HIFF and the East Hampton Library present GODS AND MONSTERS Directed by Bill Condon

Once a powerful Hollywood director best known for FRANKENSTEIN and THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, James Whale (Ian McKellen) is long since retired and in increasingly poor health. His stalwart housekeeper, Hanna (Lynn Redgrave), quietly disapproves of Whale’s faceless, nameless parade of young gay lovers, but when the director takes an interest in new gardener Clayton Boone (Brendan Fraser), a former Marine and Korean War veteran, it seems to be for something more than his usual casual conquest.

Our special guest will be Golden Globe nominee Carter Burwell, who scored the music for the film.

Bette Davis Double Feature — Fog Over Frisco & The Girl from 10th Ave

Fog Over Frisco: Arlene Bradford (Bette Davis) is a spoiled, bored, wealthy socialite who finances her extravagant lifestyle by exploiting her fiancé Spencer Carlton’s (Lyle Talbot) access to her stepfather’s brokerage firm and using her connection to steal security bonds for crime boss Jake Bello (Irving Pichel).

The Girl from 10th Avenue: Geoffrey Sherwood, rejected by Valentine French in favor of wealthier suitor John Marland, watches her wedding from outside the church. Inebriated, he becomes increasingly louder, drawing the attention of two policemen as well as Miriam Brady, a shopgirl on her lunch hour, who takes Geoff to a cafe to spare him from arrest. There they encounter Hugh Brown and Tony Hewlitt, two of his society friends, who offer Miriam $100 to keep an eye on Geoffrey and make sure he stays out of trouble.
