JUST IMAGINE
1930, 20th Century Fox, 109 min, USA, Dir: David Butler

In this highly original sci-fi musical, long-dead El Brendel is revived 50 years in the future - 1980! - and finds it impossible to adapt to the way times have changed. Maureen O'Sullivan and John Garrick costar in this stunning collection of then-futuristic set pieces.


HIDE-OUT
1934, Warner Bros., 81 min, USA, Dir: W.S. Van Dyke

On the lam from the cops, ladies man and racketeer Jack “Lucky” Wilson (Robert Montgomery) is wounded by a bullet and taken in by a farmer. As it turns out, a farm is the perfect hide-out for a crook, and Lucky stays on with the chickens and roosters while the police unsuccessfully look for him. But when Lucky meets and falls for the farmer’s lovely daughter Pauline (Maureen O’Sullivan), he must somehow reconcile his double life - his gangster ways and his current cow-milking - so that he can be with the woman he loves. A wonderfully funny crime comedy from director W.S. Van Dyke (THE THIN MAN)! With Mickey Rooney and Edward Arnold.
