It's "Never the twain shall meet" time again, this time in London's Limehouse district. George Raft stars as Harry Young, a half-caste saloonkeeper who shelters beleaguered white girl Toni (Jean Parker) from her tormentors (shades of Broken Blossoms). Harry falls in love with the girl, but mixing of the races was still a Hollywood no-no in 1934, so tragedy results -- except for Toni, who finds happiness in the arms of Eric Benton (Kent Taylor), a man of "her own kind." The...

A wealthy man offers a million dollars to whoever captures Adolf Hitler dead or alive. A group of gangsters take him up on this offer and after hijacking a Canadian Air Force plane are dropped into Germany. Their delusions about Hitler being just another cheap crook are shattered when they discover that knocking off Hitler wouldn't necessarily bring about the end of the war and they must decide what's more important: lining their pocketbooks or letting the military do their job.

As well as one of the units with the highest casualty rates.

Ulmer (1904 – 1972) is best remembered for the movies The Black Cat (1934) and Detour (1945). These stylish and eccentric works have achieved cult status, but Ulmer's other films remain relatively unknown.

From IMDb; When the Germans march into Prague, armour-plating inventor Dr Bomasch flees to England. His daughter Anna escapes from arrest to join him, but the Gestapo manage to kidnap them both back to Berlin. As war looms, British secret service agent Gus Bennet follows disguised as a senior German army officer. His ploy is the not unpleasant one of pretending to woo Anna to the German cause. Stars: Margaret Lockwood, Rex Harrison and Paul Henreid

Four years before Czech director Gustav Machaty produced "Ecstasy" ["Ekstase"] [1933] [ http://www.archive.org/details/Ekstase1933 ], "Seduction" ["Erotikon"] hit the screens. IMDb reviewer ackstasis wrote... 'Erotikon (1929)' was released just as the arrival of "talkies" was stifling (at least temporarily) the artistry out of cinema, and it's one of the most lusciously-photographed films of its era. Czech director Gustav Machaty blends...

Indian cinema's first real blockbuster film. Released in 1943, the movie is therefore now out of copyright according to Indian and other international copyright laws. Kismet produced by Bombay Talkies and directed by Gyan Mukherjee has Ashok Kumar, Mumtaz Shanti and Shah Nawaz in lead roles. This film was the first successful Indian film with an anti-hero and also the first to feature a double role. It had music by Anil Biswas and lyrics by Kavi Pradeep.

Weird, funny, brutal, and twisted, three children of the Merrye family live under the care and protection of their chauffeur, Bruno, played by Lon Chaney, Jr. The "children" are afflicted with "Merrye" syndrome, a form of dementia caused by inbreeding. It's a "made for drive-in's" kind of movie, that will have you laughing and saying, "ooh, gross," at the same time. The music is perfectly tacky and well suited for this film.

`One of Our Aircraft is Missing' begins dramatically with the crash of an RAF Vickers Wellington bomber designated `B-For Bertie', and then flashes back to the events leading thereto. The viewer is introduced to the six members of crew, and learns that they had actually bailed out of their crippled aircraft prior to the crash, landing in Nazi-occupied Holland. The remainder of the story describes their escape back to Britain.

The Battle of Midway chronicles a significant moment in U.S. History, as have other Ford films like Young Mr. Lincoln (1939) and My Darling Clementine (1946), but the focus here is on ordinary Americans filmed at the time, not famous historical figures seen in retrospect. Although the use of a hand-held 16mm camera will strike some as uncharacteristic of Ford's style, there are many ÂFordian touches throughout the film. Ford weaves voiceover and music into the real footage of the battle,...
