Good gracious! Another bunch of films I don't know! Oh...but that means I don't have any of them for you.

"It's Not Cricket" is not on this new list of yours. Did you find a copy of that too? Or was it re-prioritized in the tinkering? ( I certainly know how that goes... ) While looking up cast lists of your first ten, I noticed that "...Cricket" stars Basil Radford and Naunton Wayne. Is it a Charters & Caldicott comedy?

I'm so happy for you, finding "The Last Outlaw"! If the sound isn't so good, well... At least you have the pleasure of looking at Harry Carey, Sr. I love the man's face.

With the checking-off of "The Runaround" ( thank you, thank you! ), the battle began! What title would take it's place in The Ingenue's Ten Most Wanted? Why it's "Two-Fisted" (1935), by a knock-out.

Don't it look like a pip?! Notice the cast list at the bottom of the still ( providing the still shows up--I'm having a little server trouble ): Lee Tracy, Roscoe Karns, Gail Patrick, Kent Taylor and Grace Bradley. That's for me.

There's a few Ann Sheridan films I'm still hunting for, most notably Winter Carnival (1939). A Complicated Girl (1969) is an early giallo I've been searching for, as well as Five Women for the Killer (1974)--I can find prints in Italian, but not subtitled. I'm also looking for a copy of Renoir's Le Chienne (1931), as well as a better transfer of The Crime of M. Lange (1935)--mine is washed out and faded. Back in the U.S.A., I'm trying to find decent prints of the following:

Mystery Ranch (1932)
The Man who Reclaimed His Head (1934)
Who is Hope Schuyler? (1942)
The Man who Wouldn't Die (1942)
Jealousy (1945)
M (1951)--the American remake of Lang's 1931 film

The Man Who Wouldn't Die is another good one in the Michael Shayne series (I've always liked Lloyd Nolan) and it's one of four titles on the Michael Shayne Mysteries: Volume One set, available for sale on Amazon
... or for rental on ClassicFlix.

Mystery Ranch (1932) is also available for rental from ClassicFlix, but it seems to be one of those titles that is forever on "wait." But I'm still keeping it in my queue!

I'll add THE CRIMINAL CODE, a Howard Hawks prison drama still talked about. Jack Arnold's THE TATTERED DRESS. I don't expect greatness, but I like the director's eye for small scale drama. The original GLASS KEY. I like the second filming and the book. I often hear about obscure crime stories on this site. But I don't write them down. Now I don't remember the titles!

There are a couple of Karloff creepers I haven't seen. THE MAN WITH NINE LIVES, maybe? They all look alike after a while!

One of these days, I'm going to have to get my own computer. Just can't see watching a movie on You Tube at the library! I don't think I have seen the Karloff film you mentioned, MK. Again, so many of them have common themes. Boris was always being reborn in one sense or another! But this one doesn't sound familiar.

Mary-Kate was kind enough to send me a copy of the 1935 THE GLASS KEY. It's outstanding! Darker and more intimate than the later version; benefiting, rather than suffering, from its low production values. The focus is on story, story and story! If anything, the young George Raft makes a more believable streetwise fixer than Alan Ladd. Likewise, Edward Arnold, a tremendous and selfless player, bites into the role of political ward boss and rips it to pieces.

The one thing this early telling of Dashiel Hammett's page turner lacks is the deliciously menacing William Bendix. Bendix goes to town in the 1940s version as the sadistic pugilist charged with "babysitting" the captive hero. In the Raft/Arnold project, that postion is filled by Guinn "Big Boy" Williams! Williams, a big boy and then some, is fine in the role. His presence does nothing to hurt the credibility of this excellent thriller. But Bendix is the shining star of the other film, and his charm (maybe I should think of a better word!) is missed in this one.

Both filmings of THE GLASS KEY are fascinating. In the long run, this all but forgotten classic is the better.
