Review: Scared Stiff (1945)

Image
Scared Stiff is a 1945 comedic whodunnit in which a bumbling newspaper chess reporter (was there ever such a thing in real life?) finds himself entangled in a murder plot with a jeweled set of chess pieces as the McGuffin. Misunderstandings and wacky shenanigans pad out a thin plot built of Three's Company proportions. Jack Haley (the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz ) is likable enough as the lead, but the real draw for me is Ann Savage who gives a warm, charismatic turn that stands in stark contrast to her iconic performance in Ulmer’s noir classic Detour , which hit theaters the same year. Veda Ann Borg, whom I just recently watched in the poverty row jungle picture Blonde Savage , fills out the supporting cast as an insurance detective. For those of us who love seeing strong women in Golden Age roles, we've got a winner.  While I really enjoy the cast, the movie is middling. It was made by Pine-Thomas Productions, a B-movie unit under the purview of Paramount Pictures, but t

Under Western Stars (1938)

Image
Set agains the backdrop of the Dust Bowl crisis, Under Western Stars  sees Roy Rogers squaring off against the water company who’s trying to charge the citizens for their precious H2O in a time of drought. In doing so, he gets himself arrested, but the townsfolk love him because he’s a man of the people. Before you know it, he’s nominated to be a congressman. His good looks and smooth voice make him a lock for the female vote, while his tenacity and grit give him wide appeal to the men. Smiley Burnett, Gene Autry’s old sidekick, appears alongside Roy for this adventure, but his gimmick—a frog-voiced multi-instrumentalist—is virtually identical. Carol Hughes plays the female lead here but, as with many of the roles at the time, there's not much for her to do other than be occasionally feisty and have the hero fall in love with her in the last reel. I also note that, just like Gene Autry in his films, Roy Rogers plays “Roy Rogers.” Under Western Stars was filmed during a Republic wa
