THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE

(1946, Tay Garnett) “Give me a kiss or I’ll sock ya.” Screen-combusting lovers John Garfield and Lana Turner — dressed more for Park Ave. than the greasy spoon she slings hash in — plot to do away with her nice but old husband. Heavily censored from the James M. Cain novel, but as director Garnett crowed, “We still managed to get the sex across.” Approx. 113 min. 35mm.

MILDRED PIERCE

Also playing as a single feature on Thursday, July 31

(1945, Michael Curtiz) Oscar winner Joan Crawford’s daughter-Ann-Blyth-loving Mildred relentlessly moves from housewife to waitress to restaurant mogul, en route dumping husband Bruce Bennett and acquiring sleazeball playboy Zachary Scott — or does she? Adapted from James M. Cain’s steamy pulp classic. “More authentic suggestions of sex than one hopes to see in American films.” – James Agee. Approx. 109 min. 35mm.
