JOE DANTE’S 16MM SPOTLIGHT
THREE CASES OF MURDER

Program begins with the cartoon “The Case of the Stuttering Pig” (1937, 8 min. Dir. Frank Tashlin) Porky and his siblings will inherit a fortune - if they can survive their evil lawyer.

THREE CASES OF MURDER
1955, 99 min, UK/USA, Dir: David Eady, George More O'Ferrall, Wendy Toye

This rare U.K. horror anthology is made up of three harrowing stories sure to keep you up at night. The first segment, directed by Wendy Toye, one of Britain’s first female directors, involves a mysterious Mr. X (Alan Badel), who is eternally trapped inside a painting in a museum. John Gregson, Emrys Jones and Elizabeth Sellars star as a tragic love triangle in the second episode, aptly titled “You Killed Elizabeth.” The final segment, long thought to have been directed by an uncredited Orson Welles, features Welles as Lord Mountdrago, a despicable politician who finds himself cursed with rather sinister dreams. All three tales culminate in a supremely creepy vision of murder that blends the real with the supernatural.


16mm prints from the personal film collection of Joe Dante and Jon Davison. Feature will be presented with breaks between reels.
