A little boy's vivid imagination gets him in trouble when he insists any number of wild tales... but when he witnesses an actual murder, the only adults who take him seriously are the killers!
The Window is another in the long line of RKO post-war crime dramas, and has long been a "hidden treasure" amongst noir fans. RKO borrowed Bobby Driscoll from Disney (he was about to star in Treasure Island); the grownups include Barbara Hale, Arthur Kennedy, Paul Stewart, and Ruth Roman. (74 min. / B&W / 1.37:1)
Also on the Program
For the kiddies, a pair of cartoons: Popeye is back in the Navy in A Hull of a Mess, and Daffy Duck stars in our our Looney Tunes, The Wise Quacking Duck.
This week's TravelTalks takes us to Rural Mexico; Red Nichols and his World Famous Pennies adorn our Vitaphone stage; and our leading lady may or may not have extracted herself from the famed Republic woody flying over a cliff in the "Unknown Peril", the eleventh electrifying episode of Nyoka and the Tigermen!
Also tonight, in honor of the new Stan and Ollie film debuting in Sacramento this weekend, we've got Towed in a Hole, one of their funniest short subjects, making its HD debut on our show!
In the weeks to come, look for more noir, thrillers, crime dramas, and movies so special we don't even know what they are yet. Plus Nyoka, Popeye, Looney Tunes & Merrie Melodies, and more, more, more!
