Double Feature!
GONE TO EARTH / A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH
GONE TO EARTH
1950, Disney, 110 min, UK, Dir: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

One of Powell and Pressburger’s most gloriously mystical films, GONE TO EARTH stars the enchanting Jennifer Jones as an orphaned country girl, who lives surrounded by magic, superstition and wild forest animals. David Farrar (BLACK NARCISSUS) co-stars as the aristocratic squire who finds himself bewitched by Jones’ charms.


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.
