This hilarious movie, directed by John Huston, written by Truman Capote, and with a heterogeneous all-star cast including Humphrey Bogart, Gina Lollobrigida, Robert Morley, Jennifer Jones, Peter Lorre, and many others, will be showing at New York's Film Forum, February 17-23.
It turns out that the released version, which came out in 1954, was radically re-edited from the movie Huston actually made. Apparently it was a flop in previews. So even if you're a long-time fan of "Beat the Devil," as I am, you'll be seeing something new.
Full disclosure: tickets are $8 for members, $14 for non-members.
209 West Houston St. (west of 6th Ave.)
