Elephant Boy (1937, Robert Flaherty and Zoltán Korda)

This  charming translation of Rudyard Kipling’s “Jungle Book” story “Toomai of the Elephants" is a harmonious mix of the two filmmakers’ styles; Flaherty's adeptness at ethnographic documentary and Korda's taste for grand adventure. The film also served as the breakthrough showcase for the thirteen-year-old Sabu, whose beaming performance as a young mahout leading the British on an expedition made him a major international star. New to me (thanks, TB). Currently streaming on The Criterion Channel.

Lost Horizon (1937, Frank Capra)

A cast of misfits on a small plane suddenly crash land in Tibet. Rescued by an ancient Chinese man, they are led to the beautiful world of Shangri-La. Wise cracks, great cinematography and a poignant message characterize this Capra adventure yarn. Free on tubi. Capra on the film:

One Wonderful Sunday (1947, Akira Kurosawa)

Yuzo and his fiancée Masako spend their Sunday afternoon together, trying to have a good time on just thirty-five yen. They manage to have many small adventures, especially because Masako's optimism and belief in dreams is able to lift Yuzo from his realistic despair.  Though he's my all time favorite director this smaller, unheralded film is one from Kurosawa and his team I have yet to watch. Currently streaming on TCC and free on Plex.
