Meet John Doe  - Full Movie - GREAT QUALITY (1941)
 
02:02:53
Meet John Doe is a 1941 American comedy drama film directed and produced by Frank Capra, and starring Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck. The film is about a "grassroots" political campaign created unwittingly by a newspaper columnist with the involvement of a hired homeless man and pursued by the paper's wealthy owner. It became a box office hit and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Story. It was ranked #49 in AFI's 100 Years... 100 Cheers. It was the first of two features Capra made for Warner Brothers, after he left Columbia Pictures. His second film for Warners was an adaptation of the Broadway play Arsenic and Old Lace and was filmed in 1941 but not released until 1944 because the producers of the play wouldn't allow the film to be shown until the production closed. PLOT A reporter (Barbara Stanwyck) writes a fictitious column about someone named "John Doe," who is distraught at America's neglect of the little people and plans to kill himself. The newspaper then hires a ballplayer-turned-hobo (Gary Cooper) to pose as John Doe. In a series of radio addresses written by a publisher with fascist leanings, Doe captures the public's imagination. When he finally realizes he has been used, Doe comes to his senses and becomes the man he never knew he could be.

01:40:32
The File on Thelma Jordon is a 1950 film noir directed by Robert Siodmak from a screenplay by Ketti Frings. It stars Barbara Stanwyck and Wendell Corey. Time Out film guide noted, "A fine film noir which works an ingenious, intricate variation on the situation in Double Indemnity, but which takes its tone, unlike Wilder's film, not from Stanwyck's glittering siren who courts her own comeuppance ("Judgement day, Jordon!"), but from the nondescript assistant DA she drives to the brink of destruction." PLOT Cleve Marshall (Wendell Corey) is an assistant district attorney who falls for the shadowy Thelma Jordon (Barbara Stanwyck). With her sordid past -- and her relationship with thief Tony Laredo (Richard Rober) -- kept secret from the married attorney, Jordon seduces the easily swayed Marshall, and uses him to cover up her misdeeds. When Jordon becomes the prime suspect for the murder of her wealthy aunt, she turns to Marshall, who goes to great lengths to clear her name.

The film is based on the 1946 novel of the same name, written by William Lindsay Gresham. Buy this movie on DVD: http://amzn.to/2xqujIL Buy Tyrone Power movies/books: http://amzn.to/2f5vX89 Great book on American Film Noir: http://amzn.to/2xJIHwB The 101 Best Film Noir Posters From The 1940s-1950s: http://amzn.to/2xIqrUp [The above are amazon affiliate links] Power, wishing to expand beyond the romantic and swashbuckler roles that brought him to fame, bought the rights to the novel so he could star as the unsavory lead, "The Great Stanton", a scheming carnival barker. The film premiered in the United States on October 9, 1947, then went into wide release on October 28, 1947, later having six more European releases between November 1947 to May 1954. To make the film more believable, the producers built a full working carnival on ten acres (40,000 m2) of the 20th Century Fox back lot. They also hired over 100 sideshow attractions and carnival people to add further authenticity. Nightmare Alley was somewhat unusual among film noir in having top stars, production staff and a relatively large budget. Despite a strong promotion campaign, the film was not a financial success upon its original release, due in part to protests against some of the scandalous content. The film has found acclaim and is regarded as a classic. PLOT (Minor Spoilers) Roustabout Stanton Carlisle (Tyrone Power) joins a traveling carny and unsuccessfully schemes to figure out the mind-reading act of Mademoiselle Zeena (Joan Blondell) and her alcoholic husband, Pete (Ian Keith). But when Pete dies, Zeena is forced to take on Stanton as a partner, and he quickly proves more gifted than his predecessor. Ambitious to a fault, Carlisle abandons Zeena and the carny to reinvent himself as "The Great Stanton," wowing high-class audiences in a Chicago hotel.

The Passenger Train (1940)
 
11:39
Contents. An account of a train journey. Passengers arrive by cabs at the station. After they purchase their tickets, they pass through the gates to the track where their train is waiting. The streamlined Diesel engine locomotive stands ready for the trip. Mr. Shroder, the engineer, checks over his controls, and his attendant inspects the big motors. Final preparations are made for departure. Baggage and mail are loaded into the cars. The conductor calls "All aboard!" and signals the engineer. The train doors are closed, and Mr. Shroder opens the throttle. Sand pours onto the rails to keep the wheels from slipping as the train gets under way. A signal is set for "Stop," and the engineer applies the air brakes. When the signal changes to "Go," the train moves ahead. In the coaches the conductor is taking tickets. The passengers are comfortably seated. The conductor passes through the vestibule from one car to another. Mr. Shroder closes the throttle to slow down for a sharp curve. The train passes under a viaduct and speeds on its tracks along a river. The commentator explains that tracks are often built alongside rivers. In the observation car some of the passengers are talking, some writing, and others playing cards. Now the train passes through a deep cut and into a tunnel. At historic Harpers Ferry (West Virginia) it crosses the Potomac River. In the dining car, dinner is being served. The chef and his staff of cooks prepare the food which the waiters carry on large trays. The Pullman porters prepare the berths for the night. Some of the passengers who are not yet ready to go to bed read newspapers and magazines. The porter places a ladder for a passenger to climb into an upper berth. While the train rushes through the night, the engineer and his attendant are busy watching the motors, the controls, and the track ahead. The safety and lives of the passengers depend upon their skill and watchfulness. Appraisal. Excellent for (1) showing the operation of a passenger train and (2) giving impressions of the experiences of a passenger traveling by train. Should be useful in developing an understanding of the contribution of science to modern transportation and in furthering an appreciation of the high level of organization and cooperation required in the operation of a railroad.
