Only Angels Have Wings

1939 • Cary Grant, Jean Arthur, Rita Hayworth Directed by real-life pilot Howard Hawks, this gem is often overshadowed by all the other great films released in 1939. But this is one heck of a movie. It’s the story of mail carriers in South America who must fly in bad conditions through a perilous mountain pass. Along with Cary Grant and Jean Arthur, this is the first major role for glamorous Rita Hayworth. The film is an epic drama with adventure, action, thrills, suspense, and love – and some great flying sequences.

The Gold Rush

1925 • Charlie Chaplin One of the best movies ever made. The first half hour itself is worth the price of admission, containing some of the funniest scenes you’ll ever see in a movie. The bottom line is that The Gold Rush is still funny after ninety years, and that's a feat few comedies in any year can ever accomplish. The film will be presented with a musical score composed by Chaplin himself.
