Jerome Herman Dean, son of an Arkansas sharecropper, became a Hall of Fame pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals. The legendary Gas House Gang of the early 1930s was notorious for pulling stunts, clowning around, and playing some really hard-nosed baseball, and 'Dizzy' Dean fit right in.

"A story of a man's search for the illegitimate son he had abandoned 20 years previously. ... After 20 years, Cagney, now a selfmade big wheel in steel, casts off business affairs to look for the son he had denied when young. The search brings him to Miss Stanwyck's [adoption home] and what looks like a blind alley when she refuses to disclose the adopting parents. While she fights him successfully in court, the association with her and her charges, particularly Miss Keim [playing a teenager awaiting the birth of a child], plus a meeting with his son now on the very edge of manhood, convinces Cagney of the futility of trying to intrude"--Variety review, July 25, 1956

"In the year 1802, the infant Republic of Haiti, barely a year old, found itself tottering. It had won its freedom from the French while Napoleon was engaged elsewhere, but now the Master of Europe had turned his eye and his might against them, and all that opposed Napoleon was an ex-slave, Toussaint l'Ouverture, with a tiny nation wracked by factions and keyed to hysteria by the constant beat of jungle drums. On February 6th of the year 1802, Napoleon's fleet under the command of General Leclerc sailed into Cap François, and after months of rumblings, the volcano that was Haiti finally erupted. In the weeks that followed, Toussaint and his men withdrew into the mountains, wetting the scorched fields of their homeland with the blood of the Emperor's army. But while their troops sought a deadly and elusive enemy, glamorous Pauline, the sister of Napoleon, and her consort, Leclerc, strove to create a new Paris in Cap François." "Narrative picks up Robertson, an American lawyer from Baltimore, arriving in French-held Haiti to gain the signature of one Lydia Bailey to a document which will transfer a fortune to the United States. He makes his appearance just as the Ameircan consul is hurriedly packing to leave the island, since hostilities between the French and the Negroes momentarily is expected. Within the first few minutes of arrival, Robertson finds himself involved in the dissension, a little Negro boy carrying his bag killed and he himself knocked out by one of the top revolutionaries, William Marshall, known as King Dick. Dick, high up in the rebel forces, helps him reach the plantation where he can find Lydia Bailey, the ward of Charles Korvin, a French officer. Resultant footage delves into voodooism, attacks by the blacks upon white-held plantations, Robertson saving Lydia Bailey from massacre, and later efforts of the French to lure Toussaint l'Ouverture, leader of the blacks, into a false truce so he may be seized"--Variety review, May 28, 1952
