The Inspector General (1949)

Based on a 19th Century satiric play by Nicolai Gogol. Danny Kaye plays Georgi, who works for the conniving Yakov (Walter Slezak), traveling around the countryside selling "Yakov's elixir" which purportedly cures all kinds of illnesses. However, they are forced to flee when Georgi tries to stop an elderly woman from wasting her money on the elixir. Yakov sends Georgi away until he can learn to be crooked. They've been using a fake document signed by Napoleon in their sales pitch. Georgi is carrying it when he is arrested by the town constable (Alan Hale Sr.). When the letter is discovered by the town officials they panic in preparation for a visit by Napoleon's Inspector General to check their records and mistake Georgi for the inspector. Yakov arrives in town and quickly pretends he is the "Inspector's" servant.

Beware the Blob (1972)

The Blob returns--more outrageous than ever in this 1972 sequel to the popular sci-fi classic! Plenty of familiar faces, including Larry Hagman (who also directed), Burgess Meredith, Dick Van Patten, Robert Walker and Shelly Berman, add to the fun. A geologist (Godfrey Cambridge) unwittingly brings home an unusual frozen piece of debris from the North Pole. But when it accidentally thaws, the hungrier-than-ever blood-red Blob comes to life again, consuming nearly everyone in its path and terrorizing the town.Can this bizarre creature ever be stopped?
