FIVE STAR FINAL
Desperate for more readers, a sensation hungry newspaper editor dredges up a twenty year scandal bringing in its wake untold tragedy and doom. Bristling with Depression-era cynicism, this is one of period's most shattering dramas. Starring Edward G. Robinson, Marian Marsh, Boris Karloff, Ona Munson, George E. Stone. Cinematography by Sol Polito. Directed by Mervyn LeRoy. In B&W. Digital. 89 mins. 1931. Friday at 8:00 only.
Free-wheeling bail bondsman Bill Bailey has lots of friends in the criminal underworld and even more enemies in the D.A.'s office. But most of Bailey's friends are of the unreliable type--his only true friend is the alluring Ruby Darling, a sassy little hip-shaker who delights in thumbing her nose at society's elite. Lots of fireworks on the way in this rare pre-code crime drama! Starring George Bancroft, Judith Anderson, Frances Dee, Chick Chandler. Cinematography by James Van Trees. Directed by Rowland Brown. In B&W. 16mm film print. 65 mins. 1933. Friday at 6:30 and 9:45.
