You Can Change the World - 1950

 
 
Hollywood stars moonlight in this short subject with Fr. James Keller of The Christophers in You Can Change the World (1950).  Bob Hope provides the introduction in a comic bit, and the rest of the cast includes Jack Benny, Eddie Rochester Anderson (both also along for laughs), William Holden, Paul Douglas, Loretta Young, Irene Dunne, and Ann Blyth.  Though The Christophers was a Roman Catholic based group, the cast represents a non-denominational aspect to influence  young people to change the world for the better by pursuing careers in public service such as teaching and government work.
 
Above is a press photo.  And here is the link to watch the short on YouTube.

Another Part of the Forest - watch now!

 
Another Part of the Forest (1948) is currently up on YouTube.  This is big.  Go watch this rarely seen movie before it's removed from the site.  Ann stars with Fredric March, Florence Eldridge, Edmond O'Brien, Dan Duryea, and John Dall.

We discussed it here on my Another Old Movie Blog, and in a chapter in Ann Blyth: Actress. Singer. Star.

This explosive drama was written by Lillian Hellman as a prequel to her The Little Foxes. Ann plays a younger version of the character played by Bette Davis. 

If you thought Veda Pierce was bad, have a look at the young and conniving Regina Hubbard...
