HIGHBALLS AND SCREWBALLS
Double Feature!
THE LADY EVE / SCARLET STREET
35 mm!

THE LADY EVE
1941, Universal, 97 min, USA, Dir: Preston Sturges

Henry Fonda is dim-witted ale heir “Hopsy” Pike (“Snakes are my life”); Barbara Stanwyck is Eve, cardsharp and con artist par excellence. Can this relationship work? Savage but never mean-spirited, this is Sturges at his best, blending violent slapstick, zesty dialogue and genuine romance into a peerless masterwork. With Charles Coburn, William Demarest, Eugene Pallette and Eric Blore.


SCARLET STREET
1945, Kino Lorber, 103 min, USA, Dir: Fritz Lang

Fritz Lang’s classic film noir reunited his WOMAN IN THE WINDOW stars Edward G. Robinson, Joan Bennett and Dan Duryea in a reworking of Jean Renoir’s 1931 LA CHIENNE. Robinson’s middle-aged bookkeeper and amateur artist becomes hopelessly ensnared by the seductive Bennett and her lover-pimp, Duryea. The result is a psychological thriller, with Robinson’s increasing desperation contrasting with his predators’ unremitting ruthlessness. As with WOMAN IN THE WINDOW, Lang reveals the potential criminal in the average citizen.
