ANN CARVER’S PROFESSION
(1933, Edward Buzzell) No, not that one. Fay Wray’s a lawyer, and so successful that hubby Gene Raymond, a flop as an architect, hits the sauce, becomes a nightclub crooner, and gets mixed up in murder, with a dénouement guaranteed to enrage feminists. Screenplay by Fay Wray’s future hubby Bob Riskin; they wouldn’t meet for another seven years. 35mm. Approx. 71 min.
THE WOMAN I STOLE
(1933, Irving Cummings) Back in the Moroccan oilfields to steal general manager Donald Cook’s wife Fay Wray, hard-driving engineer Jack Holt finds that triangle getting a fourth side, as native dancer Raquel Torres starts chasing him, while slimy bandit Noah Beery has his eyes on that cash box. “A sure crowd pleaser.” – Ed McGuire. 35mm. Approx. 70 min.
