W.C. Fields’ most enduringly popular feature THE BANK DICK casts him as a layabout who inadvertently catches a bank robber and is "rewarded" with a job as the bank’s security guard. It's followed by an 80th anniversary screening of TILLIE AND GUS, costarring Alison Skipworth and Baby LeRoy!
Carole Lombard acquires tramp William Powell during a scavenger hunt and makes him her butler, whereupon he teaches her a few lessons about being human in screwball classic MY MAN GODFREY; in MY SISTER EILEEN, Rosalind Russell and Janet Blair are sisters who move to the big city among eccentric neighbors and - in a cameo appearance - The Three Stooges.
Rosalind Russell is ace newsman Hildy Johnson and Cary Grant is cynical editor Walter Burns in rapid-fire-dialogue-ridden HIS GIRL FRIDAY, screening in a new print. In Billy Wilder's wartime farce THE MAJOR AND THE MINOR, Ginger Rogers is a woman who masquerades as a 12-year-old girl for cheaper train fare - and army man Ray Milland doesn't notice the truth.
