Directed by Joseph Santley

Print: black/white

Future Universal contractees Robert Paige and Grace MacDonald (in her film debut) star in the Paramount mini-musical Dancing on a Dime. The story concerns an entertainment troupe financed by the government's Work Projects Administration. When the WPA drops its funding, the young performers despair until they come across an abandoned roll of money. Unaware that the cash is counterfeit, the kids use this windfall to finance their upcoming show, but the Feds catch up with them on opening night. Will a last-minute miracle permit the film to end on a happy note? The Frank Loesser-Burton Lane songs included one bonafide hit, "I Hear Music".

Directed by George Marshall

Print: color
Runtime: 95 min.

In the old West, a small frontier town is being controlled by ruthless mob
boss Decker (Lyle Bettger) and his cronies. After the local sheriff dies
under mysterious circumstances, Decker arranges to have the town
drunk (Thomas Mitchell) appointed sheriff, thinking he will be ineffectual.
But the new sheriff sends for Tom Destry, son of a famous two-fisted
lawman, to be his deputy. When Tom (Audie Murphy) arrives, he isn't
exactly the swaggering he-man the sheriff had in mind. In fact, Destry
doesn't even carry a gun. But the new deputy's mild exterior masks a
fierce determination to see justice done, as Decker and the other locals
soon discover.

Poor Little Peppina (1916) DVD-R

Description :

Starring Mary Pickford, Eugene O'Brien, Antonio Maiori, Ernest Torti, Edwin Mordant
Directed by Sidney Olcott

Print: black/white
Runtime: N/A
Genre: drama

In her longest film to date -- 6 reels -- Mary Pickford starred in this well-made drama as an American girl, kidnapped as a baby and raised in Italy by a peasant family. She refuses to marry the husband chosen for her and stows away on a boat to America dressed as a boy. In New York, she falls in with a crowd of Italian gangsters -- the very same gang that had once kidnapped her -- and is caught passing counterfeit bills. In love with the girl, the district attorney (Eugene O'Brien) forces the truth out of the kidnappers, and Peppina is reunited with her American parents. Filmed almost cinema verité in the streets of New York, Poor Little Peppina was the first production in which Pickford had a financial interest beyond her ever skyrocketing salary. It was a major success despite the star's antipathy toward director Sidney Olcott. "We got through Poor Little Peppina all right, but only because I bit my lip and did as I was told," she later stated. "But I resolved I would never again work with Olcott." The film's most talked about scene came early on in the story when Jack Pickford, playing Mary's foster brother, cuts her (fake) curls in order for her to believably impersonate a boy. Pickford's much ballyhooed tresses almost took on a life of their own, and audiences were audibly shocked when Jack appeared to go at them with a vengeance.

Argentine Nights (1940) DVD-R

Starring The Ritz Brothers, The Andrews Sisters, Constance Moore,
George Reeves, Peggy Moran, Anne Nagel, Paul Porcasi
Directed by Albert S. Rogell

Print: black/white
Runtime: 75 min.
Genre: musical
Print Quality: B

The Andrews Sisters made their screen debut in Argentine Nights, but the
stars of the show are the Ritz Brothers, in the first of their four Universal
vehicles. The wafer-thin plotline finds the Ritz boys showing up flat broke
in Argentina with an all-girl band. Despite their utter lack of funds, the
zany trio tries to save a local hotel from the clutches of a con man.
Highlights include the Ritz Brothers' famous "hero sandwich" routine
(repeated by the two surviving brothers in 1975's Blazing Stewardesses)
and a perversely hilarious climax in which the Ritzes are called upon to
impersonate the Andrews Sisters (which may have given rise to Patty
Andrews' oft-quoted observation "We looked like the Ritz Brothers in
drag"). As a bonus for fans of the Superman TV series, nominal romantic
lead George Reeves warbles the deathless tune "Amigo We Go Riding
Tonight".

Every Night at Eight (1935) DVD-R

Starring George Raft, Alice Faye, Frances Langford, Patsy Kelly, Henry
Taylor
Directed by Raoul Walsh

Print: black/white
Runtime: 80 min.
Genre: musical
Print Quality: B

Alice Faye, Frances Langford, and Patsy Kelly play three humble factory
workers (with a Hollywoodized wardrobe beyond the budget of any
genuine factory girl) who occasionally sing together for the fun of it. They
harbor dreams of becoming famous, but the prospect isn't likely until
bandleader George Raft hears the girls harmonizing. He promotes the
girls into top radio stars, while each of the girls entertains romantic
thoughts about Raft. Since Alice Faye was top-billed, it is she who wins
Raft at the end. The likable but unimportant Every Night at Eight sparked a
minor controversy in the rarefied world of 1960s film criticism. 'Auteur'
theorist Andrew Sarris pointed out a brief scene in which star George
Raft awakens from a nightmare, cited other such scenes in the work of
director Raoul Walsh, and used this 'evidence' to support his theory that
Walsh was a true auteur who left his 'signature' on each of his films.
Anti-auterist Pauline Kael spoke for many when she advised Sarris to go
fly a kite.

Zorro (1957-1959 TV series)(11 disc set, complete series) DVD-R

3 seasons/82 episodes + the 4 hour-long specials!

For most of its brief run, Zorro's episodes were part of continuing story arcs, each about thirteen episodes long, which made it almost like a serial. The first of these chronicles the arrival of Zorro / Diego and his battle of wits with the greedy and cruel local Commandante, Captain Enrique Sánchez Monasterio.

Season two opens with Diego in Monterey, the colonial capital, where privately collected money to bring a supply ship to California is consistently diverted to a gang of bandits. Other storylines late in the series involve Diego's never-do-well uncle (Cesar Romero), a plot against the governor of California, an encounter with an American "mountain man" (Jeff York, reprising a role from The Saga of Andy Burnett), and outwitting a greedy emissary from Spain.
