THE MATING GAME
1959, Warner Bros., 96 min, Dir: George Marshall

Uptight IRS agent Tony Randall shows up on a family farm to collect some back taxes but finds his job unexpectedly complicated by farmer's daughter Debbie Reynolds. Before long he's falling for the young woman in this glorious Cinemascope comedy (featuring a title song sung by Reynolds).


CLASH BY NIGHT
1952, Warner Bros., 105 min, USA, Dir: Fritz Lang

Director Fritz Lang adds plenty of sizzle to Clifford Odets’ play about a love triangle in a coastal town. A wash-out in New York, Barbara Stanwyck returns home to Monterey, where fisherman Paul Douglas takes a shine to her - but she’s a lot more compatible with cynical film projectionist Robert Ryan. Marilyn Monroe charms in a small role as a cannery worker smitten with Stanwyck’s brother.
