The Melbourne Cinémathèque & ACMI present
Remember the Night
Cinémathèque’s Opening Night is now taking place at The Capitol with ACMI Cinemas currently closed due to urgent building works. We apologise for any inconvenience and look forward to welcoming Cinematheque members back to the ACMI Cinemas soon.
Beautifully directed by Leisen from a brilliant screenplay by Preston Sturges – the last before starting his directorial career – this luminous film conveys the sentimental gleam of new-found love but goes well beyond the hide-bound conventions of romantic comedy. Leisen’s handling of the romance between prosecutor Fred MacMurray and the savvy shoplifter (Barbara Stanwyck) he falls for, caught stealing a diamond bracelet during the Christmas rush, is surprisingly complex and unexpectedly moving. A knowing follow up to the director and writer’s Easy Living, it also features Beulah Bondi, Elizabeth Patterson and Sterling Holloway.
