ONE-EYED JACKS
1961, Universal, 141 min, USA, Dir: Marlon Brando

Originally intended as a project for director Stanley Kubrick (based on various scripts by Sam Peckinpah and Rod Serling, among others), ONE-EYED JACKS became (in)famous as the only film directed by Marlon Brando – who also stars as an outlaw bent on taking revenge on former friend Karl Malden. A surreal and often stunning film that anticipated postmodern Westerns like Monte Hellman’s THE SHOOTING and Peckinpah’s own THE BALLAD OF CABLE HOGUE.

1954, Paramount, 113 min, USA, Dir: Billy Wilder

Chauffeur's daughter Audrey Hepburn blooms from ugly duckling to a chic young woman who must choose between wealthy, middle-aged Humphrey Bogart and cocky lover-boy William Holden.


SUDDEN FEAR
1952, Cohen Film, 110 min, USA, Dir: David Miller
