Charlot, operaio in un grande complesso industriale, estenuato dal ritmo frenetico di lavoro, perde la ragione. Ricoverato in una casa di cura, viene dimesso qualche tempo dopo per finire però quasi subito in prigione, a causa di una manifestazione di operai nella quale si ritrova casualmente coinvolto. Durante la detenzione, egli concorre, inconsapevole, a sventare una rivolta di detenuti; ciò gli frutta l' immediata scarcerzione. Una volta libero, riprende la sua dura lotta per sopravvivere: gli è di conforto l' amicizia di una giovane orfana, con cui divide fraternamente la propria casetta e quel po' di cibo che riesce a procurarsi. Quando la ragazza trova lavoro in un cabaret e riesce a far assumere anche Charlot, ai due derelitti sembra schiudersi la prospettiva di un futuro migliore. La polizia, venuta a cercare la ragazza per ricondurla all' orfanotrofio, li costringe però a fuggire dalla città per cercare altrove un po' di tranquillità

Jimmy the gent( Visual )

4 editions published in 1934 in German and English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James Cagney and Bette Davis star as a less-than-scrupulous private detective and the woman he loves, who has just left him for an even less scrupulous employer. Jimmy Corrigan (Cagney) is jealous when his operative and sweetheart, Joan Martin (Davis), goes to work for his seemingly upper-crust rival Charles Wallingham (Alan Dinehart). But Corrigan discovers that Wallingham is just as crooked as Corrigan; he's just better at concealing it. Now, even as Corrigan tricks an eyewitness into marrying a guilty client so she can't testify in court, he must prove Wallingham is a crook to win Martin back. Directed with panache by Michael Curtiz, the result is a fast-paced comic delight, and a superb showcase for the first teaming of its two incandescent stars"--Container

The Teen Agers dally with romance on summer vacation. "Following high school graduation, students Freddie and Roy and their girl friends, Dodie and her sister Betty, travel West with their friend Lee and other classmates to the town of Gulch's Gulch to spend the summer at a ranch inherited by their teacher, Miss Mathilde Hinklefink. Miss Hinklefink and Professor Owen Townley, whom she loves, escort the teenagers, and they arrive in time for a bank robbery. The robbery is blamed on 'Angel Face' Harrigan, who always drank milk, and who disappeared years earlier after reportedly killing the town sheriff. Actually, the murder was committed by real estate agent Sneed, who left Angel Face to perish in the desert and is now the secret leader of a band of outlaws. When Freddie orders milk in the saloon, he is mistaken for Angel Face, and the sheriff sends a posse after him. Meanwhile, at Hacienda Hinklefink, Betty, a bookworm, reads a book about old western heroes and loses interest in Roy. Ranch foreman Big Jim, who is a member of Sneed's gang, makes several unsuccessful attempts to murder Freddie before sending the gang after him. Freddie, however, believes Roy is pulling a hoax and holds up the gang with cap guns, scaring them off. Roy later tells Freddie that his assailants were real gang members, and Freddie recalls hearing a familiar voice among them. In order to identify the voice, Roy, Freddie, Lee, Betty and Dodie invite everyone in town to a square dance. While the town is deserted, Sneed prepares to steal a silver shipment and has Freddie kidnapped so that he will be blamed for the robbery. By singing a sentimental song about mothers, Freddie makes his captors cry, and escapes with Lee and Dodie in time to intercept the silver. En route to the sheriff, Freddie is forced to 'powwow' with an Indian chief because he gave a ring to a pretty Indian girl, who now insists on marrying him. Lee helps Freddie escape to the ranch, where he hands over the silver to the sheriff, and is arrested as Angel Face. Sneed then encourages a public lynching of Freddie, while Roy catches Big Jim escaping in the car containing the silver. As Freddie is about to be hanged, Roy returns with Big Jim, who reveals Sneed's guilt. Although Sneed pulls a gun, Dodie trips him, and he is arrested. The vacation ends happily as the Indian girl befriends a helpless Lee, Roy and Freddie prove to their girl friends that they are real western heroes, and Roy reads a book on the heroines of history. Professor Townley then accepts Miss Hinklefink's marriage proposal"--AFI catalog, 1941-1950
