MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY
1935, Warner Bros. , 132 min, Dir: Frank Lloyd

The South Pacific, 1789. On the far side of the Earth from their home in England, the crew of the H.M.S. Bounty suffers under the sadistic leadership of its captain, William Bligh (Charles Laughton). Months from its return to port, the ship's first mate, Fletcher Christian (Clark Gable), realizes that many of the crewmembers will not survive the voyage unless he takes control of the ship. But his decision to mutiny means that none of the crew can ever return home in this enduring, true adventure filmed on location in Tahiti. Academy Award winner for Best Picture. Edited by Margaret Booth.


I LOVE TROUBLE
1948, Sony Repertory, 93 min, USA, Dir: S. Sylvan Simon

Franchot Tone is a wisecracking private eye sleuthing his way through a bevy of treacherous dames in this playful homage to Raymond Chandler, written by future TV legend Roy Huggins (creator of iconic small-screen series such as "77 Sunset Strip," "The Fugitive" and " The Rockford Files"). On-location sequences featuring midcentury Wilshire, Venice and Long Beach abound. Featuring Janet Blair, Janis Carter, Adele Jergens, Glenda Farrell, John Ireland and (of course) Raymond Burr.


BOMBSHELL
1933, Warner Bros., 96 min, USA, Dir: Victor Fleming

Victor Fleming’s positively breakneck-pace satire of Hollywood. Jean Harlow is at her peak as harried Lola Burns, a movie matinee idol being driven crazy by relentless press agent Lee Tracy (who also has the hots for her). The movie she’s shooting with director heartthrob Pat O’Brien is modeled after RED DUST. Naughty double entendres fly fast and furious in this razor-sharp and unabashedly shameless screwball comedy produced by M-G-M.
