The Cheat (1931), a remake of the 1915 C.B. DeMille silent, is a racy (for its time) melodrama about a socialite who loses big money by gambling. Tallulah Bankhead, Harvey Stephens star. "Merrily We Go to Hell" (1932) follows an alcoholic playwright (Fredric March) who shatters his marriage vows. With Adrianne Allen, Sylvia Sydney, and Cary Grant. On a "Hot Saturday" (1932), Nancy Carroll loses her job over rumors connecting her to Grant and Randolph Scott. With Lili Bond, Edward Woods. A sullied "Torch Singer" (1933) looks for redemption on a children's radio show. Claudette Colbert, David Manners star. A killer tries to destroy the famous "Earl Carroll's Vanities" Broadway stage show, in "Murder at the Vanities" (1934). Victor McLaglen, Kitty Carlisle star. Con men peddling a fitness magazine conduct a "Search for Beauty" (1934) that turns up Buster Crabbe and Ida Lupino, among other Olympic athletes showing the kind of skin the Production Code would later frown upon. With Robert Armstrong, Gertrude Michael. 7 3/4 hrs. total on three discs.
