Described-Movie Weekend (March 28-30): A Big, Bad, Scary "Grizzly," Plus A Women-In-Love Festival Print E-mail
Tune in every weekend to hear quality described movies by AudioVision Canada, a described video pioneer and VoicePrint's sister division.

This weekend's Friday Night Movie, at 10:30 p.m. Eastern:
  • Grizzly (Thriller 1976): In early autumn, a national park is teeming with campers eager to enjoy the great outdoors. Little do they suspect that a voracious monster is lurking in the woods. Having tasted human flesh, it stalks the forest to satisfy its ravening appetite for more. It's big, it's bad and it's scary.
Our AudioCinema Playhouse on Saturday, March 29, and repeated (in reverse order of below) on Sunday, March 30. Both days: 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. Eastern. This weekend's theme: Women In Love.
  • Anna Karenina (Drama, 1948): The beautiful wife of a Russian aristocrat falls in love with a military officer and risks everything to be with him. Vivien Leigh and Ralph Richardson star in this visually opulent and sentimental portrayal of the classic story by Leo Tolstoy.
  • Honeymoon In Bali (Comedy, 1939): The course of true love definitely does not run smooth when a highly motivated, all-work-and-no-play New York business woman (Madeleine Carroll) finds herself falling for an easy-going, fun-loving, South Sea-island plantation manager (Fred MacMurray). A deft romantic comedy.
  • The Last Time I Saw Paris (Drama, 1954): In Paris after WWII, a handsome reporter (Van Johnson) meets an attractive expatriate (Donna Reed) and then, to her  lasting chagrin, falls madly in love with her ravishing younger sister (Elizabeth Taylor). But will their passionate love endure? Taylor is glamorous in this enjoyable melodrama and Walter Pidgeon steals the show as her father. Reed gives an outstanding performance.
  • His Girl Friday (Drama, 1940): Cary Grant, the managing editor of a big-city newspaper, and Rosalind Russell, his star reporter, strike sparks in this machine-gun-paced romantic remake of The Front Page. By director Howard Hawks. 
NEXT WEEKEND’S MOVIES: On Friday, April 4:
  • Hurricane (Thriller, 1974): Larry Hagman, Jessica Walter, Marvin Milner, Michael Learned and Will Geer star in this compelling docudrama about the category-four hurricane that lashed into the Gulf coast of Mississippi in 1964, taking 39 lives and causing half a billion dollars' damage.
On Saturday, April 5, and Sunday, April 6: 1950s Comedy.
  • At War With The Army (1950): Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis share their first star billing in this song- and gag-filled farce. At the military base where Dean's a staff sergeant and Jerry's a mess cook, the two pals find themselves constantly in trouble with a loudmouth drill inspector, a conniving supply sergeant and a hen-pecked captain.
  • The Great Rupert (1950): Things look bleak for Jimmy Durante, an out-of-work vaudeville performer with a wife and daughter to support. Then a squirrel makes a nest in their attic and begins to shower them with money retrieved from the hiding place of the miser who lives next door. This light-hearted musical comedy will please the whole family.
  • The Million-Pound Note (1953): Life changes dramatically for a young American (Gregory Peck), stranded in turn-of-the-century London, when he's presented with a 1,000,000-pound bank note. A delightful comedy of manners, money and morals based on a story by Mark Twain.
  • Green Grow The Rushes (1951): When a storm strands a fishing boat that's loaded to the gunwales with smuggled cognac, the eccentric captain (Roger Livesey), a young smuggler (Richard Burton) and a reporter (Honor Blackman) enlist the all-too-willing local townsfolk in a hilarious scheme to imbibe the evidence before it can be seized.

When you get to a certain age you can't keep up with all the reading. So it's terrific to turn on and get all the things as they come. It's one way to keep your mind busy.
