More interesting presentations from the UCLA Film & TV Archive calendar.

They're doing a series on 1939. What did that year give us other than Gone with the Wind and the Wizard of Oz? And Stagecoach. And Mr. Smith Goes to Washington... And Beau Geste... And The Hunchback of Notre Dame... And Buster Crabbe's Buck Rogers serials... and...

Among the films in the series:
Jesse James (with edgyspice's favorite, Tyrone Power, in the titular role)
Confessions of a Nazi Spy (with George Sanders as an evil Nazi)
The Cat and the Canary (with Bob Hope injecting his schtick into this remake of the silent classic)
