Kips Bay Library Presents Throwback Thursday Theater: Some Like it Hot
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Inc. Rating NR, Runtime 105 minutes, Release Year 1959; Director Billy Wilder Synopsis The launching pad for Billy Wilder's comedy classic was a rusty old German farce, Fanfares of Love, whose two main characters were male musicians so desperate to get a job that they disguise themselves as women and play with an all-girl band in gangster-dominated 1929 Chicago. In this version, musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) lose their jobs when a speakeasy owned…

Movies @ Kips Bay Library Presents Book to Movie Adaptations: Forrest Gump
Paramount Pictures Rating PG-13, Runtime 142 minutes, Release Year 1994; Director Robert Zemeckis Synopsis "Stupid is as stupid does," says Forrest Gump (played by Tom Hanks in an Oscar-winning performance) as he discusses his relative level of intelligence with a stranger while waiting for a bus. Despite his sub-normal IQ, Gump leads a truly charmed life, with a ringside seat for many of the most memorable events of the second half of the 20th century. Entirely without trying, Forrest teac…

Kips Bay Library Presents Throwback Thursday Theater: Waterloo Bridge
Warner Bros. Rating NR, Runtime 103 minutes, Release Year 1940; Director Mervyn LeRoy Synopsis Given the omnipresence of the Motion Picture Production Code in 1940, the second film version of Robert E. Sherwood's Waterloo Bridge would have to be laundered and softened to pass muster. In the original, made in 1931, the heroine is nothing more or less than a streetwalker, patrolling London's Waterloo Bridge during World War I in hopes of picking up the occasional soldier. She falls in love with…

Movies @ Kips Bay Library Presents Book to Movie Adaptations:The Lieutenant's Woman
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Inc. Rating R, Runtime 127 minutes, Release Year 1981; Director Karel Reisz Synopsis John Fowles' original novel The French Lieutenant's Woman was distinguished by a literary technique that involved telling a story of Victorian sexual and social oppression within the bounds of a 1970s viewpoint. How does one convey this time-frame dichotomy on film? The decision made by director Karel Reisz and Harold Pinter was to frame Fowles' basic plot within a "modern" context of t…

Kips Bay Library Presents Throwback Thursday Theater: The Palm Beach Story
Universal Pictures Rating NR, Runtime 90 minutes, Release Year, 1942; Director Preston Sturges Synopsis As for the opening reels, the principal motivating factor is money. After a deliberately confusing pre-credit sequence (not explained until the film's punch line), Tom Jeffers (Joel McCrea) and Gerry Jeffers (Claudette Colbert) are married. "And so they lived happily ever after," exults a title card, "...or did they?" Well, they didn't. After five years of marriage, Tom hasn't raised a di…

Movies @ Kips Bay Library Presents Book to Movie Adaptations: A Passage To India
Columbia Pictures Industries Inc. Rating, PG Runtime 157 minutes, Release Year 1984; Director David Lean Synopsis A Passage to India, director David Lean's final film (for which he also received editing credit), breaks no new ground cinematically, but remains an exquisitely assembled harkback to such earlier Lean epics as Doctor Zhivago and Ryan's Daughter. Based on the novel by E. M. Forster, the film is set in colonial India in 1924. Adela Quested (Judy Davis), a sheltered, well-educated…

Kips Bay Library Presents Throwback Thursday Theater: The RainMaker
Paramount Pictures Rating NR, Runtime 120 minutes, Release Year 1956; Director Joseph Anthony Synopsis N. Richard Nash's play The Rainmaker has always attracted the most flamboyant of performers, and this 1956 film version is no exception. Burt Lancaster all but bursts from the screen with his arm-waving portrayal of a confidence artist who works the drought-ridden Southwest, promising to bring rain for a flat fee of a hundred bucks. During his latest campaign, Lancaster takes up residence…

Kips Bay Library Presents Throwback Thursday Theater: By The Light of The Silvery Moon
Warner Bros. Rating NR, Runtime 102 minutes, Release Year 1953; Director David Butler Synopsis By the Light of the Silvery Moon was a sequel to Warner Bros' On Moonlight Bay (1951); both films were loosely based on the "Penrod" stories by Booth Tarkington. Penrod himself (played by Billy Gray) takes a back seat to the main plot, concerning the hot-and-cold romance between Doris Day and Gordon MacRae. Gordon will not marry Doris until he is financially able to do so, which results in several b…

Kips Bay Library Presents Throwback Thursday Theater: The ScapeGoat
Warner Bros. Rating NR, Runtime 91 minutes, Release Year 1959; Director Robert Hamer Synopsis In this uneven but well-acted mystery story with a few gaps in the plot here and there, Alec Guiness plays a double role. He is John Barratt, a British teacher on vacation in France who is conned into taking on another identity. The identity he assumes is that of his double, Count Jacques de Gue, who has none of John's upright, moral character. Once ensconced as the Count, John discovers that the Cou…

Kips Bay Library Presents Throwback Thursday Theater:A Star is Born
Warner Bros. Rating PG, Runtime, 176 minutes, Release Year 1954; Director George Cukor The 1954 musical remake of A Star is Born could have been titled <I>A Star is Reborn</I>, in that it represented the triumphal return to the screen of Judy Garland after a four-year absence. The remake adheres closely to the plotline of the 1937 original: An alcoholic film star, on his last professional legs, gives a career boost to a unknown aspiring actress. The two marry, whereupon her fame…
