This is a really low budget crime film with Walter Matthau. It makes me think it would have been a lot more entertaining if it had a budget. Still, it is Walter Matthau and he does get in some funny lines.
He’s just a gigolo, everywhere he goes. He’s Ricardo “They call me Rick” DeVilla. He seduces a wealthy and sickly widow, Vanessa Bancroft, and plays the part of the good husband. Really he’s a bad, bad boy. Even the bongo player wants to kill him for fooling around with his wife.
It’s the war of 1812 and Captain James Marshall has to run the British blockade enforced by the British to get a loan from France. When his crew finds out that they are carrying gold, it’s Mutiny.
This is Anna May Wong playing Lotus Flower who falls in love with an American. It’s silent. It’s the first movie printed to be used in a regular film projector and the 8th color movie ever made.
The film concerns Starman’s efforts to save the Earth from the followers of Balazar, an evil genius from the planet Zemar whose brain has been preserved after his own assassination
Cary Grant plays Earnest Bliss a rich socialite who makes a bet with his doctor that he can make a living for one year using none of his current wealth. This is a real cute movie.
