TWO GIRLS ON THE STREET
KÉT LÁNY AZ UTCÁN
1939, 84 min, Hungary, Dir: André De Toth

One of writer-director André De Toth’s first features is this prewar Hungarian delight starring Bella Bordy and Mária Tasnádi Fekete as the titular young women. Upper-class Gyöngyi and impoverished Vica are both on the outs with their families and head to Budapest, where they meet and move in together as they try to turn their lives around.

PITFALL
1948, 86 min, USA, Dir: André de Toth

Insurance agent Dick Powell, facing a midlife crisis, falls for hard-luck model Lizabeth Scott - but brutish private eye Raymond Burr already has designs on her. The men wage war for her charms … and she already has her hands full with a convict lover about to be sprung from jail. Who'll survive this guilt-sodden affair? A downbeat, compelling classic.


TWO GIRLS ON THE STREET in Hungarian with English subtitles. Restored in 2010 by Cineteca di Bologna/L'Immagine Ritrovata laboratory, in association with The Film Foundation’s World Cinema Project and Magyar Nemzeti Filmarchívum. Restoration funded by Armani, Cartier, Qatar Airways and Qatar Museum Authority.
