The Crime of Doctor Hallet (1938)


The Crime of Doctor Hallet (1938)

This underrated feature stars Ralph Bellamy as Dr. Paul Hallet, working in the jungles of Sumatra with associate Jack Murray (William Gargan), experimenting on monkeys in search of a cure for red fever. Enter a much younger doctor, Phillip Saunders (John “Dusty” King), whose arrival is met with disapproval by the much older Hallet, who consigns the newcomer to a life of cleaning test tubes.

Accidentally stumbling on a possible cure, Saunders tries to share his discovery with the unresponsive Hallet, then decides to conduct his own private research without the others knowledge. When Hallet arrives at his own solution, the eager Saunders inoculates himself with red fever, trusting that Hallet’s cure will save him, but it fails. Learning that funds have dried up, and that the late Saunders had 4000 dollars in travelers checks, the repentant, guilt ridden Hallet decides to carry on, forging his colleague’s name after burying Saunders as Paul Hallet. Complications ensue with a replacement doctor, the beautiful Mary Reynolds (Josephine Hutchinson), and then the widowed wife of the late Saunders (Barbara Read, “The Man Who Cried Wolf”), both unaware of what has transpired in the remote jungle.

Go West (1940)


Go West (1940)

Embezzler, shill, all around confidence man S. Quentin Quale is heading west to find his fortune; he meets the crafty but simple brothers Joseph and Rusty Panello in a train station, where they steal all his money. They’re heading west, too, because they’ve heard you can just pick the gold off the ground. Once there, they befriend an old miner named Dan Wilson whose property, Dead Man’s Gulch, has no gold. They loan him their last ten dollars so he can go start life anew, and for collateral, he gives them the deed to the Gulch.

Unbeknownst to Wilson, the son of his longtime rival, Terry Turner (who’s also in love with his daughter, Eva), has contacted the railroad to arrange for them to build through the land, making the old man rich and hopefully resolving the feud. But the evil Red Baxter, owner of a saloon, tricks the boys out of the deed, and it’s up to them – as well as Quale, who naturally finds his way out west anyway – to save the day.

Sorekara / And Then… (1985)

This is a probing tale set in turn of the century Japan, involving three people trapped in a complex relationship of love and friendship. Daisuke (Yusaku Matsuda) is supposed to be out looking for a respectable job and equally respectable wife. He is 30 years old and devotes his attention to music and literature; his family is wealthy and can support his interests.

When his friend Hiraoka (Kaoru Kobayashi) returns with his wife Michiyo (Miwako Fujitani), problems arise. Hiraoka, not the best-tempered person in the world, has just lost his job. His wife Michiyo was once in love with Daisuke and when the two see each other again, their old feelings surface. Michiyo is not really happy in her marriage to Hiraoka, but Hiraoka, who condemns Daisuke’s unwillingness to work, was once his best friend. Should Daisuke choose to keep Hiraoka’s friendship and the respect of his society by ignoring Michiyo — or rebel and go after her?
