That’s pretty nice of them, don’t you think?

The American Cinematheque presents THE RETURN OF MOVIES NOT AVAILABLE ON VIDEO at the Aero (May 13) and Egyptian (May 13 – 15) Theatres. More lost classics, rarities, and what-were-they-thinking? oddities have been rounded up, kicking off with Sam Fuller’s WHITE DOG, starring Kristy McNichol in the story of a canine that has been trained to attack black people. The program also includes a double-bill of two late 1930’s comedy gems by Jack Benny (BUCK BENNY RIDES AGAIN) and W.C. Fields (MAN ON THE FLYING TRAPEZE), and a pair of mid-1940’s noirs THE LODGER and HANGOVER SQUARE. Plus an encore screening of the runaway hit from last year’s “Musicals of the 70’s & 80’s Series,” the 1973 musical version (music by Burt Bacharach) of LOST HORIZON, a movie which must be seen to be believed (and even then you’re not sure what you’ve seen!). CISCO PIKE (1972) starring Kris Kristofferson and Gene Hackman and MODEL SHOP (1969) directed by Jacques Demy (UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG), both set in Los Angeles, will screen in newly restored prints. Screenings are at the Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre at the historic 1922 Egyptian (6712 Hollywood Boulevard between Highland and Las Palmas) in Hollywood and at the Max Palevsky Theatre at the Aero Theatre, located at 1328 Montana Avenue in Santa Monica.
