|30 T5||Sweetheart of the Campus (1941) - Nov 09, 2017
"Ruby Keeler comes back for one last starring appearance to basically introduce the married showbiz couple Ozzie Nelson & Harriet Nelson who would later go on to be a bigger hit on radio and television than the silver screen with their longstanding TV-show The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. Sweetheart of the Campus (1941) however is a low budget musical which doesn't go anywhere. A sad farewell to Keeler."
|40 T7||Lady Scarface (1941) - Nov 09, 2017
"The plot is alright for a basic crime picture, but the pacing is uneven making the climax a rather dull one. Entertaining in parts, but not exactly as cool as it's title suggests."
|50 T8||The Gay Falcon (1941) - Nov 09, 2017
"George Sanders goes from being The Saint to becoming a similar but lighter character called The Falcon in a short-lived film series. Amusing, and it's more for laughs than thrills. Sanders Saint always took himself a little too seriously, here everything's more of a joke and works better for the programmer format. Doesn't hurt that he has Allen Jenkins as his sidekick."
|40 T7||We Go Fast (1941) - Nov 09, 2017
"Starts off like it's a moralistic speed driving flick, but quickly turns goofy with oriental schemers and stupid cops, dames and officials. Something fitting for a 50s & 60s sitcom, especially with Don DeFore there."
|50 T8||Strange Alibi (1941) - Nov 09, 2017
"The subject is handled a little too easy because it's only an hour long programmer, but few studios were better than Warner Bros making these kinds of B-pictures exciting and to the core. A crime bust filled with killing, corruption and prison suffrage. No time wasted with Arthur Kennedy making the most of this straight forward quick action flick. Sure, there is little time for stuff to sink in, but it's definitely a entertaining one."
|40 T7||South of Tahiti (1941) - Nov 09, 2017
"A real goofy island adventure. Once you get used to the stupidity it gets kind of fun with fat Andy Devine courting a exotic dame 1/10th his size and the trio brawling around the island with some bad pearl men. Not exactly good, but worth a few laughs."
|40 T7||Aloma of the South Seas (1941) - Nov 08, 2017
"Mostly a bore, but the allure of seeing stunning Dorothy Lamour in color and it's "exotic" sets make up for some of it. With that said, it's no south seas glamor drama you'll need to see."
|40 T7||Nine Lives Are Not Enough (1941) - Nov 08, 2017
"A fast-paced time-filler with Ronald Reagan. Good role for him without the script blowing anyone away. Typical programmer of the day, good for a few laughs."
|60 T9||Flight from Destiny (1941) - Nov 08, 2017
"A dying old man wants to kill a evil lady to because she deserves it, and as he's dying there is no consequence, he thinks. Fascinating idea, while not the best emotional push, the story is still a captivating and philosophical one with Thomas Mitchell doing a fine performance."
|60 T9||Hold That Ghost (1941) - Nov 07, 2017
"Lou Costello is such a adorable scaredy-cat!"
