Pretty Lois Collier is a forgotten Jane Powell type singer who is a witness to murder here and becomes the target of some buffoonish hit men (Richard Lane and Edward Brophy) as she prepares to star in a Broadway revival of "The Pirates of Penzance". She's being mentored by the sweet Ludwig Stossel, a faded conductor whose Gilbert and Sullivan company is only put on Broadway as a way of trapping the killers. In addition to songs from "Pirates", there are also a few tunes from "HMS Pinafore", and smart viewers will immediately notice a resemblance between this and the finale of the 1978 comedy thriller "Foul Play" where Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn had to trap a killer during a performance of "The Mikado".

Gilbert and Sullivan operettas were performed with great regularity at New York's City Center up until the 1960's, but until the 1980's revival of "The Pirates of Penzance" (updated for modern audiences), they were not considered worthy of a fully staged Broadway revival.

The sight of Lane and Brophy in very bad drag (trying to look like society matrons) is hysterical, especially as they hem and haw over shooting Collier because of "how beautiful" it all appears to be, weeping while struggling to put off shooting her.

Order this rarely-seen and hard-to-find classic today for the low price of $5.99.

Blazing Frontier (1943)


Stars: Buster Crabbe, Al St. John, Marjorie Manners


Buster Crabbe and Al St. John (or "Our Old Pals", as they were invariably billed) star in the PRC western Blazing Frontier. As ever, Crabbe plays Billy the Kid, aka Billy Carson, while St. John is the daffy Fuzzy Q. Jones. This time, Billy intervenes in a feud between the railroad company and local settlers. Crooked land agents are busily stoking the flames of the feud, and it's up to Billy and Fuzzy to keep things from getting out of hand.
