1953 ( UK ) ( Comedy )
STARRING:John Gregson, Keneth More, Kay Kendall, Dinah Sheridan
DIRECTOR: Henry Cornelius
A simply delightful romp, and easily one of the best-loved and most inventive British comedies of the post war era, which follows the exploits and misfortunes of two highly competitive friends, as they race against each other in the famous London to Brighton car rally. John Gregson stars as a stiff-shirted lawyer, who gets baited by his boisterous friend (Kenneth More) to wager a bet on who will win the race. For support, the two car enthusiasts enlist the aid of their wives, Dinah Sheridan and Kay Kendall, who provide the glamour and much of the comic sparkle. Gorgeous color photography makes the beauty of the town and country scenes really come to life and a wonderfully inventive harmonica soundtrack by Larry Adler, keeps the movie’s pace and everyone’s spirits in high gear!
Never on Sunday (PG) – 8.30pm
1950 ( Greece | USA ) ( Comedy, Drama, Romance )
STARRING: Melina Mercouri, Jules Dassin, Giorgos Foundas
DIRECTOR: Jules Dassin
A kind of contemporary “Pygmalion,” the movie, a culture-collision comedy, focuses on the tempestuous relationship between a “serious” and humourless American writer (Jules Dassin) and a joyous Greek prostitute with a heart of gold, who makes her own interpretation of Greek tragedies like “Oedipus.” The conservative American tries to educate the harlot, much to the dismay of family and friends. The bouzouki music of the instrumental title track was an international hit.
