|40 59%||Seven Were Saved (1947) - Apr 18, 2021
"Seven Were Saved (1947) is like a low budget rip-off of Alfred Hitchcock's Lifeboat (1944). Let's just say these guys didn't have Hitchcock's eye for detail."

"Felt like Margaret Lockwood was way above the material used. I mean, the story tries to be classic, but the only thing lifting it was Lockwood herself."
|40 59%||Hard Boiled Mahoney (1947) - Apr 18, 2021
"Goofing with The Bowery Boys playing detectives. Had to be a complete spoof, which it was, but it almost became too much so. Wish they'd done more with the actual mystery, but it's naturally good for a laugh."

"A crappy adventure movie. Not much more is needed to say about it. "
|60 90%||The Woman on the Beach (1947) - Apr 18, 2021
"Jean Renoir experienced a lot of the bad side of studio control with The Woman on the Beach resulting in this being very compromised, and his last Hollywood movie. You can see definite vision here. The drama and shorts were intense and strong, but the story doesn't pan out as strong with a lot probable scrapped by the studio heads. But based on what is here, I would almost recommend it anyway. Just try and focus on whats here, and not get frustrated on what it could have been."
|50 78%||The Woman in the Hall (1947) - Apr 17, 2021
"Story of a scamming mother. I can see the appeal to the story. The film doesn't sensationalize what's going on, which I felt held it back a little, but the acting is respectable, so take it as a straight drama and you'll be fine."
|40 59%||Undercover Maisie (1947) - Apr 17, 2021
"The last of Ann Sothern's ten Maisie films. Do have that Maisie charm. At least some of it, but Undercover Maisie (1947) is probable among the worst of the bunch. Ends up actually dragging, and there isn't any majorly funny moments. Clear sign this series was done. But it was a good run. Did bring us Maisie (1939), Maisie Gets Her Man (1942) & Maisie Goes to Reno (1944), which are all good comedies."
|40 59%||Christmas Eve (1947) - Apr 17, 2021
"Couldn't get the grasp of this one. Seemed like it had a lot of ingredients I would love, but I didn't understand where they were going with this or what the focus was. With that there was some entertainment to be had, but no reward."
|50 78%||Bush Christmas (1947) - Apr 17, 2021
"Simple children's story from down-under. Not the wildest of kids adventures, but I found it a wholesome journey. Easy mellow fun."
|40 59%||The Crime Doctor's Gamble (1947) - Apr 17, 2021
"The Crime Doctor's Gamble (1947) has a few bits that were nicely done, but the art angle didn't do much for me. I guess it still was a likable mystery, just not the doctor at his best."
