Independent distributors Olive films have added three more films to their August slate: Mitchell Leisen's Captain Carey, U.S.A. (1950), starring Alan Ladd, Wanda Hendrix and Francis Lederer, Leo McCarey's My Son John (1952), starring Robert Walker, Helen Hayes and Van Heflin, and Don Siegel's Private Hell 36 (1954), starring Ida Lupino, Steve Cochran and Howard Duff. Exact technical specs and region coding status for these releases are unknown at the moment.
Captain Carey, U.S.A.
Webb Carey (Ladd) returns to Orta, near Milan, to find out who betrayed his World War II O.S.S. team and caused the death of several villagers. His old love Julie (Hendrix), whom he thought dead at the hands of the Nazis, is alive and married to the Barone.
My Son John
Filled with the kind of Red Scare propaganda that must have delighted members of McCarthy's House Un-American Activities Committee, this drama chronicles the attempts of two All-American parents to save their son from the temptations of Communism. Unfortunately, they are too late.
Private Hell 36
Two LA detectives get in over their heads when they get involved with a nightclub singer who holds the key to the missing loot from a New York elevator robbery. Once they find the money, they are tempted to keep it and betrayal and corruption come to run the order of things.
