I AM A FUGITIVE FROM A CHAIN GANG

Directed by Mervyn LeRoy

7:40 screening introduced by David Thompson, author of Warner Bros: The Making of an American Studio, with a book signing following the film

(1932) “But how do you get along? How do you live?” “I steal.” Out-of-work war vet Paul Muni gets railroaded – twice – onto brutal Southern chain gangs, his only prospect after escaping a life spent perpetually on the run. Based on a true story, the original author was re-captured following post-movie publicity. 35mm. Approx. 93 min.
12:30, 4:05, 7:40

“The filming is emphatic and cocksure, greedy for action and faces; and the editing hurtles forward, never diverted from the anguish in Muni’s performance, but not milking it for pathos… It leaves our contemporary gangster films looking fancy and indulgent, and without a thought of changing the world.”
– David Thomson, Warner Bros: The Making of an American Movie Studio

LITTLE CAESAR

Directed by Mervyn LeRoy

(1930) “Mother of Mercy, is this the end of Rico?” moans Edward G. Robinson at the climax of his star-making incarnation of an Al Capone type's rise and fall. Adapted from the hard-boiled classic by W.R. Burnett. 35mm. Approx. 80 min.
