"At a British army post in India, native water carrier Gunga Din dreams of becoming a soldier. When the regiment learns that the telegraph wires to one of their outposts have been cut, Sergeants Cutter, MacChesney and Ballantine are sent to investigate. The three sergeants find the compound in the hands of a fiendish band of killers known as the Thugges, members of a fanatic religious order that worships the goddess Kali and has sworn to annihilate the British in India. The sergeants fend off the fanatics' attack, and upon their triumphant return to the post, Ballantine announces that he is foresaking the army to marry Emmy Stebbins and take a job in a tea company. His announcement is met with consternation by his pals, who immediately begin to scheme to keep their buddy in the service. Meanwhile, Gunga Din leads Cutter, who is obsessed with discovering hidden treasure, to a temple of gold, which, they discover, is the holy shrine of the Thugges. As he decoys the Thugges, Cutter sends Gunga Din to the post for reinforcements. MacChesney uses Cutter's dangerous position to trick Ballantine into reenlisting in the rescue mission, and the two ride out, leaving Ballantine's sweetheart behind. The sergeants have misunderstood Gunga Din however, and believing that Cutter is being held captive by priests, arrive with no reinforcements. Captured by the Thugges, the three sergeants watch helplessly as the Scottish troops march in to the fanatics' ambush. Then Gunga Din, imbued with the soldier's spirit, realizes his dream by sounding the bugle to warn the troops, heroically sacrificing his life for his sense of duty. Saved by Gunga Din's warning, the British defeat the Thugges. Later, Ballantine decides that his place is in the army, and Gunga Din is appointed a corporal in the British army and is buried with military honors"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"In the 1890's, the fun-loving and irresponsible Jasper Horn distinguishes himself by being the only man in his small town willing to operate a new electric trolley for his boss, Daniel McGowd. Impressed by Jasper's bravery in the face of threatened mob violence, McGowd invites Jasper and his puritanical wife Jenny to spend a weekend at the McGowd country estate. There Jasper, a notorious ladies man, works his charm on McGowd's young European wife Norma, who eagerly reciprocates his affections, and nine months later, Roger McGowd is born. Ten years later, McGowd orders Jasper and his sickly son Andrew to his house and accuses Jasper of being Roger's father. Fired from his motorman job, Jasper returns to Jenny with plans for a new life elsewhere, but Jenny, always suspicious of her husband, announces that Andrew and she are not going with him. That night, however, Jasper sneaks out with Andrew and travels to Atlantic City, where he is befriended by Madame Talma, an alcoholic astrologer. Jobless and nearly broke, Jasper prepares to return home when a dying Madame Talma wills him her astrology business and transforms him into 'the Great Jasper.' Soon after, Jenny arrives and, while pleasantly surprised by Andrew's improved health, is shocked to discover Jasper's heathen, 'for ladies only' occupation. Once again rejecting Jasper, Jenny opens a boardwalk hot dog stand and takes Andrew with her. Many years later, The Great Jasper is visited by Roger, now a playboy band leader, and his still beautiful widowed mother. When Jenny, who has been softening toward Jasper, sees a drunken Roger and Jasper together, she surmises their relationship and vows to leave Atlantic City. At the same time, Roger seduces Sylvia Bradfield, Andrew's fiancée, and wires Jasper that he is eloping with her. A now sickly and repentant Jasper tries unsuccessfully to stop Roger from crippling Andrew's future, then collapses with grief. After accepting Jenny's forgiveness and blessing, Jasper dies"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"When his brother George, an agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, is killed during a raid on suspected gold thieves, California criminal lawyer Bill Fenwick, whose success as a gangster 'mouthpiece' has brought him dubious notoriety, quits his lucrative practice and joins the Justice Department. Determined to find George's killer, Bill takes a tip from former client Bennie Gray that the gangsters are 're-mining' the stolen gold as ore and investigates a story that the Gold Bar Mine of Quartzburg, Nevada has reopened after a sudden gold strike. In Quartzburg, Bill, who has opened a law office under the name Richard Galt, meets attractive Virginia Selton and, aware that she is connected to the Gold Bar, follows her to Reno one night. There Virginia, who is the sister of George's killer, wounded gangster Edward J. Selton, picks up Dr. Vic Reynolds at the Reno airport. On the highway back to the ranch, Virginia's automobile, which has been sabotaged by Bill, breaks down, and Bill conveniently offers the duo a ride. Attracted to Bill, Virginia allows him to drive to the ranch and introduces him to Jim Plummer and the other gangsters. While Reynolds doctors Selton, Plummer and Bill, who describes himself as a small-town lawyer, play a tense hand of poker. Eager for information, Bill returns to the ranch the next day and soon develops a close relationship with Virginia. Plummer, however, suspects Bill and, overriding Selton's orders to leave him alone, has another gangster shoot at him. When Virginia is wounded instead, Selton, weak with fever, rails against Plummer. Then Bill learns that Virginia is Selton's sister and that the F.B.I. is planning a midnight raid on the ranch. Anxious to protect Virginia, Bill takes her dancing in Reno, where Bennie and a former girl friend unwittingly expose him to the gangsters. Alerted, Plummer decides to flee the ranch and, after tying up Selton, steals the gold. Plummer then takes Virginia hostage, but before he and his men escape, Selton breaks free and confronts them at gunpoint. Sure that Virginia has betrayed him, Selton calls her a 'rat, ' and begins shooting at Plummer. As the surviving gangsters attempt to flee, the police apprehend them, while Bill faces Selton, who finally succumbs to his wounds. His revenge satisfied, Bill comforts Virginia as they drive away from the ranch

After buying a lavish wardrobe on Gerald's expense account, June shows up at Russell's apartment building and, as a drunken Russell watches, pretends to be locked out of the apartment that she has just rented below his.

"After returning to his Greenland village with a slain polar bear, the great Eskimo hunter Aigo chooses Guninana as his wife, and the newlyweds live together happily until two British explorers, Sir Basil Pemberton and his assistant, Michael, arrive in the village. As soon as the white men impress Aigo with a few modern innovations, they ask him to join their expedition to capture live polar bears for the London Zoo. Tempted by a photograph of Sir Basil's smiling daughter Joan, the naive Aigo agrees to participate in the gruelling expedition and says goodbye to a pregnant Guninana. While on board Sir Basil's ship, Aigo learns English and is instructed in the ways of 'civilized' conduct. Soon after their arrival in the far north, Aigo builds a clever trap and, using himself as bait, captures an enormous polar bear, who mauls Aigo's leg in the process. Before he will allow the ship's doctor to operate on his leg, Aigo insists on gazing at Joan's photograph. Later, while listening to Joan send her father greetings during a Christmas radio broadcast from London, Aigo faints in a trance. When asked about his fainting spell, Aigo explains that, while making a spiritual voyage, he had seen Joan in London, and that earlier, her spirit had helped him to catch the polar bear. Aigo then asks Sir Basil to take him to London to meet Joan in person as payment for his work. In London, Joan, repulsed by his rough manners, remains cool toward Aigo until Sir Basil explains Aigo's belief that she is his old 'spiritual' friend. As a favor to her father, Joan agrees to humor Aigo and begins a patronizing flirtation with him. Eventually, Aigo succumbs to an infection and, while recuperating, catches Joan and her boyfriend embracing. Devastated by his discovery, Aigo collapses and is saved only by Joan's reassurances that his vision was a bad dream. Later, however, Joan gives Aigo a glass of whiskey, and suddenly intoxicated, he makes a forceful sexual advance. In her fury, Joan reveals her deception to Aigo, who is then returned to Greenland. There, Aigo, disillusioned and rejected, wanders into a blizzard and is found nearly frozen by his fellow villagers. Finally, Aigo is reborn by the sight of his young son and by the excitement of a village hunt"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"In Mexicana, Mexico, just over the American border, Dolores, a beautiful cafe singer called 'the Dove, ' attracts the attention of the very rich Don Jose Maria Lopez y Tostado, who brags to her that he is 'the best cabarello [i.e. cabellero?] in all Mexico.' Used to getting what he wants, Don Jose is at first surprised by Dolores' rejection of his advances and her talk of a jealous, gun-slinging sweetheart. Determined to conquer the virgin, Don Jose, who lives on an enormous southern hacienda, plans a party in her honor at the cafe. Although Dolores' sweetheart is an invention of convenience, Johnny Powell, a craps table dealer at a neighboring gambling house, quickly wins the singer's heart in earnest. To protect Dolores, Johnny proposes that they cross the border before the party and marry. Dolores agrees, but that night, Johnny is trapped in a murder frame-up devised by Don Jose. After Johnny is jailed, Dolores uses her savings to bribe the jailer and arrange for Johnny's escape. Shortly before the appointed hour, however, Don Jose offers the jailer an even bigger bribe to shoot Johnny as he makes his escape. When Dolores hears of Don Jose's plan, she offers herself to him in exchange for Johnny's life. Don Jose accepts the exchange, and after coldly rejecting the now free Johnny, Dolores leaves with Don Jose for his hacienda. On the way there, Dolores tries unsuccessfully to take a suicide pill, which further baffles the egotistical millionaire. Then Johnny shows up with a gun, and after a fight with Don Jose, is rearrested and sentenced to immediate execution by his powerful rival. As the police prepare to shoot Johnny, Dolores accuses Don Jose of ungentlemanly cowardice. Struck by Dolores' impassioned plea, Don Jose gives in with a laugh and grants Johnny and Dolores their freedom, having proved that he is, in fact, the 'best cabellero in all Mexico'"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"Newspaper reporter Joe Ryan and District Attorney Thomas Redwine make a deal whereby Joe will have access to jailed actress Judy Allen in exchange for help on a tough racketeering case. By promising that she and her chorus girl friends, who were picked up during a nightclub raid, will be freed from jail, Joe persuades Judy to use her acting skills to impersonate a fortune-teller in an undercover operation. With assistance from ventriloquist Kitty, Judy, becomes 'Haidee, ' a fortune-teller working out of a shop that is lined with hidden cameras and microphones. Shortly after opening for business, Buzzell, a phony private detective, shows up demanding 'protection' money. In the meantime, Joe's close friend, Phoebe Sawyer, a very wealthy widow, is talked into visiting 'Marvin, the Sightless Seer' by her maid. Unaware of the tricks that he is using to obtain information, the usually skeptical Phoebe is impressed by Marvin's apparent ability to 'see' her life. While Marvin and his cohorts, lawyer Ray Taylor and financier Lionel Whitmore, plot to send Phoebe to a remote island and steal her fortune, Joe sets himself up as a fortune-telling dupe. Under an assumed name, Joe buys phony mining stock from a crooked securities company, saying that Haidee had sent him. Later, with Buzzell as his witness, Joe accuses Haidee of fleecing him. Although Buzzell falls for the ruse, Jenner, his immediate boss, becomes suspicious and has his henchmen, Dummy and Slim, take Joe 'for a ride.' Joe is saved by the police, but Redwine, realizing that the [thugs'] lawyer, Ray Taylor, will demand a writ of habeas corpus, decides to incarcerate them temporarily in a mental asylum. In the meantime, Whitmore hires a forger to sign Phoebe's name to papers that give Taylor power of attorney over her assets. When Joe finally hears of Phoebe's sudden voyage, however, he tells her the truth about Marvin and asks her to join the investigation. Whitmore, believing that Phoebe has sailed, has Marvin murdered and orders Taylor to liquidate her bank accounts. While Dummy and Slim are released to trap Whitmore, Phoebe confronts Taylor, who is arrested by Redwine. Judy and Kitty are kidnapped by Whitmore and taken to Phoebe's, where they eventually are found and rescued by Joe and the police"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"When he is hypnotized by his manipulative manager Ollie, circus performer Pete Pepper transforms himself from a timid bumbler who fears horses into 'the world's greatest bareback rider.' Impressed by Pete's riding act, ranch owner Hattie Martindale begs Ollie to enter Pete in an obstacle horse race that she and rival rancher, Colonel Bixby, sponsor annually. Although he has promised Pete a vacation, Ollie accepts Hattie's proposition, which includes a $1,000 prize, and whisks his unsuspecting charge to the Martindale ranch. Soon after his arrival, Pete meets Bixby's entrant in the race, Chief Dog in the Manger, a fierce Indian, who is also a longtime admirer of Rosie, Hattie's dim-witted granddaughter. When the chief, also known as Willie, senses that Pete and Rosie are becoming romantically attached, he threatens Pete repeatedly with a knife.

"Charlie Dugan is the 'fixer' for the Barvin Circus, a fast-talking diplomat who spends most of his time smoothing out arguments with local sheriffs and patrons, as well as patching up internal difficulties among the show's personnel. One such difficulty involves the future of little Terry, whose mother, a high-wire artist, has fallen to her death. Dugan suggests the orphan be put in a foster home, but Terry objects, and when the sheriff takes her away for lack of supervision, Adgie Moreno, a circus lion tamer who feels guilty because she had feuded with Terry's mother before her death, lies to the judge and says she is the girl's mother. Soon after she is adopted into the circus family, Terry overhears Darlow, a representative from their rival circus, and his strongman talk about repossessing Adgie's lions, which they claim Adgie had sold to them according to a contractual agreement. Rushing to warn Adgie, Terry risks her life by entering the lions' cage in the middle of a performance, and is scolded by Adgie for her foolishness. However, because Barvin loved Terry in the act, he instructs Adgie to use her in the future. When Darlow shows up again, Dugan invalidates the ill-gotten contract by crossing the state line, but Darlow retaliates by filing a complaint about Barvin's underaged performer. To everyone's astonishment, Terry is taken to the Marysville Kansas Home for Children, where she is put under the care of superintendent Fletcher. Later, Adgie misses Terry so much that she gets Barvin to re-route the circus so that they can pass through Marysville. The circus troop puts on a performance at the orphanage and after they leave, Terry emerges from a basket in the back of their truck. Adgie admits her complicity in the abduction, but the circus continues nevertheless. Meanwhile, Dugan manages to trick Darlow into selling back the lions. When some of the lions are let loose, Adgie risks her life to save Terry, who had become trapped by the lions. When Mrs. Fletcher learns about Adgie's act of courage, she suggests that she file for adoption again, hinting at the fact that her case may be reconsidered"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"Immediately upon his release from prison, confidence artist Major Manning recruits his cohorts for a stock market scam involving a gold mine he had won gambling with a rich cellmate. Sure that the new scheme is arrest-proof, Manning then talks former gang member Steven Dorsey, who has 'retired' to the country with his wife Nancy, into joining the operation. To secure the necessary capital, Dorsey tries to convince Nancy that the deal is legal and worthy of a $50,000 loan from their joint bank account by claiming that 'Wall Street Winthrop' has endorsed the stock. Ever suspicious, Nancy insists upon meeting 'Winthrop, ' thus forcing Steven to comb the city for a willing dupe named Winthrop. Eventually the gang produces Malcolm J. Winthrop, the wide-eyed financial editor of a Yonkers newspaper, whom they 'hire' as the president of their new company, 'the House of Winthrop Investments.' Convinced by Malcolm, Nancy gives Steven the money, and veteran solicitors begin selling the 'Golden Dream' stock over the telephone.
