THE WRONG MAN

(1956, Alfred Hitchcock) Returning at dawn to Jackson Heights, Stork Club bass player Henry Fonda finds himself trapped in a classic mistaken-identity case. Shot in ruthlessly restrained semi-doc style on the locations of the actual case, with harrowing sequences of Fonda’s booking and arraignment, and memorable innocent-to-guilty dissolve. Approx. 105 min. 35mm.

“Has an almost Kafkaesque nightmare realism to it.”
– Pauline Kael

BOOMERANG!

(1947, Elia Kazan) Cops nail a priest’s murderer, but D.A. Dana Andrews decides to reinvestigate in the teeth of community hysteria. Based on a true story, with Kazan’s first use of all-location filming (in Stamford, Conn.) and, except for the five major parts, non-pro actors (including Kazan’s uncle Joe, the original of America, America). Approx. 88 min. DCP.
