Captain Fury

This is the 1939 film “Captain Fury,” which for some mysterious reason isn’t out on DVD or VHS and is only available on the gray market.

'Captain Fury'
Just to make sure you know we’re in Australia, here are some kangaroos.

  1. I’m going to say a very young Marilyn Monroe in Scudda Hoo Scudda Hay!


  2. B.J. Merholz says:

    Apparently, a double-barraled shotgun, loaded.


  3. Mary Mallory says:

    Martha O’Driscoll?


  4. Don Danard says:

    It looks like Marilyn Monroe in “River of No Return”.


  5. Anne Papineau says:

    Ann Sothern?


  6. Nancy Price says:

    Sally Ann Young


  7. william says:

    Gloria Grahame


  8. Don Danard says:

    Today, I believe it’s George Zucco.


  9. Lee Ann says:

    I’m going to go out on a limb and guess Peggy Cummins in “Gun Crazy”. Megan has her doubts and Thom’s too busy to look.


  10. juliemerholz says:

    Captain Fury 1939 with George Zucco on Tuesday and Wednesday, Victor McLaglen on Wednesday.


  11. Mary Mallory says:

    Victor McLaglen today?


  12. juliemerholz says:

    Is Monday June Lang?


  13. juliemerholz says:

    Wednesday is also Douglas Dumbrille


  14. Don Danard says:

    The Wednesday shot is Victor McLaglen in “Captain Fury”


  15. juliemerholz says:

    Also staring Brian Aherne, Paul Lukas, and John Carradine.


  16. DeweyWebb says:

    Victor McLaglen


  17. Sarah says:

    Tuesday’s mystery man is George Zucco, but alas, I can’t identify the mystery film. I’ll guess that the alternate film shown on Wednesday is “The Dreyfus Case” (1931).


  18. Mike Hawks says:

    June Lang, George Zucco and Victor McLaglen in CAPTAIN FURY 1939.


  19. Floyd Thursby says:

    Mr. Wednesday is Victor McLaglen so I suspect the movie is “Captain Fury.”


  20. Rick says:

    George Zucco as Prof Moriarity in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes


  21. Megan, Lee Ann and Thom says:

    Looks like Tuesday’s gun slinger is the gentleman crook George Zucco and Wednesday’s is big lug Victor McLaglen, in Captain Fury.


  22. Benito says:

    Wednesday’s gent is Victor McLaglen. Happy to see us AND a gun in his pocket!


  23. Barbara Klein says:

    Captain Fury

    Monday – June Lang
    Tuesday – George Zucco
    Wednesday – Victor McLaglen


  24. LC says:

    This would be Captain Fury (1939)w/Brian Aherne, Victor McLaglen, June Lang, & George Zucco.


  25. DeweyWebb says:

    June Lang in Captain Fury


  26. Bob Hansen says:

    Tuesday’s guy might be George Zucco, and Wednesday’s might be Victor McLaglen.


  27. Rick Scott says:

    I am going with “Captain Fury” with June Lang, George Zucco and Victor McLaglen.


  28. Well, something of a mystery, indeed. To me anyway. Tuesday’s gentleman number two, seems to me to be pretty clearly George Zucco although Tuesday’s gentleman number one doesn’t look at all like George Zucco. Wednesday’s big lug coming through the door is real life tough guy Victor McLaughlin carrying what appears to be Tuesday’s gentleman number one’s pistol. So if we go with George Zucco and Victor McLaughlin we end up with Captain Fury (1939) produced and directed by Hal Roach and filmed at Hal Roach Studios out on Washington Boulevard in Culver City. Which leaves me with Monday’s lass who looks to be Virginia Field (or June Lang). I dunno. It’s a mystery.


  29. Probably going to go with June Lang.


  30. Ed says:

    Wednesday is Victor McLaglen


  31. Mary Mallory says:

    CAPTAIN FURY. June Lang Monday, George Zucco Tuesday, John Carradine today.


  32. Don Danard says:

    Today, it’s Gallagher and Shean. No, it isn’t, you idiot you.
    It’s John Carradine and Vic McLaglen.


  33. william says:

    Captain Fury”, 1939


  34. Megan, Lee Ann and Thom says:

    Thursday’s mystery companion is John Carradine.


  35. Mike Hawks says:

    John Carradine ponders life’s realities while Victor McLaglen looks on.


  36. Barbara Klein says:

    Charles Middleton


  37. And for Thursday John Carradine (confirming Captain Fury), here with Victor McLaughlin and each engaging a signature expression; Carradine’s oft-seen bemusement countered by McLaughlin’s standard exasperation.


  38. Sarah says:

    Thanks for showing us John Carradine on Thursday. It’s Captain Fury, 1939.


  39. Barbara Klein says:

    Thursday – John Carradine


  40. Richard Wegescheide says:

    We have Victor McLaglen, John Carradine and George Zucco, so it must be ‘Captain Fury’, which seems to get a traditional showing every year on Australia Day.


  41. Mary Mallory says:

    Brian Aherne, with Douglas Dumbrille at far left.


  42. And Friday, we close with Brian Aherne, a somewhat bland if stalwart hero, with Douglas Dumbrille at the left.


  43. Don Danard says:

    Brian Aherne today with Douglass Dumbrille on the left edge of the shot.


  44. Barbara Klein says:

    Friday – Brian Aherne

    Note to Larry – I know, which is why I changed it. 🙂


  45. Mike Hawks says:

    Douglass Dumbrille at far left with stalwart star Brian Aherne front and center.


  46. Rick Scott says:

    We’ll finish the week with John Carradine on Thursday and Brian Aherne on Friday.
