Evelyn Prentice - 1934

Evelyn Prentice - 1934 - Myrna Loy and William Powell

Evelyn Prentice - Released Nov 9, 1934. Directed William K. Howard

John Prentice (William Powell) is a successful lawyer with a busy schedule that rarely allows him to be at home where his wife Evelyn (Myrna Loy) is usually patiently waiting for him to attend various social functions and even simple events like a family dinner. When it appears through circumstantial evidence that on a week-long business trip to New York City that John Prentice has been romantically involved with a female client, Evelyn unhappily responds to the invitations from a young man (who claims to be a poet, among other things) which begins a brief friendship that soon slips into blackmail and murder.

Powell and Loy are usually seen as a prime comedic pair from the golden age of screwball comedies, but they also made a few melodramas together, and Evelyn Prentice might be the best of them. A great backing cast with Una Merkel, Rosalind Russell, and Isabel Jewell helps to spread the tale across more than just the dysfunction of the marriage between the Prentice's, but also a small insight into how court cases are developed, and the trust (or lack of it) between attorney and client contributes to how a case is presented before a judge.

The Living Skeleton - Released Nov 9, 1968 in Japan. Directed by Hiroki Matsuno

Twin sisters (both played by Kikko Matsuoka) are the focus of this bizarre ghost story from Shochiku Studios and director Matsuno. Pirates murder a crew aboard the freighter The Dragon King, and with their loot they disperse across Japan. But when the ship inexplicably appears again three years later, the pirates, who are now disguised as regular business people, retirees or have degenerated into gutter alcoholics, begin dying one by one.

The Man in the White Suit - 1951

The Man in the White Suit - Released Aug 7, 1951. Directed by Alexander Mackendrick

Alec Guinness (as Sidney Stratton) works in the British textile trades, and invents a nearly indestructible suit that doesn't tear, stain or even wrinkle. This miraculous suit is immediately a nightmare to various garment companies around the country who see a future in which families will hardly need to purchase more than a few outfits that will last for indefinite periods of time, destroying the profitability of any clothing-manufacturing enterprise. Joan Greenwood (as Daphne Birnley) is the quirky daughter one of these textile barons, and she is called upon to subvert Stratton, but the pair soon find themselves in a goofy romance that comes as a complication to the future previously planned for the young woman.
