What a list. I'm actually a fan of the 1934 *Great Expectations*. OK, I know that David Lean's talky, literary later version is the favorite; but the '34 version has its merits. Though I must say, although I always like Rafaela Ottiano, she is rather miscast as Mrs. Joe Gargery!

I've seen and/or have copies of 23 of them (roughly, as it's hard to keep track of which of the Buck Jones and Ken Maynard westerns I've seen).

But I want to see ALL of the rest of these on your list.

THE BLACK CAT

IMITATION OF LIFE

Thought I had seen HALF A SINNER, but turns out that I saw the 1940 film with that title...

So two...and I consider myself I pretty nutty old movie fan...sad that we really haven't had a chance to see most of these...I wonder how many ever ran on AMC back when it didn't suck???

The music in "Wake Up and Dream" was good, not great. What will snag your attention are the absolutely awful production values. It looked like sets from a high school play. I got it on a double bill with "Moonlight and Pretzels", which I also enjoyed.

I will adjust my previously posted count of 23 to 20 to omit the westerns that I had originally counted. As much as I do enjoy them, especially Buck Jones, it can be hard to keep track sometimes of which I've seen without cross-checking supporting casts and plot summaries.

So these are what I know I have seen and / or have copies of:

 

Affairs of a Gentleman

The Black Cat

Bombay Mail

By Candlelight

The Crosby Case

Cross Country Cruise

Gift of Gab

Glamour

Great Expectations

I Give My Love

I'll Tell the World

Imitation of Life

Little Man What Now

Midnight

Million Dollar Ransom

Myrt and Marge

One More River

The Poor Rich

There's Always Tomorrow

Wake Up and Dream
