World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: ORSON WELLES

An outsider to the studio system which dominated American filmmaking, Orson Welles never condescended to play by Hollywood's rules, and consequently his arduous forty-year career was pocked with moments of brilliance, excess and waste, as well as two decades of European exile.  Nevertheless, when asked if it was all worth it, Welles replied, "It is when it works."  Generations of filmmakers and audiences would agree.  Jean-Luc Godard once commented that Welles’ CITIZEN KANE inspired more careers in cinema than any other movie, and Welles himself remains a major influence.


This Saturday's Movies - 8/19/2017
4:00 PM
Welles directed this wild & woolly adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy at Poverty Row's Republic Pictures, to prove that "high-brow" subjects could be made cheaply & commercially.

(USA, 1948, B&W, 108 min, dir. Orson Welles, with Orsen Welles and Jeanette Nolan)

6:00 PM
Orson Welles' screen adaptation of the novel by Franz Kafka. Josef K. wakes up in the morning and finds the police in his room. They tell him that he is on trial but nobody tells him what he is accused of. In order to find out about the reason of this accusation and to protest his innocence, he tries to look behind the facade of the judicial system. But since this remains fruitless, there seems to be no chance for him to escape from this nightmare.

(USA, 1962, B&W, 118 mins, dir. Orsen Welles, with Anthony Perkins & Jeanne Moreau)

8:00 PM
Wilson of the War Crimes Commission is seeking Franz Kindler, mastermind of the Holocaust, who has effectively erased his identity. Wilson's search takes him to a small town in Connecticut.

(USA, 1946, B&W, 95 mins, dir. Orsen Welles, with Edward G. Robinson, and Loretta Young)

10:00 PM
Stark, perverse story of murder, kidnapping, and police corruption in Mexican border town.

(USA, 1958, B&W, 111 mins, dir. Orson Welles, with Charlton Heston, Janet Leigh, Marlene Dietrich, Zsa Zsa Gabor)
