CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Archie Mayo. Warren William, Genevieve Tobin, Patricia Ellis, Lyle Talbot, Allen Jenkins, Barton MacLane. Stylish Perry Mason whodunit centering on the murder of a sleazy beauty contest promoter. A dose of humor is added by having bon vivant Perry struggling to stay on the wagon.

D: Mervyn LeRoy. Marion Davies, Pat O'Brien, Dick Powell, Mary Astor, Frank McHugh, Lyle Talbot, Patsy Kelly, Allen Jenkins, Barton MacLane. Fine cast overshadows Davies in this amiable spoof of publicity stunts, with con man O'Brien winning beauty contest with composite photograph of nonexistent girl.

D: Ray Enright. Dick Powell, Doris Weston, Lee Dixon, Hugh Herbert, Jane Darwell, Allen Jenkins, Larry Adler, Veda Ann Borg, Jane Wyman. Title tells all in this slight but pleasant musical about painfully shy Marine Powell becoming a singing sensation, with resulting rivalries and complications.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Potter. Edward G Robinson, Ruth Hussey, Gene Lockhart, Bobs Watson, Guinn Williams, John Wray, Arthur Hohl. Well-respected Robinson, an expert at putting out oil fires, has a secret past: he escaped from jail after being falsely convicted of robbery. Slimy Lockhart shows up and threatens blackmail. Taut, clever drama-thriller, marred only by a pat finale.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Edward Buzzell. Robert Young, Ruth Hussey, Felix Bressart, Lee Bowman, Sam Levene, Sheldon Leonard. Needing cash to pay off a gambling debt to a gangster (who else but Sheldon Leonard?), Young finds a manuscript of a bachelor's guide to marriage and pretends to be the author, which brings him fame and fortune. Unfortunately, he's married, and wife Hussey is understandably miffed. Pleasant comic fluff, written by Dore Schary.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Edward Dmytryk. Ginger Rogers, Robert Ryan, Ruth Hussey, Patricia Collinge, Mady Christians, Kim Hunter, Jane Darwell. Rogers and friends live communally while their men are out fighting the war, a situation that caused this Dmytryk Dalton Trumbo collaboration to be labeled as Communist propaganda by HUAC in later years. Some unbearable--and ironically, pro- American--speechifying, but occasionally fascinating as social history.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Carol Reed. Orson Welles, Joseph Cotten, (Alida) Valli, Trevor Howard, Bernard Lee, Wilfrid Hyde-White. Graham Greene's account of mysterious Harry Lime (Welles) in post-WW2 Vienna is a bona fide classic, with pulp-writer Cotten on a manhunt for Harry. Anton Karas' zither rendition of "The Third Man Theme'' adds just the right touch; cinematographer Robert Krasker won an Oscar. Note: there are two versions of this film. The British version features introductory narration by director Reed; the American print is narrated by Cotten, and runs 93m. Little of substance was actually cut, but the film was tightened somewhat by coproducer David O. Selznick.

D: Irving Pichel. Claudette Colbert, Orson Welles, George Brent, Lucile Watson, Richard Long, Natalie Wood. Weepy rehash of Enoch Arden, with Welles as man listed dead in WW1 returning decades later with new face to find wife Colbert remarried to Brent. Bravura work by Welles with good support by Wood as his adopted daughter.

D: Fred Zinnemann. Van Heflin, Robert Ryan, Janet Leigh, Mary Astor, Phyllis Thaxter, Berry Kroeger, Taylor Holmes. Stark, well-acted drama, with crippled, embittered Ryan stalking former senior officer Heflin, who betrayed his men while a POW. Fine vignette by Astor as a sympathetic call girl.
