DEAD MEN DON'T WEAR PLAID
1982, Universal, 88 min, Dir: Carl Reiner

Steve Martin is a private eye who interacts with some of film noir’s iconic characters thanks to gorgeous black-and-white cinematography and some extremely creative editing. Humphrey Bogart, Barbara Stanwyck, Alan Ladd and Ingrid Bergman (whose scenes were repurposed from NOTORIOUS) are just some of the famous faces you’ll spot!


THE JERK
1979, Universal, 94 min, Dir: Carl Reiner

Steve Martin plays the lovable idiot Navin R. Johnson, who leaves his poor black family behind to see the world. Bernadette Peters sings, dances, throws knives and plays the trumpet while M. Emmet Walsh shoots and curses his way into film history.
