'LOST RKOS's"

The American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre presents "The Lost RKO’s" on Sunday, April 1st. This trio of ‘lost’ films were recently acquired by Turner Classic Movies (TCM). The triple feature includes: STINGAREE (1934, RKO) starring Irene Dunne and Richard Dix in a 19th century adventure of an Australian bandit and the maid whom he falls in love with, in between hold ups; DOUBLE HARNESS (1933, RKO) with Ann Harding as a woman who marries a lazy San Francisco shipping heir (William Powell) even though he has a wandering eye for other women and RAFTER ROMANCE (1933, RKO) starring Ginger Rogers and Norman Foster as tenants forced to time-share an attic apartment because they were late on their rent. None of these films are available on DVD.

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) recently acquired rights to six virtually lost films released by RKO Studios, movies originally owned by producer Merian C. Cooper and later by Selznick International executive Ernest L. Scanlon. TCM, in collaboration with the Library of Congress and Brigham Young University, have been busy restoring the films - DOUBLE HARNESS (1933), ONE MAN’S JOURNEY (1933), RAFTER ROMANCE (1933), STINGAREE (1934), LIVING ON LOVE (1937) and A MAN TO REMEMBER (1939) - all to air later in 2007 on the TCM network.

 

Sunday, April 1 - 5:00 PM

Restored 35 mm print!

STINGAREE (1934, RKO, 73 min.), directed by William Wellman. CIMARRON stars Irene Dunne and Richard Dix reunited for this rousing adventure (with songs) about a 19th-century Australian bandit and the maid — who aspires to be an opera singer — he woos in-between hold-ups. As strange and delightful as its title character’s name, with lovely location work at Sherwood Forest (the one in California). Gus Kahn and Max Steiner were among the songwriters; the splendid supporting cast includes Conway Tearle, Mary Boland, Andy Devine, Una O’Connor, Reginald Owen and Snub Pollard. NOT ON DVD

 

Sunday, April 1 - 7:30 PM

Double Feature!

Restored 35 mm print! DOUBLE HARNESS (1933, RKO, 69 min.), directed by John Cromwell. This glossy Pre-code soaper stars Ann Harding as a woman who pursues and eventually marries lazy San Francisco shipping heir William Powell, even though she senses he has no interest in settling down to monogamy. (And when your mistress is Lilian Bond, why would you?) A witty and captivating melodrama that’s surprisingly timely; Lucile Browne, Henry Stephenson, George Meeker and Reginald Owen co-star. NOT ON DVD

Next on the same bill is a restored 35 mm print of RAFTER ROMANCE (1933, RKO), directed by William A. Seiter. Zesty little comedy in which Ginger Rogers and Norman Foster, both three months behind in the rent, are forced to time-share an attic apartment: they work different shifts, so they never see each other. Can this romance develop? Come and find out. Rollicking fun with George Sidney, Robert Benchley, Laura Hope Crews and Guinn "Big Boy" Williams adding their own unique styles of mirth-making. Thespian Foster later went on to direct films himself, including noirs JOURNEY INTO FEAR and KISS THE BLOOD OFF OF MY HANDS. NOT ON DVD

April 27 – May 3 > [Spielberg Theatre]

THE FAR SIDE OF JERICHO, 2007, First Look Pictures, 99 min. The opposite of recent "dark" westerns, this low-budget femme oater/homage to John Wayne and Randolph Scott movies just wants to have a good time. Both director Tim Hunter (RIVER’S EDGE), and hard-boiled cult writer James Crumley (THE LAST GOOD KISS), who co-wrote the script, like their westerns straight-up and action-packed with lots of dark humor. The result is a pistol-packing, great-looking, widescreen entertainment shot in spectacular New Mexico locations – a treat for those who like their westerns short on symbolism and tall in the saddle. Three widows of outlaw gang members are forced to flee a posse and villains who think the women know where their dead husbands’ loot is buried. On the perilous journey that includes run-ins with Indians, Pinkerton agents, and even a few surly ghosts, they have the opportunity to become better friends – if they manage to survive. The three "character actress" leads, Judith Burnett, Suzanne Andrews and Lissa Negrin are best friends in real life, and the salty supporting cast includes Patrick Bergin as a corrupt sheriff and James Gammon as a decidedly homicidal preacher. Co-starring John Diehl, C. Thomas Howell. On Saturday April 28, discussion following with director Tim Hunter and actress/producer Lissa Negrin.
