April 2019
Classics of the 1940s

Friday, April 5     The Philadelphia Story   1940 / 112 min. / NR

Tracy Lord  (Katharine Hepburn), the spirited but haughty daughter of a socialite family, is getting married, but knock-down gorgeous ex-husband C.K. Dexter Haven (Cary Grant) keeps turning up. So does Mike Connor (Jimmy Stewart), a charmingly shy Spy magazine reporter. The groom (John Howard) now and then rides by on a horse. It’s satire, with actors likably portraying foolish people.  Directed by George Cukor.

 

Friday, April 12   The Maltese Falcon   1941 / 100 min. / NR

After agreeing to find the missing sister of a mysterious woman (Mary Astor), private detective Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart) learns his partner has been murdered while on the case. Spade chases down the loose ends of the dodgy client’s story, hoping to find Archer’s killer. Along the way he meets two menacing guys (Sidney Greenstreest and Peter Lorre), who are looking for a bejeweled statue. Things start to add up for Spade. The film is widely considered to be the first film noir classic. John Huston was a first-time screenwriter and director on the project.

 

Friday, April 19   Bicycle Thieves    1948 / 89 min. / NR

In post-World War II Rome, Antonio Ricci (Lamberto Maggiorani) needs work to support his family. He’s offered a job posting bills. It requires a bicycle, but his bicycle has been stolen. His wife parts with her dowry to get him another. Then it is also stolen. For days, Antonio and his son search Rome for the bicycle. Director Vittorio De Sica’s film is a fine example of Italian neorealism. Upon its release, Sight and Sound magazine named it the best film ever made.

 

Friday, April 26    Treasure of the Sierra Madre  1948 / 128 min. / Passed

In Tampico, Mexico, two vagrants (Humphrey Bogart & Tim Holt) decide to go prospecting for gold. They meet up with a wizened and irritatingly voluble ex-miner (Walter Huston) who agrees to guide them. They find gold, but they’re harassed by a bandit gang headed by Gold Hat (Alfonso Bedoya) and another guy who wants to butt in and take a share. The original three grow paranoid and things go awry. Directed by Walter Huston’s son, John Huston.

 

May 2019

Notably Inventive Films


Friday, May 3   Man with a Movie Camera    1929 / 68 min. / N

Disavowing documentaries modeled after theater and literature, Soviet filmmaker Dziga Vertov shot the footage that became Man with a Movie Camera over a period of three years in four Soviet cities, inventing new camera techniques as he worked. His wife, Elizaveta Svilova, edited the film to be fast and surprising, which drew skepticism early on. It has since been called the best documentary ever made by the prestigious film magazine Sight and Sound.


AND    The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari    1920 / 67 min. / NR

At a carnival booth in a German town, Dr. Caligari wakes his somnambulist, Cesare, who correctly predicts a man’s death. When the man is killed during the night, the police suspect Caligari of using Cesare to commit murders. This was one of the first films to follow the highly symbolic and stylized bent of German Expressionism, a reaction to the horrors of World War I. Really the first horror film, its off-kilter, high-contrast sets influenced artists like Salvador Dali.

 

Friday, May 10   No screening / Friends of the Library Book Sale Prep

 

Friday, May 17   Hugo       2011 / 126 min. / PG

The film is about an orphaned 12 year old boy who lives alone in Paris’s Montparnasse railway station in 1931. He maintains the building’s clocks, and fixes or invents whatever else he can, as he had been taught by his father (Jude Law). Finally, an aging toy maker with secrets (Ben Kingsley) brings Hugo’s indentured life at Gare Montparnasse to a surprising conclusion. Nominated for 11 Academy Awards, and Martin Scorsese won a Golden Globe for directing.

 

Friday, May 24   King Kong      1933 / 100 min. / Passed

In 1932 filmmaker Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong) charters a boat and heads for Skull Island, where lives a huge ape-like creature known as Kong. Right away, villagers capture leading lady Ann (Fay Wray) and offer her to Kong. He fights to keep her, but the film crew finally subdues and takes him to New York to be exhibited as a nightmarish curiosity. He escapes and goes on a rampage through the city, Fay Wray in hand. It was suitable distraction from the Depression.

 

Friday, May 31   Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind           2004 / 108 min. / R

When New Yorkers Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) and Clementine Cruczinski (Kate Winslet) meet on a train to Montauk, they share an odd attraction. They’re different—Joel shy and awkward, Clementine a brash free spirit. Turns out they’ve been through this before and tried to have a pseudo scientific company erase their memories of each other.  For us and for them, as the movie moves on, screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Adaptation) smashes linear time.
