Love Crazy (1941)

Once again the teaming of Myrna Loy and William Powell comes up aces. These two pros play off each other so well that it’s no wonder MGM teamed them for […]

A Place of One’s Own (1945)

In the spirit of Halloween Kristina from Speakeasy and I assigned each other films of a ghastly nature. For those not accustomed to the Mad Movie Challenge, it’s when Kristina […]

Voodoo Man (1944)

For this Monogram low budget special we get three well known boogie men showing up for the film’s rapidly paced 60 minutes. One of them a horror film Icon. If […]

Captains of the Clouds (1942)

For the O Canada Blogathon kindly put on by Kristina at Speakeasy and Ruth of Silver Screenings the legendary James Cagney is joining the Royal Canadian Air Force to do […]

The Gay Falcon (1941)

Playboy Criminologist! So flash the newspaper headlines in describing our dashing crime solver played by a devilishly entertaining George Sanders. While this is the first film in the series of […]

Grand Central Murder (1942)

Just because Van Heflin was an Oscar winner doesn’t mean that MGM used him exclusively in A budget pictures. In the words of Sam Levene, Heflin is a “Park Avenue […]

The Doctor Takes a Wife (1940)

Columbia studios takes another shot at the screwball comedy here with a tip of the hat towards a battle of the sexes script featuring stars of the day Loretta Young […]

Singapore (1947)

“It was five long years since I’d been here but nothing was changed. From every corner memories came back to me. Things I’d hoped I’d forgotten.” So says Fred MacMurray’s […]

The Shepherd of the Hills (1941)

If one didn’t know better you’d think that you were watching a John Ford film here as many of the cast members are from Ford’s stock company. Not to worry […]

The Big Noise (1944)

I finally got around to watching a Laurel and Hardy movie. Something I haven’t done in what has to be 20 plus years and I can’t give you an answer […]

Bombardier (1943)

At times this film is reminiscent of the Pat O’Brien – James Cagney films of the early thirties like Here Comes the Navy and Devil Dogs of the Air. Especially […]

The Texas Rangers Ride Again (1940)

If it wasn’t for the absence of John Wayne with his pals Ray Corrigan and Max Terhune, I would swear I was watching a Three Mesquiteers programmer. Then again this […]

Fingers at the Window (1942)

If one joined this movie just after the opening credits came to a close you would probably get the feeling that you were watching a Universal Studios thriller in the vein […]

The Story of Seabiscuit (1949)

What would film history be like without the charm of Barry Fitzgerald? Can’t you just see Barry polishing his Oscar saying “I shudder to even think such thoughts.” As Shirley […]

Shadows Over Chinatown (1946)

In what turned out to be his final year portraying famed detective Charlie Chan, Sidney Toler stars once again alongside Number two son Victor Sen Yung and Mantan Moreland as […]
