Olive Films have added four more titles to their July slate: James Edward Grant's Angel and the Badman (1947), Delbert Mann's That Touch of Mink (1962), Otto Preminger's One Man Mutiny a.k.a The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell (1955), and Budd Boetticher's Bullfighter and the Lady (1951).
Produced by John Wayne, this semi-autobiographical film directed by the great Budd Boetticher tells the story of a Broadway producer and sportsman Johnny Regan who travels to Mexico where he
takes up bullfighting to impress the local beauties, but instead learns to respect the sport. Starring Robert Stack, Joy Page, and Gilbert Roland.
It is the end of WW1 - and the birth of aerial warfare. Though airplanes had only been used for reconnaissance, Brigadier General Billy Mitchell has foreseen their deadly power and importance in future combat as bombers and fighter planes. But his superiors in the Army Air Service are blind to his prophecy. When Mitchell begins his campaign to build an armed air force against their will, they brand him a traitor and summon him for court-martial. Although the Army attempts to cover up the trial, it becomes an explosive media event that explores the self-serving incompetence of the military and how one man's vision can serve to shape history. Starring Gary Cooper, Charles Bickford, Rod Steiger, Ralph Bellamy, and Elizabeth Montgomery.
Love arrives with a splash when a handsome and eligible tycoon (Cary Grant) and a beautiful working woman (Doris Day) meet over a curbside mud puddle. He's enchanted by her small town ways; she's captivated by his romantic, debonair manner. But when it comes to marriage, they have decidedly different views - she wants it and he doesn't! What ensues is a game of cat-and-mouse as each tries to win the other - with hilarious and heartwarming results. Starring Cary Grant, Doris Day, Gig Young, Audrey Meadows, and John Astin.
When Quirt Evans (John Wayne) is wounded outside the home of a Quaker family, he is taken in and nursed back to health, with particular attention paid to him by their sheltered yet attractive daughter. Evans is enticed by the family's pacifist ways, but his outlaw past soon catches up with him. This is the first Western made by John Wayne in the role of producer, after the studio set him up with his own production company. Starring John Wayne, Gail Russell, Harry Carey, Bruce Cabot, and Irene Rich.
