Another Saturday At The Movies

And now, boys and girls, time for another web site movie program.

For starters, let's go back to 1945 for "The Dippy Diplomat," starring Woody Woodpecker.  In this one, Wally Walrus is preparing a big barbecue for Ambassador Ivan Awfulitch.  But Woody has other ideas.  This Walter Lantz-produced cartoon, released by Universal Pictures, with story by Ben Hardaway and Milt Schaffer, animation by Pat Matthews and Grim Natwick, and music by Darrell Calker, was directed by James (Shamus) Culhane.

Next, W. C. Fields stars in the 1930 RKO Radio Pictures short subject "The Golf Specialist."  This short was produced by Louis Brock and directed by Monte Brice.

Next, we turn to the third chapter of our 1941 Universal Pictures serial, Sea Raiders with the Dead End Kids and Little Tough Guys.

Which brings up to our feature presentation!

We present the 1950  film noir classic "D.O.A."  Edmund O'Brien stars as the victim of a slow poison who tries to track down his own killer.  This film also stars Pamela Britton, Luther Adler, Neville Brand, and Beverly Campbell.  With Harry M. Popkin as executive producer, photography by Ernest Lazlo and music by Dimitri Tiomkin, this United Artists release was written by Russel Rouse and Clarence Greene, produced by Leo C. Popkin and directed by Rudolph Mate.
