Film Screening “A New Leaf”

Playboy Henry Graham squanders his wealth and must seek out a new source to maintain his idle rich lifestyle. The easy alternative to work is to find a rich woman, marry her, and murder her. Klutzy, nerdy Henrietta Lowell is the ideal candidate. But in dealing with his klutzy, nerdy, trusting new wife, a botanist, and her ill-managed estate, Henry unwittingly begins to assume some sense of responsibility.

Film Screening “ELF,” Presented by Hamptons International Film Festival & East Hampton Library

The film stars Will Ferrell, James Caan, Ed Asner, and Zooey Deschanel. “ELF” screened at the Hamptons International’s 11th edition in 2003 as a Spotlight Film.

Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa’s elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.

Film Screening “Harry and Walter go to NY” 1976 James Caan, Elliot Gould, Dianne Keaton, Michael Caine

                                   Film Screening – Harry and Walter Go To NY

It’s 1892. Harry Dighby and Walter Hill are a Massachusetts based third rate vaudeville team and penny-ante con artists who pilfer money from audience members to supplement their meager income.  Adam Worth is a renowned New York socialite and ladies man who also robs banks, the latest being the Lowell Bank and Trust. Harry and Walter meet Adam when they are assigned cell-mates during their incarceration for their latest crimes at Concord Prison. Harry and Walter learn that Adam has a copy of the blueprints for the redesigned Lowell Bank and Trust, now reported to be the most impenetrable financial institution. Adam plans to rob the bank again to satisfy his ego in that he can do it, but also to get back at the bank’s president, Rufus T. Crisp, who was responsible for his capture. Much against Walter’s sensibilities, Harry senses an opportunity to get a copy of the plans in order for him and Walter to rob the bank first.
