January 26 – RED DUST (1932) – Clark Gable and Jean Harlow provide steamy, sexy fun on a rubber plantation in Southeast Asia, with macho Gable caught between hooker Harlow and married “lady” Mary Astor. Made in the racy pre-Code era, it’s an eye-opening, modern take on the subject of desire.
February 2 – LAURA (1944) – One of the screen’s great murder mysteries, set among cultural elites in chic, sophisticated Manhattan. Even with gorgeous Gene Tierney in the title role and Dana Andrews as the tough-guy detective, LAURA is stolen by Clifton Webb in one of the more blatant and fascinating classic-era screen portraits of a gay man.
February 9 – LADY FOR A DAY (1933) – It’s the Cinderella story that put Frank Capra (It’s a Wonderful Life) on the map, a Best Picture Oscar nominee. Capra himself remade this wonderful Damon Runyon comedy as POCKETFUL OF MIRACLES (1961), but the remake can’t compete with this enchanting original.
February 16 – ROYAL WEDDING (1951) – If you were charmed by Jane Powell’s October appearance as the honored guest of the Black Bear Film Festival, then you must see her in all her glory opposite Fred Astaire in this charming, colorful musical about a brother-and-sister dance team.
February 23 – THE GOOD FAIRY (1935) – William Wyler, the director who later gave us the magic of ROMAN HOLIDAY (1953), made this equally entrancing romantic comedy about a grown-up orphan (Margaret Sullavan) and her good-deed philosophy. Frank Morgan (The Wizard of Oz) is hilarious as the horny millionaire hopelessly trying to woo her.
March 1 – PORTRAIT OF JENNIE (1948) – A dramatic fantasy and one of the most romantic movies ever made, it’s about a love that falls outside the boundaries of time. Joseph Cotten is the struggling painter, and Jennifer Jones is the enigmatic Jennie, but can time bend enough to keep them together?
