Tuesday 6 November Film Show
PHCL Film Show presents

Is Donald Trump . . .?

 
The Manchurian Candidate
Starring Frank Sinatra, Laurence Harvey, Janet Leigh
Directed by John Frankenheimer

USA 1962   121 minutes

With a tub-thumping Right-Wing presidential candidate, a frighteningly ambitious politician’s wife and suggestions of electoral manipulation by sinister outside forces, John Frankenheimer’s classic American thriller has lost none of its potency since it was released at the time of the Cuban missile crisis.  

The film, which was withheld from distribution by star Frank Sinatra for almost a quarter century after President Kennedy's assassination, combines chilling suspense, perverse humour and vicious political satire. It centres upon Bennet Marco (Sinatra), who is haunted by nightmares about his platoon having been captured and brainwashed in Korea. His indecipherable dreams centre upon Sergeant Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey), a decorated war hero who appears to kill two of his unit in front of Russian and Korean officials.  Is Shaw less heroic and more insidious than he seems?  Is his power-mad mother part of a terrifying political conspiracy? So many questions,  so precious little time for Marco to answer them in this compelling morass of Cold War paranoia.

Tuesday 4 December Film Show
PHCL Film Show presents
Garbo laughs!

Ninotchka
Starring Greta Garbo, Melvyn Douglas
Directed by Ernst Lubitsch
USA 1939   110 minutes

Nine years after her first talkie, Garbo made her comedy debut in this frothy tale of a dour Russian envoy sublimating her womanhood for Soviet brotherhood until she falls for a suave Parisian man-about-town (Melvyn Douglas). The film is an unmitigated delight.

Not only do you have Garbo sending herself up ("Do you want to be alone?" "No!"), but also a company of talented comedic actors and one of the wittiest scripts ever written.   Billy Wilder was partly responsible for that and it bristles with his edgy barbs.   “How are things in Moscow?” Garbo’s po-faced commissar is asked when she arrives in Paris. “Very good, she replies.  “The last mass trials were a great success.   There are going to be fewer but better Russians.” "At least twice a day the most dignified human being is ridiculous", the director explained about his acclaimed Lubitsch Touch. That’s how the audience sees Garbo’s lovestruck Ninotchka: serenely dignified yet endearingly ridiculous. Garbo laughs. So will you.
