Thirteen Women (1932) - She Seemed Very Charming We’ve just met Ricardo Cortez as L-A detective Clive, investigating a suicide on a just-arrived train, questioning spooky Ursula (Myrna Loy), who somehow psychically caused it, and who gives a false name, whereupon we join her worried former boarding school classmates Laura, Jo and Grace (Irene Dunne, Jill Esmond, Florence Eldridge) in Thirteen Women, 1932.
Thirteen Women (1932) - One Chain Of Destiny With extensive exposition in the opening scene we learned that boarding-school grad trapeze artist June (the brunette, Mary Duncan) is nervous because a swami predicted the death of her sister (Harriet Hagman), after which we meet him (C. Henry Gordon) and Myrna Loy as Ursula, whose role is not explained as yet, in RKO’s Thirteen Women, 1932.
Thirteen Women (1932) - Those Fool Horoscopes We learn here that somehow super-psychic powered Ursula (Myrna Loy) has been forging letters from her evidently credible lover the Swami, instigating the deaths of boarding school roommates, adding Hazel (Peg Entwistle) to her tally, whereupon we meet Laura (Irene Dunne) who reaches out to Helen (Kay Johnson), in RKO’s Thirteen Women, 1932.
Penguin Pool Murder (1932) - Too Bad About Your Stock Exteriors and interiors at the old New York Aquarium at Battery Park (closed in 1941) make good framing for striking intensity with exhibitor Hemingway (Clarence Wilson), broker Parker (Guy Usher) and his sneaking wife (Mae Clarke), in the first “Miss Withers” picture, starring Edna May Oliver, from the Stuart Palmer novel, Penguin Pool Murder, 1932.
Penguin Pool Murder (1932) - I Believe The Word Is "Scrammed" Upstairs at the aquarium, debriefing witnesses, James Gleason as cop Piper tangles with Edna May Oliver as the lead, schoolteacher-snoop Miss Withers, interviewing potential suspect Seymour (Donald Cook), as the cop Donovan (Edgar Kennedy) stops another crime, in Penguin Pool Murder, 1932.
Penguin Pool Murder (1932) - Never Try To Evade The Law Foul play already underway, Joe Hermano the escaping thief, then the delightful introduction, George Archainbaud directing, of Edna May Oliver as schoolteacher Miss Withers in the first feature in the series based on Stuart Palmer’s novels, shot inside the old New York Aquarium, James Donlan the guard, Edgar Kennedy the cop, in Penguin Pool Murder, 1932.
Penguin Pool Murder (1932) - I Could Get A Substitute Dropping by her pad to collect her exemplary notes on his interviews, cop Piper (James Gleason) is surprised by the royal spread provided by Miss Withers (Edna May Oliver, in her first appearance as the character from the Stuart Palmer novels), with much sparking as he realizes her hat-pin may have been the weapon, in Penguin Pool Murder, 1932.
Penguin Pool Murder (1932) - That's A Little Vulgar Following a lead, Edna May Oliver as schoolteacher-sleuth Miss Withers engages the sultry sectary (Mary Mason) of the victim, her last barb a reference to the name of a well known women’s tonic, then bumps into maybe-suspicious lawyer Costello (Robert Armstrong) at the cop shop, in the first in the series, Penguin Pool Murder, 1932.
Kansan, The (1943) - He's No Tenderfoot Straight to business in this RKO programmer, Richard Dix rides into a Kansas town where the James Gang is making trouble (the one who gets away is George "Superman" Reeves), and we meet Albert Dekker, the banker and Jane Wyatt, the overdressed nurse, in The Kansan, 1943.
Kansan, The (1943) - Lot Of Texas Men In Town Riding around with pal Jeff (Victor Jory), who's the brother of his new employer, Bonniwell (Richard Dix), who's just been made sheriff of Broken Lance, KS, meets his older cattleman pal Tom (Eugene Pallette) and finds out just how rigged things really are, in The Kansan, 1943.
Lady Refuses, The (1931) - A Short Life And A Merry One Sir Gerald (Gilbert Emery) has just been stood-up by playboy son Russell (John Darrow), who scampers with disreputable Berthine (Margaret Livingston), only later noticing vagrant June (Betty Compson), pursued by the bobbies, but rescued by the baronet, early in The Lady Refuses, 1931.
Lady Refuses, The (1931) - Blighter Can't Even Crawl Made-over June (Betty Compson) has secretly been positioned by the English nobleman father of Russell (John Darrow) to pry him away from gold-digging Berthine (Margaret Livingston) and her crowd, this being their first not-accidental encounter, in The Lady Refuses, 1931, directed by George Archainbaud.
