Because we haven’t had a movie review in a long time.

TCM doesn’t have any clips, trailers or publicity materials for either of these classics, but you can see “Follow the Boys” in its entirety on youtube. This is probably the only movie ever made in which Orson Welles performed a magic act in which Marlene Dietrich is sawed in half.
