On Screen at the Old Pas Film Festival

Jul 13, 2010

The hits keep coming in the Old Pasadena Film Festival’s second week:

Thursday is cult classic Harold and Maude (1971), the story of a most unlikely May-December romance between 19-year-old, death-obsessed Harold (Bud Cort) and 79-year-old, vital, vibrant Maude (Ruth Gordon). The American Film Institute loves this movie, ranking it among the 100 a) Greatest Comedies; b) Most Inspiring Movies; and c) Greatest Love Stories. It was directed by Hal Ashby, who’s made some classics.

Friday at Distant Lands is Seven Years in Tibet (1997), in which Brad Pitt plays an Aryan who hangs out with the Dalai Lama during WWII. At One Colorado is How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), starring Lauren Bacall, Betty Grable and Marilyn Monroe as models whose schemes to marry bachelor millionaires don’t work out as planned.

Saturday at One Colorado is The Way We Were (1973), Sydney Pollack’s romantic drama about Barbara Streisand and Robert Redford trying to make a relationship work in spite of very different worldviews—another AFI favorite. In Mills Alley is Jurassic Park, which is about kittens and butterflies and is a great movie to bring toddlers to.
