Timely Movie Note

Paging through the latest issue of The New Yorker last night, I spotted a review for You Only Live Once (1937):

"This early version of the Bonnie and Clyde story, starring Sylvia Sidney and Henry Fonda (neither has ever been better), is perhaps the finest of Fritz Lang's American movies, and certainly one of the finest American melodramas of the thirties. In this version, the young outcasts are seen as innocent victims of the indifference and cruelty of society..."

I can't recall whether this is the same film Frank mentioned. At any rate, the viewpoint of this story certainly mirrors some of the group's comments. We've already missed the Jan. 12-14 showing at the MOMA (what a great road trip that would have been), but Netflix does offer it.

Thanks, Linda! Since we're too late for the New York showing, I'm working on setting up a showing at my house, probably early in February! I'll send email when it's planned.
