This spot is going to be about all the films I own and love to watch. If you're interested in classic films, serials, and shorts from silents up through the 40s and 50s, and classic TV, keep visiting and posting your comments. I might also be writing about some newer releases now and then, like remakes, but the focus will be on the classics.

On Screen -- Safe in Hell (1931)
"Safe in Hell" is a nice little Pre-Code film about a prostitute named Gilda who is on the run after believing she committed a murder. She's then smuggled on board a ship by her returning sailor boyfriend, and soon-to-be husband, and taken to an island in the Caribbean where the laws of extradition don't apply. Here the story continues when Gilda tries to remain true to her husband while he is back off to sea to earn money to support her, and she is trying to fend off the cutthroats and criminals who inhabit the island and who are constantly trying to seduce her. The story has a couple of plot twists thrown in for good measure and a pretty good ending so I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
