Overview

Synopsis

The Marines Are Coming
Perhaps Mascot Pictures' The Marines are Coming would have been more credible had it been made 10 years earlier. Stars William Haines, Esther Ralston and Conrad Nagel are game, but all three are a bit long in tooth for their characters. In a throwback to his silent films, Haines plays a wise-guy marine, while Nagel is his more-serious best friend. Both men vie for the attentions of cute blonde Ralston, but South-of-the-Border tootsie Armida complicates matters. Everything is resolved after an exciting battle between the U.S. Marines and a gang of Mexican bandits. William Haines retired from films after The Marines are Coming, going on to a highly successful career as a Hollywood interior decorator. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Join the Marines
This service comedy from the Republic Studio mills was perhaps the most aggressively titled of the "Marine Corps" film cycle of the mid-1930s (Come on Leathernecks, Pride of the Marines et. al.) Paul Kelly plays Phil Donlan, a pugnacious ex-cop and ex-Olympic athlete who is run out of New York in disgrace after falsely being accused of drunkenness. The innocent cause of Donlan's woes is pretty Paula Denbrough (June Travis), daughter of a Marine colonel (Purnell Pratt). To ingratiate himself with Paula -- and incidentally, to restore his reputation -- Donlan joins the Corps, where after a grueling training period he earns a commission. Offered a chance to return to the New York police force, Donlan gives it up to re-enlist, and Paula couldn't be happier. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
