Tiger Shark (1932)


 Starring Edward G. Robinson, Richard Arlen, Zita Johann, Leila Bennett, J. Carroll Naish
Directed by Howard Hawks

Print: Black/white
Runtime: 77 min.
Genre: Drama

Have you heard? Mike Mascarenhas (Edward G. Robinson), the blustery, socially awkward San Diego trawler captain with a hook for a left hand, is getting married. One problem: Mike's bride (Zita Johann) has eyes for Mike's crewman and friend (Richard Arlen). Tiger Shark's storyline of red-blooded workingmen in love with the same woman would surface again in Warner's Slim and Manpower. And before those three titles there was They Knew What They Wanted, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Sidney Howard play that reportedly provided a seed of inspiration for director Howard Hawks. Yet even more powerful than the durable tale of a love triangle are Tiger Shark's scenes of commercial fishing: the strikes, the reeling in, the dangers...the circling of voracious sharks.


Slim (Remastered Edition) (1937)

Starring Pat O'Brien, Henry Fonda, Stuart Erwin, Margaret Lindsay, J. Farrell MacDonald
Directed by Ray Enright

Print: Black/white
Runtime: 85 min.
Genre: Drama

"I never wanted to do nothin' as bad as I want to be a lineman!" To farm boy Slim Kincaid (Henry Fonda), daring death in the electric high wires looks like mighty heroic work. So he shakes the sod off his boots and joins a crew, where a tough lineman (Pat O'Brien) befriends the newcomer - including introducing him to his best girl (Margaret Lindsay). There's trouble ahead, on the job and in the heart, in this brawny, rough-and-tumble drama adapted from a popular book by William Wister Haines (Black Legion, Command Decision). The scenario lets Fonda do what he does best: manifest the strength and dignity of the common man. The denouement is sensational, with the two men climbing towers in a blinding blizzard to repair lines "as hot as an electric chair," knowing the slightest misstep means disaster.

Manpower (1941)

Starring Edward G. Robinson, Marlene Dietrich, George Raft, Alan Hale, Frank McHugh        
Directed by Raoul Walsh

Print: Black/white
Runtime: 103 min.
Genre: Drama

Iconic screen tough guys Edward G. Robinson and George Raft square off for hard-hitting drama, portraying utility company workers tough enough to defy death and each other while working power lines more treacherous than snakes. It will take some kind of woman to stand up to that much manpower. Luckily, screen goddess Marlene Dietrich is just that kind of woman. She plays an ex-con and nightclub floozy who marries one of the men - but falls hard for the other. With three great stars and plenty of breathtaking high-tower action under the taut, muscular direction of Raoul Walsh (White Heat, High Sierra), Manpower is "a cinematic depth charge" (Bosley Crowther, The New York Times).
