THE AWFUL TRUTH / THEODORA GOES WILD
4K DCP!

THE AWFUL TRUTH
1937, Sony Repertory, 92 min, USA, Dir: Leo McCarey

Leo McCarey won a Best Director Oscar for this side-splitting masterpiece in which Irene Dunne and Cary Grant decide to divorce - but darn it, it just doesn’t seem to take. With Ralph Bellamy (in his defining "other man" role), Alex D’Arcy, (Miss) Cecil Cunningham and Joyce Compton, who steals the show with her unique rendition of "Gone With the Wind."


35 mm!

THEODORA GOES WILD
1936, Sony Repertory, 94 min, USA, Dir: Richard Boleslawski

Irene Dunne’s first big comedy role casts her as a small-town gal with a dark secret: She writes racy bestsellers! When enamored publisher Melvyn Douglas figures it out, he shows up on her doorstep and threatens to, uh, expose her if she doesn’t give him a tumble! With Thomas Mitchell, Thurston Hall and Spring Byington, based on a story by Mary McCarthy (Kevin’s sister).
