ALL THE KING’S MEN

(1949, Robert Rossen) Broderick Crawford’s self-described hick Willie Starks speaks up for his kind en route to the governor’s mansion – but then… From Robert Penn Warren’s novel, based on the rise of Louisiana’s Huey Long. Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Actor (Crawford), and Supporting Actress Mercedes McCambridge. 35mm. Approx. 109 mins.

“A rousing melodrama, full of graft, double-dealing, and strong-arm excitement.”
– Pauline Kael

“Rossen retains his grip throughout; and the performances (Crawford, Ireland and McCambridge especially) are superb.”
– Tom Milne, Time Out (London)

BORN YESTERDAY

NEW RESTORATION

(1950, George Cukor) Thin-skinned bully junkman Broderick Crawford hires intellectual William Holden to give some couth to “dumb broad” girlfriend Judy Holliday – in the role that won her an Oscar against some stiff competition (look it up). DCP restoration. Approx. 103 mins.
4:10, 8:25

“Still a delight.”
– David Thomson

“MAGIC! A very simple idea, but enlivened by a sharp, witty script, and by Cukor’s effortless handling of the brilliant performances: especially fine are Holliday as the dumb blonde who makes good, and Crawford as the confused sugar-daddy…”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London)
