Here are more film clips for your enjoyment:

  • The Longest Day (1962) - Sever has prepared a clip featuring Sean Connery, Peter Lawford, and their countrymen fighting in WWII with guns and bagpipes, the music for which is apparently an acquired taste—Sever also upgraded our existing clip

  • The Lost Weekend (1945) - Sever upgraded our current clip

  • Mad Love (1935) - In this macabre sequence, madman organist Peter Lorre attempts to strangle Frances Drake, but is thwarted by the most miraculous knife throw in cinema history

  • Marianne (1929) - here we have Marion Davies, with a WWI French accent as thick as pâté de foie gras, cooking a roast pig intended for the officers, only to have it stolen by her soldier boyfriend (Lawrence Gray)

  • Night After Night (1932) - in this fast-paced sequence, brassy Mae West is out on the town with George Raft, Constance Cummings, Alison Skipworth, and Roscoe Karns—listen for her famous line about how she acquired her diamonds!

  • The Squall (1929) - exotic card-playing Myrna Loy tantalizes the local farmhand (Harry Cording) so much, he decides to break into song and then chase her behind either:  1) a straw house; or 2) the largest bale of hay we've ever seen—also look for ZaSu Pitts as the hectoring Lena

  • They Got Me Covered (1943) - John Abbott changes into Dorothy Lamour's clothes, while perplexed Bob Hope stands by...until a secret note is delivered (by young Arnold Stang) in a sandwich—also enjoy ditzy Phyllis Ruth at the end of the clip
