RUGGLES OF RED GAP

(1935, Leo McCarey) Worst case scenario for Laughton’s snobbish gentleman’s gentleman: his master Roland Young casually informs him that he’s been lost in a poker game — and to an uncouth millionaire from one-horse Red Gap, Washington, U.S.A.! Laughton’s favorite among all his parts, with his rendition of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address a highlight. “Irresistible... the cast could hardly be better.” - Pauline Kael. Approx. 90 min. 35mm.

IF I HAD A MILLION

(1932) Dying millionaire Richard Bennett (father of Joan & Constance) chooses his 7 heirs at random from the phone book, recipients including Gary Cooper, W.C. Fields and, in the memorable Lubitsch-directed sequence, hapless clerk Laughton, with Bronxly explosive climax. Approx. 83 min. 35mm.
