NICKELODEON
1976, Sony Repertory, 122 min, USA, Dir: Peter Bogdanovich

A hugely entertaining slapstick farce and heartfelt Valentine to the earliest days of the Hollywood movie industry. Ryan O’Neal stars as the bumbling young lawyer who accidentally stumbles into directing, Burt Reynolds is the hot-tempered leading man, Tatum O’Neal is the brains behind the operation, and lovely Jane Hitchcock is the object of everyone’s affections. Co-starring John Ritter, Stella Stevens and Brian Keith.


INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (1978)
1978, Park Circus/MGM, 115 min, USA, Dir: Philip Kaufman

A deftly handled, scary reimagining of both Jack Finney’s source novel and Don Siegel’s original 1956 movie, with Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams and Leonard Nimoy trying to deal with the sudden influx of body-snatching alien seed pods in the San Francisco Bay Area. With Jeff Goldblum, Veronica Cartwright, Lelia Goldoni and Don Siegel as a cab driver. Cinematography by Michael Chapman (RAGING BULL, TAXI DRIVER).
