What Every Woman Knows (1934) - I'm An Individual Collectivist! First scene for Helen Hayes, as chronically un-married Maggie, returning to her Scottish home town with brother David (Donald Crisp), met by other brother James (Dudley Digges) with news of another failed romance, all meeting young porter Shand (Brian Aherne), in What Every Woman Knows, 1934, from a J.M. Barrie play.
Hatchet Man, The (1932) - Find Someone Else! To his everlasting credit, Edward G. Robinson (as "Wong") does not attempt an accent, when confronted in his first scene with an awful order from his Tong boss (Dudley Digges) in William A. Wellman's The Hatchet Man, 1932.
What Every Woman Knows (1934) - I Never Laughed In Me Life! The Scottish Wylies (Helen Hayes as notably un-married Maggie, Donald Crisp and Dudley Digges her brothers, David Torrence her father) discover that the person sneaking into their library has been local train porter Shand (Brian Aherne), who acquits himself ably, early in MGM’s What Every Woman Knows, 1934.
Maltese Falcon, The (1931) - A Guy Named Thursby Still on the evening of the murder of his partner Archer, Sam Spade (Ricardo Cortez) receives two San Francisco cops he clearly knows well (J. Farrell MacDonald and Robert Elliot as Polhaus and Dundy), and learns that their client was also killed, but sharing little, in the 1931 version of The Maltese Falcon.
Mayor Of Hell, The (1933) - You're In Reform School Now We’ve followed Frankie Darro (as Jimmy) and company through committing crimes and being convicted, and now they meet Dudley Digges as the reform school warden, and Madge Evans as Dorothy, the relatively kind nurse, in Warner Bros.’ The Mayor Of Hell,1933, starring James Cagney.
Mayor Of Hell, The (1933) - You'd Better Take A Vacation Cruel reform school chief Thompson (Dudley Digges) doesn’t yet know that Patsy (James Cagney), the gangster who got a plum job as a do-nothing commissioner, has gotten himself put in charge, out of concern for kids like Jimmy (Frankie Darro), in Warner Bros.’ The Mayor Of Hell, 1933.
Mayor Of Hell, The (1933) - I Think He Can Take You 24 minutes in, first appearance of top-billed James Cagney as Patsy, previously not mentioned, accompanied by sidekick Allen Jenkins and squeeze Sheila Terry, meeting reform school boss Dudley Digges and star inmate Frankie Darro, in Warner Bros.’ The Mayor Of Hell, 1933.
Raffles (1939) - Scotland Yard, Did You Say? Inspector McKenzie (Dudley Digges) meets David Niven, the society-thief title character, known best as a cricket player for England, introduced by his host Lord Melrose (Lionel Pape) who mis-remembers who’s been given his new phone number, early in Samuel Goldwyn’s re-make, Raffles, 1939.
I Am A Thief (1934) - Impertinent Fellow After an opening with worried bankers plotting to trap jewel thieves, we meet the principals at a Paris auction, Ricardo Cortez as "Londais," Mary Astor as "Odette," the losing bidder, and Dudley Digges as the bumbling American "Jackson," in I Am A Thief, 1934, directed by Robert Florey.
Narrow Corner, The - I'll Smoke Six Pipes Itinerant South Sea doctor Saunders (Dudley Digges) hosting Captain Nichols (Arthur Hohl) and Blake (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.), the fugitive he's been hired to hide, as they clash over their plans, in The Narrow Corner, 1933, from a Somerset Maugham story.
Narrow Corner, The - The Soul Of Her Now well-bonded, some of the original Somerset Maugham dialogue surviving, Australian traveler Fred (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) and Danish host Eric (Ralph Bellamy) reflect on South Sea island girl Louise (not seen), with Saunders (Dudley Digges), in The Narrow Corner 1933.
