Movie Clip

Hallelujah! (1929) - Ain't No Nothin' To Buy Director King Vidor's on-location opening, introducing the Johnsons including Zekiel (Daniel L. Haynes) and Mammy (Fanny Belle DeKnight), dialogue likely by Ransom Rideout, the African-American playwright Vidor hired, in the MGM "all-colored" musical Hallelujah!, 1929.
Hallelujah! (1929) - And Zekiel Became A Preacher Zekiel (Daniel L. Haynes) in a wrathful public mourning, over the death of his brother brought about by his own sinful behavior, Harry Gray as Pappy the preacher, ending with the spiritual by Henry Thacker Burleigh, from King Vidor's Hallelujah, 1929.
Hallelujah! (1929) - Waiting At The End Of The Road Leading man Daniel L. Haynes (as "Zekiel") with the younger brother he calls "Spunk" (Everett McGarrity), in another of director King Vidor's impressive location shots, with another Irving Berlin original, the Dixie Jubilee Singers also credited, early in MGM's Hallelujah!, 1929.
Black Sleep, The (1956) - Maybe We Should Have Confined Him Mad-ish scientist Cadman (Basil Rathbone) brings Dr. Gordon (Herbert Rudley), whom he rescued from hanging because he needed an assistant, to his home, where we meet Casimir, Laurie, Mungo and Daphne (Bela Lugosi, Patricia Blair, Lon Chaney Jr., Phyllis Stanley) in The Black Sleep, 1956.
Black Sleep, The (1956) - Anything Is Justified In his nifty secret coastal operating lab, Dr. Cadman (Basil Rathbone), assisted by Laurie and Daphne (Patricia Blake, Phyllis Stanley) alarms Gordon (Herbert Rudley), the surgeon he recently saved from execution, with his work on “K-6” (George Sawaya, in The Black Sleep, 1956.
Black Sleep, The (1956) - I Am Bohemond The Crusader Significant spoiler here, as Gordon (Herbert Rudley) and Laurie (Patricia Blake) have penetrated the secret wing where their employer Cadman (Basil Rathbone) imprisons his subjects, including John Carradine, George Sawaya, Sally Yarnell and Tor Johnson, the freak show, in The Black Sleep, 1956.
Billy The Kid (1930) - Killin' Rats Comes Natural Righteous landowner Tunston (Wyndham Standing) is having it out with scofflaw sheriff Donovan (James A. Marcus) in 1880’s Lincoln County, NM, when star John Mack Brown (title character) make his entrance, Chris-Pin Martin his sidekick, in Billy The Kid, 1930, from MGM and director King Vidor.
Billy The Kid (1930) - Throw Away That Tin Star The arrival of Claire (Kay Johnson), fiancée of benevolent rancher Tunston (Wyndham Standing), gets the attention of gunslinger Grant (Frank Hagney), the title character (John Mack Brown) intervening and Wallace Beery making his first appearance as lawman Pat Garrett, in Billy The Kid, 1930.
Champ, The (1931) - Ya Big Palooka LA boxing promoters visiting Tijuana rightly conclude that former champ Wallace Beery (title character) is not up to a fight, his posse (Roscoe Ates, Edward Brophy) splitting, leaving son Dink (Jackie Cooper) in an early, intimate scene from director King Vidor, in The Champ, 1931.
Champ, The (1931) - I Wouldn't Take A Drink Straight from the titles, pointing out that they are on location in Tijuana, Mexico, Wallace Beery the title character, Jackie Cooper the son "Dink," in the hit that made them both box office stars, Jesse Scott the young friend, from King Vidor and MGM, in The Champ, 1931.
Champ, The (1931) - Keep Your Chin Up Compressed melodrama, Wallace Beery (title character) and Jackie Cooper (his son "Dink") watch "Little Champ" run his first race, as Linda (Irene Rich), with husband Tony (Hale Hamilton) realizes she's just met the son she gave up, then a crash, King Vidor directing MGM's The Champ, 1931.
Champ, The (1931) - Give The Kid A Chance At first amicable Tony (Carleton Young) and Linda (Irene Rich) see off her long-lost son Dink (Jackie Cooper) after a visit, his father (Wallace Beery, title character, with sidekick Roscoe Ates) paid for his trouble, then later in a Tijuana casino, pressed to compromise, in The Champ, 1931.
