Starring Joan Crawford. Directed by Charles Waters. A classic film of the Hollywood Regency era, watching Torch Song is like staring at perfectly lit costume jewelry – all icy beauty, saturated color, glitter and artifice. The sets, the costumes, the script, Joan Crawford’s eyebrows – all seem larger than life. Filmed in gorgeous Technicolor, this is one of Joan Crawford’s last great roles; she has become a caricature of herself as The Star. It works brilliantly in this film – but discerning viewers will see that the mirror has cracked. 90 minutes. Not rated.

Starring Ethel Waters, Eddie ‘Rochester’ Anderson and Lena Horne. Directed by Vincente Minelli and Busby Berkeley. “Cabin in the Sky was a Broadway musical before it was made into a movie. The stage version of Cabin in the Sky was so successful that Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) decided to buy the movie rights and make it into a film. To help ensure the movie’s success, MGM decided to use popular, well-known African-American stars in the film. At the top of the list were Ethel Waters, Lena Horne and Eddie Anderson.

Starring Charles Laughton and Maureen O’Hara. Directed by William Dieterle. Sometimes, you’ve got to love a monster – or as one of the characters in this film says: ‘Ugliness is fascinating.’ With Charles Laughton as the hunchback, that is certainly true. “The Hunchback of Notre Dame is an outstanding adaptation of the Victor Hugo novel, set in fifteenth century France. One of the biggest budget films of its era, the sets are imposing, the cast is first rate, and the script is excellent. Charles Laughton is the Hunchback, deformed but spry and intelligent.

Join Fresh City Life for our third annual Anti-Valentine’s Day Party.

Audrey Tautou, star of the modern romance classic, Amelie, plays Angelique, a young woman whose object of affection may be in question. It’s a surprising, quirky film that will make you fall in love with restraining orders all over again.
