Tuesday, July 29
(1952, David Miller) Not cast in playwright Joan Crawford’s latest, Jack Palance settles for marriage, then goes for the inheritance with scheming girlfriend Gloria Grahame’s aid — but resourceful Joan has plotting skills of her own. Approx. 110 min. 35mm.
“With suspense screwed way beyond the sticking point, superb camerawork, and Crawford in nerve-janglingly extravagant form, it’s hugely enjoyable.”
– Tom Milne, Time Out (London)
“TWISTY, NEUROTIC AND LOTS OF FUN! What could possibly be campier than Joan Crawford cast as a cutthroat playwright? Try Jack Palance as her devilish husband.”
– Time Out New York
Plus The Three Stooges in In the Sweet Pie and Pie
(1949, John Berry) When he hears the news about wife Audrey Totter’s cheating, bespectacled druggist Richard Basehart gets really, really... well, tense, his nerves matching that pre-credit stretched-to-the-max rubber band. But those newfangled contact lenses, plus a new identity, help him loosen up... and then he meets Cyd Charisse. Approx. 95 min. 35mm.
