HANGMEN ALSO DIE!
1943, Cohen Film, 134 min, USA, Dir: Fritz Lang

Bertolt Brecht co-wrote this story about a Czech man (Brian Donlevy) on the run after killing a brutal SS officer during the Nazi occupation. Frequent Brecht collaborator Hanns Eisler supplied the Oscar-nominated score, and cinematographer James Wong Howe gave this tense thriller plenty of noir atmosphere. With Gene Lockhart and Walter Brennan.

The irresistible, triumphant musical tale of a nun (Julie Andrews) who becomes the nanny for the seven children of widowed Austrian Captain Von Trapp (Christopher Plummer), winning their hearts and eventually their father's as well.
