(1935, William Wyler) Margaret Sullavan’s wide-eyed movie usherette Luisa Ginglebusher plays “good fairy” to struggling lawyer Herbert Marshall. Preston Sturges molded a Molnar play into an unsung classic of the comedy-rich 30s. Approx. 97 min. 35mm.
1:00, 4:25, 9:35
"Enlivened by scriptwriter Preston Sturges's wicked sophistication and sardonic digs at class pretensions... Sullavan's blend of determination and vulnerability is incandescent."
– Chicago Reader
(1933, William Wyler) Posh lawyer John Barrymore finds that he can’t escape his Lower East Side background. Directed by Wyler at vintage 30s breakneck pace. Approx. 82 min. 35mm.
"One of the few screen roles that reveal Barrymore’s measure as an actor. His ‘presence’ is apparent in every scene; so are his restraint; his humor; his zest."
– Pauline Kael
