Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 341: Wed Dec 7

Remember the Night (Leisen, 1940): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 6.15pm

This film, which is introduced by critic Geoff Andrew, is part of the Big Screen Classics season. You can find the full details of the season here.

Chicago Reader review:
District attorney Fred MacMurray falls in love with Barbara Stanwyck—a problem, since he's prosecuting her for shoplifting. The loose, graceful script is by Preston Sturges (one of his last before he turned to directing), and it partakes of a softness and nostalgia that seldom surfaced in his own films. Mitchell Leisen, the director, serves the material very well with his slightly distanced, glowing style.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
