April Fools


DESIGN FOR LIVING (1933)
Saturday, April 1 at 11:00am
Tuesday, April 4 at 7:30pm
Gary Cooper, Fredric March, and Miriam Hopkins play a trio of Americans in Paris who enter into a very adult “gentleman’s agree­ment” in this continental pre-Code comedy, freely adapted by Ben Hecht from a play by Noël Coward and directed by Ernst Lubitsch. A risqué relationship story and a witty take on creative pursuits, the film concerns a commercial artist (Hopkins) unable—or unwilling—to choose between the equally dashing painter (Cooper) and playwright (March) she meets on a train en route to the City of Light. DESIGN FOR LIVING is Lubitsch at his sexiest, an entertainment at once debonair and racy, featuring three stars at the height of their allure.


IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT (1934)
Saturday, April 8 at 11:00am
Tuesday, April 11 at 7:30pm
A newspaperman tracks a runaway heiress on a madcap cross-country tour.


MY MAN GODFREY (1936)
Saturday, April 15 at 11:00am
Tuesday, April 18 at 7:30pm
A zany heiress tries to help a tramp by making him the family butler.


HOLIDAY (1938)
Saturday, April 22 at 11:00am
Tuesday, April 25 at 7:30pm
A delightful comedy with all the sophistication that Cukor could muster, the famous Barry play is enhanced by the fine talents of Hepburn and Grant. She’s a rich socialite who wants to experience the newness of life high and low, he is the poor boy from the wrong side of the tracks.


THE LADY EVE (1941)
Saturday, April 29 at 11:00am
Tuesday, May 2 at 7:30pm
Returning from a year up the Amazon studying snakes, the rich but unsophisticated Charles Pike meets con-artist Jean Harrington on a ship. They fall in love, but a misunderstanding causes them to split on bad terms. To get back at him, Jean disguises herself as an English lady, and comes back to tease and torment him.
