I quickly arrived at 3 of the 4 actors shown without assistance of the internet.
June 2 - I identified George Raft almost immediately.
June 10 - After staring at the photo for a bit, I identified Helena Bonham Carter. I'm a little unsure about this one.
June 30 - Although I waffled a little between Betty White & Gracie Allen, I ultimately settled on Allen.
The actor pictured on June 16 was recognizable. I was certain I had seen him in several noir films but I could not remember his name. Perusing this website, I found him. His name is Charles Lane. I can't quite place the film which I recall him best. It may be from multiple appearances on I Love Lucy. I recall him being in the waiting room on the episode where Lucy gave birth.
George Raft, Helena Bonham Carter, Gracie Allen & Charles Lane - what do they have in common? I don't know. The month is half over and I won't have much time to ponder the clues during the remainder of the month.
|Castro Theater Calendar - June 2014|
The Castro has already posted several of their July screenings. It looks to be a good month. I am targeting the following.
July 10 - The Servant and Accident; I am assuming these two films are the ones adapted from Harold Pinter's works and directed by Joseph Losey in the 1960s.
July 13 - The Ladykillers and The Lavender Hill Mob; a pair of English films from the 1950s starring Alec Guinness.
July 15, 16 and 22 - Gordon Willis Tribute; the well known cinematographer passed on May 18. His best known works were The Godfather series, All the President's Men and a number of Woody Allen films. I am particularly anxious to see Manhattan on July 15.
July 17 - Young and Beautiful and Swimming Pool; two films by French director François Ozon; I've long wanted to see Swimming Pool.
