TWO WEEKS IN ANOTHER TOWN
Friday, December 8
Directed by Vincente Minnelli
Starring Kirk Douglas, Cyd Charisse and Edward G. Robinson
(1962) Washed-up ex-star Kirk Douglas restarts at the bottom as a dubber for Edward G. Robinson’s runaway Roman production; only a couple of problems: Douglas’ nasty ex Cyd Charisse is in town; brooding star George Hamilton stalks off; then Robinson goes down with a heart attack – second chance for Kirk? 35mm. Approx. 107 min.
“One of [Minnelli’s] last great pictures… The costumes, decor, and ‘Scope compositions show Minnelli at his most expressive, and the gaudy intensity—as well as the inside detail about the movie business—makes this compulsively watchable.”
– Jonathan Rosenbaum, The Chicago Reader
