A fireman's son goes into politics.

DirCharles F. Riesner CastEd Wynn , Charles "Chic" Sale , Dorothy Mackaill .

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Charles Riesner. Ed Wynn, Charles ``Chic'' Sale, Dorothy Mackaill, William ``Stage'' Boyd, Effie Ellsler, C. Henry Gordon, Mickey Rooney, George Givot, Nat Pendleton. Designed to cash in on Wynn's radio popularity, this clumsy film has a script problem: no one bothered to write one! After getting Ed involved in a kidnapping plot, and some innocuous love interest, it winds up at Wynn's radio show, where he describes the plot to announcer Graham McNamee... and it ends. Not a moment too soon.

DirWilliam Clemens CastPatricia Ellis , Mickey Rooney , Dennis Moore .

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: William Clemens. Mickey Rooney, Dennis Moore, Patricia Ellis, Willie Best, Gordon Hart, Gordon (William) Elliott, Virginia Brissac. Rooney plays a wayward jockey who is taken in by a wealthy couple and given a chance to redeem himself by winning the big race. Naturally, racketeers have other ideas. Formula horse-racing yarn made watchable by the always energetic Rooney and some well-staged racing scenes.

A small-town boy returns to college after the war only to find his sweetheart engaged to another.

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Willis Goldbeck. Mickey Rooney, Lewis Stone, Sara Haden, Bonita Granville, Fay Holden, Lina Romay, Dorothy Ford, Addison Richards, Hal Hackett. Andy (played by a 26-year-old Rooney) returns to college after serving in WW2 to find that his sweetheart is engaged to someone else. The naive Hardy sentimentality was out of tune with the postwar mood and the series came to a close after this (although a reunion film was made 12 years later).

CLOSE LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Elia Kazan. Gregory Peck, Dorothy McGuire, John Garfield, Celeste Holm, Anne Revere, June Havoc, Albert Dekker, Jane Wyatt, Dean Stockwell, Sam Jaffe. Sincere Oscar-winning adaptation of Laura Z. Hobson's novel of writer (Peck) pretending to be Jewish, discovering rampant anti-Semitism. Holm won Supporting Actress Oscar as chic but lonely fashion editor, as did Kazan for his direction. Then-daring approach to subject matter is tame now. Screenplay by Moss Hart.
