Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
I’M NO ANGEL
Dir: Wesley Ruggles
Singing, dancing lion tamer Mae West goes from Big Bill Barton’s Wonder Show to the bright lights of the Big Apple in this saucy romantic comedy. Wealthy Cary Grant is one of the men smitten with West, until her past threatens their engagement. But Mae isn’t one to take “no” for an answer! The blonde sex symbol penned the dialogue to this pre-Code hit – arguably her best - enshrining such lines as “It's not the men in your life that count, it's the life in your men” in movie immortality.
Dir: Michael Curtiz, William Keighley
In what is commonly acknowledged as one of the most beautiful, spectacular early Technicolor films, swashbuckling Errol Flynn ("Welcome to Sherwood!") rescues lovely Olivia de Havilland from the evil clutches of Claude Rains and Basil Rathbone in a rousing adventure for the ages.
Writer-director Deepa Mehta deviates from her usual subject matter of pressing issues in Indian society to turn the camera toward more lighthearted fare: Bollywood cinema. Both a love letter to and a parody of the bombastic Bollywood tradition, this music-filled romantic romp gleefully embraces the clichés of the genre as it plays off of classic Shakespearean comedies of mistaken identity. In English, and Hindi and Spanish with English subtitles.
