The Brits Are Back: The Golden Age of Comedy Continues

Frank Cullen, founder of the American Vaudeville Museum Cinema Project, returns with another hand-picked collection of comedy classics. This time around, it's back to England's inimitable Ealing Studios for a pair of comic double-features. Thursday and Friday, 1963's Murder at the Gallop (starring Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple) is paired with 1949's Passport to Pimlico (Rutherford again, working off an Academy Award-nominated script from T.E.B. Clarke). On Saturday and Sunday, Alec Guinness leads a comic criminal caper in 1951's The Lavender Hill Mob, while Alastair Sim heads an all-star cast of money-hungry heirs in 1951's Laughter in Paradise. Ever the knowledgeable host, Cullen will be on hand to introduce the films. Be sure and log on to guildcinema.com for complete details.
