HOME TOWN STORY
Blake Washburn (Jeffrey Lynn) is a former politician who blames major manufacturer John MacFarland (Donald Crisp) for his failure to get re-elected, and consequently, he's turned leftist in his new occupation as a journalist. Washburn believes that big business is the enemy and uses his uncle's newspaper—which he's taken over—to campaign his ideas. Only after his kid sister Katie (Melinda Plowman) gets trapped in a tragic cave-in that requires big business technology to get her out does Washburn re-examine his views. Home Town Story is the dramatic portrayal of a daring rescue and one man's quest for the truth—as well as one of Marilyn Monroe's first major roles!
Adapted from W. Somerset Maugham's short story about sex, sin, and salvation, Rain tells the story of prostitute Sadie Thompson (Joan Crawford) who, along with the other passengers aboard a steamer, is let off on the Samoan island of Pago Pago after a small epidemic erupts on board. Sadie immediately attracts the lustful attention of the American soldiers stationed there, but she also draws the genuine affection of Sergeant Tim O'Hara (William Gargan), who at first is unaware of her occupation. Hoping to show Sadie the error of her ways and cleanse her of her sins is Rev. Alfred Davidson (Walter Huston), a Bible thumping preacher resolute in his quest to lead soldiers to salvation. As Rev. Davidson attempts to deliver Sadie from evil, he discovers that he's being led into temptation.
THREE GUYS NAMED MIKE
Airline stewardess Marcy Lewis (Jane Wyman) has her pick between three guys named Mike. First there's science scholar Mike Lawrence (Van Johnson), a part-time bartender; then there's Mike Tracy (Barry Sullivan), a fast-talking advertising exec; and finally, there's Mike Jamison (Howard Keel), a debonair airline pilot. When all three Mikes find out about each other, Marcy is forced to choose between them but discovers that it's going to be a harder job than she thought.
Returning from Chicago to her whistle-stop hometown, Mary (Ava Gardner) rendezvous with her former flame Kenny (George Raft), only to learn that he is still the unmotivated, lazy guy he was when she left for the big city. Turned off by her ex, Mary takes up with successful nightclub owner Lew Lentz (Tom Conway). No love is lost between Lew and Kenny, and soon their bitter rivalry materializes into deadly confrontation.
