Arsene Lupin Returns (1938) - I'm Out Of Circulation Joining Melvyn Douglas, as gentleman farmer Farrand in France, though we suspect he’s the jewel-thief title character, visited by pals (Nat Pendleton as Joe, E.E. Clive as Alf) about a New York heist, then by the almost-victim, his neighbor-girlfriend Lorraine (Virginia Bruce) and her private sleuth pal Steve (Warren William), in MGM’s Arsene Lupin Returns, 1938.
Arsene Lupin Returns (1938) - The Gentleman With The Gun Hot-shot New York federal lawman Steve Emerson (Warren William), who just quit because he was getting too much publicity, attends to his first private client, Jack Norton the hotel manager, Virginia Bruce, Monty Woolley and John Halliday the bound crime victims, in Arsene Lupin Returns, 1938, starring Melvyn Douglas in the title role.
Blackmail (1939) - White Or Whole Wheat? Oklahoma oil-rig fire fighter (Edward G. Robinson as John Ingram) returns home with his wife and son (Ruth Hussey, Bobs Watson) celebrating the opening of his own first well when he’s confronted by a drifter (Gene Lockhart as Ramey), who makes clear why he’s been sensitive about his past, in MGM’s Blackmail, 1939.
Blackmail (1939) - Don't Use A Nasty Word Like That Oklahoma oil-rig fire fighter (Edward G. Robinson as John Ingram) returns home with his wife and son (Ruth Hussey, Bobs Watson) celebrating the opening of his own first well when he’s confronted by a drifter (Gene Lockhart as Ramey), who makes clear why he’s been sensitive about his past, in MGM’s Blackmail, 1939.
Johnny Eager (1942) - High And Handsome Opening scene, Robert Taylor (title character), evidently a cabbie, drops in on his parole officer Verne (Henry O'Neill), his aide Miss Mines (Leona Maricle) not interested, but visiting students (Diana Lewis, Lana Turner) are, in Mervyn LeRoy's Johny Eager, 1943.
Johnny Eager (1942) - Things Like Crime Racketeer Robert Taylor (title character) with second-cousins Matilda (Robin Raymond) and Peg (Connie Gilchrist), who are alibis for his parole officer Verne (Henry O'Neill), who drops in unannounced with students Judy (Diana Lewis) and Lisbeth (Lana Turner), early in Johnny Eager, 1943.
Johnny Eager (1942) - A Modern Boswell Paroled Robert Taylor (title character), still in the rackets but posing as a cabbie, walks in on girlfriend Garnet (Patricia Dane) and dipsomaniac sidekick Jeff (Van Heflin, his first scene) in Mervyn LeRoy's Johnny Eager, 1942.
Broadway Melody Of 1936 (1935) - Sing Before Breakfast The second piece of maybe the best bit in the movie, hoofers and new neighbors Ted and Sally (Buddy and sister Vilma Ebsen) with Broadway hopeful Irene (Eleanor Powell), reprising the song by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed, in MGM's Broadway Melody Of 1936, 1935.
Boys Town (1938) - Eternity Begins In 45 Minutes One of the finest scenes for the overlooked Liverpool-born actor-turned-director Leslie Fenton as convict Dan, with the warden (John Hamilton), then Academy Award-winning star Spencer Tracy as Father Flanagan, Roger Converse and Walter Young in support, opening the MGM hit Boys Town, 1938.
Mad Love (1935) - She's Only Wax Opening in which we meet Frances Drake as Mme. Yvonne Orlac, before her last performance at a Paris horror theater, and Peter Lorre as Dr. Gogol, a big fan, visiting her wax likeness at the museum next door, in MGM’s version of Maurice Renard’s Hands Of Orlac, Mad Love, 1935.
Emperor's Candlesticks, The - Letter To The Czar From the scene introducing William Powell as Polish "Baron Wolensky," with servant Albert (Barnett Parker) and an unexpected visit from Polish nationalist leader Korum (Douglas Dumbrille), in MGM's The Emperor's Candlesticks, 1937.
Voice Of Bugle Ann, The - She's A Mouse Runt Spring (Lionel Barrymore) and Ma (Spring Byington) Davis bring home the litter and lose the mother Molly, in an early scene from MGM's The Voice Of Bugle Ann, 1936, from the novel by MacKinlay Kantor.
