Kevin Thomas Favorite Films:
IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT, 1934, Columbia (Sony), 105 min.
Dir. Frank Capra. The first film to win all five major Oscars (like a comedy
could ever pull that off today) remains a jewel of timing and charm, as runaway bride
Claudette Colbert finds herself saddled with pushy reporter Clark Gable, who
smells the story of his career. The legendary hitchhiking and "Walls of Jericho"
scenes are only the tip of this matchless comic tour de force. Screenplay by Robert
Riskin; with Walter Connolly, Alan Hale and Roscoe Karns. Kevin
Thomas will introduce the screening.

Dance Camera West
TANGO (TANGO, NO ME DEJES NUNCA), 1998, New Yorker Films,
115 min. Director Carlos Sauras latest dance film reunite him with cinematographer
Storaro in another exhilarating celebration of dance, this time enclosing its stunning
numbers within a backstage-musical pot line. In one breathtaking number after another,
passion is transformed into art as the film builds towards a tour-de-force climax.
