The Brigand (1952)
Starring Anthony Dexter and Jody Lawrance

Beautiful color print and will play in all DVD players.
After Columbia's 1951 biopic Valentino laid an egg, leading man Anthony Dexter was persona non grata at the studio. Still, Columbia couldn't very well pay Dexter his weekly salary for doing nothing, and that's why The Brigand was born. Dexter does his best in the dual role of King Lorenzo, monarch of a mythical Latino country, and adventurer Carlos DeLargo. When Lorenzo is seriously wounded in an assassination attempt, DeLargo is coerced into posing as the ailing King. Scheming would-be usurper Prince Ramon (Anthony Quinn), sensing that something's fishy, plots to do in both the King and his look-alike. Meanwhile, DeLargo discovers the fringe benefits of royal life as he woos the King's betrothed Princess Teresa (Jody Lawrance) and Lorenzo's mistress Countess Flora (Gale Robbins). The story is supposedly based on an Alexandre Dumas novel, though it more closely resembles Prisoner of Zenda. It is fun to watch Anthony Quinn, clearly contemptuous of his role, pulling all sorts of thespic tricks to add variety to the proceedings: during one dungeon scene, Quinn delivers all his lines with a cigar clenched firmly between his teeth!
Director: Phil Karlson
Writers: George Bruce (story), Jesse Lasky Jr. (screenplay)

Stars: Anthony Dexter, Jody Lawrance, Gale Robbins, Anthony Quinn, Carl Benton Reid, Ron Randell
It is the second film that Anthony Dexter made for producer Edward Small for Columbia Pictures after his debut in Valentino.
Anthony Dexter is a delightful experience, and, in this movie, he played a dual role, so it is a real treat, and he acquitted himself quite well! His performance was quite good, and he also did some dancing, a la his role in "Valentino".
Order this rarely-seen and hard-to-find classic today for the low price of $5.99.
New Additions At Zeus:
100 Men And A Girl (1937)

Stars: Deanna Durbin, Adolphe Menjou, Alice Brady

The girl is teenaged singing sensation Deanna Durbin; the one hundred men are out-of-work musicians. Still in her "little miss fix-it" stage, Durbin connives to help the musicians crack the big time. The person Durbin is most concerned with is her father (Adolphe Menjou) the 100th and most underemployed of the bunch. The men organize their own orchestra; all they need is a prestigious leader. Enter legendary conductor Leopold Stokowski, who after several refusals to listen to Durbin's entreaties is captivated when he hears the sounds of Liszt's 2nd Hungarian Rhapsody, as played by 100 shabby instrumentalists camped out on the stairway of his house. This film literally saved Universal Studios from receivership in 1937, assuring Ms. Durbin a movie career until she was too rich to care.
Beauty And The Beast (2017)

Stars: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans

Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) directed this live-action retelling of the Disney animated classic from 1991. As before, this fairy tale centers on a young woman named Belle (Emma Watson), who is forced to live in an enchanted castle with a prince who is cursed to look like a hideous Beast (Dan Stevens). In time, the pair fall in love as Belle learns to see the good man hiding behind the Beast's monstrous exterior. The film co-stars Luke Evans as Gaston, Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Ian McKellen as Cosgworth, Kevin Kline as Belle's father, and Josh Gad as Gaston's sidekick LeFou.
Death On The Set (1935)

Stars: Henry Kendall, Garry Marsh, Wally Patch

Befitting its title, Death on the Set takes place in a British film studio (thereby saving on set-construction costs!). Little does anyone suspect that autocratic film director Cayley Morden (Henry Kendall) is in reality an American fugitive from justice. His secret is ultimately discovered by Morden's look-alike, Charlie Marsh (also Henry Kendall), who demands an exorbitant payment in exchange for his silence. Carefully arranging an alibi, Morden murders Marsh and for most of the proceedings manages to elude detection. Alas, in his efforts to cover his tracks, Morden is forced to commit a second murder, and that's when his web of deceit begins to unravel.
16 Fathoms Deep (1948)

Stars: Lloyd Bridges, Lon Chaney Jr., Arthur Lake

16 Fathoms Deep was a curious choice as the first effort from Arthur Lake Productions. Heretofore known best as Dagwood Bumstead in Columbia's Blondie series, Arthur Lake not only elected to produce this remake of the 1934 melodrama of the same name but also to play the film's comedy-relief character, a camera-crazy tourist named Pete. The story concerns a former Navy frogman who takes a job as a sponge fisherman in the Gulf of Mexico. The job proves more hazardous than expected, due to the dirty tactics perpetrated by a rival sponge dealer. Lloyd Bridges, still eight years away from TV's Sea Hunt, stars as the frogman-turned-fisherman, while Lon Chaney Jr., who played the hero in the 1934 version of 16 Fathoms Deep, is here cast as the villain. Filmed in Anscocolor, the 1948 16 Fathoms Deep paid its way, but wasn't successful enough to allow Arthur Lake to quit his day job as Dagwood.


Beauty And The Boss (1932)

Stars: Marian Marsh, David Manners, Warren William

The old reliable Paul Frank/Ladislaus Fodor stage play The Church Mouse was streamlined for the movies in the form of Beauty and the Boss. The "beauty" is fetching Marian Marsh, a stenographer in a staid Viennese financial institution. The "boss" is Warren William, a wealthy baron with a habit of dallying with pretty girls, then letting them down gently. But Marsh, who has a Cinderella complex, isn't about to be cast aside. The diffident Charles Butterworth injects a few genuine laughs into the pat and predictable proceedings.
