Horse Feathers

Starring Groucho, Harpo, Chico & Zeppo Marx. (1932 - 67 mins - B&W)

(Not rated, but suitable for all ages.)

Ostensibly a parody of the college films that were popular at the time, Horse Feathers finds Groucho Marx to be the latest in a long line of Presidents at the failing Huxley College. To save his school, Groucho decides to reverse its sorry record on the gridiron. To do this, he recruits Harpo and Chico, whom he mistakes for football stars, with hilariously awful results. But in truth, the plot doesn't matter that much, since Horse Feathers is really an attack on everything conventional - including plot. The movie revels in anarchy, and elevates the non-sequitur to an art form. Considered by fans to be one of the best of the Marx Brothers' movies.

 

A classic Three Stooges short will be screened with Horse Feathers.

 

Saturday, October 8 at 7:10PM

Monty Python & the Holy Grail

Starring Graham Chapman, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, John Cleese. Directed by Terry Gilliam & Terry Jones. (1974 - 89 mins - Color) The British comedy troupe of Monty Python was among the most worthy of successors to the Marx Brothers' tradition of remorselessly and hilariously shattering the conventional. Monty Python & the Holy Grail sets up the familiar legend of King Arthur, complete with realistic armor and other period costumes and excellently selected exterior locations in Scotland - and riddles it with an unending barrage of non-sequiturs, slapstick, sight gags, anachronistic one-liners and undiluted madness. Monty Python & the Holy Grail will be screened at the Loew's in a restored print!

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

Starring Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden, Slim Pickens, Keenan Wynn, James Earl Jones. Directed & Co-written by Stanley Kubrick.

In 1964, at the height of the Cold War, Stanley Kubrick dared to make a movie about what could happen if the wrong person pushed the wrong button - and played the nightmare for laughs. A demented American general sends a B-52 loaded with atomic bombs to attack Russia - in retaliation for the fluoridation of water. The plane is piloted by an Air Force Major who is all too happy to be plunging into "Nuclear combat! Toe to toe with the Russkies!" Meanwhile, the US President, cloistered with his top advisors, including a super-hawk general and a mysterious civilian advisor with a German accent who is in the habit of saying "Mein Fuhrer" instead of "Mr. President," are trying to figure out how to get the Kremlin to over-look being bombed by a rogue American plane.

Dr. Strangelove will be screened at the Loew's in a restored print.
