A SAFE PLACE
1971, Sony Pictures Repertory, 89 min, USA, Dir: Henry Jaglom

In Henry Jaglom’s directorial debut, Tuesday Weld is superb as a troubled flower child in New York City being pulled between two very different men (played by Jack Nicholson and the Firesign Theatre’s Phil Proctor) and seeking refuge in soothing memories (like that of magician Orson Welles).


SOLDIER IN THE RAIN
1963, Warner Bros., 88 min, USA, Dir: Ralph Nelson

Steve McQueen and Jackie Gleason star in this military buddy comedy as Sergeants Eustis Clay and Maxwell Slaughter, the former a country bumpkin and the latter an aging career soldier with his glory days behind him. Tuesday Weld co-stars as dizzy teenager Bobby Jo Pepperdine.


THIEF
1981, Park Circus/MGM, 122 min, USA, Dir: Michael Mann

Director Michael Mann's stunning debut feature stars James Caan as the professional thief of the title, a man whose desire for domestic tranquility clashes with his obligations in the underworld. Featuring a cast of standout supporting performances, with Jim Belushi as Caan's partner, Willie Nelson as his mentor and Robert Prosky as the deadly boss he has to please.
