7 minutes ago, Fading Fast said:

I watched about 20 minutes of it, but then had to work (seemed cute in a cookie-cutter way - I like Frances Dee), so maybe it was woven into the plot and I missed it; otherwise, it's surprising that Hollywood put out a movie where the female lead is nine years older than the male lead - and they're married -  yet the age difference didn't seem to be part of the story. 

It's been awhile since I've seen MEET THE STEWARTS, but if memory serves correctly, the age discrepancy is not part of the plot so we can assume Ms. Dee is probably meant to be playing younger than her actual age.

The film is a cheap Columbia programmer that has its merits. But Holden made a much better family sitcom type film at Paramount called DEAR RUTH, which had a sequel that he appeared in as well, DEAR WIFE. In those pictures, Joan Caulfield was the leading lady.

Note: DEAR RUTH is airing later today on TCM, so check it out!

Fans of "Old School" Science-Fiction and Horror Films will find a treasure trove of gems on The Essential Sci-Fi Channel application. I subscribe to the channel via my Roku streaming device, but the application is available for Apple devices and available on Amazon and Google Play.

To date, I've enjoyed the following flicks:

4=&risl=&pid=ImgRaw&r=0

Visit to a Small Planet, starring Jerry Lewis and based on a hit Broadway play by Gore Vidal (who was royally peeved that Lewis was cast in the role that earned Cyril Ritchard a Tony nomination for Best Actor).

 

0b20f56c140e4b4g647ueorf9.jpg     c1bc8eb899d4ca16a9077dc872fccb10.jpg

The Head, a 1959 West German thriller featuring Michel Simon as the titular disembodied cranium. Simon had earlier appeared in movies directed by distinguished directors such as Marcel Carné, Jean Renoir, and Jean Vigo. How the mighty had fallen! Starring a garishly made up Horst Frank as the mad "Dr. Ood." Original title: Die Nackte und der Satan (Missed opportunity! The title should have been Die Nackte und der Kopf [The Naked and the Head]).

 

586b4afcc64c238172f81a3bf8bc354c.jpg

The similarly themed The Man without a Body, headlined by Robert Hutton and George Coulouris. The latter star portrays a ruthless tycoon with a brain tumor. After witnessing the (you should pardon the expression) heady experiments of Hutton's scientist (experiments that involve bringing a dead monkey's head back to life), the wealthy industrialist arranges to have the head of none other than Nostradamus stolen so that the prophet's brain can be transplanted into his skull. This 1957 British production --  directed by W. Lee Wilder (Billy's brother) -- is one part Frankenstein, one part Donovan's Brain, and one part turkey sandwich.

 

The-Invisible-Ray-1936-poster-2.jpg

The Invisible Ray starring Boris Karloff (billed as KARLOFF) and Bela Lugosi. This 1936 Universal gem was the third pairing of the studio's two Titans of Terror. Lugosi is on the side of the angels this time around, collaborating with French Sûreté to capture Karloff's mad scientist (who glows in the dark and whose touch is death!). The play of expressions on Bela's face as he responds, "They die."  to the police chief's question "And . . . uhh . . . if he touches anyone?" is one of my favorite moments in The Invisible Ray. Among its splendors: the appearance of a cathedral set from The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923) and the spectacular death of Janos Rukh (Karloff).

All movies on The Essentials Science-Fiction Channel (which also offers classic, "B," and Grade Z horror films) can be watched free with ads or can be watched ad-free with a $5.99 monthly subscription. The presentation quality of the movies that I watched was fair, not pristine. But the catalog of movies (including TV shows and serials) offered, for me, is irresistible.
