Bend of the River / Far Country
(1952 Anthony Mann FS)

The second of director Anthony Mann's trendsetting "psychological" Westerns that starred James Stewart. Once a vicious Missouri bushwhacker, Stewart now leads a wagon train through Indian raids and hijackings to the new boom town of Portland, Oregon, where he becomes embroiled in the conflict between wealthy miners and farmers. Co-stars Arthur Kennedy, Julie Adams, Rock Hudson and Lori Nelson.

(1955 Anthony Mann FS)

Jimmy Stewart and director Anthony Mann team up once again on this Western with a Yukon setting. Stewart drives a herd of cattle north on an arduous, dangerous trek to Alaska. But when he reaches his destination, the payoff for his blood, sweat and tears is more blood -- a dastardly double-cross. Ruth Roman, Corinne Calvet, Walter Brennan and John McIntire (from TV's "Wagon Train") co-star.
Big Store / Abbott & Costello in Hollywood
(1941 Charles Reisner 80:-)

In the last of the Marx Brothers' MGM films, Groucho plays two-bit detective Wolf J. Flywheel, hired by department-store owner Martha Phelps (Margaret Dumont) to act as bodyguard for Martha's nephew and sole heir, Tommy Rogers (Tony Martin). Crooked store manager Grover (Douglas Dumbrille) is anxious to take over the operation and to hide the fact that he's been juggling the books; to expedite this, he has arranged several "accidents" to put Tommy out of the way. Despite his monumental ineptitude, Flywheel manages to protect Tommy from harm, with the help of his mute assistant, Wacky (Harpo Marx), and Tommy's music-teacher pal, Ravelli (Chico Marx).

(1945 S Sylvan Simon)

In the last of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello's three MGM features, Bud and Lou play a pair of Tinseltown barbers who dream of becoming high-priced showbiz agents. The plot serves only as a clothesline upon which to hang several sidesplitting comedy routines: Abbott teaching Costello how to give a shave, Lou vainly trying to get a good night's sleep, a "stunt man" bit involving the tremulous Costello and hulking Mike Mazurki, and a wild roller-coaster finale.
