Hi, Nellie! (1934) - They've Found Bigger Hearts In Fleas! Delineating relations between reluctant “lonely hearts” columnist Gerry (Glenda Farrell), billed as “Nellie,” and editor “Brad” Bradshaw (Paul Muni), Mervyn LeRoy directing in extra punchy Warner Bros. style, from an original script by Abem Finkel, Sidney Sutherland and Roy Chanslor, early in Hi, Nellie!, 1934.
Hi, Nellie! (1934) - Polish Children's Picnic Yarn First scene for Paul Muni in his first comedy, as big city news editor “Brad” Bradshaw, directed by Mervyn LeRoy, with George Chandler, Donald Meek, Douglas Dumbrille (as “Dawes”), and Paul Kaye in support, the picnic story having nothing to do with the Bob Dylan song, written about a similar (but not fictional) event almost 30-years later, in Hi, Nellie!, 1934.
Hi, Nellie! (1934) - I Wanted A Story With Teeth Editor “Brad” (Paul Muni) called before his annoyed but befuddled publisher (Berton Churchill) who thinks he blew a big city corruption story, pointing out he can’t be fired, but nonetheless sharing the news with disgruntled advice columnist Gerry (Glenda Farrell, pen name “Nellie”), knowing she’ll be thrilled Hi, Nellie!, 1934.
Front Page Woman (1935) - Time For The Slow Music Early scenes established the upcoming execution of a society diva murderess, and George Brent as top reporter Devlin, at the prison we meet the press corps and Bette Davis, as junior journo Ellen Garfield, scheduled to witness the event, Michael Curtiz directing, in Front Page Woman, 1935.
Front Page Woman (1935) - She Makes Me Feel Effeminate After getting them both in trouble for filing the same story for both of their newspapers when she passed out at an execution, Devlin (George Brent) and sidekick Toots (Roscoe Karns) join discouraged Ellen (Bette Davis), commenting on Nell (Grace Hayle) before events overtake, in Front Page Woman, 1935.
Tarzan Triumphs (1943) - Making Slaves Tarzan (Johnny Weissmuller) and Boy (Johnny Sheffield) are chatting with German Schmidt (Rex Williams), whom they've rescued, when they discover neighboring native princess Zandra (Frances Gifford) in trouble, pursued by pith-helmeted Nazis led by Sig Ruman, in Tarzan Triumphs, 1943.
Navy Comes Through, The - Admiral Babe Youthful "Babe" (Jackie Cooper) with parents (Mary Young, Joe Cunningham) reports to Mallory (Pat O'Brien) who also receives Dutch (Carl Esmond) and Sampler (Frank Jenks) in The Navy Comes Through, 1942.
Navy Comes Through, The - State Of War Apropos of little, a montage featuring the president signals the start of the war, whereupon Mallory (Pat O'Brien) discovers Sanders (George Murphy) in his new gunnery squad in The Navy Comes Through, 1942.
