SMILE & STAY HUNGRY
Thursday, February 7
(1979, Michael Ritchie) Bruce Dern, Barbara Feldon, Michael Kidd. 35mm. Approx. 113 min.
“Smile is such pungent surprise, a rollicking satire that misses few of the obvious targets, but without dehumanizing the victims. It's an especially American kind of social comedy in the way that great good humor sometimes is used to reveal unpleasant facts instead of burying them… Smile treats its beauty contestants without condescension. The girls are sometimes hugely funny and foolish, but they are also decent and appealing in their earnest efforts to be the Ann-Margrets of tomorrow.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times
(1976, Bob Rafelson) Jeff Bridges, Sally Field, Arnold Schwarzenegger. 35mm. Approx. 102 min.
“Bridges oozes carefree charm… Rafelson's sure feel for the inexpressible subtleties of emotional relationships is evident throughout.”
