March 4—FIVE GRAVES TO CAIRO (1943 / 96 minutes)
Erich von Stroheim, the “man you love to hate’”, is Erwin Rommel, and Franchot Tone is posing as a Nazi in a North Africa hotel seeking the Führer’s secret fuel supply in this tight thriller from director Billy Wilder and co-writer Charles Brackett. Co-stars Anne Baxter and Akim Tamiroff.
March 11—FOG OVER FRISCO (1934 / 70 minutes)
The great and vastly under-appreciated William Dieterle directs a crisp and beautifully photographed mystery-thriller featuring a young Bette Davis as the wayward sister of an heiress in danger. With Donald Woods, Margaret Lindsay, Lyle Talbot, Alan Hale and William Demarest.
March 18—MORGAN: A SUITABLE CASE FOR TREATMENT (1966 / 97 minutes)
The British class system crumbles amid a cacophony of Beatles’ music, LSD, and cannabis in this early “Swinging ‘60s” counter culture comedy. Featuring David Warner as the titular character and Vanessa Redgrave as his married and moneyed sparring partner. Directed by Karel Reisz.
March 25—THE FIANCES (1963 / 77 minutes)
A skilled factory worker’s passion for his intended undulates between melancholia and sentiment in this rich neo-realist comedy from Italy’s Ermanno Olmi. With Carlo Cabrini and Anna Canzi. In Italian with English Subtitles.
April 1—MURPHY’S WAR (1971 / 107 minutes)
Director Peter Yates illustrates the futility of war and vengeance in a fable about a wounded soldier played by Peter O’Toole seeking to scuttle the Germans at any cost (and no matter what) in the closing days of World War II. With Philippe Noiret and the magnificent Siân Phillips.
April 8—THE VERDICT (1982 / 129 minutes)
Director Sidney Lumet and playwright David Mamet bring Barry Reed’s novel to the screen. Paul Newman plays an alcoholic ambulance chaser who finds that—for once—his self-interest is also the ethical high road. The strong cast also co-stars Charlotte Rampling, Jack Warden, James Mason, Milo O’Shea and Lindsay Crouse.
April 15—THE BURGLARS (1971 / 120 minutes)
Jean-Paul Belmondo, Omar Sharif and Dyan Cannon headline director Henri Verneuil’s influential caper movie based on a 1957 novel by David Goodis. In it, a cat and mouse game pits a live-wire jewel thief against a dedicated detective. In French with English Subtitles.
April 22—CABARET (1972 / 124 minutes)
Director Bob Fosse re-imagines the hit 1966 Broadway Harold Prince / Kander & Ebb musical about the goings-on in a decadent nightclub juxtaposed with the Nazi rise to power in 1931 Germany. Starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York, Marisa Berenson and Joel Grey as the Master of Ceremonies. In addition to the title song, the movie features such classic songs as “Willkommen”, “Mein Herr”, “Maybe This Time” and “Money, Money”. Winner of eight Academy Awards and one of the great American films of all time. 2013-14 Season Finale!
