Anthology Film Archives


May 10 – May 16

In May the peripatetic film series OVERDUE, programmed by critics Nick Pinkerton and Nicolas Rapold, comes to Anthology for a weekend devoted to rare gems from the neglected Delmer Daves, one of the finest Hollywood filmmakers of the 40s & 50s.

In olden times, back when people gave a hoot, video stores would set aside certain movies on an altar to refined, idiosyncratic expertise called ‘Employee Picks’. In that spirit, Pinkerton and Rapold present their very own secret history of cinema – genre gems, misunderstood art, music movies – leading with torches of knowledge into the catacombs of culture.

Special thanks to Caitlin Robertson & Joe Reid (20th Century Fox), Lynanne Schweighofer & Rob Stone (Library of Congress), and Marilee Womack (WB).
