Hey all, Yacov sent over 10 tickets for Sunday's 1 p.m. showing of Lawrence of Arabia at Regal Hollywood @ North I-85 (our usual theater). As things aren't settled yet, I think this might be the best way to distribute these for now. Since this isn't as efficient as email, please email me at wms5012@gmail.com if you're interested in a ticket starting at noon on Saturday. This hopefully gives people some time to see this. Hope to see some of y'all on Sunday! -Wayne

Hey all! Sorry I couldn't make it to Saturday's event (trying to get off work for next month's). But I hope to see some of y'all at Wednesday's free screening of To Be or Not to Be at Emory -- they started with Lubitsch. I know midweek might be tough, but I'll be looking out for folks best I can. It looks like this is happening weekly, which is awesome. Here's the full calendar: http://arts.emory.edu/news/news-items/2019/07/Emory%20Cinematheque%20explores%20the%20legacy%20of%20Billy%20Wilder.html

There are others I might think of first on a different day, probably Bette Davis or Barbara Stanwyck. Loy could have chemistry with anyone — and was always funny. I also like how she played dramatic scenes without going BIG like so many did during that time. But I’m mostly familiar with her roles starting with the Thin Man and after. Vincent Price was game to play and do anything. He always seemed to enjoy whatever he was doing, no matter how silly it might seem. I think my favorite performance of his is in The Abominable Dr. Phibes. It’s purposely ridiculous but has Art Deco sets and a fully committed Price playing a doctor seeking vengeance.
