Movie Clip

North Avenue Irregulars, The (1979) -- (Movie Clip) He's Not Taking Threats Rev. Hill (Edward Herrmann), baffled by rampant gambling at his church, takes to the air with an ad-libbed crusade, alarming his secretary (Susan Clark), also Patsy Kelly and Douglas Fowley, bookie Harry (Alan Hale Jr.), gangster Roca (Frank Campanella) and parishoners Barbara Harris and Cloris Leachman, in the Walt Disney crime-comedy The North Avenue Irregulars, 1979.
North Avenue Irregulars, The (1979) -- (Movie Clip) God, Are You Home? Opening with Edward Herrmann in a relatively rare lead role, as Presbyterian Rev. Hill, with his kids (Bobby Rolofson, Melora Hardin) arriving at his new church, where the gang of ladies for whom the picture is named are having a crisis, Karen Valentine, Patsy Kelly, Cloris Leachman, Virginia Capers, Barbara Harris and Susan Clark at the fore, in Disney’s The North Avenue Irregulars, 1979.
Desperate (1947) -- (Movie Clip) We Were Gonna Celebrate Two consecutive high points for Audrey Long as innocent Ann, expecting to celebrate her four-month anniversary with war-hero truck-driver husband Steve (Steve Brodie), who was an unwilling participant in a robbery gone wrong, now on the run, early in director Anthony Mann’s Desperate, 1947.
Desperate (1947) -- (Movie Clip) Some Junk For The County Fair The kindly sheriff who was about to take fugitives Steve and Ann (Steve Brodie, Audrey Long) into custody conveniently crashed into a tree, so they move on to their next conveyance, and a famous shot from director Anthony Mann with George E. Diskant’s camera, headed for her family farm, in Desperate, 1947.
Kansas Pacific (1953) -- (Movie Clip) Bleeding Kansas From the opening credits, Barton MacLane as railroad man Bruce, Harry Shannon the crusty engineer "Smokestack," Douglas Fowley with the gun among the Confederate-backed vandals, in Kansas Pacific, 1953, starring Sterling Hayden.
Armored Car Robbery (1950) -- (Movie Clip) Some Guys Might Go For Her In just the second scene, director Richard Fleischer getting full exploitation value from Adele Jergens as stripper Yvonne, with master thief Dave (William Talman) looking to take advantage of her discarded husband Benny (Douglas Fowley), in Armored Car Robbery, 1950.
Singin' In The Rain (1952) -- (Movie Clip) Wired For Sound Comedy set piece on the switch to talkies, Gene Kelly as silent-star Don Lockwood, Jean Hagen stealing it as his dingbat screen lover Lina, with the disastrous voice, Douglas Fowley the imploding director, Millard Mitchell the studio boss with the slapstick payoff, in Singin’ In The Rain, 1952.
Kansas Pacific (1953) -- (Movie Clip) I Figured It Was Just Bad Luck Engineer Nelson (Sterling Hayden), posing as a civilian, though we know he’s an under-cover Union officer, visits with Barbara (Eve Miller) before busting Southern sympathizers looking to sabotage his rail crew, her dad (Barton MacLane) and pal (Harry Shannon) impressed, in Kansas Pacific, 1953.
Armored Car Robbery (1950) -- (Movie Clip) He Doesn't Mean The Whiskey Nervous Benny (Douglas Fowley) and out-of-town friend Dave (William Talman) pitch the heist to skeptical Los Angeles thugs Mapes (Steve Brodie) and Foster (Gene Evans), early in director Richard Fleischer's Armored Car Robbery, 1950.
