SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS
Sidney Falco, an unctuous Broadway press agent butts heads with J. J. Hunsecker, New York's most influential and vicious newspaper columnist. It seems that poor Falco was assigned the task of breaking up the romance between Hunsecker's neurotic young sister and a loose cannon jazz musician. Hunsecker doesn't seem to be pleased with Falco's lack of progress. An unforgettable panorama of late night manners and morals. Starring Burt Lancaster, Tony Curtis, Susan Harrison, Martin Milner, and Barbara Nichols. Featuring the music of the Chico Hamilton Quintet. Photographed by James Wong Howe. Written by Ernest Lehman and Clifford Odets. Directed by Alexander Mackendrick. In B&W. 35mm Studio Print. 96 mins. 1957. SAT at 3:30 and 7:30.
ALL NIGHT LONG
Aurelius Rex, a brilliant black orchestra leader comes to believe his beautiful white wife is having a steamy affair with another musician, an idea put in his head by the conniving drummer in his band. A stunning, modern retelling of Shakespeare's OTHELLO which will completely catch you off guard. A total classic. On-screen jazz performances by Dave Brubeck, Charles Mingus, and Johnny Dankworth (as themselves) and a fair amount of marijuana inhalation all contribute to an uncommonly noir palette. Starring Patrick McGoohan, Marti Stevens, Keith Mitchell, Paul Harris, and Betsy Blair. Photographed by Edward Scaife. Directed by Basil Dearden. In B&W. Archive Digital. 91 mins. 1961. SAT at 1:30, 5:30, and 9:30.
