A renowned but impoverished writer with a romantic character divorces his loyal hardworking wife that supports him, and marries a metropolitan society woman who intends to keep up her life in the dance halls - and expects...

“Would not be allowed today” “Not so romantic” “There’s no fool like an old fool” (IMDB reviews quotes). An English girls boarding school comedy where most of the “girls” appear to be beyond voting age. However the comedy soon morphs into drama when one of the students seduces a middle-age teacher. Good cast and adequate production values. Petula doesn’t sing but she dances (uh sort of). Recommended for when your skydiving jump has been rained out. IMDB rating 6.2. Directed...

This second of two Colombia Thatcher Colt mysteries comes with a hefty dose of ‘30s racism. There is big trouble in a circus that has as one of its main attractions a large group of black cannibals.

(Wikipedia) A prolific innovator in the use of special effects, accidentally discovered the substitution stop trick, he was one of the first filmmakers to use multiple exposures, time-lapse photography, dissolves, and hand-painted color in his work. Because of his ability to seemingly manipulate and transform reality through cinematography,...

Life in and around a British bomber base from 1940 to early 1943. Excellent cast. Solid direction. Good production. This isn't a traditional war actioner. Rather it's a drama with romantic elements of how lives are impacted by war. Although highly regarded now, it flopped at its US opening, possibly because audiences were expecting a British actioner like "One of Our Aircraft is Missing" or "We Dive at Dawn." Directed by Anthony Asquith. Released in 1945. a.k.a. "Johnny...

“Chesterfield strikes with a real winner” “What a cute little movie!” (IMDB reviews quotes). Hip dialog and a clever screenplay combine to make this a highly entertaining seriocomic little quickie.
