A TRIBUTE TO THE OSCARS
Double Feature! Tribute to Screenwriter Oscar Brodney!
HARVEY / THE GLENN MILLER STORY
HARVEY
1950, Universal, 104 min, USA, Dir: Henry Koster

Easily the greatest movie ever made starring a 6-foot-3-inch invisible rabbit. Jimmy Stewart gives his own favorite performance as Elwood P. Dowd, a perfectly nice guy whose best pal nobody can see, leading his sister (Oscar winner Josephine Hull) to try to get him committed. Featuring Cecil Kellaway, Wallace Ford and, in his film debut, Jesse White. Based on Mary Chase’s play (in which Stewart previously starred), written to cheer up a neighbor whose son was killed in WWII. A warm, wonderful and truly ageless comedy!


THE GLENN MILLER STORY
1954, Universal, 115 min, Dir: Anthony Mann

James Stewart stars in this involving biopic of the influential swing band leader, who rose to fame with such hits as “Moonlight Serenade” before joining the Army Air Force Band and perishing in a plane crash during WWII. An Oscar winner for Best Sound (and a nominee for Best Screenplay and Score), the film features June Allyson as Miller’s supportive wife, with cameos from such musical luminaries as Louis Armstrong and Gene Krupa.
