Dragonfly Squadron (1954) as Set Construction
A Korean War film with a secondary plot of the training of South Korean pilots, to fly fighters in air defense, by American Air Force instructors,led by Major Brady, a famed and skilled-but-grounded pilot, assigned to the Kongku base. Once there he meets again Donna Cottrell (Barbara Britton), whom he was about to marry a year ago until she learned that she wasn't the widow she thought she was. Her husband (Bruce Bennett), had been a prisoner and wasn't dead, and showed up before the wedding and more or less put a damper on the whole proceedings. He is the base doctor and also keeps a wary eye on his wife and Brady. Not a bad idea considering the short period of grief she went through, after being informed he was dead, before heading for the altar with Brady. But Bruce Bennet, as was par for the course for characters Bennett usually played, does the right thing and gets himself blown up by an enemy bomb (and is certified real dead this time), thereby ensuring the two top-billed players will end up together.
Pride of the Blue Grass (1954) as Set Construction
William (One-Take) Beaudine didn't need more than one take on this film as he had already directed it four or five times in his career, as it had been a staple to be dusted off every three or four years at Monogram/Allied Artists dating back to the days of W. Ray Johnston and Trem Carr. Girl (Vera Miles) owns a horse. Girl hires boy (Lloyd Bridges)as a trainer. Horse (Gypsy Prince)enters a race and is injured. Boy takes job at another stable and is semi-seduced---hey, this is the 1950's and still Monogram hiding behind the Allied Artist moniker---by stable siren (Margaret Sheridan.) Girl rehabilates horse. Girl enters horse in big race. Horse wins. Boy comes back.
