One Night At Susie's (1930) - These Millionaires, They're So Eccentric Press agent Dick (Douglas Fairbanks) is alarmed when the showgirl pals of his fianceè Mary (Billie Dove) are turned away from a party at the posh apartment of her crooked Broadway producer, with whom she’s stuck upstairs, with a neat elevator process-shot, in One Night At Susie’s, 1930.
One Night At Susie's (1930) - Rods On The Table Creditable early-talkie technique, jovial murderous mobsters clustered around the microphone, introducing Susie (Helen Ware) of the title and providing backstory for leading man Douglas Fairbanks Jr., opening the First National Billie Dove vehicle One Night At Susie’s, 1930.
One Night At Susie's (1930) - Will Your Underwear Fit Him? Broadway press agent Dick (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) introduces showgirl fianceè Mary (Billie Dove) to good-samaritan Susie (Helen Ware), boarding-house operator and his de-facto mom, who later deals with another tenant and her sort-of butler (Tully Marshall), in One Night At Susie’s, 1930.
Reckless Hour, The (1931) - With Dishonorable Intentions Clever opening, with Dorothy Mackaill introduced in a capacity not immediately apparent as Margaret, several uncredited speaking parts before Walter Byron, as freewheeling Allen, appears, in the First National/Warner Bros. pre-code potboiler The Reckless Hour, 1931, featuring Joan Blondell.
Reckless Hour, The (1931) - We Use Cigar Coupons Snappy introduction of Joan Blondell as sister Myrtle, and Helen Ware as mom Harriet, as heroine Margaret (Dorothy Mackaill) returns to the New Jersey family home, father (H.B. Warner) presiding and eager Harry (Joe Donahue) visiting, in Warner Bros.' The Reckless Hour, 1931.
Reckless Hour, The (1931) - I Saw Her First Non-affluent Jersey girl Margaret (Dorothy Mackaill) on the town with her playboy date Allen (Walter Byron), who runs into his married illustrator pal Ed (Conrad Nagel), and isn't entirely kidding when he asserts his claim, in the pre-Code melodrama The Reckless Hour, 1931.
