THE HAUNTING
1963, Warner Bros., 112 min, USA, Dir: Robert Wise

"Silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone…" Paranormal researcher Richard Johnson leads a team of clairvoyants (Julie Harris, Claire Bloom) to determine if the notorious, bad karma-filled Hill House is truly haunted. What he doesn’t bargain for is intensely neurotic Harris developing an unhealthy sensitivity to the mansion’s evil-charged atmosphere. Based on Shirley Jackson’s novel The Haunting of Hill House, this is one of the all-time classics of the genre. In supernatural CinemaScope! With Russ Tamblyn.


STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE
1979, Paramount, 132 min, USA, Dir: Robert Wise

Director Robert Wise, ably assisted by Harold Michelson’s (DICK TRACY) otherworldly production design, Jerry Goldsmith’s stirring score and a special effects team including Douglas Trumbull and John Dykstra, delivers the first STAR TREK film as a profound meditation on man’s struggle to survive against the negative forces in the universe. With William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, Walter Koenig, George Takei, James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, Persis Khambatta.


WEST SIDE STORY
1961, Park Circus/MGM, 151 min, Dir: Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins

The ultra-classic musical, co-directed by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins, stars Natalie Wood as the lovely Maria and Richard Beymer as her star-crossed lover Tony, surrounded by switchblade-carrying gangs led by Russ Tamblyn, Rita Moreno and George Chakiris. Leonard Bernstein's soaring, instantly memorable score, with lyrics by a young Stephen Sondheim, stands as one of the finest ever written for the American musical theater.
