A NIGHT AT THE EGYPTIAN WITH IRWIN WINKLER
One of the most successful and respected producers in Hollywood, Irwin Winkler (ROCKY, THE RIGHT STUFF, GOODFELLAS) has also established himself as a highly-talented director with GUILTY BY SUSPICION, NIGHT AND THE CITY, THE NET, AT FIRST SIGHT and the upcoming release LIFE AS A HOUSE, starring Kevin Kline. Please join us for a One-Night Tribute to Irwin Winkler, featuring two of his finest films as producer and director:
Brand-New 35 mm. Print! RAGING BULL, 1980, MGM/UA, 128 min. Widely regarded as one of the finest American movies of the past two decades, director Martin Scorseses masterpiece is a stunning b&w portrait of prizefighter Jake La Motta (Robert DeNiro) and his harrowing, destructive bouts in and out of the ring. Winner of Academy Awards for Best Actor (DeNiro) and Editing (Thelma Schoonmaker). With Cathy Moriarty, Joe Pesci.
GUILTY BY SUSPICION, 1991, Warner Classics, 105 min. Written and directed by Winkler, GUILTY BY SUSPICION is a gripping, beautifully-acted drama of the 1950s Communist witch hunts in Hollywood, starring Robert DeNiro as a successful director facing the blacklist and Annette Bening as his ex-wife. With George Wendt, Patricia Wettig, Sam Wanamaker.
