Film Series

Check out a film series that will be taking place in February on Thursdays at 7:00 for FREE at the NCSU Campus Cinema at Witherspoon, sponsored by the Film Studies Program at NCSU. The series, “Hard Knocks and Tough Luck: Warner Bros. in the Golden Era” will feature four great Warner Bros. films...

Feb 3 (this Thursday): Gold Diggers of 1933, Dir. Mervyn Le Roy, introduced by yours truly. A funny, gritty, risque Depression era musical that still packs a punch 70+ years later!

Feb 10: They Made Me a Criminal, Dir. Busby Berkeley, starring the fabulous John Garfield and introduced by Laura Boyes, the North Carolina Museum of Art's film curator. Featuring boxing, farming, swimming, and lamming (come see for yourself)...who could ask for anything more?

Feb 17: They Drive By Night, Dir. Raoul Walsh, starring Humphrey Bogart, Ida Lupino, George Raft, and Ann Sheridan, introduced by the other Dr. Orgeron. You won't believe how tough they used to make ‘em...punchy, dangerous stuff from start to finish.

Feb 24: High Sierra, Dir. John Huston, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ida Lupino, introduced by Tom Wallis, one of my film studies colleagues. Bogart got second billing on this one but he steals the show in one of the great gangster last heist pictures.
