5. Did I mention Fritz Lang and his next film noir?
6. Michael Powell`s war romance
7. And finally...yes you are right, this is really black week of film-noir :), but that last one will have many comedic accents included
I know there are some visitors from Argentina, that want blood, bullets, stagecoaches, Indians, revolvers, I mean westerns, unfortunately, there is no one to be posted very soon, but promise you to post one before end of August :)
Oh, I almost forgot, some time ago I promised you some of late 1920s-early 1930s "pre-code" classics, of course they will be posted, but I am just completing some of them right now, they will appear on site in early September I think

He reaches her, but a German agent is quickly onto him, and Lodor dies. Jesper must now get into Italy, go underground with the help of Gina, a resistance leader, and convince Polda, a physicist there, to leave with him. Polda won't go until his daughter is rescued from German detention. As Jesper's pal Pinky works on rescuing Polda's daughter and as time for escape runs down, Jesper and Gina fall in love.

Description: Married New Yorkers Tom and Geraldine Jeffers love each other, but money, or lack thereof, is causing problems in their marriage. Tom, an ideas man, needs $99,000 to finance his latest project - the working model of a suspended airport - money which no one is willing to provide. Gerry is feeling like a burden around her husband's neck as she, self-professed, has no marketable economic skills beyond her feminine wiles. So Gerry decides unilaterally to run off to Palm Beach, Florida and give Tom a divorce. Without money, she uses those feminine wiles to finesse her way to Palm Beach via train and yacht. One of those that assists her on her journey is extremely wealthy, single and straight-laced John D. Hackensacker III. Gerry thinks that John may be the answer to Tom's financial backing worries. So when Tom follows Gerry down to Palm Beach, she introduces him to John not as her soon to be ex-husband but rather her single brother, Captain McGlew, who John renames Mac. But with Mac being single and handsome, John's flamboyant and man-hungry sister Maude, also known as the Princess Centimillia, thinks she's found her next husband, just as John thinks he's found his future wife.
