Two comedy classics by director Jacques Tati! First, Tati’s feature debut as director is a priceless showcase for his comedic talents, as he plays a mailman attempting to streamline delivery in his small town. Then, the film debut of Monsieur Hulot finds the irascible Frenchman on vacation in a petite resort town. Both in French with English subtitles.
Our double feature of French favorites salutes director Henri-Georges Clouzot. First, a reconstruction/documentary look at his legendary unfinished 1964 film INFERNO. Then, in THE TRUTH, Brigitte Bardot is a hedonistic free spirit on trial for the murder of her lover.
Jean-Luc Godard double feature! First, crooks Jean-Paul Belmondo & Anna Karina head for the South of France. Then, Brigitte Bardot plays a woman whose marriage to her screenwriter husband comes to an end over the course of a day on the Isle of Capri.

Our tribute to Budd Boetticher includes these two Westerns the director made with star Randolph Scott. In 7 MEN FROM NOW, Scott stars as a tight-lipped sheriff relentlessly hunting the men who killed his wife. In BUCHANAN RIDES ALONE, he stars as a former mercenary, carrying $2,000 in blood money, trapped in a border town by a corrupt family. Introduction by author Jeremy Arnold.
Turner Classic Movies' The Essentials author Jeremy Arnold introduces this double feature of must-see films. In the noirish LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN, novelist Cornell Wilde falls for gorgeous Gene Tierney, but has no idea of the darkness lurking behind those emerald eyes. Then, the Universal horror classic BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, in which the Monster (Boris Karloff) demands a mate.
