Alfredo Gasper (Carlos Cores) isn't making any money in the newspaper trade. When he starts a get-rich-quick scheme, he meets a desperate Hungarian refugee, Paar Liudas (Vassili Lambrinos), who hopes to bring his family to Buenos Aires. At first, the pair are fast friends who work perfectly together - but once the money starts flowing, Alfredo's barely checked paranoia rises to the surface. This moody and gorgeous noir evokes Edgar Allen Poe's best work, won the Argentine Film Critics Association award for Best Picture and Director in 1957, and was ranked the 49th best photographed film of all-time in American Cinematographer magazine.

Based on the novel by Truman Capote, Blake Edwards' Breakfast at Tiffany's is not only a gorgeous romance, but a film whose visual design changed movies and fashion forever. Audrey Hepburn was never better as Holly Golightly, and her high chignon hairdo, cigarette holder, and little black dress are now iconic, copied by models, drag queens, and actresses of every age. Virtually plotless, Golightly's goal to marry a rich man, while falling for George Peppard's definitely-not-rich Paul, makes for the perfect rom-com.

35MM PRESENTATION

Lucio (Nestor Zavarce) is a prankster and class clown, a happy-go-lucky teenager whose police officer father has almost completely written off. When one of his classmates, a young girl, tells Lucio about a mysterious stranger, he agrees to keep it a secret... until she vanishes. Soon, more young girls are missing, and no one will believe Lucio, who must take matters into his own hands. Based on a novella by Cornell Woolrich, and framed like a fairy tale, If I Die Before I Wake is a disturbing nightmare of a noir, whose climax was so intense it was kept from American screens until recently.

Alicia Huberman (Ingrid Bergman) is in trouble. Her father has just been convicted and sent to prison for being a Nazi spy, and now she's being pursued by a government agent, T. R.

Problem is, Devlin has also fallen for the patriotic Alicia, while having to push her deeper and deeper into a deadly game of espionage.

Alfred Hitchcock's first film in America is a rapturous gothic masterpiece, owing nearly as much to the Master of Suspense's vision as to producer David O. Selznick. An unnamed woman (Joan Fontaine) and the dashing Maxim de Winter (Laurence Olivier) meet on the French Riviera and married. He brings her to his seaside castle, Manderley, which is overseen by the steely Mrs. Danvers, whose obsession with the first Mrs. de Winter--Rebecca--is driving the new wife to the brink of insanity. Nominated for nine Academy Awards, it won two, including Best Picture, the only Hitchcock film to do so.

Cary Grant's John "The Cat" Robie is a retired burglar enjoying his retirement on the French Riviera. Problem is, there's a new Cat in town, plundering jewels from the ritziest hotels with utter abandon.
