Lauren Bacall introducing it and I can definitely live with these clips. I understand the theme of the evening now: Show various genres of films to pad the time.

Oh, that’s nice. Wrap it in the trailer style of the ’30s and ’40s and don’t reveal titles like it was done with the biopics. That’s really not fair. Why not educate the people about these movies?

Peter Lorre and Sydney Greestreet…one of my very favorite pairings.
