THUNDERBOLT

5:25   8:40   

(1929, Josef von Sternberg) Josef von Sternberg’s first talkie stars George Bancroft as “Thunderbolt,” a gangster whose moll, Fay Wray, falls for handsome young bank clerk Richard Arlen. This Bancroft guy has no luck with the dames! “An almost frenetic night-club scene exploits the dramatic possibilities of multiple sources of sound.” – Peter Baxter. “Less a gangster film than a gangster fantasy.” – Andrew Sarris. 35mm. Approx. 85 min.

“Sternberg evokes a nerve-jangling city of macabre menace… [building] to a frenzied climax of raving, ironic grandeur.”
– Richard Brody, The New Yorker

(1931, William Beaudine) “Woman with a past” Lois Moran, engaged to a senator’s son, is blackmailed, then roped into a murder trial. Scripted by Robert Riskin. New 35mm print. Approx. 70 min.
