"In Skagway in the Yukon, in 1900 during the gold rush, prospector Jack Thornton plans to return to his hometown of Chicago but loses all his money in a card game. 'Shorty' Hoolihan, a New Yorker just released from jail after a six-month sentence for tampering with the mail, tells Jack about a letter he read that was sent by an ill prospector, Martin Blake, just before he died to his son John in San Francisco, which contained a map showing the location of a gold mine. Shorty has drawn the map from memory, and although he concedes that it may be faulty in spots, he talks Jack into becoming his partner after telling him that John Blake and his wife left Skagway that day in search of the mine. While buying a dog team, Jack and Shorty encounter a wealthy, sadistic English prospector, Mr. Smith, who wants to buy an untamed St. Bernard named Buck, so that he could shoot him. Jack, who admires the dog, buys him instead, and although Buck runs away once he is freed on the trail, he returns at night in the whirling snow and curls up beside Jack. After they come across Blake's wife Claire surrounded by wolves, she explains that Blake has been gone two days searching for food. Believing that Blake is dead, Jack forces Claire to come with them to Dawson. He and Claire grow fond of each other on the trail, and at Dawson, Claire agrees to become partners with them to find the gold. Although they need money to buy an outfit, Jack, after having lost most of their provisions crossing a river, refuses to sell Buck to Smith; however, after Jack gets drunk and brags that Buck can pull a sled loaded with 1,000 pounds 100 yards, Smith wagers $1,000 against Buck that he cannot. Jack accepts and Buck barely succeeds before he collapses in Jack's arms. As they leave Dawson, Blake, unknown to them, is brought in barely alive. At night, Jack pensively stares at Claire by the fire and explains his acceptance of the 'law of the Klondike' (if there is something you need, you grab it) which Claire does not accept. Soon they find the gold, and Shorty is sent to file a claim. As the winter approaches, Buck is tempted by the call of nearby wolves, while Jack and Claire, alone in an isolated cabin, acknowledge and consummate their love. Meanwhile, Blake leads Smith to the gold. When they find the cabin, Smith orders one of his men to knock out Blake. Smith then takes the gold from Jack and Claire at gunpoint but dies with his men when their canoe overturns in rapids and the gold weights them down. After Buck finds Blake, Jack carries him to the cabin, where he and Claire nurse him to health. Although Jack tells Claire that he is keeping her, he relents after she explains that although she loves him, Blake needs her and that she lives by a different law than Jack. After the Blakes leave, Buck joins the wolves and becomes a father, and Jack is left alone for the winter, but in the spring, Shorty returns with an Indian woman, whom he won in a crap game, to be their cook"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"Calvert University decides to improve the football team in order to attract more money to the school's coffers. Although the head of the school, Dr. Phillip Sargeant, is opposed to the action, the board hires Coach Gore, whose teams never lose but whose methods are a little shady. Gore brings in three new athletes, Buck Weaver, Matthews and Petrowsky, offering them money and signing them up for easy courses they are guaranteed to pass. Phil Sargeant, Dr. Sargeant's son, is the last member of Gore's 'Four Aces.' He is an outstanding player but he is even more interested in chemistry. While Gore is busy training his team and meeting with reporters, his wife Claire is lonely and feels abandoned. Buck flirts with her, but she isn't interested. When Phil does not complete his chemistry exam, but passes it anyway, he is angry about the dishonesty involved. Realizing that football is interfering with his studies, he quarrels with Gore and quits the team. Finally Claire, thinking that Gore is seeing other women, calls up Buck and goes to dinner with him. Gore happens to see them in the restaurant and kicks Buck off the team and Claire out of the house. The team starts losing and the chemistry department is threatened by the loss of funds. During the last big game, which Calvert must win, the team is behind twenty to nothing. Claire sweet talks Buck into playing and Phil also joins the game in order to save his beloved chemistry department. The Four Aces are back together, and Calvert wins in the last quarter. Claire and Gore are reconciled when he insists that he is going to quit football and devote himself to Claire, but when another school makes him a terrific offer, Claire accepts the position for him"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"Regi Allen, a New York manicurist who was reared in poverty, is determined to marry a wealthy man. She becomes the favorite manicurist of Savoy-Carleton Hotel client Allen Macklyn, a former aviator now confined to a wheelchair because of a flying accident. Regi soon becomes the only bright spot in Allen's life, but he never tells her that he has fallen in love with her. Meanwhile, Regi meets Theodore Drew III, the nutty scion of a wealthy family that lost all their money in the 1929 stockmarket crash. Ted and Regi go out on a date and he becomes drunk, and she does not learn until later that evening that he is engaged to marry Vivian Snowden, the daughter of the 'pineapple king.' Unable to awaken Ted from his drunken stupor, Regi allows him to sleep on her couch that night, but finds him still there when she returns home after work the next day. Ted has missed a boat sailing for Bermuda, on which his future father-in-law had bought him a berth to keep him out of the way until the wedding. Regi allows him to stay with her, because he has no money, and they slowly fall in love, despite the fact that both are determined to marry for money. To maintain his good favor with his fiancée, Ted calls Vivian, while Regi pretends to be a Bermuda telephone operator. She interrupts so many times that she and Ted have to hang up because they are laughing so hard. When Vivian tries to get the Bermuda operator back, she finds out that the call was from New York. Finally, Ted and Regi have their last night together and, although they both admit they are in love, Regi insists that unless Ted marries for money, he will hate her within six months. After having private detectives determine the identity of Ted's girl friend, Vivian books a room at the Savoy-Carleton Hotel, and asks to see Regi. Unimpressed with her, Vivian decides to take Ted back. He, however, finally realizes how much he loves Regi when he decides he would be willing to get a job and marry her, rather than live in luxury with Vivian. Vivian releases him from their engagement, and he rushes to Allen's apartment, where Regi has just been sobbing. Allen leaves to allow Regi and Ted to talk, even though he had bought an engagement ring and was planning to propose to Regi. He is happy for her, however, and she and Ted make up and decide to marry that day. On the top of a doubledecker bus, they toss a coin to see if they will first eat lunch or marry. Ted flippantly remarks that if the coin lands on edge, he will get a job. The coin falls off the bus entirely, so they stop the bus and run through traffic to retrieve it. The coin has landed on its edge, and they kiss, oblivious to the traffic jamming up behind them"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
