ON THE WATERFRONT
(NR/1954/108 min.)
Guilt-stricken after he lures a fellow longshoreman to his death, an uneducated former boxer (Marlon Brando) falls in love with the dead man’s sister (Eva Marie Saint) and defiantly decides to aid forces exposing the waterfront’s corrupt labor union.  Budd Schulberg’s brilliant script, Elia Kazan’s powerful direction and an electrifying cast (including Karl Malden, Lee J. Cobb and Rod Steiger) produce a classic tale of redemption.  Winner of 8 Academy Awards.

A FACE IN THE CROWD
(NR/1957/125 min.)
An ignorant, guitar-playing hobo (Andy Griffith), discovered by a radio reporter (Patricia Neal) in an Arkansas jail, is skillfully promoted into being a successful–and unscrupulous–TV star.  Director Elia Kazan and writer Budd Schulberg teamed again to bring forth a devastating study about a fascinating, power-hungry personality and provocative media manipulation.  Walter Matthau, Anthony Franciosa and Lee Remick co-star.

The Last Command (1928)
Emil Jannings snagged the first-ever Best Actor Academy Award for his towering portrayal of a Czarist general and patriot forced to contend with the Russian 
Revolution in this sweeping late silent drama directed by Josef von Sternberg. One of early Hollywood’s most creative and challenging looks at World War I.

Nosferatu (1922)
Celebrate Halloween by experiencing the original silent film adaptation of Bram Stoker’s famous ‘Dracula’ story. Still scary after all these years—in fact, some critics 
believe this version is not only the best ever done, but has actually become creepier with the passage of time.See for yourself, if you dare.
