The Magic Carpet (1951)

The film that Lucille Ball made for spite! This Sam Katzman production released through Harry Cohn’s Columbia Studios casts Lucy in this sword and sandals “epic” that wouldn’t even have […]

The Criminal Code (1931)

In the year that saw the long time supporting player Boris Karloff attain “overnight” stardom, he played far more diverse roles than just the Monster of Mary Shelley’s imagination by […]

Virtue (1932)

From Harry Cohn’s Columbia studios comes this fine example of the Hollywood pre-code era when studios would put more risqué topics on the screen, splashing it with a healthier dose of skin and sex […]

Below the Sea (1933)

“If I were running this ship, there’s three things I would bar. Women, dogs and gentlemen.” says a gruff and grizzled Ralph Bellamy. Opening with a bang, this sunken treasure […]

If You Could Only Cook (1935)

There’s a lovely innocence to the early days of the screwball comedy and once again it’s Jean Arthur that best personifies the leading lady of both this film and the […]

Arizona (1931)

One might easily assume that this early John Wayne feature is another of his low budget Monogram westerns that have fallen into public domain and can be found in any […]

Together Again (1944)

This entry into the screwball comedy genre comes by way of Columbia Studios and director Charles Vidor. It features Irene Dunne caught squarely in the eyesight of Mr. Charles Boyer’s […]

The Iron Glove (1954)

Before William Castle decided to turn into a real life P.T. Barnum type by selling himself to the public much like Hitchcock to better market his thriller movies, he slummed for producer […]

Meet Boston Blackie (1941)

Since I’m off to Boston. For my first title in the Chester Morris series I may as well start with the film that introduced him as the character created by Jack […]

Theodora Goes Wild (1936)

Theodora played by beautiful Irene Dune lives in Lynnfield Connecticut. She’s a young lady raised in the midst of a whole troop of “cackling old hens.” Things are about to […]

Love On The Run (1936)

When MGM loaned out Clark Gable to Columbia and so called tyrant Harry Cohn as some sort of punishment, Gable got the last laugh and a little statuette to go […]

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 […]

The Bamboo Prison (1954)

Perhaps this film played much better during the McCarthy communism witch hunts. Then again I’d like to think the general public wasn’t quite this naive as Harry Cohn’s studio would […]
