THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS
1942, Warner Bros., 88 min, USA, Dir: Orson Welles

Director Orson Welles' poetic, tragic adaptation of Booth Tarkington's novel, centering on the fall of one wealthy family, with Stanley Cortez's dynamic camerawork providing a panorama of turn-of-the-century America and the decay of the old aristocracy.


70th Anniversary!

THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI
1948, Sony Repertory, 87 min, USA, Dir: Orson Welles

The camera is the star in one of director Orson Welles’ most phantasmagorical films, a dazzling noir thriller about a seaman, a crippled lawyer and his homicidal wife pursuing one another through a "bright, guilty world" of infidelity, deception and murder. The hall-of-mirrors climax is riveting. With Orson Welles, Rita Hayworth and Everett Sloane.
