CHRISTMAS IN CONNECTICUT
1945, Warner Bros. , 101 min, Dir: Peter Godfrey

Barbara Stanwyck stars as a famous expert on marriage, cooking and homemaking who is asked by her publisher to host a national hero for Christmas dinner at her Connecticut home. It should be simple, but she must scramble to keep the secret that she's single, can't cook and doesn't own a home. With a lot of help, meticulous planning and split-second timing, the urban sophisticate may succeed … but the unforeseen happens when she falls in love with her guest in this classic romantic comedy.


THE TWO MRS. CARROLLS
1947, Warner Bros., 99 min, USA, Dir: Peter Godfrey

Humphrey Bogart gives one of his strongest - if barely known - performances as a mentally disturbed painter whose second wife (sensational Barbara Stanwyck) gradually realizes her husband’s preferred medium is… murder! Released at the height of public fascination with the Bogart-Bacall romance, the film flopped and has rarely been revived in recent decades. Here’s a chance to see Bogart at his most deliciously villainous, opposite one of the greatest actresses in Hollywood history, and a wicked and witty Alexis Smith. “You’ll see the tensest star-teaming in years! You’ll see excitement to keep your pulse jiggling!”
