AMERICAN MADNESS & THE MIRACLE WOMAN

Tuesday, March 26

DOUBLE FEATURE: Two films for one admission. Tickets purchased entitle patrons to stay and see the following film at no additional charge.

AMERICAN MADNESS

2:20   

(1932, Frank Capra) Bank president Walter Huston insists on lending on “character” collateral, despite an almost-cheating wife, embezzling cashier, and spectacular bank run. Told with pin-point editing and Riskin’s machine-gun dialogue, this is “one of the most beautifully assembled, lighted and photographed pictures of the 30s…the main décor of a vast bank interior composes an incredible Deco Temple of Babylon.” – Elliott Stein. 4K DCP restoration. Approx. 75 min.

THE MIRACLE WOMAN

12:30   

(1931, Frank Capra) Embittered minister’s daughter Barbara Stanwyck becomes a give-‘em-what-they-want evangelist (based on Aimee Semple McPherson), until blind man David Manners makes her see the light. Highlights: Stany preaching inside a cage of lions and a climactic conflagration. Adapted by Jo Swerling from Riskin’s Broadway play Bless You Sister. DCP restoration. Approx. 90 min.
