February 9: SPEAK EASILY (NR/1932/82 minutes)
When shy, naïve college professor Timolean Post (Buster Keaton) mistakenly thinks he's inherited $750K, he quits academia and sets out with a two bit theatrical troupe headed for New York City. The best of Keaton's early sound features boasts one hysterically funny sequence with the marvelous (and strikingly beautiful) Thelma Todd plus a superb closing routine involving an out-of-control cyclorama.
February 16: THE HALF-NAKED TRUTH (NR/1932/77 minutes)
Fast talking, flimflamming barker Jimmy Bates (Lee Tracy) flees a struggling carnival with his hot tempered "hooch dancer" girlfriend (Lupe Velez), vowing to turn her into a major Broadway star. Effervescent Depression-era spirit-lifter offers riotously comic repartee delivered by wonderful players---Eugene Pallette, Shirley Chambers and especially Frank Morgan as a neurotic Ziegfeld-ish impresario.
February 23: RUGGLES OF RED GAP (NR/1935/92 minutes)
In Paris, stuffy English butler Marmaduke Ruggles (Charles Laughton) is won in a card game by a nouveau riche Americans (Charles Ruggles and Mary Boland) and soon finds himself in a remote western boomtown: Red Gap, Washington. Laughton is peerless in this delightful tale of a man achieving a meaningful independence when placed in new surroundings.
March 2: HIGH PRESSURE (NR/1932/74 minutes)
Notorious promoter Gar Evans (William Powell) builds a lucrative stock sale around a new discovery---artificial rubber---but the scheme almost falls apart when the inventor, initially missing, proves to be a bit demented. Sharp satire is a slam bang affair with an exuberant Powell and co-stars (Evelyn Brent, Frank McHugh, George Sidney and Guy Kibbee) deftly leading the charge.
