The Capture

Review A World War II paraplegic recovers with his doctor, fiancee and comrades. Directed by Fred Zinnemann.
Sudden Fear

Review Thrillmaster Andrew Stone re-teams Shadow of a Doubt's Joseph Cotten and Teresa Wright for this bank job drama about a man who goes all out for the big score, only to discover he's risked losing all.

Diligent, observant and bright assistant bank manager James Osborne (Cotten) knows all the ins and outs of his bank - including a few loopholes wary upper management has missed. Despairing of the suburban treadmill, Osborne seizes on U.S.-Brazil extradition (or lack thereof) to provide his "get out of jail free card." His daring plan - rob the bank during working hours on Friday and be safely in Brazil by the time the cash is found missing Monday morn. Unfortunately, Osborne's wife Laurie (Wright) does not applaud his daring as imagined. She leaves him and, in order to get her back, Osborne must now enact an even more daring plan - break back into the bank and return the purloined tender before Monday morning.

Stage Fright

Review Two generations of lovers struggle to determine whether practicality or passion should guide their fate in this "heartwarming and delightful" (The Hollywood Reporter) tale. Starring Academy AwardÂ(r) winners* David Niven and Teresa Wright and "filmed with tenderness and rhythmic beauty" (Cue), Enchantment casts a captivating spell! As a young man, Rollo (Niven) was kept from his true love, Lark (Wright), by the scheming of his spiteful older sister. Years later, he's pleased to see his niece and Lark's nephew falling in love. But war is raging and the future looks bleak. Can Rollo keep another couple from losing their chance at happiness? *Niven: Actor, Separate Tables (1958); Wright: Supporting Actress, Mrs. Miniver (1942)
Father Brown, Season 1

Review Joseph Cotton star as Uncle Charlie, a calculating and charming killer who hides out in his relatives' small hometown.

A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues as the psychopathic killer plots the death of his young niece to protect his secret.
Second Woman, The - 1950

Review Newly remastered and restored. It's spring in Rossmore, Illinois, and Professor Casanova Q. Brown returns to his hometown anxious to tie the knot with his sweetheart Madge Ferris. But Cass is in a "strange situation" and seems much more nervous than a first-time groom ought to be. Then, on the eve of their wedding, Cass receives a letter from a nearby maternity hospital he first suspects is an advertisement, but upon investigation, proves to be much more. Gary Cooper brings the comic sensibilities he displayed in such films as Mr. Deeds Goes to Town and Ball of Fire to Casanova Brown, a wacky romantic comedy that reunites him with his The Pride of the Yankees leading lady, Teresa Wright. It's old home week for Teresa as well; Patricia Collinge, who played her mother in Shadow of a Doubt, repeats that function here along with a splendid supporting cast that includes a scene-stealing Frank Morgan (as Coop s would-be father-in-law), Anita Louise, Edmund Breon, Mary Treen and Emory Parnell. Directed by Sam Wood (who made four films with star Cooper, including Yankees and For Whom the Bell Tolls), Casanova Brown boasts a hilarious script co-authored by Nunnally Johnson and by none other than character actor Thomas Mitchell! It's truly an old-fashioned kind of comedy irresistible fun that will make you laugh and cry.
