Hold back the dawn (1941) - lesser known drama from director Mitchell Leisen, starring Olivia de Havilland, Charles Boyer, Paulette Godard and Walter Abel

Rating 7.4/10
Runtime: 116 min
Language: English
Country: USA
Directed by: Mitchell Leisen
IMDb Link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0033722/

Cast

Charles Boyer ... Georges Iscovescu
Olivia de Havilland ... Emmy Brown
Paulette Goddard ... Anita Dixon
Victor Francen ... Van Den Luecken
Walter Abel ... Inspector Hammock
Curt Bois ... Bonbois
Rosemary DeCamp ... Berta Kurz
Eric Feldary ... Josef Kurz
Nestor Paiva ... Fred Flores

Description: Romanian gigolo Georges Iscovescu is trying to get into the United States to become a citizen. Because of the visa requirement, he instead travels to Tijuana, Mexico to cross into the States via the land border, not realizing that this situation has its own obstacles, namely the quota system per country, Romanians who have up to an eight year wait. In joining the queue in Tijuana, he ends up at the Hotel Esperanza which houses many of those in his similar situation. In running into an old colleague he met in Europe, the former Polish-Australian Anita Dixon now divorced US citizen Mrs. Shaughnessy - she a female version of him - he decides to do what she did to become a US citizen: get married to an American, Mr. Shaughnessy who she quickly divorced after getting her citizenship. After a few missteps in finding an American to marry, Georges sets his sights on schoolteacher Emmy Brown, a woman naive in the affairs of the heart, in Mexico with her class on a field trip. What happens between Georges and Emmy is affected by: the presence of Mr. Hammock, a US immigration inspector who is trying to clamp down on marriages of convenience, the presence of Mrs. Shaughnessy, who will do whatever is required to ply her trade with him, the two of them together who she sees as the perfect match in being the same; and Georges' own ideas of what best to do with Emmy.

Rating 7.3/10
Runtime: 96 min
Language: English
Country: USA
Directed by: Karl Malden

Martin Balsam ... Sgt. Baker
Rip Torn ... Lt. George Miller

Description: A US Army Colonel, William Edwards, is tasked with investigating the conduct of Major Harry Cargill while incarcerated during the Korean War. Cargill is accused of aiding and abetting the enemy by admitting to atrocities and then preaching communist propaganda to the men in his hut. Edwards' job is to make a recommendation to General Connors on what, if any, charges should be laid. The scuttlebutt is that Cargill is guilty and it's all an open and shut case. Edwards isn't convinced that Cargill is guilty of anything but the case is all the more complicated because the General's son was also in the same prisoners hut but died during captivity. Oddly, Cargill will do nothing to defend himself and as Edwards reviews the evidence, he becomes convinced that the men involved are hiding something...

Hope Lange ... Elma Duckworth
Hans Conried ... Life Magazine Photographer

Description: Twenty-one year old Beauregard Decker, who owns his own ranch in Timber Hill, Montana, and his friend, Virgil Blessing, who is like a father to him, are heading to Phoenix, Arizona by bus for Beau to take part in the Phoenix World Rodeo Championship. As Beau has had no experience with women being isolated on the ranch, this trip only being the second time in his life that he has stepped foot off the ranch, Virgil believes this trip may be a good time for Beau to start thinking about women with the eventual goal of finding a wife. Virgil's idea of such a wife for Beau is a girl like Elma Duckworth, a young next-door type who boards the bus at Grace's Diner in southern Utah. But Beau, who wants to marry an "angel" and will know that angel when he sees her, immediately believes that that woman is Chérie, the performer at the Blue Dragon Café in Phoenix, she who also hustles for drinks from the customers on her boss' directive. Chérie, from River Gulch, Arkansas, decided to hit the road with no goal or destination in mind, and along the way figured her destiny was to be a Hollywood star. Beyond her beauty, Chérie is talentless and uneducated, even though her outward appearance makes her look experienced. Socially unaware and direct Beau, who figures he has no time to court, does whatever he needs to to get Chérie to go with him back to Montana as his wife after the rodeo has concluded. He ends up being single-minded in his pursuit of her. Despite being physically attracted to him, Chérie may have other things on her mind than marriage to a bully of a Montana cowboy...
