WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE?
1962, Warner Bros., 134 min, USA, Dir: Robert Aldrich

Forget about its reputation as a camp classic; this first-rate study of the most dysfunctional siblings in cinema history is a classic, period. Bette Davis is unforgettable as a washed-up child star who passes the time by torturing her invalid sister Joan Crawford, and Robert Aldrich's direction crosses horror with film noir to create one of the most chilling yet darkly comic masterpieces of all time. With the great, underrated Victor Buono in probably his most memorable role (he was Oscar-nominated as supporting actor, as was Davis, for actress).


THE FLIGHT OF DRAGONS
1982, 96 min, USA, Dir: Jules Bass, Arthur Rankin Jr.

Can magic and science coexist? Only if Peter Dickinson (John Ritter), a game designer recruited by three wizards, can defeat the evil Ommadon (James Earl Jones). This unusually philosophical animated treat also features the voices of Harry Morgan and Victor Buono.
