#154 Leo McCarey Ranked List
I was starting to wonder when this was going to bring me one of my Classic Hollywood directors. While McCarey is not a favorite, he did put two in my Top 200. Unfortunately, he also wasn't very prolific, unless I want to marathon a bunch of Laurel and Hardy shorts. There are no glaring omissions, but I want to recharge my cinema batteries.The Kid From Spain
(1932) - I'd heard Eddie Cantor was a popular leading man but obnoxious by modern standards. (And it was Gilbert Gottfried who said it.) I've been wanting to see for myself, so this works.Six of a Kind
(1934) - Speaking of annoying, this has Gracie Allen AND W.C. Fields. It's only and hour and rated pretty highly.
Not watching unless someone can convince me (and I'd be surprised if anyone's even seen these.)
Belle of the Nineties (1934) - Mae West
My Son John (1952) - a Jonathan Rosenbaum selection that's 5.6 on IMDB
Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys! (1958) - cute premise, but only 6.0 on IMDB and the cast (Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Joan Collins, Jack Carson) isn't enough for me.
Satan Never Sleeps (1962) - I like William Holden, but not enough for a low-rated 2+ hour war drama. Besides, drama isn't McCarey's speciality.
