Torpedo Run (1958) - Rough On The Skipper Opening scene, clearly tormented submarine Commander Doyle (Glenn Ford) takes out a Japanese ship with one shot, supported by executive officer Sloan (Ernest Borgnine), in Torpedo Run, 1958, from a story by Richard Sale.
Torpedo Run (1958) - I'm A Bad Risk Ending a sequence in which Cmdr. Doyle (Glenn Ford) had to torpedo the transport ship carrying his wife and daughter, because it was used to “screen” a Japanese ship he was obligated to attack, a flashback to his courtship with Jane (Diane Brewster), with his best-buddy Lt. Archie Sloan (Ernest Borgnine), in Torpedo Run, 1958.
Never So Few (1959) - Opening, In The Hills Of North Burma Handy cast I-D shots are featured in the opening to John Sturges' World War Two Burma adventure Never So Few, 1959, starring Frank Sinatra, Gina Lollobrigida, Peter Lawford and Steve McQueen.
Love Before Breakfast (1936) - She Ran After An Old Airedale Engaged New Yorkers Kay (Carole Lombard) and Bill (Cesar Romero), introduced here, have no idea that zillionaire Scott (Preston Foster) is behind the job offer that’s got him rushing for the boat to Japan, all meeting with the kooky countess (Betty Lawford) at the pier, early in Love Before Breakfast, 1936.
Love Before Breakfast (1936) - Where'd You Get This Blue Eye? Carole Lombard as socialite Kay was accidentally clobbered by her rich suitor Scott (Preston Foster) the night before, so she visits Charles (George Andre Beranger) at the salon, only to find he’s not given up, in Universal’s Love Before Breakfast, 1936.
Love Before Breakfast (1936) - Is That A Name Or A Condition? Another big outfit for Carole Lomard, as society gal Kay, with her mother (Janet Beecher), who is sort of supporting Scott (Preston Foster), her rich and rejected would-be boyfriend, who has already intercepted her date Stu (Don Briggs), in Love Before Breakfast, 1936.
Cimarron (1960) - You're Gonna Get Buried Here Bustle on April 21, 1889, eve of the Oklahoma Land Rush, Yancey and Sabra (Glenn Ford, Maria Schell) meet his old friends the Peglers (Robert Keith, Aline MacMahon) and intervene as Yountis (Charles McGraw) and thugs hassle an Indian (Ben Red Feather) and family, also Harry Morgan as Jesse, in Cimarron, 1960.
Bundle Of Joy (1956) - Worry About Tomorrow The married co-stars Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds haven't yet met, story-wise, so they split the opening song by Josef Myrow and Mack Gordon, in Bundle Of Joy, the 1956 musical re-make of Bachelor Mother, 1939.

Bundle Of Joy (1956) - Your Charming Character Shopgirl Polly (Debbie Reynolds), dismissed and wrongly assumed to be the mother of a foundling, deals with colleague Freddie (Tommy Noonan) then with Dan (Eddie Fisher, Reynolds' husband), the conscientious son of the boss, in Bundle Of Joy, 1956.
Cimarron (1960) - All Them Too-Sooners Rolling from Kansas for the 1889 Oklahoma Land Rush, newlyweds Yancey and Sabra (Glenn Ford, Maria Schell) meet the Wyatt’s (Arthur O’Connell, Mercedes McCambridge) and brood, and John Pickard the cavalry captain organizing the event, in producer Edmund Grainger’s Cimarron, 1960.
