Turned out it was best to split the difference on Ivano, leading with a classically accepted noir and following with what is arguably the best shot of the Haas films. We continue the endless Mike Curtiz renaissance (keep an eye out for the sort-of biopic about him that is playing festivals this year--shot in Hungary in B&W and going to get a big push from the FNF boys at the Jewish Film Festival next month) with a day that gets the book signing thang out of the way ASAP.
For Shufftan, my vote is for THE BLOODY BROOD but I know Chi-Bob will want VOICE IN THE WIND...I don't think they're quite ready to show EYES WITHOUT A FACE, are they?
Was also strongly tempted to put THE 3RD VOICE in after MILDRED PIERCE on the Haller double bill...either way, it's a Lavine-ian transition and should be encouraged.
And I could be convinced to reverse the order on the final Sunday, but I think the old fogey folks will come out in the afternoon for the older films and the younger folks will be more likely to show up in the evening for the 60s films.
