Classics

Many classic films are just as powerful today as when they were first released. We add such films from many genres to our schedule throughout the season. Many are shown on the occasion of their rereleases, in fresh, new or restored prints.

“Masterpiece.… The supreme encounter between Surrealism and Hollywood. By contrast, the dream sequence designed by Dali in Hitchcock’s Spellbound is fairly drab and pedestrian.”—Jonathan Rosenbaum

“Watching this film is like entering a strange and wonderful dream.… I'm glad that the work we've done will allow new audiences to discover this unusual film.”—Martin Scorsese

Restored under the auspices of Martin Scorsese, Pandora and the Flying Dutchman stars Ava Gardner as the siren of a small Spanish town, the type of woman men kill and die for. She’s never fallen for anyone until the arrival of the mysterious James Mason, the actual Flying Dutchman condemned to sail the seas until he finds a woman who would die for him. Featuring stunning color cinematography by Jack Cardiff (Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes). (123 mins., 35mm)

Tim Lanza, curator of the Rohauer Collection, introduces this screening. The Rohauer Collection is a collection of rare vintage films (including many works by Buster Keaton) that was assembled by Raymond Rohauer from the 1960s to the 1980s and is now owned and managed by the Douris Corporation. Lanza, who is based in Columbus, has frequently collaborated with the Wexner Center to make films from the collection available to our audiences.

Restored by George Eastman House in cooperation with the Douris Corporation. Funding provided by the Film Foundation, the Rome Film Festival, and the Franco-American Cultural Fund, a partnership of the Directors Guild of America; Société des Auteurs, Compositeurs et Editeurs de Musique; the Motion Picture Association of America; and the Writers Guild of America, West.
