Movie Clip

Untamed Youth (1957) - Healthy Outdoor Work In this instance the title refers to naked blonde teenagers, Penny (Mamie Van Doren) and Janey (Lori Nelson), captured by Mitch (Robert Foulk) and brought before the judge (Lurene Tuttle), opening Untamed Youth, 1957.
Hot Blood (1956) - Suspicion Of Being Gypsies Los Angeles gypsy Marco (Luther Adler) and gang at the police station where they spring guests Papa (Joseph Calleia), betrothed Annie (Jane Russell) and Xano (Russell's brother Jamie), then groom Sephano/Steve (Cornel Wilde) with his concurrent girlfriend (Helen Westcott), early in Nicholas Ray's Hot Blood, 1956.
Singin' In The Rain (1952) - I'm Not An Actor! After the premiere, silent-movie star Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) with musical partner Cosmo (Donald O’Connor) in Hollywood, gets mobbed and, with a coy contemporary-swashbuckling escape, meets opinionated Cathy (Debbie Reynolds), early in MGM’s Singin’ In The Rain, 1952.
Left Handed Gun, The (1958) - Can't Get Away From The Bible Just picked up on the range by English-born rancher Tunstall (Colin Keith-Johnston), Paul Newman as Billy the Kid is by turns deceptive, intellectually curious, and protective, in Arthur Penn’s revisionist Western based on Gore Vidal’s teleplay, The Left Handed Gun, 1958.
Robin And The 7 Hoods (1964) - Big Jim Was A Schmendrick The opening featuring an un-billed Edward G. Robinson, none of the Rat Pack guys, and fourth-billed Peter Falk as spoofy Chicago thug Guy Gisborne, his name of course derived from Robin Hood, the general idea behind the Frank Sinatra-produced musical Robin And The 7 Hoods, 1964.
Girl In White, The (1952) - She Needs A Real Doctor Thirty-something June Allyson, still expected to play a teen, in this case the subject of the bio-pic, pioneering New York doctor Emily Dunning Barringer, her mom falling ill, and Dr. Yeomans (Mildred Dunnock), loosely based on a real person, stepping up, opening The Girl In White, 1952.
