Bachelor Mother

“Bachelor Mother” was Ginger Rogers’ first film after parting ways with screen partner Fred Astaire, and she proves she was just fine on her own. Rogers plays department store worker Polly Parrish, who accidentally stumbles into motherhood after discovering an abandoned baby on the steps of an orphanage. The department store owner’s well-meaning but foolish playboy son, David Merlin (David Niven), takes an interest in Polly and the baby and all seems well until their increasingly romantic relationship raises suspicions about the child’s paternity. Rogers and Niven give their best comic performances alongside a scene-stealing infant in this funny, heartwarming, and tender romantic comedy.

The four friends face opposition from all corners as they decide to make Dave’s dreams come true in the university’s annual bicycle endurance race.

Gods and Monsters

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. This partially fictionalized account of Whale’s last days is based on Christopher Bram’s novel “Father of Frankenstein” and won an Academy Award® for Best Adapted Screenplay.

It’s the story of a veteran English journalist (Michael Caine), a young American (Brendan Fraser), and a beautiful Vietnamese woman (Thi Hai Yen Do) caught between them.

Set-Up, The

A favorite of Martin Scorsese and his inspiration for “Raging Bull” (1980), “The Set-Up” centers around Bill “Stoker” Thompson (Robert Ryan), an aging boxer who insists he is “one punch away” from a big break. He’s lost more matches than he’s won, but he is determined to have shot at the title even as his wife, Julie (Audrey Totter), doesn’t want to watch him take another beating. Unbeknownst to Stoker, his manager has sold him out to a local gangster to throw his next fight and neglects to tell him about the set-up, resulting in conflict both in and out of the ring. Winchester, Indiana native Robert Wise (“The Sound of Music,” “West Side Story”) directs this essential noir that unfolds in real time.

Brown) as things heat up and the mobsters close in. With the cast’s sizzling chemistry and a quick-witted script, “Some Like it Hot” is still as fresh and funny today as it was 60 years ago.
