9/16 WE’RE NOT DRESSING (1934). Director: Norman Taurog. Cast: Bing Crosby, Carole Lombard, George Burns, Gracie Allen, Ethel Merman, Leon Errol, Ray Milland. A shipwreck results in a group of passengers being marooned on a desert island and forced to fend for themselves. This fun musical-comedy features the Crosby hits “Love Thy Neighbor”, “May I?”, “Goodnight, Lovely Little Lady” and others. One of Bing’s most popular 1930s films.
PLUS! Extra added comedy short: Charley Chase in “Young Ironsides” (1931). When a wealthy debutante enters a bathing beauty contest in Atlantic City, her disgraced parents hire Charley to find her and bring her home.
9/23 ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES (1938). Director: Michael Curtiz. Cast: James Cagney, Pat O’Brien, Humphrey Bogart, Ann Sheridan, George Bancroft, the Dead End Kids. Two boyhood pals grow up very differently…Cagney becomes a tough gangster and O’Brien becomes a priest. The priest becomes concerned when the neighborhood teenagers (the Dead End Kids) start admiring the gangster’s lifestyle. A hard-hitting drama done in the classic Warner Bros. style.
9/30 BACHELOR MOTHER (1939). Director: Garson Kanin. Cast: Ginger Rogers, David Niven, Charles Coburn. A single girl (Rogers) finds herself becoming the guardian for an abandoned baby. Ginger shines in this delightful screwball comedy.
10/7 CHARLIE CHAN IN HONOLULU (1938). Director: H. Bruce Humberstone. Cast: Sidney Toler, Sen Yung, Phyllis Brooks, George Zucco, Marc Lawrence, Richard Lane. Toler’s first film as Chan finds the famous detective trying to solve a murder on a docked cruise ship.
10/14 CURLY TOP (1935). Director: Irving Cummings. Cast: Shirley Temple, John Boles, Rochelle Hudson, Arthur Treacher, Jane Darwell, Esther Dale, Billy Gilbert. Seven year old Shirley sings such hits as “Animal Crackers In My Soup” and is adopted by wealthy bachelor Boles, who happens to be falling for Shirley’s grown sister (Hudson). One of Shirley’s earliest films and great fun.
10/21 LOOKING FOR TROUBLE (1934). Director: William A. Wellman. Cast: Spencer Tracy, Jack Oakie, Constance Cummings, Morgan Conway, Arline Judge. Tracy and Oakie are teamed as telephone linemen fighting a gang of bank robbers in this rare and highly enjoyable combination of crime story, comedy and action/adventure. Don’t miss this opportunity to see one of Spencer Tracy’s early starring films.
10/28 ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN (1948). Director: Charles Barton. Cast: Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr., Glenn Strange, Lenore Aubert. Universal’s classic combination of comedy and genuine horror finds Bud and Lou tangling with Dracula (Lugosi), the Wolf Man (Chaney) and Frankenstein’s Monster (Strange). A well-done special treat for our Halloween show!
11/4 FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT (1940). Director: Alfred Hitchcock. Cast: Joel McCrae, Laraine Day, Herbert Marshall, George Sanders, Edmund Gwenn, , Eduardo Ciannelli, Robert Benchley. Hitchcock’s second American film is a suspenseful tale of spies and international intrigue, skillfully performed by a top-notch cast.
11/11 FOLLOW THE BOYS (1944). Director: A. Edward Sutherland. Cast: George Raft, Vera Zorina and numerous stars. In honor of Veterans Day, we bring you Universal’s all-star WWII salute to the USO and our fighting troops, featuring special performances by Marlene Dietrich, Orson Welles, the Andrews Sisters, Jeanette MacDonald, Sophie Tucker, Donald O’Connor, Dinah Shore, W.C. Fields and others.
11/18 A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN (1945). Director: Elia Kazan. Cast: Dorothy McGuire, Peggy Ann Garner, James Dunn, Joan Blondell, Lloyd Nolan, James Gleason. Excellent adaptation of Betty Smith’s famous novel of a young girl (Garner) who tries to rise above her tenement life in turn-of-the-century Brooklyn. Wonderful performances, including James Dunn’s Oscar-winning return to the screen.
11/25 LADY ON A TRAIN (1945). Director: Charles David. Cast: Deanna Durbin, Ralph Bellamy, David Bruce, Edward Everett Horton, George Coulouris, Dan Duryea, Patricia Morrison, William Frawley, Allen Jenkins. A young woman (Durbin) witnesses a murder and becomes involved with the victim’s eccentric family. Well-written mystery with humorous moments and even a couple of songs by Deanna.
12/2 SUN VALLEY SERENADE (1941). Director: H. Bruce Humberstone. Cast: Sonja Henie, John Payne, Glenn Miller and his Orchestra, Milton Berle, Lynn Bari, the Nicholas Brothers, Dorothy Dandridge, Joan Davis. We conclude our season with this winter-themed musical-comedy. A member of Miller’s band (Payne) adopts a foreign war refugee as a publicity stunt….but when the “child” arrives in America, she turns out to be fully-grown Sonja! Great Glenn Miller music, including the hits “In the Mood” and “Chattanooga Choo-Choo”. One of 20th Century-Fox’s big hits, and perfect for this time of year.
