The Glory of Nitrate. This evening of nitrate short films from the museum’s collection can happen in only one place: The Dryden Theatre. One of the few places in the world that can still project the volatile film stock, we celebrate this fact every spring at the Nitrate Picture Show film festival. In this program, we will highlight short films including animation, trailers, documentaries, comedies, silent films, and some of the most glorious color put to film.

Capra | Holidays. This charmingly morbid screwball comedy teams up director Capra and leading man Cary Grant for their only film together. The complex story involves two elderly sisters who commit “mercy” killings, Grant as their drama critic nephew, his new bride, and his two brothers—one who is convinced he’s Teddy Roosevelt and the other a serial killer on the run with a drunken plastic surgeon played by Peter Lorre.

Happy New Year | Holidays. Often considered the pinnacle of Billy Wilder’s career for its subversively sexual cleverness and outrageous slapstick, this delightful romp features the inexorable blond bombshell Marilyn Monroe as a love-seeking alcoholic singer.

Happy New Year | Holidays | Capra. Sparks fly when a headstrong runaway heiress (Claudette Colbert) and a cynical, down-on-his-luck reporter (Clark Gable) battle hunger and each other on a cross-country trek via bus, thumb, and auto. This sleeper hit of 1934 swept the top five Academy Awards, established Capra as a major director, and initiated the screwball comedy-romance cycle.
