Roxie Hart (1942)
A frequently entertaining precursor of "Chicago" with Rogers at her most charming. Let's just say she gives Renee Zellwegger a run for her money.

It takes an exceptionally talentless screenwriter-director to make such a foul, boring, worthless descreation of DeFoe's witty, insightful and entertaining novel, and Densham is that incompetent.

Charade (1963)
An appealing hybrid of romantic comedy and spy thriller. It's one of the best Hitchcock films that Hitchcock had nothing to do with.
