Heartwarming and inspiring, Son of the Navy is the dramatic tale of an orphaned boy with nothing in the world but his canine best friend. Things pick up for the little tike when he meets a hitchhiking sailor.

Expertly acted and produced with a feel for the genuine, Son of the Navy will brighten the day with its authentic life lessons about love and family.
A delightful forties family film, The Old Swimmin’ Hole sparkles with the cute smiles of adorable kids and the warm hearts of their parents. A widow, played superbly by the talented silent film star Leatrice Joy, is concerned that she won’t be able to send her brilliant son to medical school. A doctor, played by Charles D. Brown, can’t find love. Fortunately, this film isn’t about the adults! These two isolated adults are single parents for two outrageous and fantastic kids: Chris and Betty, who are adorably boyfriend and girlfriend. Chris and Betty plot to get their parents together and make everybody happy. Overflowing with classic American family values and touching moments of genuine emotion, The Old Swimmin’ Hole is a cool dip into nineteen forties culture, morals, and feelings.
Named the 5th Greatest Male Star of All Time by the American Film Institute, Fred Astaire had a career as a leading man that lasted decades. Astaire is one of the best dancers in the history of film, and unquestionably the most influential. Second Chorus is one of Astaire’s finest films, since he’s still very much in his prime. Also, it doesn’t hurt that the absolutely stunning Paulette Goddard is the leading lady. Because of their natural chemistry both romantically and in dance numbers, Astaire and Goddard light up the screen. Second Chorus overflows with dancing, love, glitz, and passion that is not to be missed.
This lady bakes cookies adjusts her lighting, tv, music and blinds from her kitchen.

This second East Side Kids feature has the Kids on a trip to a camp out in the country, where they stumble upon a judge and his ward, Louise, stranded on the road. The boys take pity on them despite the fact that the judge is the same man who wrongfully convicted Knuckles of a crime in the first film. They accompany the judge to his vacation mansion which turns out to be “haunted.” After the judge is murdered and his ward goes missing, the Boys try to find the real killer, since Knuckles has been fingered for the crime because he has the motive!
Frankie Darro plays a man who is a matchmaker and a pseudo-detective who wants to be a handwriting analyzer. When a group of spies sets up shop in his neighborhood, Frankie must use all his talents to save the day and get the girl.
Pine-Thomas Productions, the producers of Mr. Reckless, was a small filmmaking company that was able to produce classic and popular movies on shoestring budgets. They were so successful with so little that they were quickly snatched up by Paramount and made into an auxiliary studio, where their skill at creating entertaining films would continue. Here in Mr. Reckless, the streak continues with a fun and goofy daredevil adventure. Mr. Reckless is played by William Eythe, a hardworking oil digger whose girl gets stolen while he’s off on the job. When he returns home to find her with an older man, he decides to pull off a series of stunts at the oil field to win her back! Boisterously ridiculous, Mr. Reckless lives up to its name as Eythe tempts death in wonderfully creative scenes.
Bela Lugosi, the Michael Jordan of B-Movie acting, stars in Invisible Ghost. Lugosi hams it up on camera as the deranged Mr. Kessler whose dead wife’s ghost hypnotizes Lugosi into committing a string of vicious murders! In this hilariously cheap horror film, the creaky old house that Lugosi tromps through with various weapons is the perfect setting for multiple gratuitous slayings that somehow seem more abundant than actors in the movie. What makes Invisible Ghost particularly entertaining, however, is the artful direction from Joseph H. Lewis who utilizes clever camera placement and movement to render the film a cut above other classic cheap horror. Lugosi is, as always, irresistibly schmaltzy and his tortured facial expressions and antics steal the show.
Dr. Christian Meets the Women is an excellent entry in the amazingly popular Depression era Dr. Christian series. Dr. Christian is a good natured and clever town doctor played by Jean Hersholt. Hersholt first played Dr. Christian on the radio and his friendly Danish accent and humble manner was an enormous success. The character translated well onto the silver screen and six movies were made and well received. Eerily pertinent today, Dr. Christian Meets the Women involves a quack doctor who’s selling miracle diet pills. It’s up to our good doctor to rectify the damage done by the poor quality drugs. Dr. Christian Meets the Women is a fine film that’s wholesome and genuine.
That Boy Joe is a highly enjoyable film that attempts to confront preventing juvenile delinquency with judicial and religious instruction. Joe, a teenager who makes poor decisions, faces criminal charges after stealing cigarettes while intoxicated. In court, the judge condemns Joe’s actions and his parents’ neglect. Then things get interesting. The judge goes on a rant about the evils of alcohol and loose morals that would make anyone in conservatism history blush. The causes of juvenile delinquency are as ridiculous as not having enough Boy Scouts around! The conservative Christian morality is heaped on this poor young man. But in the end, That Boy Joe exemplifies many of the common attitudes about temperance and moderation techniques that were pervasive in the mid twentieth century.
