Rating: NR    Runtime: 94 min   Release Year: 1948    Director: H.C. Potter

Fed up with crowded big-city living, advertising executive Mr. Blandings (Cary Grant) decides to seek out a big, roomy house in the country. Armed with more enthusiasm than common sense, Blandings causes many a headache for his lawyer/business manager Melvyn Douglas, who tries to keep the costs within a reasonable amount. Alas, Blandings bulls ahead on his own, first purchasing an estate on the verge of collapse, then opting to build his dream house from scratch.

Cast:  Cary Grant; Myrna Loy; Melvyn Douglas; Reginald Denny; Louise Beavers; Sharyn Moffett

Rating: PG-13    Runtime: 105 min     Release Year: 1993     Director:Ivan Reitman

The ghost of Frank Capra must have smiled when he saw Dave, an amusing and effective update of one of Capra's favorite themes -- the scrupulously honest little guy who becomes a force for good against a corrupt system. Dave Kovic (Kevin Kline) runs an employment agency and seems to genuinely enjoy finding work for people who need it. He also bears a striking resemblance to the president of the United States.

Cast:  Kevin Kline; Sigourney Weaver; Frank Langella; Kevin Dunn; Ving Rhames; Ben Kingsley

Rating: PG     Runtime:  107 min  Release Year:  1989  Director: Phil Alden Robinson

"If you build it, he will come." That's the ethereal message that inspires Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) to construct a baseball diamond in the middle of his cornfield. At first, "he" seems to be the ghost of disgraced ballplayer Shoeless Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta), who materializes on the ballfield and plays a few games with the awestruck Ray.

Cast:  Kevin Costner; Amy Madigan; Ray Liotta; James Earl Jones; Burt Lancaster; Timothy Busfield
