The scandal magazine The Naked Truth has currently only one goal: to get a picture of the famous singer Gloria del Castro. Everyone knows their records, but no one's face and their manager Spadolini guard their secret: del Castro is in fact Yvette de Motestant, wife of the acting Minister of the Family, who should know nothing of their singing successes. However, when Yvette learns that her husband is a stranger, she files for divorce and wants to present herself to the public. Overjoyed, Spadolini signs a highly-endowed contract with the Berlin-based Scala - shortly thereafter the family peace is restored to the Motestant family and Yvette refuses to enter the stage. A replacement comes from Paris Variety in artist Caterina. Only Caterina does not know that she is booked as Gloria.
Since nobody knows the real face of Gloria del Castro, Caterina will be received as a star on the Scala. Since she also knows how to dance very well, the young director Robert Mertens is thrilled by her. Caterina happens to find out that everyone considers her to be Gloria del Castro and wants to stop her engagement immediately because she is not an impostor. Only the good persuasion Spadolinis leaves her in Berlin.
The rehearsals for the big show follow. Caterina and Robert fall in love. When Caterina's brothers Silvio and Nico come to Berlin unable to find Caterina's name in the show announcements and now believe Spadolini has tricked her sister, Robert sees Caterina with one of her brothers. Another drives her to work the next day, and when a newspaper also reports that Gloria del Castro is in fact married to the family minister, Robert believes he has finally been cheated. He treats Caterina badly at the rehearsal, so that she finally leaves with her brothers shortly before the premiere of her show and acts as a trio in small clubs. Spadolini, his lover Trudchen and Robert, manage to locate the trio currently performing a clown act on stage. Robert recognizes Caterina and pretends to consider her a man. He tells her about his love for Caterina and the groundless jealousy and hires the "Clown Trio" to replace the outrageous star Gloria del Castro.
Caterina comes to the show because she knows that Robert loves her. He in turn wants to force them to reveal their true identity, which he has learned from Spadolini and Trudchen, and lays the clown's appearance right before their appearance as Gloria del Castro. Caterina manages to make both appearances by using the stage-loving Trudchen as a double . In her role as Gloria del Castro, she finally opens her true identity to the audience, in which Yvette and Pierre de Motestant also sit. The audience accepts her as Caterina Duval and Robert also tells her that he has long known about her identity and loves her without a famous name.

Kwaidan (1964)

Stars: Rentarô Mikuni, Michiyo Aratama, Misako Watanabe

Kwaidan is an impressively mounted anthology horror film based on four stories by Lafcadio Hearn, a Greek-born writer who began his career in the United States at the age of 19 and moved permanently to Japan in 1890 at the age of 40, where he eventually became a subject of the empire and took on the name Koizumi Yakuno. Hearn became a conduit of Japanese culture to western audiences, publishing journalism and then fiction incorporating traditional Japanese themes and characters. "Black Hair," the first tale, concerns a samurai who cannot support his wife; he leaves her for a life of wealth and ease with a princess. Returning years later, he spends the night with his wife in their now-dilapidated house, only to awake to a horrifying discovery which drives him insane. In "The Woman of the Snow" (deleted from U.S. theatrical prints after the film's Los Angeles opening; it is on the DVD version), two woodcutters seek refuge during a snowstorm in what appears to be an abandoned hut. A snow witch appears and kills one of them but lets his partner free. Years later, the survivor meets and married a lovely young woman, only to learn her true identity. The most visually impressive tale is "Hoichi the Earless," in which a blind musician is asked by the ghost of a samurai to play for his late infant lord at a tomb. The monks who house the musician cover him with tattoos to prevent any harm coming to him, but they forget his ears. He returns from the engagement with his ears cut off; however, his misadventure propels him to fame. "In a Cup of Tea" concerns a samurai who is haunted by the vision of a man he sees reflected in his tea. Even after he drinks from the cup, he still sees the man while on guard duty.

Hundreds of years in the future, a derelict spaceship - controlled and powered by a human brain - floats aimlessly in the outer reaches of space. Trapped in the cold metal prison of the vessel, the brain begins to experience disjointed images of its former life - images it cannot understand.

Maybe then it will feel alive.

Stars: Catherine Dale Owen, John Holland, Robert Gleckler

Assigned by the police commissioner to catch a notorious gangster, a young police captain discovers that his adversary is a former friend in this low-budget crime drama from Syndicate Film Exchanges. The gangster, Joe Velet (Robert Gleckler), is arrested for possession of a firearm and is revealed to be Phil Terry, a former sergeant with the Riffs in North Africa and the best friend of Police Captain Bill Houston (John Holland). Velet/Terry admits to having become a hoodlum because crime, as he puts it, "pays more than cigarette money." About to be extradited back east to stand trial for several killings, Velet is rescued by a couple of his henchmen masquerading as law officers. At liberty, he challenges Bill to a final confrontation at the Silver Slipper Club, which the gangsters are about to raid. Rival hoodlum Taroni (Paul Panzer), whose girlfriend (Mae Busch) is a police informer, is killed in the melee, but Velet manages to escape once again. In order to get even with Bill, the gang boss kidnaps his adversary's girlfriend, the police commissioner's daughter, Alice (Catherine Dale Owen), and the distraught commissioner (Edmund Breese) orders Bill off the case. Happily, our hero discovers Velet's hideout and Alice is rescued during the ensuing shootout.

Sergeant York (1941)

Stars: Gary Cooper, Walter Brennan, Joan Leslie

When World War I hero Alvin York agreed to sell the movie rights to his life story to Warner Bros., it was on three conditions: (1) That the film contains no phony heroics, (2) that Mrs.York not be played by a Hollywood "glamour girl" and (3) That Gary Cooper portray York on screen. All three conditions were met, and the result is one of the finest and most inspirational biographies ever committed to celluloid. When the audience first meets young farmer Alvin York (Cooper), he's the cussin'est, hell-raisin'est critter in the entire Tennessee Valley. All of this changes when York is struck by lighting during a late-night rainstorm. Chalking up the bolt from the blue as a message from God, York does a complete about-face and finds Religion, much to the delight of local preacher Rosier Pile (Walter Brennan). Despite plenty of provocation, York vows never to get angry at anyone ever again, determining to be a good husband and provider for his sweetheart Gracie Williams (Joan Leslie). When America goes to war in 1917, York elects not to answer the call when drafted, declaring himself a conscientious objector. Forced to go to boot camp, he proves himself a born leader, yet still he balks at the thought of killing anyone. York's understanding commanding officer Major Buxton (Stanley Ridges) slowly convinces the young pacifist that violence is sometimes the only way to defend Democracy. Later on, while serving with the AEF in the Argonne Forest, Sergeant York sees several of his buddies, including his Bronxite best pal Pusher Ross (George Tobias), killed in an enemy ambush. His anger aroused, York personally kills 25 German soldiers, then single-handedly captures 132 prisoners. As a result, York becomes the most decorated hero of WW1, celebrated by no less than General John J. Pershing as "the greatest civilian soldier" of the war. The film won Gary Cooper his first Academy Award, and also picked up an Oscar for Best Film Editing. Not surprisingly, it ended up as the highest-grossing film of 1941.
