GEORGE KENNEDY REMEMBERED
Double Feature!
THUNDERBOLT AND LIGHTFOOT / THE EIGER SANCTION
35 mm!

THUNDERBOLT AND LIGHTFOOT
1974, Park Circus/MGM, 114 min, USA, Dir: Michael Cimino

Writer-director Michael Cimino’s first film is a terrific, offbeat heist film and modern-day Western, with pro thief Clint Eastwood trying to elude murderous ex-partners George Kennedy and Geoffrey Lewis with aid from gentle-souled drifter Jeff Bridges. THUNDERBOLT constantly surprises with ingenious plot twists, character-driven humor and a wistful sweetness that is all too rare in most action films.


35 mm!

THE EIGER SANCTION
1975, Universal, 123 min, Dir: Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood plays art history scholar and professional mountain climber - and one-time assassin! - Jonathan Hemlock, who is blackmailed into coming out of retirement for one last job. Infiltrating a professional mountain-climbing team to find his target, Hemlock joins forces with his old friend and fellow climber Ben Bowman (George Kennedy). Spectacular photography, riveting set pieces and a pair of terrific performances by Eastwood and Kennedy anchor this incredibly entertaining action epic.
