Shoot The Works (1934)
Starring Jack Oakie and Ben Bernie

Beautiful print and will play in all DVD players.
The Ben Hecht-Gene Fowler Broadway flop The Great Magoo formed the basis of the 1934 Paramount comedy Shoot the Works. Jack Oakie stars as seedy sideshow barker Nicky, who uses everyone he meets to get ahead. Nicky isn't even above exploiting his singing sweetheart Lily (Dorothy Dell) to suit his purposes, but this time it is he who ends up the loser -- at least until he gets wise to himself. Bandleader-comedian Ben Bernie and perennial second lead Arline Judge contribute a few laughs, but the hit of the show is gorgeous Dorothy Dell, who tragically died in a car crash just before this film was released. Shoot the Works was remade by Bob Hope as Some Like It Hot (1939).

Breed Of The West (1930)

Stars: Hal Taliaferro, Buzz Barton, Virginia Brown Faire

From Big 4 Film Corp., Breed of the West stars former silent cowboy Wally Wales, in his second talkie, as Wally Weldon, a young cowboy who encounters a lost youth searching for his father. Wally takes the boy, Jim Bradley (Buzz Barton), back to the ranch where the kid obtains the job of cook's helper. While performing his duties, Jim learns that his immediate boss (George Gerwing) and Longrope Wheeler (Robert Walker), the ranch foreman, are planning to rob their employer, Colonel Sterner (Lafe McKee). When Wally finds Jim wounded by one of Longrope's henchmen, the Colonel admits to his daughter, Betty (Virginia Brown Faire), that the child is her long-lost brother. There is a second attempt to rob Sterner but Wally forces the cook to confess and the evil Longrope is arrested by the sheriff (Hank Bell).
Bride By Mistake (1944)

Stars: Alan Marshal, Laraine Day, Marsha Hunt, Allyn Joslyn, Edgar Buchanan, Michael St. Angel, Slim Summerville, Eddie Acuff

Bride by Mistake is a remake of the 1934 Miriam Hopkins vehicle The Richest Girl in the World, with a wartime angle providing topicality. Tired of being romanced by fortune hunters and being rejected by poor-but-proud suitors, fabulously wealthy Norah (Laraine Day) decides to pose as her own secretary Sylvia (Marsha Hunt), and vice versa. The plot thickens when Norah falls in love with convalescing fighter pilot Tony (Alan Marshall)-while he in turn falls for the very married Sylvia. All sorts of manic complications ensue, with Sylvia's hapless husband (Allyn Joslin) the "odd man out". RKO Radio revived Richest Girl in the World for a third time in 1954 as the Jane Russell musical The French Line.

Bride For Sale (1949)

Stars: Claudette Colbert, Robert Young, George Brent, Max Baer, Gus Schilling, Charles Arnt

Bride for Sale is an old-fashioned romantic triangle brightened by the star power of Claudette Colbert, George Brent and Robert Young. In search of a "perfect" husband, Nora Shelly (Colbert) decides to comb through the tax records of several eligible males, and to that end takes a job at Paul Martin's (Brent) accounting firm. When Paul learns the real reason behind Nora's diligence, he decides to teach her a lesson. He convinces his wealthy friend Steve Adams (Young) to woo and win Nora, then leave her flat. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that Paul and Steve will both fall in love with Nora by reel seven. Produced independently by Jack H. Skirball's Crest Productions, Bride for Sale proved to be a moneyspinner for its distributor, RKO Radio.
Brides Are Like That (1936)

Stars: Ross Alexander, Anita Louise, Joseph Cawthorn

Ross Alexander, whom Warner Bros. was obviously grooming for big-time stardom, is cast as Bill McAllister, the ne'er-do-well nephew of wealthy apple merchant Fred Schultz (Joe Cawthorn). Cut off without a cent, Bill soon finds out who his real friends are and wins the hand of Hazel Robinson (Anita Louise), who isn't at all interested in money. Since the film is based on a 1925 stage comedy, it should come as no surprise that our hero makes good and strikes it rich sometime during the third act. Alas, the promising career of Ross Alexander was cut tragically short by his suicide at the age of 29.
Brideshead Revisited (1981)

Stars: Jeremy Irons, Diana Quick, Roger Milner, Phoebe Nicholls, Simon Jones, Anthony Andrews, Charles Keating, Claire Bloom, John Gielgud

Evelyn Waugh's 1945 novel Brideshead Revisited was offered to television viewers in this 11-part adaptation that originally aired on the U.K.'s ITV network. The miniseries, like the book, lays bare the eccentricities of the young British aristocracy, concentrating upon several Oxford students. The story is told from the point-of-view of Charles Ryder (Jeremy Irons), who is sucked into decadence by the "magically beautiful" Sebastian Flyte (Anthony Andrews). Flyte is the son of Lord Marchmain (Laurence Olivier), master of Brideshead Castle, where most of the story (covering the years 1924 through 1944) takes place. Brideshead Revisited was brought to America on PBS' Great Performances series, beginning its run on January 18, 1982.

Bridget Jones's Baby (2016)

Stars: Renée Zellweger, Gemma Jones, Jim Broadbent, Sally Phillips, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Shirley Henderson, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey, Ed Sheeran, Emma Thompson

Bridget Jones, now a fortysomething news producer, discovers that she's pregnant. However, she isn't sure if the baby's father is Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), her on-and-off boyfriend, or Jack Qwant (Patrick Dempsey), her new American love interest. Sharon Maguire, who directed 2001's Bridget Jones's Diary, returns to helm this sequel.

Rogues' Regiment (1948)

Even when decked out in a Foreign Legion uniform, Dick Powell looked, talked and acted like an urban private eye. In Rogues' Regiment, American secret agent Whit Corbett (Dick Powell) joins the Legion in order to track down Nazi war criminal Carl Reicher (Stephen McNally) in French Indo-China. Hampering his search is a native uprising which consumes most of the film's running time. Vincent Price contributes an amusingly despicable supporting role as Mark Van Ratten, an erudite art collector who sidelines in gunrunning. Though Dick Powell doesn't get to sing (not that he really wanted to!), leading-lady Marta Toren offers two sultry nightclub numbers.

Max Ophüls was hoping to direct the film but was passed over in favour of Robert Florey. The film was first announced in November 1947 with writer-producer Robert Buckner saying he was inspired by stories of former Nazis enlisting in the French Foreign Legion. In particular he researched the disappearance of Martin Bormann. Edmond O'Brien was originally announced as star. It was made shortly after the production of another film about the French Foreign Legion, Outpost in Morocco. Burt Lancaster was sought for a supporting part. In March 1948 it was announced Universal signed Dick Powell to play the lead. Edmond O'Brien dropped out of the film to make a movie with Deanna Durbin. It was meant to be the 60th film directed by Robert Florey at Universal.  Dick Powell, Märta Torén, Vincent Price, Stephen McNally, Edgar Barrier, Carol Thurston, Philip Ahn

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."
