Uncertain Glory (1944) - The Barber Will Shave Your Neck After an opening establishing visibly atmospheric Nazi-occupied Paris, 1943, we meet Errol Flynn as inmate Jean Picard, not apparently political, rousted by the warden (Art Smith) who is congratulated by the commissioner (Douglas Dumbrille) and questioned one last time by policeman Bonet (Paul Lukas), in Raoul Walsh and Warner Bros.’ Uncertain Glory, 1944.
Uncertain Glory (1944) - Two Great Weaknesses Smitten Louise (Faye Emerson) has followed criminal Picard (Errol Flynn), who escaped execution due to an air raid in Paris, to Bordeaux, only to be intercepted by policeman Picard (Paul Lukas), who was tipped off by her jealous boyfriend, early in Uncertain Glory, 1944.
Nobody Lives Forever (1946) - Mountains Of The Moon We've just left John Garfield as WWII vet and accomplished con artist Nick on a train, having reclaimed his nest-egg in New York, headed west to see what his old mentor Pop (Walter Brennan) is up to, which is more of a street hustle, Wallace Scott his mark, Jean Negulesco directing, from a W.R. Burnett novel, in Nobody Lives Forever, 1946.
Virginia City (1940) - In This Fever Hole Commander Irby (Randolph Scott) of the notorious Libby Confederate prison catches previously introduced tunneling Union prisoners Kerry (Errol Flynn) and pals (Guinn Williams, Alan Hale), the Civil War framing for the Warner Bros. Western, Virginia City, 1940, directed by Michael Curtiz.
Desert Song, The (1944) - Step Out Of The Sun Joining the uncommonly complex early exposition, we’ve barely met Dennis Morgan, a guy who shares bathing facilities in Morocco with a reporter (Lynne Overman), then the new singer in town (Irene Manning) converses with her boss (Nestor Paiva) and a French colonel (Bruce Cabot), in Warner Bros.’ The Desert Song, 1944.
Desert Song, The (1944) - El Khobar! Big action perhaps refers to the title, as a guy in a red mask, apparently the rebel leader in Morocco (could he be top-billed Dennis Morgan, an itinerant piano player?) leads a raid on a French forced-labor camp Gerald Mohr his aide, as Tarbouch (Marcel Dalio) is captured, in Warner Bros.’ The Desert Song, 1944.
Desert Song, The (1944) - One Alone Working in the song from the 1926 Sig Romberg operetta (lyrics credited to Otto Harbach, Oscar Hammerstein II and Frank Mandel), American Paul (Dennis Morgan) entertains the French commander (Bruce Cabot), joined by singer Margot (Irene Manning), but really alerting the local Moroccan rebels, Gene Lockhart the club owner, in The Desert Song, 1944.
Desert Song, The (1944) - You Talk Like An American In a still nameless Moroccan city, piano player Paul (Dennis Morgan), whom we suspect might support the local rebels, has a friendly joust with Margot (Irene Manning), the new singer from France, who is friendly but seems to still prefer the French officer Fontaine (Bruce Cabot), in The Desert Song, 1944.
Oklahoma Kid, The (1939) - Brand New Money Later on the evening before the 1893 Oklahoma land rush, James Cagney (title character) enters the saloon throwing around money he stole from McCord (Humphrey Bogart), who stole it himself, and who sends his goons (Edward Pawley, and Ward Bond as “Handley”) to inquire, in Warner Bros.’ The Oklahoma Kid , 1939.
Oklahoma Kid, The (1939) - Feel The Air? In Oklahoma, 1893, eve of the Cherokee Strip Land Run, James Cagney appears, an as-yet un-named and unaffiliated cowboy, introducing himself to Rosemary Lane, daughter of the judge (Donald Crisp), annoying Ned (Harvey Stephens) then tangling with the innkeeper (Irving Bacon), early in the Warner Bros. Western The Oklahoma Kid, 1939.
To Paris With Love (1955) - The Real Poetry Of Paris Opening on location, Les Champs Elysees and environs, Robert Hamer directing, Alec Guinness as Scottish Sir Edgar, Vernon Gray his son Jon on his first trip to the city, both taking an interest in motorcycle passenger Odile Versois, in To Paris With Love, 1955.
To Paris With Love (1955) - All I Have Is Youth Scot Sir Edgar (Alec Guinness) and son Jon (Vernon Gray) out in Paris, the elder more interested in shopgirl Lizette (Odile Versois) and the younger in her employer Mme. Sylvia (Elina Labourdette), the cabbie seen later (Jacques Brunius) the watchful father, in To Paris With Love, 1955.
