LIONEL ATWILL LURKS HERE
Double Feature!
CAPTAIN BLOOD / SECRET OF THE BLUE ROOM
CAPTAIN BLOOD
1935, Warner Bros., 119 min, USA, Dir: Michael Curtiz

Director Michael Curtiz directs one of the best swashbucklers ever made, and the film that made Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland stars. Dr. Peter Blood (Flynn), a man unjustly convicted of treason, is exiled to Port Royal, sold into slavery and bought by the lovely Lady Arabella (de Havilland). He and fellow convicts manage to escape and take over a Spanish galleon, and the pirate Captain Blood is born! Lionel Atwill and villainous Basil Rathbone are standouts in the exceptional supporting cast.


80th Anniversary!

SECRET OF THE BLUE ROOM
1933, Universal, 66 min, USA, Dir: Kurt Neumann

In this atmospheric and underrated mystery, three suitors converge on a castle to seek the hand of a young woman (Gloria Stuart). There’s a door at the estate that has been locked for many years; when asked about it, the girl’s father (Lionel Atwill) explains that the blue room was the scene of three strange deaths. In a show of bravery, the young men each volunteer to spend a night there – but they don’t all make it to the morning.
