April 2017

 

Great Movies, Great Soundtracks

 

Friday, April 7                          The Wizard of Oz                           (1939 / 102 min. / G / CC)

One of the most honored films in history as well as a cultural icon, Wizard of Oz is about an adolescent girl, knocked unconscious during a tornado, who dreams a colorful dream that helps her to claim her identity and her power. Fortunately, 17-year-old Judy Garland was chosen for the lead role over Shirley Temple, who was five years younger. It was directed principally by Victor Fleming, but its original director, George Cukor, changed the hyperbolic approach to the action that had been planned to a naturalistic one, which saved Garland from wearing “baby doll” makeup and speaking in an affected way. 

This brings us to the music, which won Academy Awards for lyricist Yip Harburg  and composer Harold Arlen for Best Original Song (“Over the Rainbow”) and for Herbert Stothart for Best Original Score. Harburg and Arlen wrote all the songs.

 

Friday, April 14 O Brother Where Art Thou? (2000 / 107 min. / PG-13 / CC)

A satire referencing The Odyssey, Brother is about three escaped convicts (John Turturro, Tim Blake Nelson and George Clooney) bumbling about the Depression-era South looking for a treasure. They run into a one-eyed Bible salesman standing in for the Cyclops, plenty of old timey musicians hollerin’ tunefully like Sirens, and so on. Actually, the music is so good the soundtrack recording won a Grammy for Album of the Year in 2001. Also starring Holly Hunter, John Goodman and Charles Durning.

 

Friday, April 21  Anatomy of a Murder (1959 / 160 min. / NR / CC)

Small-town lawyer Paul Biegler (James Stewart) takes on the defense of Army Lieutenant Manny Manion (Ben Gazzara), charged with the murder of tavern owner Barney Quill.  Manion claims his very attractive wife Laura (Lee Remick) had been raped by Quill. Duke Ellington plays the bit part of “Pie-Eye,” a bandleader gigging at Quill’s tavern, and wrote the striking jazz score that won three Grammys. PLEASE NOTE:  BECAUSE OF THE FILM’S LENGTH WE WILL BEGIN IT EXACTLY AT 3 P.M.

 

Friday, April 28  Stand By Me (1986 / 89 min. / R / CC)

Over Labor Day weekend, 1959, four boys from Castle Rock, Oregon secretly set out on an overnight hike to find the body of a child they believe has been killed by a train. River Phoenix plays the leader of the pack. Based on a novella by Stephen King, the film is suspenseful in a laid back “summer in Oregon” kind of way, but at its root this is really an affecting character study. The  soundtrack of 1950s and early 60’s classic rock and R & B songs is a treasure.

 

 

May, 2017

A Robert Altman Retrospective

 

Friday, May 5         Nashville (1975 / 160 min. / R / CC)

Pauline Kael described Nashville as “the funniest epic vision of America ever to reach the screen.” The action involves a boatload of characters hustling to make it in the Country music business. Their stories intertwine with preparations for a concert rally to support a populist politician running for President of the United States on the Replacement Party ticket. Nashville is widely considered Altman’s masterpiece. It won lots of nominations and awards, including Best Supporting Actress nominations for Geraldine Chaplin, Barbara Harris and Lily Tomlin.

 

Friday, May 12 McCabe and Mrs. Miller (1971 / 120 min. / R / CC)

It is 1902. Gambler John McCabe (Warren Beatty) arrives in the inaptly named town of Presbyterian Church to open a brothel. A Brit opium addict named Mrs. Miller (Julie Christie) becomes its madam. When they become prosperous, they attract the greedy gaze of an unscrupulous mining company. Altman called McCabe an “anti-western,” a subversion of the “western” genre paradigm. Almost by accident, Leonard Cohen lent three of his songs, including “Sisters of Mercy” to the haunting soundtrack.

 

Friday, May 19     Library closed for Malcolm X’s Birthday

 

Friday, May 26 Gosford Park (2001 / 131 min. / PG / CC)

Gosford Park is a slyly satiric murder mystery set during a weekend shooting party at a British country estate. It features another ensemble cast (including Maggie Smith, Emily Watson, Helen Mirren, Clive Owen and Michael Gambon), playing aristocrats and servants, as in Downton Abbey. In fact, Downton Abbey’s creator, Julian Fellowes, wrote Gosford Park before he wrote Downton Abbey. Downton was originally conceived as a spin-off of Gosford Park, which was more successful financially than any of Altman’s films except MASH (1970).
