Synopsis

John Wayne double-bill. In 'Lady From Louisiana' (1941), John Reynolds (Wayne) meets a beautiful southern belle, Julie Mirbeau (Ona Munson), on a Mississippi river boat - a woman he is soon completely in love with. Unfortunately, it seems that Julie is the daughter of a lottery owner in New Orleans and John is an attorney in the employ of the anti-lottery league. When a lottery winner is murdered, John must try to stamp out corruption while maintaining his relationship with Julie. In 'Flame of Barbary Coast' (1945), Duke (Wayne) is a rancher who wins enough money gambling to open his own saloon. He spars with a ruthless tycoon for the affections of a saloon singer (Ann Dvorak), but the San Francisco earthquake places everything in perspective.
