Westwood, CA 90024 United States

The Hard Way (1943) New 35mm restoration! After years of accepting Bette Davis’ cast-off casting offers, under-utilized leading lady Ida Lupino has her chance to dazzle as the worldly, callous creature that would help define her legacy as an on-screen performer.

Made in 1974 by an overwhelmed 27 year old boy genius only recently transplanted from television, JAWS is in many ways the ultimate creature feature.  You’ve probably…
