(1942, Preston Sturges) Slated to shoot the sequel to his boffo Ants in Your Pants of 1939, director Joel McCrea would rather make socially-significant O Brother, Where Art Thou?, so he sets out to explore Human Misery, with peekaboo-hairdoed Veronica Lake along for the ride. “A brilliant fantasy in two keys.” – James Agee. 35mm. Approx. 91 min.
