DILLINGER

(1973, John Milius) The great Warren Oates is a dead ringer for the legendary bank robber in Milius’ directing debut, although the body count’s a multiple of the real one. Ben Johnson’s Melvin Purvis has his cigar lit before every shootout, a young Richard Dreyfuss cameos as Baby Face Nelson, and with a final disclaimer actually written by J. Edgar Hoover. Approx. 107 min. 35mm.

ESCAPE FROM ALCATRAZ

(1979, Don Siegel) Condemned to the Rock, Clint Eastwood shrugs off strip searches, shower brawls and racial tensions to find a special new use for snotty warden Patrick McGoohan’s nail clipper. Based on the only successful escape attempt from Alcatraz — well, bodies were never found — and arguably the darkest and quietest film from a major studio. Approx. 112 min. 35mm.
