A Bill of Divorcement (1932)
Running Time: 76 mins Black & White
Starring: Harry Wagstaff Gribble
Katharine Hepburn made her auspicious film debut in the otherwise undistinguished A Bill of Divorcement. Based on a play by Clemence Dane, the film is set on the day that Hepburn's mother, Billie Burke, is to divorce her insane and long-institutionalized husband John Barrymore. But Barrymore escapes from the asylum and returns home, only vaguely aware of the passage of time (he was shell-shocked during WWI). His presence puts Burke in an uncomfortable spot, especially since she plans to wed Paul Cavanaugh. Pressured by her idiotically traditional family to renew her vows with her first husband, Burke is saved from a lifetime of misery by her spunky daughter Hepburn, who takes care of her child-like father. The film's attitude towards male-female relationships, not to mention its archaic approach to the problem of mental illness, make Bill of Divorcement a chore to sit through today. Its saving grace is the warm rapport between Katharine Hepburn and John Barrymore (contrary to Hollywood legend, they did not despise one another). Even given its dated quality, Bill of Divorcement is more palatable than its empty 1940 remake, which starred Maureen O'Hara and Adolphe Menjou.

Beachcomber (1938)
Running Time: 88 mins Black & White
Starring: Charles Laughton, Elsa Lanchester Robert Newton
Based on a story by Somerset Maugham, The Beachcomber was originally released in Great Britain as Vessel of Wrath. This English version was much franker--and much more fun--than the abbreviated, watered-down US release prints. Even the American version, however, is successful in capturing the spirit of Maugham's tale of slovenly remittance man Charles Laughton drinking and wenching away his monthly allowance in the picturesque Dutch Islands. Elsa Lanchester (the real-life Mrs. Laughton) plays the prim sister of sanctimonious missionary Tyrone Guthrie, who slowly regenerates the wastrelly Laughton. Our hero redeems himself fully through his courageous behavior during a cholera epidemic. This version of The Beachcomber is based on the stage adaptation by Bartlett Cormick; the 1955 remake, which played faster and looser with the Maugham original than the Cormack version did, starred Robert Newton, who plays the local British authority in the 1938 film. The Beachcomber was the only film directed by producer Erich Pommer, who spent most of the 1930s as Charles Laughton's business partner. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Bride For Henry (1937)
Running Time: 58 mins Black & White
Starring: Warren Hull, Anne Nagel, Henry Mollison
If the big-time studios could score in the "screwball comedy" genre, then small-time Monogram Pictures could join the club with A Bride for Henry. Warren Hull, fresh from a contract dispute with Warner Bros., played Henry, with fellow Warners refugee Anne Nagel as his bride. Henry Mollison, a newcomer from England, is the third spoke of the romantic triangle which motivates the story. The film slaps a new coat of paint on the old gag about a honeymoon continually being interrupted by a handsome ex-suitor. A Bride for Henry delivered plenty of laughs to a 1937 audience unaccustomed to seeing a comedy emerge from the action- and mystery-oriented Monogram studios.

Running Time: 68 mins Black & White
Starring: Bert Wheeler, Robert Woolsey, Dorothy Lee
After briefly splitting for a brace of unsuccessful solo ventures, the comedy team of Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey were reunited in one of their best vehicles, Caught Plastered. Bert and Bob are cast as itinerant vaudevillians Tommy and Egbert, who find themselves stranded in a small Midwestern town. Here they befriend Mrs. Talley (Lucy Beaumont), the sweet old proprietor of a near-bankrupt drugstore. To prevent slimy medicinal wholesaler Harry Waters (Jason Robards Sr.) from buying the store at a ridiculously low sum, the boys decide to help Mrs. Talley drum up business. They set up a soda fountain, novelties counter, book shop and even a radio station ("Y.M.I Broadcasting") in the store, and soon business is booming. But Waters, who secretly moonlights as a bootlegger, sabotages the enterprise by spiking the store's lemon syrup with booze. Things look bad when Tommy's sweetheart Peggy (Dorothy Lee) -- who happens to be the daughter of the police chief -- gets roaring drunk on the "syrup," but our heroes manage to save Mrs. Talley's store and expose Waters as a crook in one fell swoop. Though Caught Plastered has the usual quota of corny Wheeler-and-Woolsey repartee, it also has more "heart" than usual, especially the wonderful scene wherein the boys cheer up Mrs. Talley by performing their gloriously awful vaudeville act. The film re-established the team's box-office popularity, ending up as RKO Radio's biggest moneymaker of 1931.

Earthworm Tractors (1936)
Running Time: 63 mins Black & White
Starring: Joe E Brown
Joe E. Brown was an ideal choice for the character of Alexander Botts, the brash, arrogant "natural born salesman" created for The Saturday Evening Post by William Hazlett Upton. As a representative for the Earthworm Tractor company, Botts tries to convince old-fashioned lumberman Guy Kibbee to buy his newfangled products. Several disastrous slapstick sequences later (including an hilarious setpiece in which Botts unwittingly tows away Kibbee's entire house!), Botts closes the deal, winning the hand of Kibbee's daughter June Travis in the process. Despite the character's unremitting cockiness, Joe E. Brown manages to make Alexander Botts immensely likeable. Earthworm Tractors was the next-to-last film on Joe E. Brown's Warner Bros. contract, and (with rare exceptions like 1938's The Gladiator) his last truly worthwhile vehicle of the thirties.

Add the first question. User Reviews On Probation 29 March 2012 | by johnniedoo (United States) – See all my reviews The movie is a re release from2009 by Alpha video. It is not is good shape noisy is only a part of the problem. The film was chopped up and put back together with out much concern over the years, so what is left had some sizable gaps plus it appears to have been cut for television as well. It was work to watch this one but i am glad it was saved and worth the effort for Monty Blue fans. This was never any 9star movie even when first released but is a b movie or 2nd feature which would be better if cleaned up. I got this movie commercially and not sure if there are better copies available , however, i am not able to provide any review here unless i submit at least ten lines of copy. The movie is about a crooked lawyer, which is not really addressed at first, who somehow or other is able to become a guardian for a cute young blonde girl who got picked up for some pickpocketing arrest , as a minor and orphan. The crooked lawyer(Monte Blue) is not married and had some reputation issues at the time of the court hearing. If you can swallow this, the rest of the movie should flow along. next scent is the girl coming back from finishing school 6yrs later. There are large unexplained jumps in the story, as it was probably released, Other jumps may be cut, not sure. As i mentioned, it may be worth the time, particularly if a good copy exists. 2 of 4 people found this review helpful. Was this review helpful to you?

Picture Brides (1934)
Running Time: 66 mins Black & White
Starring: Dorothy Mackaill, Regis Toomey, Alan Hale
Although released as an "Allied Pictures Special," Picture Brides revealed its Poverty Row origins in almost all departments, including casting and choice of material. Waning silent star Dorothy Mackaill was top-billed as Mame, one of five mail-order brides arriving at Lottagrasso, a remote Brazilian gold mining community. The fifth girl, Mary Lee (Dorothy Libaire), is actually there about a job but knowing the reputation of the mining boss, Von Luden (Alan Hale), Mame supplies the girl with a picture of Dave Hart (Regis Toomey) and tells her to pretend to be a bride as well. Hart, meanwhile, is wanted in the States for embezzlement and rejects Mary. During a night of wanton revelry, Dave saves Mary in the nick of time from being ravished by the unscrupulous Von Luden. The villain attacks instead Mataeo (Mary Kornman), the half-breed daughter of the mining community's doctor (Harvey Clark), who is found dead in a nearby swamp the following morning. In front of a couple of American detectives, there to apprehend Dave, Mataeo's distraught father kills his daughter's murderer. Dave returns the money he had embezzled and begins to plan a new future with Mary. Although performing with her usual assurance, nominal leading lady Dorothy Mackaill was given very little to do by producer M.H. Hoffman, who was obviously more interested in promoting young Dorothy Libaire, the wife of stage and screen director Marion Gering. Libaire, unfortunately, did not live up to her billing and her screen career went nowhere. Esther Muir and the ever-popular Mae Busch did well with what little they were given and Alan Hale chewed up the scenery in a role most likely created for Jean Hersholt.

Three Penny Opera, The (1931)
Running Time: 107 mins Black & White
Starring: Lotte Lenya, Rudolf Forster, Carola Neher
Filmmaker G.W. Pabst's adaptation of Bertoldt Brecht and Kurt Weill's Threepenny Opera (Die Dreisgoschenoper) is every bit as good as the stage original, and sometimes even better. Filmed in both German and French versions with different casts (a planned English-language version was abandoned), Threepenny is most readily available today in its German incarnation. Rudolf Forster stars as robber captain MacHeath -- aka Mackie Messer, or Mack the Knife -- who falls in love with Polly (Carola Neher), daughter of beggar king Peachum (Fritz Rasp). Despising MacHeath, Peachum plots the thief's downfall with his best friend, corrupt police official Tiger Brown (Reinhold Schunzel). The satirical "happy ending" of the original -- MacHeath, en route to the gallows, suddenly and without motivation promoted to knighthood! -- is altered somewhat by Pabst and his scenarists to accommodate a swipe against Depression-era bankers. Lotte Lenya, Weill's wife, brilliantly repeats her stage role as Pirate Jenny. Stylistically, Threepenny Opera is a Georg Grosz drawing come to life; despite its 1890s London setting, the film's calculatedly tawdry veneer is clearly meant to represent the wide-open Berlin of the 1930s. For the record: the French version of Threepenny Opera starred Albert Prejean as MacHeath. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
