Name the pre-1970 film

Recommended Posts

Yes, it's "The Window" with Bobby Driscoll as the boy.  Barbara Hale, and Arthur Kennedy were the parents, and Ruth Roman and Paul Stewart played the neighbors.  Bobby Driscoll was a fine child actor.  It's a shame that he had such a short and tragic adult life.

Nice job, Lavender.  You get the thread.

It sounds like "The Big Street" with Henry Fonda and Lucille Ball, many years before they made "Yours, Mine, and Ours".

If you look at the cast of "The Big Street" you will find many future TV stars.  Besides Lucille Ball the cast includes:

Ozzie Nelson, who would go on to star in "The Adventures Of Ozzie And Harriet"

Agnes Moorehead - Endora on "Bewitched"

Ray Collins - Lt. Tragg on "Perry Mason"

George Cleveland - Gramps on "Lassie"

and Hans Conreid - Uncle Tonoose on "The Danny Thomas Show"

It also featured an actor named William T. Orr, who would become head of TV production at Warner Bros. in the late fifties and sixties.  His name would appear in the credits for shows like "Cheyenne", "Maverick" and "77 Sunset Strip".  

Next:  A divorced unemployed man, with a very precocious young daughter, must get a job in order to retain custody of the child.  He gets a job coaching football at a small money strapped Catholic college.

Sorry about that.  They sure do slip out of sight quickly.  You are correct, Lavender.  Sherry Jackson played the daughter.  She was a regular on "Make Room for Daddy" at the time.  Another future TV star, Donna Reed, played a social worker who became John Wayne's love interest. 

Lavender, the thread is all yours.

He thought that the dead man was blackmailing him, but it turns out the man who died wasn't the blackmailer but another criminal who killed the real blackmailer earlier that night.

The "dead" man comes to and tells a cop on the scene that his diamond ring is missing.  He also tells the cop that it was someone from the circus who took it and that he can identify him.

Thanks Princess :)

A man wants to buy back the farm his family once owned, but another man also wants the property. The owner sells it to the man whose family once owned it and the other man is angry and holds a grudge.

Is it I’M NO ANGEL with Mae West?
