THE DARK MIRROR & CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY

SIODMAKTHE DARK MIRROR

(1946) Easy case for cop Thomas Mitchell: Olivia de Havilland was seen leaving the scene of a murder — wait a minute, she’s an identical twin? But shrink Lew Ayres is called in for analysis. Approx. 85 min. 35mm.
2:45, 6:15, 9:45

 

"Impressively unusual thriller... What really makes it work is Siodmak's firm grasp of mood and suspense; the opening scene, in which the camera prowls a darkened room until it finds a corpse, sets the tone perfectly for the sense of uncertainty and chaos that follows."
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London)

"De Havilland is icily persuasive as the bad sister, and Siodmak makes good use of mirrors and other typical noir devices to underscore the good-versus-evil theme."
– Chicago Reader

THE DARK MIRROR & CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY

CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY

(1944) New Orleans club singer Deanne Durbin, well-familied with domineering mother, falls for heel Gene Kelly, but then... Self-chosen first serious role for the studio's biggest star. From a Maugham story. Approx. 92 min. 35mm.
1:00, 4:25, 8:00

"One of Siodmak's most compellingly delirious pictures... A must for Durbin fans, Siodmak fans, and anyone looking for the unmapped places where the surreal and the popular cross paths."
– Glenn Kenny, MUBI

"A fascinating film, tainted with a brooding sense of malaise, and with fine performances from Kelly and Sondergaard which dovetail the suppressed hints of homosexuality and incest."
– Tom Milne, Time Out (London)
