SHOW BOAT (1936)
1936, Warner Brothers, 113 min, Dir: James Whale

James Whale of FRANKENSTEIN fame directs Irene Dunne in this splendid Oscar Hammerstein musical about an overly trusting young woman who, against her mother's better judgment, is thrust into the spotlight as leading lady in a show boat theater company. Features the classic, wistful song "Ol' Man River" as performed by Paul Robeson.

1935, Universal, 81 min, Dir: James Whale

Director James Whale (FRANKENSTEIN, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN) goes screwball with this charming mystery comedy. After a night of debauchery at a friend’s party, a couple (Tony Young and Constance Cummings) awakens the following morning to discover a murdered body. A police investigation ensues, but all of the witnesses were so drunk during the party that no one can remember a lick about the crime!
