IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT
1934, Sony Repertory, 105 min, USA, Dir: Frank Capra

The first film to win all five major Oscars (as if a comedy could ever pull that off today!) remains a jewel of timing and charm, as runaway bride Claudette Colbert finds herself saddled with pushy reporter Clark Gable, who smells the story of his career. The legendary hitchhiking and “Walls of Jericho” scenes are only the tip of this matchless comic tour de force. Screenplay by Robert Riskin; with Walter Connolly, Alan Hale and Roscoe Karns.


New DCP!

THE HITCH-HIKER
1953, Kino Lorber, 71 min, USA, Dir: Ida Lupino

A groundbreaking, fact-based story of two pals on a Mexican fishing trip kidnapped by a serial killer who terrorizes both men into delivering him to safety. The only American film noir directed by a woman - the great Ida Lupino - features a trio of terrific performances by Frank Lovejoy, Edmond O’Brien and the odious William Talman.
