Rainbow Island (1944)
Starring Dorothy Lamour and Eddie Bracken

Beautiful print and will play in all DVD players.
Rainbow Island is a lavish Technicolor confection designed to show off the physical attributes of star Dorothy Lamour. This time Lamour is a white girl raised as native on a tropical isle. Barry Sullivan, Eddie Bracken and Gil Lamb play merchant-marine sailors hiding from Japanese troops on Lamour's island. The storyline may have had dramatic inclinations, but these are forgotten amidst several seductive musical numbers and numerous shots of Dorothy swaying in her patented sarong. Perhaps aware that no one could have taken this film seriously, Ms. Lamour plays her role for laughs, and gets them. Rainbow Island was based on a story by silent screen star Seena Owen, the "Dorothy Lamour" of her time.

Dorothy Lamour was reluctant to play the lead. Paramount was going to use contract player Yvonne De Carlo instead but then Lamour changed her mind, and De Carlo was relegated to a bit player. "You might have seen Gil Lamb chasing me through the bushes in it," said De Carlo later.
The most exciting thing about this musical is the action! In one scene, while the pilots are trying to get off the isolated island on which they crashed, one is nearly swallowed by a flesh-eating plant that looked more like a giant artichoke. Cool! Then their ingenuity comes up as they capture a Japanese plane that landed there. To turn the "Zero" red ball of the Japanese flag into an Army Air Corps U.S. star, they use plant dyes to paint it on the wings. Unfortunately, as they fly near a U.S. flattop, a sudden tropical rain comes up and washes away the "star" pattern, leaving the original "Zero". The ship begins to fire at them!

Tom Brown's School Days (1916)

Stars: Joyce Templeton, Jack Coleman, Miss Marley

A squire's mischievous son becomes a boarder at Rugby.
Boys' Ranch (1946)

Stars: Jackie 'Butch' Jenkins, James Craig, Skip Homeier

Boys' Ranch was conceived as a showcase for MGM's newest juvenile star, Jackie "Butch" Jenkins. James Craig is billed second as baseball player Dan Walker, who sets up a Texas ranch for disadvantaged city kids. Jenkins plays Butch, the cutest and most precocious of the boys, while Skip Homeier is Skippy, an unregenerate juvenile delinquent who thinks that Walker's ranch is for "suckers". Eventually, Homeier is won over, but only after a series of intense dramatic complications. MGM had done variations of this story several times before, in such films as Boys Town and Lord Jeff, but audiences never seemed to tire of the formula. Boys Ranch was filmed on location at a real-life boys' ranch near Amarillo, Texas.

Braguino (2017)

The Lads Of The Village (1919)

Stars: Bernard Dudley, Maudie Dunham, Jimmy Learmonth

During the First World War, British soldiers Bert and Erb attempt to thwart an enemy agent on the streets of London, before sailing on a troop ship to Mesopotamia, where they join in the trench warfare against the Turks. Later they dress as harem girls to sneak into the Caliph's palace, where they use a magic show to trick their way to victory. They return to England and marry their beloveds, and Erb wins the Victoria Cross.
Brainstorm (1983)

Stars: Christopher Walken, Natalie Wood, Louise Fletcher

Natalie Wood made her last screen appearance in Brainstorm; in fact, she died before the film was completed, necessitating extensive rewrites. Wood's character is secondary to the one played by Christopher Walken. A research scientist, Walken has been experimenting with a revolutionary brain-reading device. This wondrous machine is able to read a person's thought processes and translate these to videotape. When Walken wants to study the brainwaves of his late partner Louise Fletcher, he finds himself seriously at odds with his superiors-not to mention several ominous-looking government types, headed by Cliff Robertson.

Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)

Stars: Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Anthony Hopkins

Based on Bram Stoker's classic 1897 novel, this film from Francis Ford Coppola and screenwriter James Victor Hart offers a full-blooded portrait of the immortal Transylvanian vampire. The major departure from Stoker is one of motivation as Count Dracula (Gary Oldman) is motivated more by romance than by bloodlust. He punctures the necks as a means of avenging the death of his wife in the 15th century, and when he comes to London, it is specifically to meet heroine Mina Harker (Winona Ryder), the living image of his late wife (Ryder plays a dual role, as do several of her costars). Anthony Hopkins is obsessed vampire hunter Van Helsing, while Keanu Reeves takes on the role of Jonathan Harker, and Tom Waits plays bug-eating Renfield. Bram Stoker's Dracula was the winner of three Academy Awards.

The Iron Glove (1954)

Robert Stack stars with Ursula Theiss (the wife of Robert Taylor) in the Columbia costumer The Iron Glove. Stack, an 18th century Scots adventurer, swashes and buckles on behalf of self-styled Prince James (Richard Stapley). Our hero insinuates himself into the court of King George I, the better to install the man known as "The Old Pretender" into the British throne. Supporting actor Alan Hale Jr. goes through many of the motions of his late father in support of Errol Flynn wannabe Stack. The Iron Glove puts the lie to the rumor (perpetuated by The Untouchables) that Robert Stack was constitutionally incapable of smiling.  Robert Stack, Ursula Thiess, Richard Wyler, Charles Irwin, Alan Hale Jr., Leslie Bradley 
James Garner
"I'm a Spencer Tracy-type actor. His idea was to be on time, know your words, hit your marks and tell the truth. Most every actor tries to make it something it isn't looks for the easy way out. I don't think acting is that difficult if you can put yourself aside and do what the writer wrote."

Edie Adams
(on falling in love with Ernie Kovacs) Here was this guy with the big moustache, the big cigar, and the silly hat. I thought, "I don't know what this is, but it's for me."

No matter what you do, you can act your heart out, but people will always say, "Oh, Julie Adams - Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)."

I dreamed all my life of being a movie star. Movies were my life. You had to have an escape when you were raised in a basement. I saw all the James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and John Garfield pictures. Odds against the world ... that was my meat.
