Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -January 4, 2014

 



Aubrey Reuben




On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
January 4, 2014

12-12-13 Cast member Jefferson Mays of "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder"" takes afternoon tea at the "Downton Abbey" Tea & Biscuits Food Truck on 50th St between 5th & 6th Avenues, Wednesday afternoon 12-11-13
 
Off-Broadway, Cheri, conceived, choreographed and directed by Martha Clarke, is a dull performance piece, based on a novel by Colette, about an older woman (retired ballerina of ABT Alessandra Ferri) having a love affair with a younger man (principal dancer of ABT Herman Cornejo), which ends tragically. They move gracefully, as he lifts her and swings her around the stage, to a live piano accompaniment. Amy Irving wanders onto the stage to deliver brief comments about their love affair. Although only 65 minutes, it seems much longer.
 
The Pirates of Penzance was presented by the New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players at Symphony Space. It was a pure delight. The singing was excellent, as well as the hilarious staging. All the cast deserved their tumultuous applause, especially James Mills, Carter Lynch, Laurelyn Watson Chase and Ryan Allen.The orchestra played the bubbly score magnificently, under the baton of Albert Bergeret, the Artistic Director of this wonderful company, that all New York should treasure.

 
Film Society of Lincoln Center is presenting The Discreet Charm of George Cukor December 13-January 7. The Actress, USA, 1953, is a charming tale of a young girl, wanting to leave her small  town to become an actress on stage in New York at the turn of the twentieth century. It stars an adorable Jean Simmons, with Spencer Tracy and Teresa Wright as her working class parents. The acting is superb.

 
The Philadelphia Story, USA, 1940, is one of the finest of all the Cukor films, with a splendid cast, headed by Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant and an Oscar winning James Stewart. The socialite heroine (Hepburn) is about to marry for a second time, when her ex-husband (Grant) appears to complicate matters. It is a clever, intelligent story about marriage. More than seventy years later, it has relevance today and is thoroughly entertaining.

 
The Royal Family of Broadway, USA, 1930, is a comedy about a family of stage actors on Broadway. One (Oscar nominated Frederic March), however, has become a film star, with all types of amorous complications, and two of the younger actresses are contemplating leaving the stage for marriage. It is a very entertaining film, with a sly glimpse of actors and their life on Broadway.

Girls About Town
, USA, 1931, are two escorts, living in a luxurious apartment, wearing gorgeous clothes, being well paid to entertain w
ealthy out of town businessmen, and enjoying the good life. When one (Kay Francis) is attracted to a handsome businessman from Michigan (Joel McCrea), and they fall in love, problems arise. It is a funny, fast moving film, with snappy dialogue, and is thoroughly entertaining. It is one of the highlights of the  Cukor festival.

 
It Should Happen to You, USA, 1954, stars the incomparable Judy Holliday, as a young woman, who wants to become famous without any special talent. The film makes fun of the celebrity obsession in modern times. It is charming, delightful and highly amusing. It is, also, the first film starring Jack Lemmon, who gives a wonderful performance.

 
Heller in Pink Tights, USA, 1960, is about a theatre company performing in the Far West in the nineteenth century. Sophia Loren is the star of the show, and she looks wonderful.Anthony Quinn is the theatre manager and lead actor. The plot is too silly to describe, the dialog is atrocious, and the film is a disappointment after seeing so many terrific films by Cukor. 

 
MoMA is presenting an ongoing An Auteurist History of Film. Hud, by Martin Ritt, USA, 1963, is a powerful film, with four superb leading actors, two of whom (Patricia Nealand Melvyn Douglas) won Oscars for their roles. It takes place on a cattle ranch in Texas, where a cow dies of foot-and-mouth disease, putting the livelihood of the family in peril. Douglas is the patriarch of the family, with Paul Newman as an amoral son, and Brandon De Wilde as a grandson, the son of Newman's dead brother. Neal is the female influence in their home as a hired cook. The tension among the four actors leads to many confrontations. It's a memorable film. James Wong Howe also won an Oscar for the photography.

 
Film Forum is presenting Il Sorpasso, by Dino Risi, Italy, 1962, from January 8-16. Do not miss this terrific film. A wheeler dealer (Vittorio Gassman) persuades a young law student (Jean-Louis Trintignant) to join him in his convertible for a drink, on a hot summer day in Rome in August. A wild ride together lasts two days with a multitude of crazy incidents, and a penetrating look at life in Italy in that period of the dance craze "the twist" and other popular songs. It is considered a masterpiece of the Commedia   all'italiana film genre. It is funny, the dialogue is smart and intelligent, the acting, especially by the two leads, is wonderful, and after a two days' ride, the viewer feels he has a knowledge of the changing modern life in Italy during its economic boom. I recommend it highly. You will not be disappointed.
