Honeymoon (1947) - The Walter Pidgeon Type American consul David (Franchot Tone) brought stranded bride Barbara (Shirley Temple) to a Mexico City club for a meal, as she tries to locate her soldier fiancé Phil, but she’s up for dancing too, which worries his future father-in-law (Julio Villareal), in Honeymoon, 1947.
Honeymoon (1947) - Every Smart Young Diplomat Franchot Tone is David, U.S. Consul in Mexico City receiving his local fiancée (Lina Romay), Gene Lockhart with his staff, then young Barbara (Shirley Temple) from Minnesota, needing help because her soldier fiancé (Guy Madison) couldn’t make their wedding date, in RKO’s Honeymoon, 1947.
Fashions Of 1934 (1934) - I'm Not Much Fun At A Funeral Clever opening, William Dieterle directing from a story and screenplay credited to Harry Collins, Warren Duff, Hugh Herbert and Carl Erickson, introducing William Powell who’s running a scam, Frank McHugh his sidekick, Dorothy Burgess the snarky gal-pal and Bette Davis, in a platinum wig, the unexpected inspiration, in Fashions Of 1934, 1934.
Fashions Of 1934 (1934) - I'm Going To Love Paris! Broke investor turned fashion scam artist “Sherry” Nash (William Powell), with his team (Frank McHugh as Snap, Bette Davis as Lynn), has persuaded the New York designers he was ripping-off to send him to Paris to steal fashions, but they meet former partners Glenda and Harry (Dorothy Burgess, Gordon Westcott) at the docks, in Fashions Of 1934, 1934.
Fashions Of 1934 (1934) - Isn't That A Hottie? Frank McHugh as Snap is sidekick to William Powell as broke investor Nash, conniving with models (Dorothy Burgess as Glenda) and new-recruit fashion artist Lynn (Bette Davis) to photograph then counterfeit the latest Paris designs, delivered by chauffeur Harry (Gordon Westcott) en route to New York couture houses, in Fashions Of 1934, 1934.
Fashions Of 1934 (1934) - Spin A Little Web Of Dreams Nearly an hour into the picture and finally the big (and only) Busby Berkeley number, Verree Teasdale’s song, by Sammy Fain and Irving Kahal, introduces a feather and fashion-based production, gowns per usual by Orry-Kelly, in Warner Bros.’ Fashions Of 1934, 1934, starring William Powell and Bette Davis.
Fashions Of 1934 (1934) - What Pried You Loose? Now in Paris, posing as society types but really stealing haute-couture designs, Bette Davis (who hated the movie and her role but must have loved her co-star!) as designer/artist Lynn and William Powell as “Sherry,” (with partner Frank McHugh playing his driver) finally get good news from New York, in Fashions Of 1934, 1934.
Gold Diggers Of 1937 (1936) - The Boston Bluntingtons Joan Blondell as jobless showgirl Norma is sitting out her friends’ hunt for generous men-folk on the train from Atlantic City but winds up having to flee a hoarde of hungry insurance salesmen, taking refuge in a sleeper where she meets aspiring musician and for-now salesman Rosmer (Dick Powell, Blondell’s new husband at the time!), early in Gold Diggers Of 1937, 1936.
Gold Diggers Of 1937 (1936) - All's Fair In Love And War Busby Berkeley’s dance direction at last with some scale in the finalè number, Dick Powell and Lee Dixon, with Joan Blondell and Rosalind Marquis, in a Harry Warren/Al Dubin original composition for Warner Bros., in what was technically the 5th film in the series (counting the lost silents), in Gold Diggers Of 1937, 1936.
Gold Diggers Of 1937 (1936) - Life Insurance Song From director Lloyd Bacon and Warner Bros., opening with William Davidson as the insurance big-wig pulling bons vivants Rosmer (Dick Powell) and sidekick Oglethorpe (Lee Dixon) to the Atlantic City convention stage for a nutty original by Harold Arlen and E.Y. “Yip” Harburg, in Gold Diggers Of 1937, 1936, also starring Glenda Farrell and Joan Blondell.
Gold Diggers Of 1937 (1936) - The Broker Ripped His Pants From the opening at an Atlantic City insurance salesman’s convention, to the train station where chorus girls Genevieve and Norma (Glenda Farrell, Joan Blondell) lament the collapse of their musical, with Irene Ware as “Irene” and Rosalind Marquis as Sally, and Iris Adrian as snooty Verna, the first appearance for all, in Warner Bros.’ Gold Diggers Of 1937, 1936.
Gold Diggers Of 1937 (1936) - Speaking Of The Weather Dick Powell and Joan Blondell, who married in September of 1936, before this picture was released December 26, with as cute a number as any they did, another Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg original, begun after she, the newly hired secretary, ribs him, the dilettante insurance salesman, for not finding her a job, in Gold Diggers Of 1937, 1936.
