Wartime romance is always potent material for film, with the specter of sudden death making now intense and desperate. Today We Live is such a film. Set during World War I, it tells the story of a lovely English aristocrat whose heart belongs to a dashing American flyer...and to her childhood sweetheart, who cannot face war's terror without her love. Few films have so impressive a pedigree: the only screen pairing of movie icons Gary Cooper and Joan Crawford, direction by Howard Hawks (The Dawn Patrol, Air Force) and story and dialogue by 1949 Nobel Prize-winner William Faulkner. Highlighted by thrilling combat sequences, Today We Live is a haunting reminder of the sacrifices of body, mind and spirit made in time of war.

Before he hit his stride as a symbol of screen decency and likeability (notably in films opposite Greer Garson), Walter Pidgeon worked in numerous A films as second leads and as the occasional male lead in compelling B programmers like these two movies from 1939. As a Park Avenue Society Lawyer, Pidgeon pieces together details of a murder at an exclusive high-rise. Virginia Bruce teams with Pidgeon in this remake of the pre-Code Penthouse. Stronger Than Desire's tale of murder and matrimony has Pidgeon defending a woman accused of killing her husband - all the while unaware that his wife (Virginia Bruce) is involved in the crime. Court's in session with this remake of Evelyn Prentice.
