At the BFI: Rediscovering Frank Capra
Frank Capra was arguably the most popular and revered of all American film directors of the Thirties and Forties. This autumn the BFI celebrates his achievements on the silver screen.
Don’t miss the golden haired goddess Jean Harlow in Platinum Blonde or Capra’s gripping tale of female desire and strength of spirit as Barbara Stanwyck stars in Forbidden, a deliriously dark melodrama.
Key to the season is the new print of It Happened One Night, one of the earliest Hollywood road movies. Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert play off against each other brilliantly in this story of hitchhiking and motel beds.
