Citizen Kane

directed by Orson Welles in English starring Orson Welles, Joseph Cotten, Dorothy Comingore (1941)

Orson Welles’ masterwork (#1 in the American Film Institute’s list of Best American Movies) remains grand entertainment, sharply acted (starring many of Welles’ Mercury Players on the road to thriving film careers) and directed with inspired visual flair.

Chronicling the stormy life of an influential publishing tycoon, this “Best Original Screenplay” Academy Award winner is rooted in themes of power, corruption, vanity—the American Dream lost in the mystery of a dying man’s last word: “Rosebud.”

A classic to this day, Citizen Kane has only grown in stature since its release, although it wasn’t exactly ignored at the time of its 1941 premiere, garnering nine Oscar nominations, including “Best Picture.”

The Lady Eve

directed by Preston Sturges in English starring Barbara Stanwyck, Henry Fonda, Charles Coburn (1941)

Preston Sturges is at it again. The ingenious writer-director spins out a sinfully romantic comedy in The Lady Eve, and the “lady” of the title is Barbara Stanwyck. She’s a calculating card shark who fleeces passengers on transatlantic ocean liners. When she discovers that an ingenious young millionaire (Henry Fonda) is on board, the scheming Stanwyck figures he’ll be a pushover if she plays her cards right. Sure enough, he does fall for her, but surprise – she also falls for him. When he’s tipped off that true romance is not in the cards because she’s giving him a fast shuffle, Fonda’s fondness fades. Now Stanwyck realizes that if she wants to win him back, she’s got to stop her double-dealing, and she does but not before she turns up a few tricks of her own.

The Maltese Falcon

directed by John Huston in English starring Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, Sydney Greenstreet (1941)

Nominated for three Academy Awards, including “Best Picture,” The Maltese Falcon is the film noir classic starring Humphrey Bogart as tough San Francisco private detective Sam Spade.

The film details this classic story of Spade’s involvement with a deadly band of international thieves who will lie, double-cross, and murder to obtain a small, jewel-encrusted statue known as the Maltese Falcon. Spade’s (Bogart) partner, Miles Archer (Jerome Cowan), accepts a job protecting a young woman (Mary Astor). Neither Spade nor Archer believe the woman or the story she tells them, but they do believe her money. Then, when Archer is murdered, Spade’s search for the killer drags him in the web of lies and death spun by the desperate people seeking the now-famous statue.



Sat 30 Apr


directed by Alfred Hitchcock in English starring Joan Fontaine, Cary Grant (1941)

From the master of suspense, director Alfred Hitchcock, comes this Oscar-winning thriller about a wealthy wallflower who suspects her penniless playboy husband of trying to murder her. Hitchcock directs Cary Grant and Joan Fontaine in the classic 1941 thriller, Suspicion.

Handsome, charming, well-liked Johnnie Aysgarth (Grant) is a worthless cheat, so when he marries Lina McLaidlaw (Fontaine), the naïve daughter of a wealthy retired general (Sir Cedric Hardwicke), everyone except Lina believes Johnnie is only after his wife’s inheritance. But her love changes to suspicion after she discovers that Johnnie has stolen money, his business partner has died mysteriously, and she finds a letter explaining her life insurance policy.

This true Hitchcock masterpiece was nominated for three Oscars, including Best Picture, and winning Best Actress for Fontaine.
