LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Alan Crosland. Warren William, Mary Astor, Helen Trenholme, Allen Jenkins, Grant Mitchell, Dorothy Tree. First of the Perry Mason series is probably the least interesting, centering on the case of feuding neighbors who both claim they're married to the same woman.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Michael Curtiz. Warren William, Margaret Lindsay, Donald Woods, Claire Dodd, Allen Jenkins, Wini Shaw. Shrill Perry Mason film takes offhanded approach to murder mystery with large doses of humor; Perry (William) is more interested in gourmet food than he is in the case! Errol Flynn has small role as the victim in his second Hollywood film.

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.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: William McGann. Ricardo Cortez, June Travis, Jane Bryan, Craig Reynolds, Harry Davenport. A trio of murders, a treasure hunt, and a shrieking feline are the ingredients of this enjoyable Perry Mason mystery, with Cortez quite adequate in his only crack at the role.

D: William Berke. Morgan Conway, Anne Jeffreys, Mike Mazurki, Jane Greer, Lyle Latell, Joseph Crehan, Tommy Noonan. Chester Gould's square-jawed detective sets out to nab Splitface (Mazurki), a vengeance-seeking killer. Originally titled DICK TRACY.

D: John Rawlins. Boris Karloff, Ralph Byrd, Anne Gwynne, Lyle Latell. Karloff is fun as Gruesome, who uses Dr. A. Tomic's experimental gas (which causes people to freeze in place) to commit daring bank robbery. Silly but watchable. Lex Barker has a bit role as ambulance driver.

A crime thriller based on a comic strip by Chester Gould, in which Dick Tracy battles The Claw. more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Billy Wilder. Jean Arthur, Marlene Dietrich, John Lund, Millard Mitchell, Peter Von Zerneck, Stanley Prager. Staid Arthur is sent to Berlin to investigate post-WW2 conditions, finds romance instead, with hot competition from Dietrich. Marlene sings ``Black Market,'' ``Ruins of Berlin,'' but Jean Arthur's Iowa State Song equally memorable in great Wilder comedy. Written by Charles Brackett, Billy Wilder, and Richard Breen.

Starring Jean Arthur and Marlene Dietrich, a FOREIGN AFFAIR is a cynical satire that mirrors the bewildering moral climate of the late 1940s. Phoebe Frost Arthur), an upright... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Ray Enright. Marlene Dietrich, Randolph Scott, John Wayne, Margaret Lindsay, Harry Carey, Richard Barthelmess. Retelling of famous Yukon tale has good cast but thuds out as average Western, with Dietrich as stereotyped saloon gal. Previously filmed in 1914, 1923, and 1930, then again in 1955.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: William Dieterle. Ronald Colman, Marlene Dietrich, Edward Arnold, Florence Bates, James Craig, Joy Ann Page, Harry Davenport. Colman tries a change of pace playing the "king of beggars,'' a wily magician whose daughter is wooed by the handsome young Caliph in this plot-heavy Arabian Nights- type tale. Passably entertaining but nothing special, despite opulent MGM production. Best of all is Dietrich, with tongue in cheek and body painted gold for one famous dance scene. Filmed before in 1920 and 1930; remade in 1955 after the Broadway musical version. Retitled ORIENTAL DREAM.

D: Raoul Walsh. Edward G. Robinson, Marlene Dietrich, George Raft, Alan Hale, Walter Catlett, Frank McHugh, Eve Arden. Lively, typical Warner Bros. film, with nightclub "hostess'' Dietrich coming between high-voltage power line workers Robinson and Raft. Scene in a diner is worth the price of admission.

Edward G. Robinson and George Raft square off as utility company workers tough enough to defy death and each other while working treacherous power lines. Marlene Dietrich plays an... more
