THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF THE BROTHERS GRIMM
1962, Warner Bros., 135 min, USA, Dir: Henry Levin, George Pal

This family fantasy favorite interweaves a fictional narrative about the storytelling brothers (played by Laurence Harvey and Karlheinz Böhm) with a trio of their fairy tales: “The Dancing Princess,” “The Cobbler and the Elves” and “The Singing Bone.” The star-studded cast includes Claire Bloom, Barbara Eden, Jim Backus and Russ Tamblyn (who reprises his TOM THUMB role). Originally presented in Cinerama, this feast for the eyes and ears was an Oscar nominee for Best Cinematography, Music and Art Direction, and a winner for Best Costume Design.


THE TIME MACHINE
1960, Warner Bros., 103 min, USA, Dir: George Pal

Victorian inventor Rod Taylor is convinced that the world of the future will have solved all of the industrial age’s problems – until he journeys there in his gorgeous, kaleidoscopic Time Machine, to find a race of peaceful, cattle-like humans lorded over by subterranean Morlocks. Brilliantly adapted from H.G. Wells’ novel by producer-director George Pal. With Yvette Mimieux, Alan Young.


THE TENDER TRAP
1955, Warner Bros., 111 min, USA, Dir: Charles Walters

Debbie Reynolds stars as the ambitious Julie, who happens upon womanizing theatrical agent and Manhattan socialite Charlie Reader (Frank Sinatra). Celeste Holm is delightful as Reynolds’ prime competition.
