November Movies

A slow month. So many other things to watch. Like Auf Wiedersehen, Pet, a bittersweet Brit comedy series from 1983 about three Geordies working construction in Germany. Why Aye Man explained! We learned that Brickies and Chippies are bricklayers and carpenters.

Girl Missing (1933) 11/11 IMDb
A clever little mystery with Glenda Farrell as a goldigger showgirl.

Hi, Nellie! (1934) 11/11 IMDb
Glenda again in one we've seen. Paul Muni as a reporter. A mystery.

Special note! Hi, Nellie! was redone in 1937 as Love Is on the Air starring Ronald Reagan and June Travis. We've seen this one too. June is also a favorite of ours.
