and befuddled Gourney-Martin (Tully Marshall), in Arsene Lupin, 1932.
