Thursday, February 26

(1962, Otto Preminger) Secretary of State confirmation hearings, as Henry Fonda and Burgess Meredith re-create Alger Hiss and Whittaker Chambers amid lengthy single-take shots, most notably with President Franchot Tone on a destroyer; and with Laughton’s last great performance, as an impeccably-accented, sleepily-smiling Southern senator. Approx. 139 min. 35mm. Restored by the Academy Film Archive with funding from the Andrew J. Kuehn Jr. Foundation
