The Difference Between Nip and Tuck
Time for a happy romp through college days with three young men and three . . . er . . . . Four young girls . . . . One of our college lads is dating blonde twins! In 1934 President Franklin D. Roosevelt was assuring us all that the Great Depression would soon end and that ‘Prosperity is Just Around the Corner.’ At Rawley College the only depression is the mood of the boys when their girlfriends are mad at them. The story is about a sports event and the three Rawley athletes hoping to bring victory to the school, but all of the action is around the girls, and their efforts to trap the boys of their choice
Fans of classic cinema remember Lon Chaney Jr. as the wolf man, and other beasts of horror, but in this story he is the ruggedly handsome muscle-man athlete of Rawley College, and he even sings a song in the frat house that is pretty darn good. His girlfriend Mary is frustrated because he thinks more about sports than he does about her.
Our second athlete is played by Edward J. Nugent, who often played the handsome, witty, self-confident winner, and he is the college track star, dating the blonde hottie of the campus. Gwen’s problem with him is that he thinks he is God’s Gift to women, and although he probably is, she would like him to pay as much attention to her as he does to himself.
Our third athlete is a pole vault champ played by Arthur Lake, who would become famous a few years later in the movie versions of the newspaper comic strip Dagwood and Blondie. In this story he is dating the Crane sisters, blonde twins with the nicknames Nip and Tuck, and it seems that they enjoy taking turns dating him without letting him know which one they are, much to his dismay.
Comic complications ensue, and the blonde hottie decides to make her big man on campus track star jealous, so she flirts with muscle-man Lon Chaney Jr., and he suddenly discovers the mystery of seductive women and his mind no longer thinks only about sports. His girlfriend and the confident track star decide that what is good for the goose is good for the gander, and they pretend to like each other to get even.
Of course, both couples are unhappy, but neither will give in and return to the ones that they really love, and as the big sports event approaches, both athletes are in a blue funk and will not perform at their best. . . . . Unless something happens that will suddenly straighten out this confusing mess. . . . But even after the two boys get straightened out with their girls and win their event, the school needs one more champion effort by the pole vaulting efforts of Arthur Lake. The one thing that will inspire him to greatness is the promise of knowing the secret between which of his girlfriends is Nip and which twin is Tuck, so he will always know which of his twin girlfriends he is with. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.

The question that I am asked most often is whether these movies are really public domain, or am I sharing movies that are still copyrighted and owned by movie studios and independent producers. Some folk believe that I am clever enough to share movies still owned by studios and independent producers without them knowing, but that would not be 'clever' . . . . merely 'stupid.' The first month that I started this web site I uploaded the stack of movies that I had on hand that I believed were public domain. Within days, when only a handful of visitors found my site, a movie studio contacted me and let me know that a couple of their copyrighted movies were among my uploads. I quickly apologized and removed them, and I started learning how to research copyright office records instead of taking the word of movie bloggers. To guarantee that I don't make a mistake, and encourage any studio or producer to correct any mistake that I might make, I do not hide the files with cryptic file names like movie pirates do, and I do not host the movies in a small offshore nation to prevent movie studios from finding either me or the movies. Every movie is named and dated and very easy for motion picture studios to search for and find . . . . . And believe me, they are constantly watching. You may have only discovered this web site recently, but all of the movie studios watch my listings very closely, and have since the very early days. Our legal system makes it very easy for movie studio lawyers to quickly shut down an offending web site, and I am a very cautious person who wants to be around for a while, and have no interest in abusing the rights of others. I am also very easy to find . . . . I am a very public person with my face on every page of the web site, and a contact link on every page of the web site, and if you look at the 'meet Jimbo' page you can even easily discover my cell phone number by following the link to my personal pages. The movies that have been here for five years now are still here because they have no current legal owner or legal guardian.
If you find an error or factual mistake, please use the contact page to let me know so that I can correct it for everyone else. This web site attempts to celebrate the efforts of every actor from the first decades of motion pictures - not just the stars - because like a grand stew, every actor adds a unique flavor to the film, and without any of them the movie would not be the same. If you are one of these actors, or a friend or family member of an actor, please send me any anecdotes and stories that you know about any of them, and I will gladly add them to the site to enrich our knowledge about that actor or the movie they played in.
