TARZAN AND HIS MATE (dir: Cedric Gibbons, Not Rated) - Bart says, "There's all sorts of Tarzan out there, ranging from silent versions to Bo Derek to Disney, and all points in between. But this Tarzan is the one to beat. And no one ever will. It's super sexy, with a memorable nude bathing scene (tastefully immoral, Pre-Code style) and lots of exciting animal action. This is the second film with Johnny Weissmuller as everybody's favorite Tarzan, and deals mainly with how Jane (Maureen O'Sullivan) has gotten along after living a year in the jungle with her ape-man. Eventually, of course, some stupid white colonialist types enter the picture to ruin all the fun and disrespect elephants. At least Tarzan gets to ride a rhinoceros."
THE GAY DIVORCEE (dir: Mark Sandrich, Not Rated) - Bart says, "Like most fans of the genre, most of my favorite musicals are from the 50s - the height of the lavish, MGM-style production. But there are also countless 50s musicals that are total bores and impossible to sit through. If I have to watch a run-of-the-mill musical, make it one from the 30s. They're down and dirty and almost totally insubstantial (other than the Depression-era escapist subtext of most), but the tendency to turn dancing bodies into abstract designs (a la Busby Berkeley) and the superiority of 30s pop music to 50s pop music sells me every time. And central to the 30s musical are Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, whose exhilarating dancing and sophisticated repartee make their films together the most consistently entertaining in the genre. If I prefer THE GAY DIVORCEE to TOP HAT (their most popular), it's because I saw it first, and it's the first where the pair have top-billing, so it sets the formula that the rest follow to one degree or another. Most importantly, in it Astaire gets to sing the definitive version of Cole Porter's Night and Day, the greatest song ever written."
L'ATALANTE (dir: Jean Vigo, Not Rated) - Bart says, "Have you heard of Jean Vigo? He's probably the most famous filmmaker to make only one full-length feature film. Dead at 29, he was revered by the French New Wave auteurs as much for the romantic tragedy of a brilliant career cut short as for his poetic films which combined an almost documentary-like realism with touches of the surreal. L'ATALANTE involves the marriage of a cargo ship captain to a simple country girl and the difficulties that arise from her living with an all-male crew and experiencing the pleasures of city-life for the first time."
