LSUA HEADLINES

Movie series continues on campus

Released: 02/09/2006

The LSU Alexandria Movie Series presents the following films for Spring 2006. The films are offered free of charge at 7 p.m. in the Coughlin Hall auditorium.

Feb. 10: “My Favorite Brunette” (1947). Directed by Elliot Nugent. Comedian Bob Hope is joined in this film noir spoof by Dorothy Lamour, Peter Lorre and Lon Chaney Jr.

Feb. 17: “Cast a Dark Shadow” (1955). Directed by Lewis Gilbert. Leonard Maltin describes this as a “tense suspenser with (Dirk) Bogard in fine form …” The whole cast is superb, and Gilbert creates a disturbing yet compelling atmosphere.

Feb. 24: “The Kennel Murder Case” (1933). Directed by Michael Curtiz (“Casablanca”). William Powell is best known for his role as Nick Charles in the Thin Man series. In Kennel he plays Philo Vance, a detective who solves a very complicated murder case. Mary Astor (“The Maltese Falcon”) and Eugene Pallette (“My Man Godfrey”) shine, along with Powell, in a movie that might seem dated in terms of film technique, yet very modern in its look at characters and their relationships.
