COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS

Cast (feature film)

1.
The Tender Years (1948) as Mrs. Reed
The first of the Edward L. Alperson "Alson Productions" for 20th Century-Fox distribution, featuring the return to the screen, after nearly a four-year absence, of comedian Joe E. Brown, in a non-comedic role. The story is set in a small mid-western town in the 1880's, where minister William "Will" Norris (Joe E. Brown) becomes involved in the vicious fights held in the local dog-pit when one of the injured animals escapes its brutal master and seeks refuge in the Norris home. Forced by law to return the dog to its owner, the minister goes against his religious teachings and, with his son Ted (Richard Lyon), steals the dog in an effort to rouse public sympathy against the dog fights and against cruelty to all animals. The film was endorsed in many locations by local chapters of the American Humane Society and/or the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
2.
The Velvet Touch (1948) as Mrs. Elvsted
After accidentally killing her lecherous producer, a famous actress tries to hide her guilt.
3.
Ruthless (1948) as Kate Vendig
Horace Vendig shows himself to the world as a rich philanthropist. In fact, the history of his rise from his unhappy broken home shows this to be far from the case. After being taken in by richer neighbours he started to exhibit an obsessive and selfish urge to make more and more money, loving and leaving women at will to further this end.
4.
The Millerson Case (1947) as Mathilda Beechy
While on vacation, a criminal psychologist investigates a murder during a typhoid epidemic.
5.
The Romance of Rosy Ridge (1947) as Mrs. Willhart
A farmer's daughter falls in love with a man who fought against her family in the Civil War.
6.
The Girl of the Limberlost (1945) as Margaret Sinton
Based on Gene Stratton-Porter's novel and a remake of Columbia's 1934 "The Girl of the Limberlost" and 1939's "Romance of the Limberlost," this one has altered the kinship who-hates-the-girl relationship from an aunt to her mother. This time out, Elnora Comstock (Dorinda Clifton) lives on the edge of a great swamp and collects butterflies to sell in order to go to high school and pay for violin lessons. Her mother, Kate Comstock (Ruth Nelson), hates her as she blames the girl for the father's death as he drowned in a quagmire on the way home the night the girl was born. The years-late revelation that the husband had been off courting a neighbor woman that night brings an attitude adjustment to the mother.
