Here are four cool Poverty Row movies on two discs, all from PRC Pictures:
DANGEROUS LADY (1941, PRC, aka BEWARE THE LADY) Neil Hamilton, June Storey, Evelyn Brent, Douglas Fowley. Basically a PRC variation on the Thin Man. A detective-lawyer team (also married) tries to clear a female client of a murder rap. Decent script, acting, and music score...what more could you ask from a PRC quickie?
LADY FROM CHUNGKING (1942) Anna Mae Wong, Harold Huber, Mae Clarke. Anna, who hails from a noble Chinese family, is the head of a Guerilla movement against the Japanese. Her foe is a general known as, “The Butcher.’ This, for a PRC quickie, is a pretty intense, and sometimes very brutal film. Wow... Good acting and a a very good script.
TIGER FANGS (1942) Frank Buck. Espionage is on the menu in the steamy jungles of Brazil. Frank's a big-time big-game hunter who travels to Malaya. There he tries to put a stop the Nazis and Japanese who are doing their best to destroy the rubber industry. Jungle excitement and thrills.
A YANK IN LIBYA (1942) H.B. Warner, Walter Wolf King, Joan Woodbury. An American correspondent discovers a scheme by the Nazis to incite Libyan tribes to attack the British. Can he warn the British forces in time? Enjoyable PRC adventure thriller with some attempts at humor thrown in for good measure.
