THE AERO THEATRE TURNS 75
Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger Double Feature!
A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH / BLACK NARCISSUS
A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH
STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN
1946, Sony Repertory, 104 min, UK, Dir: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

A breathtaking meditation on the mercies of love and the cruelties of fate, A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH stars David Niven as a WWII pilot pleading his case in Heaven, claiming that he was not meant to die and should be allowed to return to lovely Kim Hunter on earth. Roger Livesey co-stars as the doctor who becomes Niven’s solicitor on the astral plane, with the delightful Marius Goring as a dandified angel.


BLACK NARCISSUS
1947, MGM Repertory, 99 min, UK, Dir: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s exquisite (and surprisingly erotic) drama of spiritual devotion and earthly temptation stars the luminous Deborah Kerr as a nun nearly overwhelmed by the physical beauty of her new Himalayan home, and the worldly charms of rugged David Farrar. Widely hailed as one of the most visually stunning films ever made (courtesy of Jack Cardiff’s Oscar-winning cinematography). Co-starring Sabu, Jean Simmons, Flora Robson. "Color, sex, exotic locations - it was a big hit in austerity-stricken England!" - Michael Powell
