THE STAR
1952, Warner Bros., 89 min, USA, Dir: Stuart Heisler

“Come on, Oscar, let's you and me get drunk!” Bette Davis racked up another well-deserved Academy Award nomination playing a movie star whose career has hit the skids. Former actor turned boat mechanic Sterling Hayden throws her a lifeline - but can she put love above the chance at a Hollywood comeback? Natalie Wood costars.

JOHNNY GUITAR
1954, Republic (Paramount), 110 min, USA, Dir: Nicholas Ray

Joan Crawford is headstrong Vienna, a saloon owner waiting for the railroad to reach her town. Her friendship with charming outlaw the Dancing Kid (Scott Brady) jeopardizes her standing in the local community. Uptight landowners led by jealous Emma (a frightening Mercedes McCambridge) will do anything to repress her yen for the Kid, even if it means lynching half the town to do it. Enter Vienna’s old flame, Johnny (Sterling Hayden), a quick-draw who’s given up guns for a guitar. Only director Nicholas Ray could pull off this color-coded, violent, romantic tall tale rife with allegorical references to the rabid right wing of 1950s America. Victor Young did the lush score, with Peggy Lee singing the torrid theme song. Co-starring Ward Bond, Ernest Borgnine, John Carradine.
