9/15  MY FRIEND IRMA (1949)  Director: George Marshall.  Cast: Marie Wilson, Diana Lynn, John Lund, Don DeFore, Hans Conreid and introducing Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.  Paramount’s hit comedy based on the popular radio sitcom, and the film that introduced the team of Martin & Lewis to moviegoers.  Dean and Jerry are prominently featured in this fun story of two single roommates (Wilson and Lynn) and their strange assortment of friends and neighbors.   

9/22  DEAD END (1937)  Director: William Wyler.  Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Sylvia Sidney, Joel McCrae, Wendy Hiller, Claire Trevor, Marjorie Main, Allen Jenkins, Ward Bond, the Dead End Kids.  The powerful film version of Sidney Kingsley’s famous play of slum life in NYC, with tenement dwellers interacting with the wealthy tenants of an adjacent luxury high-rise apartment building.  Excellent writing and acting in this classic drama.  

9/29  CRIME OF THE CENTURY  (1933)  Director: William Beaudine.  Cast:  Jean Hersholt, Stuart Erwin, Frances Dee, Robert Elliott, Wynne Gibson, David Landau. A doctor (Hersholt) conducts an experiment in which he hypnotizes his subject to rob a bank, but things do not go as planned.   An unusual and well-done mystery with some very interesting touches.   

10/6  EVERY NIGHT AT EIGHT (1935)  Director: Raoul Walsh.  Cast:  George Raft, Alice Faye, Frances Langford, Patsy Kelly, Walter Catlett, Herman Bing, Harry Barris.  Alice, Frances and Patsy are a singing trio hired by Raft to sing with his band in this fine musical that introduced the hits “I Feel a Song Comin’ On” and “I’m In the Mood For Love”.    

10/13   THE WESTERNER  (1940)  Director: William Wyler.  Cast:  Gary Cooper, Walter Brennan, Doris Davenport, Forrest Tucker, Dana Andrews, Chill Wills, Tom Tyler, Lillian Bond.  An exciting tale of land disputes in the Old West, featuring Walter Brennan’s Oscar-winning performance as Judge Roy Bean.     

10/20  THE MERRY MONAHANS (1944)  Director:  Charles Lamont.  Cast:  Donald O’Connor, Peggy Ryan, Jack Oakie, Ann Blyth, Rosemary DeCamp.  The musical story of the Monahans, a family of song-and-dance vaudeville performers.  A touching film that’s filled with familiar tunes….a real treat!   

10/27  THE BLACK ROOM (1935)  Director: Roy William Neal.  Cast: Boris Karloff, Marian Marsh, Robert Allen, Katherine DeMille, Thurston Hall.  This Gothic horror/mystery presents Karloff in a dual role as twin brothers…one good, one evil.  An ancient curse adds to the dark fun for our Halloween show.  PLUS:  Added comedy short:  THE LIVE GHOST (1934) with Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.  Laurel & Hardy find themselves on a haunted ghost ship.   

11/3   OUTCAST (1937)  Director:  Robert Florey.  Cast: Warren William, Lewis Stone, Karen Morley, Jackie Moran, Esther Dale.  Powerful drama about a doctor (William) who is acquitted of killing a patient.  The doctor relocates and sets up a practice in a small town, and all goes well until his past returns to cause trouble.  Excellent writing and performances make this a fine film not to be missed.   

11/10  BUCK PRIVATES (1941)  Director: Arthur Lubin.  Cast:  Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, the Andrews Sisters, Nat Pendleton, Lee Bowman, Jane Frazee, Alan Curtis, Shemp Howard.  Abbott & Costello’s first starring feature is a lively mix of classic A&C routines and hit musical numbers from the WWII era (“Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, “Apple Blossom Time” and others).   It’s Bud and Lou at their best!

11/17  SECRET OF THE BLUE ROOM (1933).  Director: Kurt Neumann.  Cast: Lionel Atwill, Gloria Stuart, Paul Lukas, Edward Arnold, Onslow Stevens, William Janney.  Atmospheric and suspenseful tale set in an eerie old castle, where a young woman’s three suitors are challenged to spend the night in a room where several people have mysteriously vanished.  A classic “old dark house” film from Universal.  

11/24  AND THE ANGELS SING (1944).  Director: George Marshall.  Cast:  Dorothy Lamour, Fred MacMurray, Betty Hutton, Diana Lynn, Eddie Foy, Jr., Raymond Walburn, Mimi Chandler.  An entertaining musical-comedy about four musically talented sisters (Lamour, Hutton, Lynn and Chandler) who get mixed up with a scheming (but lovable) bandleader (MacMurray).  The lively cast offers a great time that’s both funny and tuneful.    

12/1  LOVE THY NEIGHBOR (1940).  Director: Mark Sandrich.  Cast:  Jack Benny, Fred Allen, Mary Martin, Eddie “Rochester” Anderson, Verree Teasdale, Theresa Harris, Virginia Dale, the Merry Macs.  For our season finale, we present Paramount’s big holiday release of 1940.  Two feuding radio comedians (Benny and Allen) battle it out from New York City to Florida.  Plenty of great comedy, and Mary Martin sings her signature hit, “My Heart Belongs To Daddy”.
