Movie Rewatch: Let Us Live (1939, John Brahm)
This one looked awfully familiar - I'd seen it just 3 years ago! Henry Fonda is happy-go-lucky until they convict him of a crime he didn't commit and lock him up on death row. That makes him grouchy!
Movie #1771: Make-Out With Violence (2008, Deagol Brothers)
It's a kid's movie. Would kids like it? The producers think so: they've thrown every possible thing that could possibly appeal to teens into this one. It's a mess!

You never know what you'll find if you look way in the back of the Netflix closet.
Here we have another "fiction" film without a plot. Normally, those are called documentaries. This one would have been much better as a documentary. The credits admit that the film was based on the lives of the performers in the film. So, why not go all the way and tell the truth?
Movie #1773: Seven Were Saved (1947, William H Pine)
Watched this one because Maxwell Shane was the scriptwriter. This guy has written/directed some fine crime dramas before. However, this is just a rescue at sea film with cast of characters in a lifeboat interacting with each other. OK but nothing special.
