Mexican Spitfire Sees A Ghost (1942) - Everything's Gonna Be Honky Tonky Probably just to get star Lupe Velez into the cute maid outfit, she and Leon Errol as Uncle Matt masquerade as servants to nervous Percy (Donald MacBride) and sister (Minna Gombel), to help her husband Denny (Buddy Rogers) save a business deal, in Mexican Spitfire Sees A Ghost, 1942.
Mexican Spitfire Sees A Ghost (1942) - Think Of Your Blue Blood Pressure Denny (Charles "Buddy" Rogers) and his aunt and uncle (Elisabeth Risdon, Leon Errol) are discussing how to handle his snooty new potential clients when the star (Lupe Velez as Carmelita) makes her first appearance, in Mexican Spitfire Sees A Ghost, 1942, the 5th in the series.
Girl From Mexico, The (1939) - Negra Consentida New Yorker Denny (Donald Woods), stuck in a remote Mexican village while trying to recruit a singer for a radio show, is dazzled when sparky Carmelita (Lupe Velez), with whom he’s already tangled, lets loose on a song (by Joaqùin Pardavè), in The Girl From Mexico, 1939.
Girl From Mexico, The (1939) - Miss Nifty Nose! Lupe Velez, as Carmelita from Mexico, argues with the portrait of the snooty fianceè of the New York ad man who recruited her, for whom she’s now fallen, then meets Leon Errol as his Uncle Matt, who became a regular in her ensuing Mexican Spitfire series, in The Girl From Mexico, 1939.
Girl From Mexico, The (1939) - Little Wet Firecracker New York ad man Denny (Donald Woods) is having no luck in Mexico recruiting a singer for a radio show when he meets the knockout hired help Carmelita (Lupe Velez), her first scene in the first picture in un-premeditated RKO Mexican Spitfire series, The Girl From Mexico, 1939.
Rainmakers, The (1935) - Did I Get Any On You? Comics Wheeler and Woolsey are new partners, as ex-farmer Billy and flop rainmaker Roscoe, arriving in a California town where big-shot Parker (Berton Churchill) plans to fleece the locals, and Margie (Dorothy Lee) works with her benevolent banker dad (George Meeker), in The Rainmakers, 1935.
Rainmakers, The (1935) - I'm Leading A Double Life The principals, RKO comedy team (Bert) Wheeler (as farmer Billy) and (Robert) Woolsey (as charlatan rainmaker Roscoe) have just met, the former giving the latter shelter in his storm cellar after his house has blown away, clever banter ensuing, in the 1935 programmer The Rainmakers.
Men Against The Sky (1940) - What Do They Want For A Buck? Introduced by a barker (Earle Hodgins), Richard Dix is hero Mercedes, an inebriate flier whose barnstorming days are about to end, impressive action, then visited by his dutiful sister (Wendy Barrie), opening RKO’s Men Against The Sky, 1940, screenplay by Nathanael West.
Men Against The Sky (1940) - Toys In A Wind Tunnel Engineer Ames (Kent Taylor) is less discouraged than his boss (Edmund Lowe) by a wind tunnel test, and persuaded by his sketch artist Kay (Wendy Barrie) to consider plans he doesn’t know were drawn up by her disgraced ex-flier brother (Richard Dix), in Men Against The Sky, 1940.
Way Down South (1939) - Bayou Lovelle Credits notable for their content, co-star Clarence Muse and poet Langston Hughes sharing original screenplay credit, framing scenes at the plantation then Muse, his owner Ralph Morgan, and Edwin Maxwell with exposition, in producer Sol Lesser's musical one-off Way Down South, 1939.
Way Down South (1939) - Good Ground Last piece of a long production number, featuring the Hall Johnson choir, song by screenwriters Clarence Muse and Langston Hughes, ending in a plot twist, as benevolent plantation owner Reid (Ralph Morgan) dies in a mishap, his son (Bobby Breen) suddenly the man, in Way Down South, 1939.
They Met In Argentina - No More Cigarettes Maureen O'Hara is plausible (?) as Argentine-Irish cigarette-for-charity girl Lolita O'Shea, meeting handsome American James Ellison, and local Alberto (Alberto Vila), opening RKO's They Met In Argentina, 1941.
