Director William A. Wellman adds another to his long line of salutes-to-aviation films in this bio of an aviation pioneer, John Montgomery (Glenn Ford.) In 1883 he built a practical glider despite the opposition of his friends, who thought he was crazy, and of his family, who were afraid that his dreams of flying would hurt his father's political ambitions. He pursues his education at Santa Clara University where the Jesuits lend a helping and understanding hand. An earthquake destroys what appears to be a working model for an airplane, but a gold-sorting machine Montgomery invented, and then neglected, promises to provide for his financial needs to keep working on his aircraft until he gets involved in costly lawsuits defending his invention.

Scarlet Street is a 1945 film noir movie starring Edward G. Robinson. The movie was directed by Fritz Lang. The combination of Lang and Robinson is reason enough to see the movie. Robinson plays Chris Cross a mild-mannered amateur painter. His character was an 180 degree turn from the tough guy roles that he was known for. Cross comes to the rescue of a young woman named Kitty (Joan Bennett) he thinks is being robbed as he is strolling through Greenwich Village. The would-be-robber is actually the young girl’s shyster boyfriend Johnny (Dan Duryea). Bennett is a femme fatale who uses her charms to seduce and take advantage of Cross. He is trapped in a loveless marriage. Kitty talks Cross into providing her an apartment that can double as an art studio. This is one of the best movies of the film noir genre.

An Angel Comes to Brooklyn

High up in Actors' Heaven-- …
High up in Actors' Heaven---where those actors who have taken their final curtain on earth still maintain a lively interest in theatrical activity---there is a bell which has been named Minnie. When a struggling young actor on Broadway has sufficient faith in himself---if he believes strongly enough in his ability and talent---then Minnie rings out clearly, signaling that the time is right for an angel to leave Actors' Heaven and go down to earth to help a worthy, but-as-yet-successful actor or actress. When versatile, young Karen James refuses to be discouraged by her rejection by producer Rodney Lloyd, Minnie rings out loudly and clearly. Phineas Aloysius Higby, who was a magician before he was called to Actor's Heaven, begs to be allowed to go earthward to help Karen and is finally assigned the job. Phineas rents a room in the theatrical boarding house run by Madam Della, an ex-prima donna who has never gotten over it. Karen also lives there, as well as David Randall, a young artist. David conceals his love for Karen because he believes she loves Paul Blake, an advertising writer who pretends, for Karen's sake, that he has playwriting ambitions. Phineas befriends Karen and David and accompanies them to another audition for Rodney Lloyd, who rejects Karen again but is entranced by Phineas' magic and tries to sign him up. Phineas consults Sir Henry Bushnell, head man of Actors' Heaven, and secures his permission to pretend to be a producer in order to encourage Karen. Phineas then promises to produce a show to be written by Paul (who can't write)and to star Karen and her friends, Tiny , Rosie, Susie , Kay , Barbara, and others, all theatrically ambitious, talented kids now working in a department store. David dreams up several production numbers, and even Madam Della's maid, Theresa, who also sings in a night club, and her accompanist and agent, Cliff , join in with a hot number of their own. But complications arise and, before long, Phineas has created many problems and soon has Minnie the Bell ringing constantly and boisterously.
