Tokyo Joe (1949) - I Got Wise To Myself Just returned to Tokyo, American Joe (Humphrey Bogart) drops in to visit Trina (Florence Marley), the wife he abandoned before the war, and whom he had believed was dead, in Tokyo Joe, 1949, the second film from Bogart's own Santana Productions.
Lady In The Lake (1947) - Imagine You Needing Ice Cubes! Audrey Totter (as editor "Adrienne Fromset") is the subject of director-star Robert Montgomery's camera, who, as Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe, appears in a mirror, in this early scene from Lady In The Lake, 1947.
Lady In The Lake (1947) - My Name Is Marlowe Director and star Robert Montgomery in his introduction of himself, as Raymond Chandler's detective, and "you," as the first-hand viewer, beginning the subjective-camera feature Lady In The Lake, 1947.
Lady In The Lake (1947) - You Like Our Jail? Director-star Robert Montgomery, in his subjective-camera experiment, playing Raymond Chandler's "Philip Marlowe," sees Lloyd Nolan ("Lt. DeGarmot") and Capt. Kane (Tom Tully) in The Lady In The Lake, 1947.
Lady In The Lake (1947) - Opening Credits Give director and star Robert Montgomery credit right off the bat, going full-Christmas with the opening credits, then hitting the sour note, in the subjective-camera experiment Lady In The Lake, 1947, from Raymond Chandler's novel.
Destination Tokyo (1943) - I Never Seen A Doll On A Submarine Officers under command of Captain Cassidy (Cary Grant) take the U.S.S. Copperfin out, crewmen Tin Can (Dane Clark), Mike (Tom Tully), Cookie (Alan Hale) and Wolf (John Garfield) introduced, in Delmer Daves' Destination Tokyo, 1943.

Destination Tokyo (1943) - Join Us In Holding Our Breath The climax of a lengthy suspense sequence, Cary Grant as the steely Captain Cassidy guides the U.S.S.

Hunted, The (1948) - Why Else Do Guys Drink? Having just helped his now-paroled ex-girlfriend, whom he sent to jail, and who maintains her innocence, find a new job, cop Johnny (Preston Foster) drops in on barkeep Joe (George Chandler), who remembers the case, in The Hunted, 1948, from director Jack Bernhard and writer Steve Fisher.
Hunted, The (1948) - This Case Had A Queer Twist Cracking opening, from the last frame of credits, cop Johnny (Preston Foster) at a Los Angeles bus station, tracking (we’ll learn) Belita as paroled Laura, then meeting with ladies’ parole officer Miss Turner (Edna Holland), in The Hunted, 1948, from Allied Artists and director Jack Bernhard.
Hunted, The (1948) - Lovely, But Still A Liar Still inquiring about his ex-girlfriend, for whom he’s just found a job, after she spent four years in prison, for a crime she claims she didn’t commit, and for which he sent her up, cop Johnny (Preston Foster) visits her lawyer Rand (Pierre Watkin), who, like him, she once swore to kill, in The Hunted, 1948.
