Live a Little, Love a Little

The Hucksters

Loading...
The Hucksters (1947) is a considerably sanitized version of the best-selling novel by Frederic Wakeman. Directed by Jack Conway, the film is a slick but still powerful, and at times darkly funny, indictment of the seamy side of advertising, radio, and big business. Clark Gable plays a World War II veteran who gets a job in advertising, and finds that his work requires him to often abandon his principles. Deborah Kerr, in her American film debut, plays an English widow Gable falls in love with, and Ava Gardner has one of her first important roles as a nightclub singer who's a former girlfriend of Gable's. In a deliciously flamboyant performance, Sydney Greenstreet tears into the juicy role of a villainous soap tycoon, Gable's major client.

Forbidden Hollywood Collection: Vol. 1

Loading...
In the early 1930's, before Hollywood began enforcing a self-imposed Production Code, many films allowed for extraordinary frankness including nudity, adultery and prostitution. In this restored and remastered three-movie collection, three daring young actresses are featured in racy, riveting star vehicles. Jean Harlow is a red-headed secretary who hooks the company's married boss, while carrying on with chauffeur Charles Boyer. A young soldier is forced to give up Mae Clarke when his well-to-do family learns she's a prostitute, in Waterloo Bridge. Finally baby-faced Barbara Stanwyck sleeps her way up the corporate ladder in a New York bank, not caring who gets hurt.

Mission to Moscow

Loading...
"In their relentless battle against Hitler, the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. were comrades ... or at least comrades-in-arms. Hollywood joined the fight with Mission to Moscow, based on Ambassador Joseph E. Davies' bestseller about his pre-World War II experiences in the Soviet Union. The film features Academy Award winner Walter Huston as Davies, plus accomplished actors playing the headline-dominating figures of Churchill, Stalin, von Ribbentrop, Litvinov, Molotov and more. For its sometimes-sympathetic picture of Stalin's regime, the film sparked impassioned debate then and remains fascinating now, both for its insights into early American-Soviet relations and its urgent sense of the danger the emerging Axis Powers posed to the world"--Container.
