THE GOOD FAIRY

(1935, William Wyler) Sturges molded a Molnar play into this unsung classic of the comedy-rich 30s, as Margaret Sullavan’s wide-eyed movie usherette Luisa Ginglebusher plays “good fairy” to struggling lawyer Herbert Marshall, despite amorous millionaire Frank Morgan. Approx. 97 min. 35mm.  
12:30, 4:05, 7:40

“AN EFFERVESCENT ROMANTIC COMEDY, [with] Margaret Sullavan in fine form as the picture of frustrated benevolence.”
Time Out New York

NEVER SAY DIE*

* The print of THIRTY-DAY PRINCESS, scheduled for today, has been lost in transit. In its place, we are screening NEVER SAY DIE (see info below)

(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.

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