The only colour film Bela Lugosi starred in. He also had an uncredited minor role in another colour film, of which only black and white copies survive. The film starts with a woman lying on a mortuary slab awaiting her autopsy, and she then narrates how she got there. You can find more information regarding this film on its IMDb page .

Psychadelic at times, this unusual and memorable movie version of Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher" has some creative details, and although it is one of the more obscure versions of the story, it offers a distinctive look at a couple of its many interesting aspects. The style is deliberately murky, and it has not so much as an inter-title, so that you do need to know at least the basic plot in order to understand what is happening. Check out the Jean Epstein version, too (also...

The only PD episode of Burke's Law. Episode Title: "Who Killed Jason Shaw" S1 E15 This show was originally set to air on 22 November 1963. It was pushed back by the network's coverage of John F Kennedy's assassination. This film is in the public domain because its copyright was not renewed in 1991, which was the necessary time for any film with a date in notice of 1963.

Released as an educational film no doubt to get around the Hays Code , this is really a sleazy exploitation film . It has some of the worst acting you'll ever see. Here's the plot from IMDb : A happily married couple has been trying to have a baby with no luck. They discover that the husband is sterile. Their family doctor suggests that they think about artificial insemination, which at the time was considered a scandalous choice. Stars: Dorothy Duke, William Thomason, and Timothy Farrell

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0032416/ Young Dr. Kildare (Lew Ayres) is still being trained at General Hospital by old, crusty Dr. Gillespie (Lionel Barrymore). This time, he tries to rehabilitate Gregory Lane, a brain surgeon depressed over losing too many patients (and incidentally Kildare's romantic rival for nurse Mary Lamont). Lane's losing streak takes a new turn when one of his patients survives...but seems to be insane. Or is the man's strange obsession with Friday the clue to a mystery?...

This is the only episode of the series that has entered the public domain. It features all of the hallmarks that made the original 1950s Superman series so memorable.

Fed up with the cons and piracy of Wall Street, he goes into business for himself, highjacking rumrunners' ships bound to Prohibition America. Delightful film with lots of plot twists and turns. Director Roland West's last film, after which he planned to spend the rest of his life with the soon-to-be-murdered Todd.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039365/ The rise and rise of the Fabulous Dorsey brothers is charted in this delightful whymsical step down memory lane. Lots of fun watching Hollywood's more than creative version of their careers. one of only about three or four films ("I Dood It", "The Fleet's In") with the great Bob Eberle, a truly class act who never minded that his paperboy spent his tip money on Roy Orbison and Paul Anka records.
