Overview

Synopsis

Cheers of the Crowd
Although Monogram Pictures hadn't yet reorganized as a separate entity in 1936, a few of its releases still managed to make their way to the public through the auspices of Republic. One of these was The Cheers of the Crowd, in which character actor Russell Hopton heads the cast as public-relations expert Lee Adams. Our hero gets in on the ground floor of the chain-letter craze, all the while battling over ethics with pretty female reporter Mary (Irene Ware). Things take a sinister turn when the recipient of a chain letter is murdered, a crime tied in with the long-lost wife of the film's villain. Corpulent Harry Holman, best known to modern viewers as the high-school principal in Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life, steals the film as the misleadingly named "Honest John." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Cheating Blondes
A typically pedestrian whodunit from low-budget entrepreneur Larry Darmour, Cheating Blondes delivered a lot less than the titillating title promised. Thelma Todd played a dual role, twin sisters Anne and Elaine. When the former is caught with the dead body of her lecherous next-door neighbor (Brooks Benedict), she switches places with her look-alike twin, a burlesque dancer. Why the switch would help protect her from a murder rap is never explained, but after a bit of confusion, the real killer is made to confess and both Anne and sister Elaine settle down with their respective spouses (Milton Wallis and Earl McCarthy). ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
