Nick Ray in Theaters This Summer

Nicholas Ray the director of "Rebel Without a Cause" has taken over the city this summer. This might seem a tad bit late, because this is the start of the second week of films from the Nick Ray archives at the Film Forum. But seem like everywhere you look his movies are there. The Anthology Film Archives is playing his movies as part of there one-eyed auteur's retrospective. Where they think that having troubled eye sight was if Vogue in Hollywood's heyday. Hell I found a book about the Director last month on the street in the LES. (see Street Books) This weekend you can go see James Dean mutter the famous line "Your Tearin' me Apart!" at the Film Forum. The one to shoot for is the "The Lusty Man," "True Story of Jesse James, double feature on Wednesday the 5Th. If you miss it you can see "Jesse James" and "Flying Leathernecks" on the 16Th and 17Th. Yes if you are into old movies this was the summer. Let's hope next year has more old director's, more strange film retrospectives, and mare out door classics.
