We begin this love-fest with William Dieterle’s Her Majesty, Love (1931-75 min.). Playboy Fred (Ben Lyon) falls for cabaret barmaid Leah (Marilyn Miller), but his family is even more shocked at her father (W.C.Fields), who juggles desserts at a formal dinner. Will the wedding be called off? After a brief intermission, George Archainbaud’s Her Jungle Love (1938-77 min.) whisks us to the South Seas, where downed pilot Bob (Ray Milland) is enchanted with island girl Tura (Dorothy Lamour). But what of Bob’s fiancee, Eleanor (Dorothy Howe)? 2 p.m.
