Twentieth CenturyTwentieth Century (1934)
Dir. Howard Hawks
Feat. John Barrymore, Carole Lombard
Cracking good comedy staged aboard a luxury express-train, where egomaniac theatre producer John Barrymore attempts to win back once-protégé Carole Lombard. From a Hecht-MacArthur script, this can be counted among the best of the screwball era.
Murder, My SweetMurder, My Sweet (1944)
Dir. Edward Dmytryk
Feat. Dick Powell, Claire Trevor, Anne Shirley
An iconic 'noir' whose unsavoury storyline is taken from Raymond Chandler's classic novel. Powell plays a detective dragged into a murky case of blackmail and homicide, while he searches for a hoodlum's lost girlfriend and missing necklace. Notably faithful to Chandler's particular brand of sardonic black…
Swing TimeSwing Time (1936)
Dir. George Stevens
Feat. Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers
A fine example of Fred and Ginger's magical screen partnership, their sixth together, weaving the music of Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields, into another beguiling romantic comedy. Songs include A Fine Romance, Pick Yourself Up, and The Way You Look Tonight.
Model ShopModel Shop (1969)
Dir. Jacques Demy
Feat. Anouk Aimee, Gary Lockwood, Alexandra Hay
A mesmerizing, shamefully neglected stateside film from French New Wave director Jacques Demy that follows an aimless, unemployed architect who ends up falling in love with a French model. A slow-burn drama that deftly captures the zeitgeist of late 60's L.A.
Destry Rides AgainDestry Rides Again (1939)
Dir. George Marshall
Feat. James Stewart, Marlene Dietrich, Una Merkel
James Stewart is once again a mild-mannered law-man while Marlene Dietrich makes her most sensational Hollywood turn as exotic saloon girl 'Frenchy'. Fabulous fun is capped off by the infamous Dietrich-Una Merkel catfight.
SecondsSeconds (1966)
Dir. John Frankenheimer
Feat. Rock Hudson
Boldly experimental thriller from the director of THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, in which a bored businessman opts for a new, 'more fulfilling' identity (complete with plastic surgery - he ends up as Rock Hudson) through the help of a mysterious organisation. Despite its 'dime-store Kafka' pretensions, the visual…
No Way to Treat a LadyNo Way to Treat a Lady (1968)
Dir. Jack Smight
Feat. Rod Steiger, Lee Remick, George Segal
Macabre cat-and-mouse thriller from the pen of suspense-master William Goldman (MARATHON MAN), about a psychotic master of disguise (Rod Steiger) who commits murders then gleefully phones in clues to detective George Segal.
