"Just Around the Corner" (1 932) origination
9 May 2016 | by forneym5See all my reviews

I first saw "Just Around the Corner" in 1960 when I was a film producer for the Film Production Section of GE in Schenectady. The movie was kept in a safe and not many people had an opportunity to see it. After leaving GE I learned that the only print GE had was thrown away because it had damaged sprocket holes. I've searched for the complete version ever since.

A misleading statement I've see recently suggests General Electric produced the movie and Warner Bros. distributed it. However, I have learned from senior management people at GE that the movie was made as a payback by Warner Bros. to GE who had provided train transportation for a Warner Bros. group from the West Coast to the East Coast. I never learned anything more about the event, but I know that General Electric was a major producer of electric trains(see "king of the Rails" (1915).
