Movie Clip

Island Of Lost Souls (1932) -- (Movie Clip) A Laughing Jackass Paul Hurst as Donahue has the unlucky assignment of escorting Ruth (Leila Hyams), come to find her fiancè Parker (Richard Arlen), on the south sea island where he’s been taken in by mad Dr. Moreau (Charles Laughton), knowing nothing as yet about his freaky man-beasts and “bio-anthropological research,” in Island Of Lost Souls, 1932.
College Humor (1933) -- (Movie Clip) Going My Way? Half hour into the picture, singing Professor Danvers (Bing Crosby) has just dismissed his class and we finally meet 4th-billed Mary Carlisle as much-discussed co-ed Barbara, who toys with the professor then with waiting football star Mondrake (Richard Arlen), in Paramount’s College Humor 1933.
Straight Place And Show (1938) -- (Movie Clip) With You On My Mind In the opening scenes no trace of the stars (The Ritz Brothers) but we’ve met “society horsewoman” Barbara (Phyllis Brooks) who was late for her own engagement party, and her fiancè (Richard Arlen) and his discarded admirer, Broadway’s Ethel Merman, with an original by Lew Pollack and Lew Brown, in Straight Place And Show, 1938.
Island Of Lost Souls (1932) -- (Movie Clip) You Lost A Man South Seas freighter Captain Davies (Stanley Fields) delivering his cargo of animals, contrives to drop off rescued Parker (Richard Allen), whom he dislikes, with his mysterious customer Dr. Moreau (Charles Laughton) and his strange looking crew, in Universal's Island Of Lost Souls, 1932.
Island Of Lost Souls (1932) -- (Movie Clip) A Man Has Come From The Sea We're only just finding out what Dr. Moreau (Charles Laughton) is up to on his secret South Seas island, telling crony Montgomery (Arthur Hohl) why he wants his experimental part-ape female Lota (Kathleen Burke) to meet his new captive-guest Parker (Richard Arlen), in Island Of Lost Souls, 1932. from H.G. Wells' The Island Of Dr. Moreau
Island Of Lost Souls (1932) -- (Movie Clip) Strange Looking Natives For now, scientist Moreau (Charles Laughton) is the polite host, forced by circumstances beyond his control to welcome shipwrecked Parker (Richard Arlen), to his private South Seas island, so his comments are circumspect, in Universal’s Island Of Lost Souls, 1932, from an H.G. Wells novel.
Thunderbolt (1929) -- (Movie Clip) Don't You Try To Ritzy Me Josef von Sternberg directs with camera movement constrained by early-talkie sound recording, brassy Ritzy (Fay Wray) not buckling under pressure from cop William L. Thorne, asking after her old gangster boyfriend and threatening her new one (Richard Arlen), in Thunderbolt, 1929.
Wings (1927) -- (Movie Clip) Luck Or No Luck Finally arrived at flight school, Jack (Charles “Buddy” Rogers) and David (Richard Arlen) meet their decidedly decent new comrade White (Gary Cooper, in an important early role), discussing luck as director William A. Wellman adds a dash of horror, in his Academy Award-winning Wings, 1927.
Wings (1927) -- (Movie Clip) The Shooting Star Director (and WWI flier) William A. Wellman introducing the principals, in a small American town Jack (Charles "Buddy" Rogers) cares about his hot-rod but not about Mary (Clara Bow), and hopes to pry visiting Sylvia (Jobyna Ralston) away from affluent David (Richard Arlen), in Wings, 1927.
Wings (1927) -- (Movie Clip) Youse Powder Puff Guys With decent schtick from the drill sergeant (Gunboat Smith) and "Unconscious" Walter (Roscoe Karns), Jack (Charles "Buddy" Rogers) bonds with wealthier David (Richard Arlen) over boxing, setting aside their romantic rivalry as they train to become WWI aviators, in William A. Wellman's Wings, 1927.
Wings (1927) -- (Movie Clip) On The High Seas Of Heaven Director William A. Wellman’s first flight action scene, Charles “Buddy” Rogers (as Jack) and Richard Arlen (as David), though hard to recognize in goggles, doing much of their own flying, encountering the German ace Kellerman (certainly based on Baron von Richtofen), in Wings, 1927.
Tiger Shark (1932) -- (Movie Clip) Open, Fishing News Opening titles and framing from Howard Hawks' Tiger Shark, 1932, starring Edward G. Robinson as a Portugese immigrant fisherman, with Zita Johann and Richard Arlen.
