MAD WEDNESDAY

(1947) Icon of the 40s directs Icon of the 20s: Sturges begins with the football finale of Harold Lloyd’s 1925 The Freshman, then flashes forward two decades to find Harold as a dead end, soon-to-be-fired bookkeeper. But trying his first drink ever, Harold suddenly goes haywire. A superior re-edited version of The Sin of Harold Diddlebock. Approx. 79 min. 35mm.
12:30, 3:50, 7:10, 10:30

“The slapstick equivalent of Death of a Salesman.”
– Raymond Durgnat

NEVER SAY DIE

(1939, Elliot Nugent) Hypochondriacal Bob Hope is convinced his body will digest itself within 30 days, so he seeks a cure in a European health spa overrun by rich Americans — surely the invention of Sturges, who worked with two other writers. With Martha Raye. Approx. 80 min. 35mm. 
2:10, 5:30, 8:50

“The most enjoyable film for weeks… Consistently absurd.”
– Graham Greene
