DECEPTION

(1946, Warner Bros. 115 min.)

Scr. John Collier, Joseph Than, from the stage play by Louis Verneuil
Dir. Irving Rapper

Aspiring pianist Christine Radcliffe (Bette Davis) is reunited with her lover, cellist Karel Novak (Paul Henreid), who she feared had perished in a Nazi concentration camp. Unfortunately, she's now the mistress of internationally renowned composer Alexander Hollenius (Claude Rains). Christine tries to orchestrate a productive professional relationship between the three that will allow all their artistic ambitions to flourish. Hollenius, however, is as creative in manipulating human emotions as he is in conducting an orchestra.


3:50, 8:45
HUMORESQUE

(1946, Warner Bros. 125 min.)

Scr. Clifford Odets, Zachary Gold, based on a short story by Fannie Hurst
Dir. Jean Negulesco

Young Paul Boray fights his way out of the New York ghetto not with his fists, but with the hands, and heart, of a virtuoso violinist. His meteoric rise is funded by arts patron Helen Wright who despite being married, falls desperately in love with her protege. Humoresque is that rarest of Hollywood offerings -- a concoction of archly melodramatic artifice that is profoundly affecting, featuring a mesmerizing performance by John Garfield and perhaps the most deeply felt performance of Joan Crawford's legendary career.
