Comedies

A comic, religious baseball fantasy. Lightweight and farfetched, nevertheless the cast makes it work.

This print is much sharper and cleaner than the existing IA copy, and it is in the correct aspect ratio. A telling spoof of instant celebrity culture and one of the thirties' great screwball comedies with a cast well suited to its whacky screenplay. Directed by William Wellman. Released in 1937. Complete print.

A show troupe, led by Dan Dixon (Joe E Brown) and traveling in a trailer, is stranded in Paraguay.

Things go from bad to badder when local bandito Sancho Ramirez (Leo Carrillo) falls in love with one of the show girls, Charlita (Steffi Duna). Also stars Beverly Roberts Directed by Frank McDonald. Released in 1938. This was Joe E Brown's final film for David L Loew Productions. Complete print.

This glitch-free print is sharper than the existing IA copy, and with a much smaller download file.

"A Christmas Wish" (colorized re-edit) Complete print
