Sunday Martinee Classics presents...King Creole
In showcasing the best of his dramatic talent and considered by fans and the King alike to be his finest film, Elvis Presley plays a New Orleans nightclub singer dragged into the criminal underworld. Unlike his other films and scripts that were confined to a lightweight standard format as dictated by his agent, Colonel Parker, King Creole broke the mold. Directed by Michael Curtiz, this 1958 film noir music classic has the breadth and depth of a standout, stand-alone achievement, packed with talent and a compelling beat-the-odds storyline as adapted from the novel A Stone For Danny Fisher by Harold Robbins. A before and after commentary is included.

Sunday Matinee Classics: All the King's Men
Based on Robert Penn Warren’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel of the same name, this 1949 Academy Award winning film tells of the political rise of an amoral outsider and the breakdown of moral order. Loosely based on the rise and fall of Governor Huey Long of Louisiana, 1928-1932, Broderick Crawford in an Academy Award winning performance plays Willie Stark, a fiery populist who becomes a ruthless politician, a demagogue relying on threats and insults who will sink to any level to win. A before and after commentary is included.

Vietnam Documentary Film Premiere
Hosted by Sac Chapter 500 of the Vietnam Veterans of America, this documentary film has been dubbed "...in a category by itself..." by Veteran (Dec 2017). The companion book was reviewed by Leatherneck this month: "What Waszkiewicz’s photographs do best is capture the humanity in every moment. From the Marines to the civilians, it’s the people and their expressions that stand out. In the section titled “The Stare,” we see the expressions of Waszkiewicz as he poses in the jungle, in fighting positions, in his barracks, and other places."
