Transcript 7 : 15^8:45pm -5- 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA (Silent) 1916 Alan Holubar, Jane Gail, Matt Moore. One of the earliest versions of Jules Verne's novel, a combination of 'Leagues' and 'Mysterious Island.'This version is noted for being the first true underwater picture, made possible by the Williamson Tube, developed by the Williamson Brothers. At the time the film was made, World War I was in progress and interest was helped by the fact that submarine warfare was in full swing in the Atlantic, hence the added exploitability of the story of Capt. Nemo and his submarine Nautilus. 9:00-10:20pm NOSFERATU (Eine Symphonie Des Grauens—A Symphony of Terror) (Silent) 1922 Max Schreck. Alexander Granach, Gustav von Wangenheim. Directed by F.W. Murnau. The now-classic, first version of Bram Stoker's 'Dracula,' made in Germany during the silent era. Murnau used every photographic trick possible to keep the chills going, with the best chills provided by the title character played by Max Schreck (whose last name meant, appropriately 'scream of terror') in the wierdest makeup ever for a terror film.' 10 : 25-12 : 00am Asphyx—Color SATURDAY, MARCH 24, 1984 9:15-11:00am THE DAY THE EARTH CAUGHT FIRE Great Britain 1962 Directed by Val Guest With Edward Judd, Janet Munro, Leo McKern, Michael Goodliffe, Bernard Braden Earth faces destruction in one of the best science-fiction dramas made in some time. There are no alien's, no planetary invaders, no unstoppable monsters. In fact, the only monster is man himself. The United States and Russia have set off super-thermonuclear tests at opposite ends of the Earth... at the same time. The result of the dual blast is that the Earth hasshifted in itsorbit. Theresultsare catastrophic; Earth's climate has been thrown off kilter and the planet is gradually moving closer to the sun1 Tornadoes devestate Russia, ice caps menace New York... droughts, earthquakes and other catastrophes of nature are only the preliminary to the main event, the true horror that faces mankind. A reporter (enduring his own form of personal hell), an attractive government worker and a veteran newspaperman watch and try to survive as mankind reacts in many emotion, often irrational, sometimes horrifying ways to the increasing heat that strikes and the prospect of impending doom. The ending is thought-provoking (as is the entire premise of the picture) and will leave audiences on the edge of their seats... especially since it bases itself in scientificfact.. .fact that could become nightmare reality1 ll:15-l:00pm 20 Thousand Leagues Under the Sea—Silent l:15-3:00pm UGETSU (Japanese Dialogue with English Subtitles) Japan 1953 Directed by Kenji Mizoguchi With Machiko Kyo, Masayuki Mori, Kinuyo Tanaka, Mitsuko Mito, Sakas Ozawa A classic Japanese production that has remained a timeless piece of work. It retells the 16th century legend of two men, a potter and a farmer, who leave their families and journey to the city to find their respective dreams. The Potter, Genjuro, dreams of wealth, while Tobei, the farmer, desires to become a samuaai and attain military glory. Genjuro finds his dream in the arms of the beautiful Lady Wakasa and deserts his wife and child. Tobei, claiming the victory of another warrior as his own, attains his sought-for dream of military status. But both men find their dream-worlds ending. Genjuro soon finds that his lovely mistress is the ghost of a young lady who died before experiencing womanhood ... to leave her means to face death Tobei returns to his village to show off his glory.' Both men soon find that even their homes and families have been drastically, in one case tragically, changed. Winner of the Silver Lion Award at the Venice Film Festival, UGETSU caused Newseek to remark, "... the genius of the film rests on the superb photography which transforms the acting, the story and the background into a flow of insistently haunting images. These have a strange ambiguity ... it is difficult to remember where reality stops and hallucination begins." 3: 15-5 :00pm Judex 5:15-7 :00pm Burn, Witch, Burn 7: 15-8: 15pm Crazy Ray-Silent 8:20-8:45pm Conquest of the Pole—Silent 8:50pm-9:10pm INVADERS FROM MARS (Color) USA 1953 Production Designed & Directed by William Cameron Menzies With Helena Carter, Arthur Franz, Jimmy Hunt, Leif Erickson, Hillary Brooke, Morris Ankrum A bizarre, chilling, unusual science-fantasy that has become a cult favorite with an incredible following. William Cameron Menzies. one of the great visual masters in the history of motion pictures, has created a frightening atmosphere of subtle unreality as the story unfolds in a rapid-paced format that grips the viewer. David, a youngster interested in astronomy and science, wakes up one night to see a flying saucer vanish into the ground near his home. It isn't long before various people, including the boys parents, become victims of the monstrous invaders from Mars, turned into living robots under the control of the aliens. While the Martians proceed with their plan to destroy a giant rocket that is about to be launched, the military pits its strength against the unearthly cunning and powers of the INVADERS FROM MARS. Eerie, unusually designed chiller. INVADERS FROM MARS is a different thriller that entertains and fascinates, right down to the rapid-fire ending, thanks to the effective production designs of director William Cameron Menzies (responsible for the classic THINGS TO COME). 9 : 15-11 : 45pm Great Rupert
