Barbara Stanwyck initiates a roving game of cat and mouse, or a game of very big cat and Robert Ryan.

In conjunction with the LUMIÈRE publication of the free downloadable e-book "Allan Dwan: A Dossier," we present a new video series, An Allan Dwan Serial. The serial is a continuous selection of clips from the career of the one and only Allan Dwan, an engineering director whose broad filmography connects in beautiful and unexpected ways.
