Leaving theater now. I give this movie a 6.5/10.
DJ liked it much more than I did.
DJ says: I rate this movie a 9/10. It's second only to MADAME DE ... among Ophuls movies I've seen. The ending is a little weak, but up till that point the movie is very strong. The irreverent depiction of royal protocol is worth beholding. We don't get to see that kind of thing anymore! This is an aspect of history that is quickly becoming science fiction - nobody knows how to depict royalty anymore.
This was advertised as a "new 35 mm print," but it is awfully beat up. Also, the white subtitles on this black-and-white movie are often impossible to read when they are on a white background, such as a white gown, or a newspaper montage. Black-and-white movies should have yellow subtitles, Beaver be damned!

Holy Technicolor, Batman! This could be good (depending on the condition of the prints): http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/films/1583

Adventures of Robin Hood and Singin' in the Rain are always great on a real screen.  Robin Hood (won several Oscars, including best score) was the most expensive picture of all time when it was made.

I've seen Robin Hood projected once and I agree. It looks great.

I'm most interested in seeing the Westerns and the swashbucklers out of this current selection.

About five times for me !!!  Plus I have the soundtrack album, and two different soundtrack CDs.

Also saw Singin' in the Rain at theater in 2013 (I think), took my mom, who actually had Gene Kelly as a dance instructor when she was a little kid in Pittsburgh; had seen it on big screen before also, for film class.

None of the new films look interesting, but I'm tempted to do a marathon of the 3 classic yakuza films showing on July 3.

Two upcoming events at MoMA:

Quote
Hasse Ekman: The Other Swede in the Room
September 9–18, 2015

Gaumont Presents: Max Ophuls’s Sans lendemain
September 28, 2015 7pm
Ekman, apparently, would be better known if Bergman hadn't used all the oxygen in the room first. The rare Ophuls film is playing one time only.

At Film Forum, a programme featuring Vittorio De Sica (as both director and actor), begins Sept. 9th. First up is a week of showings of Gold of Naples, a portmanteau film that was originally composed of 6 episodes. The original US release only had 4--this is the first US theatrical showing of a 35mm uncut print with all the stories.

There is a new restoration of Bicycle Thieves scheduled to play, but it's a DCP. Might as well wait for the Blu-ray.

Another portmanteau film, The Witches, is playing Sept. 29th only. This includes one of the few Eastwood performances I've never seen.

Madame de . . . is scheduled and will screen in 35mm.

Nice!
If you end up going to any of these, you can send me a PM; I may be able to go, depending on the day/time.
Tomorrow is Labor Day so I guess that means you teachers will finally be re-joining the work force Wink

Special "unseen" Orson Welles material is coming to MoMA this Nov. I'm particularly interested in the rare Shakespeare material (incomplete Merchant of Venice and King Lear) on Nov. 19th, but I'll probably also go to the reconstruction of The Deep on Nov. 22.

Details, along with listings of other non-Welles films in the Save and Project series, here: http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/films/1623
