Olive Films have added two more titles to their August slate: Gordon Douglas' Only the Valiant (1951), starring Gregory Peck, Barbara Payton, and Ward Bond, and George Stevens' Penny Serenade (1941), starring Irene Dunne, Cary Grant, and Beulah Bondi.
Gregory Peck is the hard-nosed leader of a rough group of cavalry soldiers, whose by-the-book action alienate the men in his command. The company's dislike for Peck intensifies when he assigns a popular lieutenant to take his place on a dangerous mission: delivering a captured Apache chief across the barren desert to a stronger Army outpost. When the detail is attacked and the lieutenant viciously tortured and killed, the men are convinced that Peck had ulterior motives and pin the death on his shoulders. Revenge looms on the horizon when Peck hand selects a patrol to hold off the avenging Apache chief at a deserted fort nearby. Away from their outpost and the threat of Army investigation, the men who hate Peck most are determined to see him pay... even though their own lives may depend on Peck's survival.
A young couple falls in love while on a trip to Japan, but face tragedy when an earthquake causes June (Irene Dunne) to lose the baby she is carrying. When she and Roger (Cary Grant) return to San Francisco, they consider adoption as an antidote to their now-struggling marriage. Meanwhile, June's favorite records seem to unfailingly chronicle her life throughout this warmly-entertaining drama.
Excited for the movies more than Olive's efforts. Expected both Hannie Caulder and Night of the Grizzly to be better, considering this site's reviews. Can't believe nobody called out the extreme ghosting in Grizzly (like severe color timing error, but it wasn't chroma related). Olive's going to have to start charging Mill Creek prices or doing a better job for me to keep supporting them on anything that isn't an absolute must have/person favorite.
