Gambler, TheGambler, The (1974)
Dir. Karel Reisz
Feat. James Caan, Paul Sorvino, Lauren Hutton
A typically gritty 70s crime drama, adapted from a story by Dostoevsky, that boasts a fine performance by James Caan as a well-respected professor of literature who secretly harbors a serious addiction to gambling.
Story of Gilbert and Sullivan, TheStory of Gilbert and Sullivan, The (1953)
Dir. Sidney Gilliat
Feat. Robert Morley, Maurice Evans, Eileen Herlie
Spirited biopic of the careers of W.S. Gilbert, a barrister turned-comic-writer, and Arthur Sullivan, a classic composer (converted against his will) to light music, who together wrote fourteen operettas between 1871 and 1896, to great public acclaim, including H.M.S. Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance and…
Edge of the World, TheEdge of the World, The (1937)
Dir. Michael Powell
Feat. John Laurie, Belle Chrystall, Eric Berry
In what is considered his first major film, director Michael Powell depicts a majestic account of the depopulation of one of the isolated outer Hebridean islands of Scotland as the younger generation leave for the mainland opportunities and thereby jeopardize the traditional way of life.
Ghost and Mr. Chicken, TheGhost and Mr. Chicken, The (1966)
Dir. Alan Rafkin
Feat. Don Knotts, Joan Staley, Liam Redmond
A pretty darned funny Don Knotts vehicle that has the rubber-faced comedian as a timid typesetter who hasn't a chance of becoming a reporter until he decides to solve a murder mystery and ends up spending a fright-filled night in a haunted house.
Damn YankeesDamn Yankees (1958)
Dir. George Abbott, Stanley Donen
Feat. Tab Hunter, Gwen Verdon, Ray Walston
Supremely entertaining musical rom-com that transposes the Faustian legend to the world of American baseball, with Gwen Verdon in the iconic role of the devil's seductress "Lola", reprising her popular stage role from the Broadway show. Ray Walston (TV's MY FAVOURITE MARTIAN) plays the devil and Tab…
California SplitCalifornia Split (1974)
Dir. Robert Altman
Feat. George Segal, Elliott Gould, Gwen Welles
A terrific gambling lark-come-cautionary tale from director Robert Altman, starring George Segal as a casual gambler who befriends a professional one (Elliot Gould) only to begin mirroring his life and sending both of them deeper into sleaze, debt and desperation.
While the City SleepsWhile the City Sleeps (1956)
Dir. Fritz Lang
Feat. Dana Andrews, Rhonda Fleming, George Sanders
Considered a vastly under-rated Fritz Lang noir, this newspaper drama provides plenty of social commentary depicting the story of the "Lipstick Killer" while the new owner of a media company seeks to exploit the crime in order to promote the most resourceful of his senior executives.
