The Golden Age of Hollywood


We've done many categories since this game started. I announce the current category in the game, but if you can't find the announcement, just ask any of the players.
There's a game I play every chance I get with anyone who knows about movies. It's very simple: we pick a movie category and take turns naming titles of movies that fit in the category. For example, "films with a number in the title," or "films with hospital scenes" or "films with Joseph Cotten." I thought I'd see if anyone here wants to play.

Since there's no way of knowing how many people would want to join in, we can't take turns, so let's do it this way: only name one title at a time and wait for someone else to name one before you go again. The game ends when either we can't think of any more titles, or we reach 50 titles (because I know some people could go on and on way past the point where I would get bored with the category). So please mention the number we're on when you name a title.
It's no fair using IMDB or other sources, but if you run across a title by accident while the game is going on, it's fair to use it.
I'll start, and for the category I choose "films in which a fire occurs" (not a fire in the fireplace). The fire doesn't have to be depicted, just mentioned. This is a hard category for me, because it will mostly be composed of dramas, and I'm more into comedies, but here goes:

38. Rhubarb (1951) It's been a few years since I've been an active member on GAOH and this game, but I'm hoping to get more involved. Here's an entry for this game. This is a baseball movie about a cat who inherits a baseball team. It stars Ray Milland.

Hey Erin! When I saw the name Erin Shaffer, I thought, "Is that THE Erin that used to hang around here?" I'm so glad to see you back! I had heard of the movie "Rhubarb" and knew it was about a cat, but I didn't know Ray Milland was in it. Another one I have to see. Have you seen it?

I have it on DVD! It's a fun one for sure! It's kind of like It Happens Every Spring and Angels in the Outfield. It has that same light-hearted feel to it. Definitely look it up! 

I wondered if it was THE Erin too.  Hi Erin!  How are you?  Long time.  Great you're back!
