THE ST. VALENTINE’S DAY MASSACRE

(1967, Roger Corman) Al Capone non-lookalike Jason Robards chews cigars and the scenery, even as Tommy Gun-toting Model Ts send him hurtling to the floor of his favorite eatery, henchman George Segal has a Cagneyesque knockdown fight with his moll over a fur coat, and Jack Nicholson raspingly delivers one line on garlic-drenched bullets, in Corman’s semi-doc on the fabled rubout. Approx. 100 min. 35mm.

THE RISE AND FALL OF LEGS DIAMOND

(1960, Budd Boetticher) Ray Danton’s Legs assures victory in a dance contest by torching a rival’s dress, all as part of a jewel robbery, then decides on a protection racket — against mob bosses! — shrugging off numerous bullet wounds with two-gunned vengeance; but back from European holiday, finds a new regime in power. Danton’s magnetic heel keys Western/bullfight film legend Boetticher’s b&w throwback. Approx. 101 min. 35mm.
