Movie Clip

City That Never Sleeps (1953) - Take The Service Elevator Continuing the omniscient narration, by the “voice of the city,” (Chicago), we meet William Talman as thief Stewart, Ron Hagerthy his sidekick, Edward Arnold as lawyer Biddell, Marie Windsor his wife, Gig Young again as Johnny, whom we didn’t know was a cop, and Paula Raymond as the wife we know he’s thinking of leaving, early in City That Never Sleeps, 1953.
City That Never Sleeps (1953) - I Am The City Opening projecting the extraordinary tone which will permeate the piece, narration by Chill Wills who will appear as a character, introducing the automated Wally Cassell, cynical and bitter Gig Young and Mala Powers, and sparky Bunny Kacher as Agnes, John H. Auer directing from Steve Fisher’s original screenplay, in City That Never Sleeps, 1953.
Quiet Man, The (1952) - Begin At The Beginning John Ford’s Academy Award-winning direction opens with John Wayne arriving in an imaginary Irish town, Ward Bond narrating, Paddy O’Donnell, Web Overlander and Eric Gorman with greetings until Barry FitzGerald intervenes, in The Quiet Man, 1952, co-starring Maureen O’Hara.
Quiet Man, The (1952) - A Bold One You Are! Winton Hoch’s photography supports director John Ford’s expression of operatic passions in pastoral Ireland, as American Thornton (John Wayne, title character), enters the old family home he’s just bought, finding fiery Mary Kate (Maureen O’Hara) engaged, in The Quiet Man, 1952.
Quiet Man, The (1952) - See Here Little Man! Dannaher (Victor McLaglen) throws a tantrum, interrupting Michaeleen (Barry FitzGerald) and Thornton (John Wayne), who’s about to buy his old family home from widow Tillane (Mildred Natwick), though his sister Mary Kate (Maureen O’Hara) doesn’t object, in John Ford’s The Quiet Man, 1952.
Quiet Man, The (1952) - It's Only A Mirage Michaeleen (Barry FitzGerald) conveys Thornton (John Wayne) to Innisfree, explaining to narrating Fr. Lonergan (Ward Bond) that the big American from Pittsburgh was born there, when Mary Kate (Maureen O’Hara) first appears, early in John Ford’s The Quiet Man, 1952.
Quiet Man, The (1952) - This Wild Colonial Boy John Ford directs a vignette in the rural Irish pub, Ken Curtis leading the song, Ford’s brother Francis greeting John Wayne as the American Thornton who’s bought his boyhood home, but local land-owner Dannaher (Victor McLaglen) isn’t having any, Ward Bond the priest, in The Quiet Man, 1952.
Trent's Last Case - Never Cultivate A Luxury An hour into the film, in a flashback, the first appearance of Orson Welles as the deceased Sigsbee Manderson, questioning his secretary Marlowe (John McCallum) and wife (Margaret Lockwood), in Trent's Last Case, 1953, from the E.C. Bentley novel.
Trent's Last Case - Did He Appear Normal? First appearance for the widow (Margaret Lockwood) of the suicide-or-murder victim, escorted by Marlowe (John McCallum), questioned by coroner (Henry Edwards), observed by reporter and sleuth Trent (Michael Wilding), in Trent's Last Case, 1953.
Trent's Last Case - Unfit To Live Reporter and amateur sleuth Trent (Michael Wilding) tracks down old friend Cupples (Miles Malleson), also the uncle of the widow of the deceased, on the golf course, in Trent's Last Case, 1953, from the E.C. Bentley novel.
Sands Of Iwo Jima - Thanks Marine! Actual and staged combat as the squad hits the famous shores, with incidents including the usually reserved Conway (John Agar) wailing on an enemy soldier, saving Stryker (John Wayne) in Sands Of Iwo Jima, 1949.
Sands Of Iwo Jima - Open, Prologue For the Marine Hymn and the emphatic decication, it's worth seeing the opening credits from director Allan Dwan's Sands Of Iwo Jima, starring John Wayne and John Agar, narration by Arthur Franz.
