Great Expectations - The David Lean version from 1946 is still the gold standard film of Dickens' great tale. Dickens is Dickens because of his supporting characters, and Francis L Sullivan as Jaggers, Marita Hunt as Miss Havisham, and Finlay Currie as Magwitch look like they could have been cast by Dickens himself. Highly recommended.
Hot Saturday – This is a “pre-code naughty bit”. Fun-loving girl (Nancy Carroll) plays two suitors (Cary Grant and Randolph Scott) off against one another. The naughtiness is whether or not she has pre-marital num-nums with Grant. (She doesn’t…and then she does). This one is only of mild interest. Jane Darwell, who later gained fame as Ma Joad in The Grapes of Wrath, plays Carroll’s mother.
