Lisbon! City of danger, intrigue, suspense, mystery, and romance! Hey, it's on an isthmus, so isthmus be the place to watch it! Atsa some joke, eh, boss?
Ray Milland is a smuggler hired by Claude Rains to ship the most dangerous cargo he's ever carried - stealing an imprisoned American out from behind the Iron Curtain, and the prisoner's wife, Maureen O'Hara, is around to muck things up in this week's Republic Pictures classic (in Naturama and Trucolor!), Lisbon, directed by Mr. Milland himself and actually filmed on location in Portugal, so for once Republic wasn't skimping on the budget. For once.
(90 min. / Trucolor / 2.35:1)
(1956, dir. Ray Milland)

Pete Smith introduces us to The Domineering Male, TravelTalks take us to Where Time Stands Still (sounds like Rancho Cordova to us), it's a "Strange Collision" in the 7th sobering episode of Mysterious Mr. M, plus another go-round of You Axed For It, so get those cards and letters in!
Film noir has been pouring into the Balcony - the old fashioned, B&W kind - and so look for some of that. And this 'n' that. And more of that, as we wrap up the final weeks of our 34th season!
