Sun February 19th: Editor’s Pick

3:00, 6:00 at Museum of the Moving Image [Program & Tix]

A very special Barbara Stanwyck double bill to commemorate the publication of “Barbara Stanwyck: The Miracle Woman” by Alt Screen Contributing Editor Dan Callahan. Dan will introduce both films and sign copies of his book in the Moving Image gift store between screenings.

 

THE LADY EVE
Sturges | 1941 | US | 94m
*Intro by author Dan Callahan!
3:00* at MOMI

“A frivolous masterpiece, a mixture of visual and verbal slapstick, and of high artifice and pratfalls. Barbara Stanwyck keeps sticking out a sensational leg, and Henry Fonda keeps tripping over it; neither performer has ever been funnier. The film is full of classic moments and classic lines; it represents the dizzy high point of Sturges’s comedy.”
Pauline Kael, 5001 Nights at the Movies [Read More]
 

FORTY GUNS
Fuller | 1957 | US | 79m
*Intro by author Dan Callahan!
6:00* at MOMI

“Fuller’s wild, wonderful, semicoherent black-and-white ‘Scope western fully announces his talent as an avant-garde filmmaker, even in this unlikeliest of genres. A lot of delirious violence, perverse sexuality, imaginative visual energy, and several startling plot twists – if you’ve ever wondered why Godard and other French New Wave directors deify Fuller, this movie explains it all.”
Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader [Read More]
