If Ninotchka or Captain Blood or Random Harvest are among your favorite films, you’ll be right at home! In addition to discussing the films, we will also talk about the scores and the wonderful composers of the era.

The feature film for July is Red Dust (1932)! According to Rotten Tomatoes, “When Earthy prostitute Vantine (Jean Harlow) arrives at Dennis Carson’s (Clark Gable) rubber plantation in Indochina, she initiates a steamy affair with the rugged foreman, but is sent packing when the passion cools. Soon Dennis is joined by new employee Gary (Gene Raymond) and his classy but high-strung wife, Barbara (Mary Astor), who falls into Dennis’ arms while her husband is away. When Vantine returns, Dennis must decide between the refined adulteress and the tramp with the heart of gold.
