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…

Kips Bay Library Presents Throwback Thursday Theater: War and Peace
Paramount Pictures Rating PG, Runtime 208 minutes Release Year 1956; Director King Vidor Synopsis War and Peace is a commendable attempt to boil down Tolstoy's long, difficult novel into 208 minutes' screen time. In recreating the the social and personal upheavals attending Napoleon's 1812 invasion of Russia, $6 million was shelled out by coproducers Carlo Ponti, Dino de Laurentiis and Paramount Pictures. Some of the panoramic battle sequences are so expertly handled by second-unit direc…

Kips Bay Library Presents Throwback Thursday Theater: The Maltese Falcon
Warner Bros. Rating NR, Runtime 101 minutes, Release Year 1941; Director John Huston Synopsis After two previous film versions of Dashiell Hammett's detective classic The Maltese Falcon, Warner Bros. finally got it right in 1941--or, rather, John Huston, a long-established screenwriter making his directorial debut, got it right, simply by adhering as closely as possible to the original. Taking over from a recalcitrant George Raft, Humphrey Bogart achieved true stardom as Sam Spade, a hard-b…
