(1950, Edmund Goulding) On the trail of inept but slippery forger Edmund Gwenn (Miracle on 34th Street’s Santa), secret service man Burt Lancaster walks right past him, as U.N. translator Dorothy McGuire is passed a couple of phone bills.

BROADWAY BILL

2:20   6:15   

(1934, Frank Capra) Warner Baxter would rather race the eponymous thoroughbred than manage dad-in-law Walter Connolly’s paper box factory, while sister-in-law Myrna Loy encourages him to rebel against their stifling family. Screenplay by Riskin. “An irresistible blend of pathos and comedy.” – Clive Hirschhorn. 35mm print courtesy of Library of Congress. Approx. 104 min.
