Arrowsmith with Ronald Colman and Helen Hayes - The story of a dedicated doctor and his possible discovery of a vaccine. The story really picks up in the second half when he travels to the West Indies to try to stop an outbreak of plague. The one thing I didn't care for was Myrna Loy being underutilized - I would have liked to see the relationship between her and Colman developed more. 7/10

A Kiss Before Dying with Robert Wagner and Joanne Woodward - A young man wants to marry into a family for its fortune. When things don't go exactly as planned he tries to kill the girl and move on to her sister. Wagner was really good at playing a charming psychopath. I also liked the sister who begins to suspect he is not the wonderful person everyone else seems to think and tries to discover what really happened in his past. 8/10
