Mayoral Movies

Jul 07

(Franklin J. Schaffner, USA, 1976, 35mm, 151 min)

Introduced by City Councilman Bruce Harell

Sunday, Jul 07 at 05:00PM

Some have questioned the reliability of Henri Charriere's best-selling memoir of his miserable life on (and eventual escape fro)m the French penal colony, Devil's Island. But in the context of the mayoral campaign, Papillon is a bold selection by sitting city council member Bruce Harell: the film offers a tale of suffering, endurance, and serial escape attempts, in which Steve McQueen is at his best in the title role, and Dustin Hoffman is amusingly rat-like as his best friend, Louis Dega.

Directed by Franklin J. Schaffner (Patton, Planet of the Apes) and accompanied by Jerry Goldsmith's Oscar-nominated score, the closing title sequence is one of the most dramatically powerful in the history of cinema.
