Day #21,566

Movie #1533: Boys Of The City (1940, Joseph H Lewis)

Another embarrassment for a great director just starting out and forced to direct Z-grade material. I realize that this is a kids' movie but even kids ain't dumb enough to fall for junk like this. Especially liked the negro/watermelon joke: had me rolling on the floor.
And this ain't even a Bowery Boys movie. It's the East Side Kids so that means no Huntz Hall.

Movie #1534: Sway (2006, Miwa Nishikawa)

The tale of two brothers. They couldn't be more different. One is kind of a jerk and the other is kind of a dullard.
Well made drama using a murder trial where one is the defendant and the other is the witness.
