The Case of the Curious Bride (First National, 1935). Dir Michael Curtiz. Wrt Tom Reed, based on the novel by Erle Stanley Gardner. With Warren William, Margaret Lindsay, Donald Woods, Claire Dodd, Allen Jenkins. (74 min, b&w, 35mm)

with:

Jimmy the Gent (Warner Bros., 1934). Dir Michael Curtiz. Wrt Bertram Milhauser (screenplay), Laird Doyle, Ray Nazarro (story). With James Cagney, Bette Davis, Allen Jenkins, Alan Dinehart, Alice White, Arthur Hohl. (67 min, b&w, 35mm)

Two Michael Curtiz-directed films recently preserved from original nitrate negatives in the Library's United Artists Collection and first shown at the 2007 "Il Cinema Ritrovato" festival in Bologna, Italy. The Case of the Curious Bride , with Warren William as Perry Mason, is a witty and fast-paced whodunit with "the flair and vitality of a Feuillade serial" (Peter von Bagh). In Jimmy the Gent , Cagney gives one of the most breathtaking performances of his career as a fast-talking con-man tracking down heirs of people who have died without leaving behind a will. (ZS)
