MY MAN GODFREY
1936, Universal, 94 min, USA, Dir: Gregory La Cava

"You people have confused me with the U.S. Treasury!" barks Eugene Pallette to his spoiled, filthy-rich family, including daughter Carole Lombard, who acquires tramp William Powell during a scavenger hunt and makes him her butler, whereupon he teaches her a few lessons about being human. Comeuppance for the wealthy was sure-fire material during the Depression, and no film ever did it better than this one. With Alice Brady, Mischa Auer, Gail Patrick and Alan Mowbray.

DETOUR
1946, Janus Films, 70 min, USA, Dir: Edgar G. Ulmer

“Whichever way you turn, fate sticks out a foot to trip you” in this low-budget noir classic. Hitchhiking to Hollywood, loser Tom Neal takes several wrong turns and ends up on the expressway to hell - Ann Savage plays the vixenish vagabond who ushers him there. She ends up paying a stiff toll herself.


Screening format: DCP. DETOUR Restored by the Academy Film Archive and The Film Foundation in collaboration with Cinémathèque Royale de Belgique, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Cinémathèque Française. Restoration funding provided by the George Lucas Family Foundation.
