Film Society of Lincoln Center is presenting The Discreet Charm of George Cukor December 13-January 7. Edward, My Son, USA, 1949, is an absorbing tale of an amoral businessman, who rises to great wealth and influence, and whose wayward son can do no wrong in his father's eyes. Arson, adultery, alcoholism and suicide all play a role in this powerful film, which details the life of the son (who never appears on screen) from 1919 - 1941. Spencer Tracy and Deborah Kerr are the splendid leads in this wonderful film. 

Dinner at Eight, USA, 1933, is an all-star production, with many of the finest actors of the time in Hollywood. It is a delight to watch. Every actor is terrific. Lionel Barrymore is a shipping owner in financial difficulties. John Barrymore is a washed up actor. Wallace Berry is a crude wealthy businessman, whose wife Jean Harlow is his equal. Add Marie Dressler, as an aging, former famous actress, who delivers the immortal, final line of the film, and you have one of the most entertaining films produced in Hollywood during the 30s.

A Double Life, USA, 1947, is about an actor (Ronald Colman in an Oscar winning performance) playing Othello on stage, who, obsessed with the role, becomes a psychologically disturbed, jealous murderer off stage. It is a fascinating, well acted film, with a deep knowledge of the Broadway theatre experience. Theatre fans, in particular, will enjoy this film.

Gaslight, USA, 1944, is a melodrama, starring Ingrid Bergman (in an Oscar winning performance) as a wife, whose husband (Charles Boyer) is trying to convince her that she is going insane. The cast is superb, with Angela Lansbury in her first film as a frisky housemaid. The suspense keeps the audience on the edge of their seats.










































Let's Make Love
, USA, 1960, is about a famous billionaire (Yves Montand), who is informed that he will be satirized in an Off-Broadway revue. He attends a rehearsal and is attracted to the leading lady (Marilyn Monroe). Pretending to be an actor, he is hired to play himself in the show. The two stars are charming in this silly musical. This was Monroe's last musical performance.

A Star is Born, USA, 1954, is a marvelous film, which shows Judy Garland at her finest in acting, singing and dancing. It's a heartbreaking story of the rise of an unknown singer (Garland) in Hollywood and the fall of her husband (James Mason), who was once a major actor in film. It is a realistic portrait of Hollywood at that time. Garland was nominated for an Oscar, after a four year absence from the screen. It is one of the best musicals ever made with glorious production numbers, an intelligent story (by Moss Hart), featuring a brilliant cast. Who could ask for anything more?

MoMA is presenting Our Town: Baltimore December 12-24. I Used to Be Darker, by Matthew Porterfield, USA, 2012, is about a young runaway teenager from Northern Ireland, who gets into trouble and flees to her aunt in Baltimore. We see her watch the tension in the family between her aunt and uncle, who are separating, and their teenage daughter, who is unhappy with the situation. The problem with the well acted film is that we don't understand the point of it. Problems caused by divorce affect all concerned, but this is nothing new. There are scenes where the actors play a lot of loud Rock and Roll type music, which is annoying.

Liberty Heights, by Barry Levinson, USA, 1999, is the director's fourth film about his growing up in a Jewish section of Baltimore. It takes place in 1954, and we witness the antisemitism, and the racial intolerance between black and whites, and the political changes, that are about to take place. The director evokes the atmosphere perfectly, and the acting is first rate. It's a realistic film, which leaves a deep impression on the viewer.
