Alice Faye, Don Ameche, Carmen Miranda

THAT NIGHT IN RIO

(1941)

    

 

 

That Night in Rio is one of the best musicals from 20th Century Fox, filmed in Techicolor.

 

Don Ameche considered this his favorite screen role and it was the sixth and final teaming of Ameche and Alice Faye.  

 

While the plot is totally implausible (often the case with classic studio musical), the film is loaded with wonderful music and packed with fun from the beautiful Alice Faye and the hilarious Carmen Miranda.

FORBIDDEN PLANET

(1956)

Also on the same program:
"FLASH GORDON" - Episode 5 - starring Buster Crabbe

    

 

Some say it’s the best science fiction film made during the golden age of sci-fi.

 

It captures the romance, the spirit, and the look of 50's pulp science fiction, even touching on relevant themes about advanced technology and the responsibilities that go with it.

 

Join us on this trip to planet Altair-5, and meet the most famous robot in history, “Robby the Robot.”

 

For true fans of the genre, this film is considered a masterpiece.

CHARLIE CHAN: THE JADE MASK

Charlie Chan is a fictional Chinese American detective best known for his tart sarcasm and his numerous sidekick sons who receive his fatherly advice but more often his disdain and criticism. 

 

There were over four dozen films starring Charlie Chan beginning in 1926. 

 

“The Jade Mask” stars Sidney Toler was the second non-Asian to play Chan. Toler was also a playwright and co-wrote and directed a play in 1921 starring Helen Hayes.

Deanna Durbin

100 Men and a Girl

(1937)

    

 

Nominated for best picture, this smartly written rags-to-riches film was a vehicle for Universal’s young superstar Deanna Durbin, who was more popular than both Shirley Temple and Judy Garland at this time. 

 

Only 16 years old, her singing voice was phenomenal. 

 

The filmmaking is top notch, and the soundtrack includes wonderful classical music. 

 

For anyone who has never seen a Deanna Durbin film, get ready for awonderfully entertaining film.

ANCHORS AWEIGH

(1937)   Frank Sinatra, Kathryn Grayson, Gene Kelly

    

 

This film is everything a musical comedy should be.

 

MGM was intent on making the most of its hot new properties, Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra. 

 

Anchors Aweigh set the pattern for a whole assembly line of MGM musicals to come, and one could almost say it established an art form.

 

Kelly did the choreography, and his first-ever “dream ballets”; two of them are on display here.
