Synopsis

Casablanca Express
This actioner involves Nazi soldiers hijacking a train carrying England's prime minister. ~ Kristie Hassen, Rovi

A Yank in Libya
PRC's A Yank in Libya is distinguished by some of the oldest, grainiest stock footage ever seen in a mid-1940s film. Once past this aesthetic obstacle, however, the film isn't too bad. Walter Woolf King heads the cast as American war correspondent Mike Malone, on assignment in a papier-mache facsimile of Libya. Malone helps to squash a Nazi scheme to attack a British garrison, earning the everlasting gratitude of heroine Nancy Brooks (Joan Woodbury) and British consol Herbert Forbes (H. B. Warner). Reasonably amusing comedy relief is provided by radio dialectician Parkayarkus, aka Harry Einstein (the father of present-day comic actors Albert Brooks and Bob Einstein). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Cold War Killers
Rival agents from both England and Russia race to gain control of a valuable plane. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Waterfront
A decidedly pre-Around the World in 80 Days Michael Anderson was the director of the British melodrama Waterfront. Robert Newton pulls out all the stops as an embittered, alcoholic sailor who deserts his family, only to return 14 years later. If he was expecting a warm reunion, he was sadly mistaken. Going off on another bender, the sailor pushes the envelope too far, eventually killing an old friend. Richard Burton shows up in a featured role. Based on a novel by John Brophy, Waterfront was released in the U.S. as Waterfront Women. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
