Wednesday, July 23
(1946, Robert Siodmak) Gas jockey/boxer Burt Lancaster (in his debut) holes up in a small dark room awaiting his own assassins — so far so good, from Hemingway’s classic story — but then insurance dick Edmond O’Brien teams up with cop Sam Levene to dig up all the scheming, and double-crossing — and sultry Ava Gardner — that got him there. Approx. 105 min. DCP.
12:40, 5:10, 9:45
(1946, Charles Vidor) Glenn Ford’s loyalty to Buenos Aires nightclub magnate George Macready is threatened when the boss produces a wife — Rita Hayworth! “There never was a woman like Gilda!” shouted the ads, and there never was a star as electrifying as Hayworth, from her hair-tossing first close-up; to her teasing bumps and grinds, dressed in black satin gown, to the strains of “Put the Blame on Mame.” Approx. 110 min. DCP.
