Very Honorable Guy, A (1934) - I May Look Dumb In the opening scene we met goons Ponzetti and O’Hara (Harold Huber, Arthur Vinton) who had the idea to use the popular “Feet” Samuels (Joe E. Brown, title character) as a means to get to Hendrickson (George Pat Collins), who owes their gangster boss, and it goes plenty wrong, Lloyd Bacon directing, in A Very Honorable Guy, 1934, from a Damon Runyon story.
Slight Case Of Murder, A (1938) - Wash Your Neck Speaking from the original Damon Runyon and Howard Lindsay play, bootlegger Remy Marko (Edward G. Robinson) informs his troops (Edward Brophy, Allen Jenkins, Harold Huber et al) of the new plan, early in Warner Bros.' A Slight Case Of Murder, 1938.
Kit Carson (1940) - Horizon Fever Efficient framing and opening from screenwriter George Bruce and director George B. Seitz, introducing Jon Hall as the title character, Ward Bond his man “Ape” and Harold Huber as Lopez, expressing attitudes both wise and nasty, then cracking action as the Shoshone attack, in independent producer Edward Small’s Kit Carson, 1940.
Kit Carson (1940) - They'd Kinda Like Them Brass Buttons Clever scene by director George Seitz, Raymond Hatton (said to have appeared in 500 movies) as host Bridger advises bathing Jon Hall (title character) and crew (Ward Bond, Harold Huber) about the offer from Fremont (Dana Andrews as the historical character) and Terry (“Lone Ranger” Clayton Moore), Lynn Bari in the neighboring tub, in producer Edward Small’s Kit Carson, 1940.
Kit Carson (1940) - Don't Hurry So Fast Producer Edward Small getting his money’s worth in Monument Valley (even if the story takes place along the distant Oregon Trail), Dana Andrews as (historical figure) Captain Fremont wants to hurry the wagon train, civilian Clayton Moore obeying until Jon Hall (title character) and his team (Ward Bond, Harold Huber) show up to take the trail guide jobs they at first refused, Lynn Bari the affronted Miss Murphy, in Kit Carson, 1940.
Joker Is Wild, The (1957) - I Cried For You Director Charles Vidor's opening, rival speakeasy owners Bliss (Harold Huber) and Parker (Ted de Corsia) facing off as leading man Frank Sinatra performs, playing entertainer Joe E. Brown, the song credited to Arthur Freed, Gus Arnheim and Abe Lyman, in the 1957 bio-pic The Joker Is Wild.
Dance, Girl, Dance - Too Classy When a night club boss (Harold Huber) isn't buying the Hula routine featuring Judy (Maureen O'Hara), Madame Basilova (Maria Ouspenskaya) produces Bubbles (Lucille Ball) just in time, in Dance, Girl, Dance, 1940.
