Remember the Night (1940)
Years before they made movie history in Double Indemnity, Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray costarred is this fabulous, if little-known, bit of Hollywood genius. Stanwyck, on trial for shoplifting, is released into the custody of assistant DA MacMurray so she won't have to spend the holidays behind bars. What follows is Preston Sturges's scripted magic: a road trip home, eccentric characters, terrific plot twists, and a perfect blending of laughs and pathos. Splendidly directed by Mitchell Leisen.
Mr. Soft Touch (1949)
Just for the holidays, we've unearthed this ultra-rare, shot-in-San Francisco comedy-drama. Glenn Ford stars as Joe Miracle, a WWII vet who's returned to the city seeking vengeance on the gangsters who stole his nightclub and murdered his partner. He hides from the heat in a homeless shelter run by angelic (but still sexy) Evelyn Keyes. This bizarre mix of tight-lipped noir and broad comedy features an array of actual San Francisco locations, presented in a freshly-struck 35-mm print!
