My Man Godfrey
In the depths of the Depression, a party game brings dizzy socialite Irene Bullock to the city dump where she meets Godfrey, a derelict, and ends by hiring him as family butler. He finds the Bullocks to be the epitome of idle rich, and nutty as the proverbial fruitcake. Soon, the dramatizing Irene is in love with her 'protege'...who feels strongly that a romance between servant and employer is out of place, regardless of that servant's mysterious past. IMDb
The Bashful Bachelor
Lum Edwards is annoyed with his partner in Pine Ridge's Jot-'em-Down general store, Abner Peabody, because Abner has swapped their delivery car for a racehorse. Lum is also too timid to propose to Geraldine, so he involves Abner in a "rescue" effort which nearly gets both of them killed. They try again, and this time Geraldine is impressed. Lum writes a proposal note, but Abner, by mistake, delivers it to the Widder Abernathy, who has been ready to remarry for years. This puts Lum in a peck of trouble until the sheriff appears with the Widder's long-gone and hiding husband. IMDb

Raiders of Old California (1957) 72 min.
10:50 P.M. and 1:50 A.M.
Raiders of Old California has everything to love about a B Western. There's plenty of action, with hombres biting the dust by the score, and an over the top performance by Jim Davis as the chief outlaw. And it's chock-full of those errors that makes watching these films such a hoot. Even though the story is supposedly set in 1840s and 1850s California, the land grant being fought over is supposedly "from the Pecos to the Rio Grande and north to Santa Fe", placing the setting solidly in Texas and New Mexico. All the uniforms are post-Civil War, and the weapons are Colt .45s and Winchester repeaters, weapons developed in the 1870s. The guns of course never run out of bullets, and even the "wild" cattle are domestic Herefords. Even the Comanches are misplaced, since they never made California their home.
But what's not to like about a film that has more than enough ridin', fightin', and shootin', and Marty Robbins cast against type as a vicious killer.
Raiders is the B Western at its best.
Starring: Lee Van Cleef, Marty Robbins, Faron Young
