THE KILLING OF A CHINESE BOOKIE
1976, Westchester Films, 129 min, Dir: John Cassavetes

HOUSE OF NUMBERS
1957, MGM [Warner Bros.], 92 min, USA, Dir: Russell Rouse

What’s more ominous than a jugged Jack Palance doing hard time? How about Jack in a dual role as look-alike brothers … with Timothy Carey as a cellmate! In a clever twist, the Palance on the outside schemes to free his twin by breaking into maximum security! Ultra-rare noir directed on location at San Quentin by the always original Russell Rouse (DOA, NEW YORK CONFIDENTIAL, THE WELL). Not on DVD!


EAST OF EDEN
1955, Warner Bros., 115 min, Dir: Elia Kazan

James Dean is brilliantly cast as shy Cal, a pre-WWI teenager who can’t escape from the shadow of his perfect brother, Aaron (Richard Davalos). Cal is also a rebellious black sheep who will do almost anything to gain the love of his strict father (Raymond Massey), a desire that may destroy those around him but may also, in the end, offer him his last chance at redemption. With a great cast that includes Julie Harris, Albert Dekker, Burl Ives and a cameo by Timothy Carey. In CinemaScope!
