Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
Dir: John Cromwell
Flat-out the best “women behind bars” movie ever made. Sentenced to prison for her role in a failed robbery that killed her husband, vulnerable innocent Marie Allen (Oscar-nominated Eleanor Parker) undergoes a degrading transformation in “the joint.” Parker gives the performance of her career, supported by a cell block of sensational actresses: Agnes Moorehead, Hope Emerson, Betty Garde, Jan Sterling, Lee Patrick, Jane Darwell and many more. A classic!
The irresistible, triumphant musical tale of a nun (Julie Andrews) who becomes the nanny for the seven children of the widowed Austrian Captain Von Trapp (Christopher Plummer), winning their hearts and eventually their father's as well. As the Nazis take control of their homeland (where “the hills are alive with the sound of music”), the family finds comfort in each other and in song. An Oscar winner for Best Picture and Robert Wise's flawless direction. Featuring "The Sound of Music," "My Favorite Things," and more of your favorite songs! Co-starring Eleanor Parker, Anna Lee, Marni Nixon and Angela Cartwright, with a wonderful script by Ernest Lehman.
