Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU
Dir: Frank Capra
Director Frank Capra won an Oscar for Best Director (the film also won Best Picture) for this adaptation of the play by George S. Kaufman & Moss Hart about an eccentric, strangely happy family living in a rambling house amidst urban redevelopment. The amazing cast includes Jean Arthur, James Stewart, Lionel Barrymore, Edward Arnold, Eddie “Rochester” Anderson and Ann Miller.
Dir: Alfred Hitchcock
Montgomery Clift plays a priest who undergoes a crisis of faith when he hears a murderer's confession; as the film progresses, he takes on the man's guilt as his own, both literally (as police wrongly suspect him of the murder) and psychologically. The French critics of the 1950s considered this to be one of Hitchcock's major works, and it remains among his most underrated masterpieces.
Alcoholic ex-cop Max Thursday (Zachary Scott) lives a dingy existence as house detective for a run-down hotel. When his ex-wife shows up and tells him that his son has been kidnapped, it’s just what Thursday needs to spring into action and reclaim his old enthusiasm.
