THE GREAT MCGINTY

75th Anniversary!

(1940) dir Preston Sturges w/Brian Donlevy, Muriel Angelus, Akim Tamiroff, Allyn Joslyn, William Demarest [82 min; 35mm]
Skid row bum turned crooked politician, Dan McGinty (Donlevy) finds himself at odds with his corrupt mobster boss (Tamiroff) when he does the unthinkable – tells the truth. Preston Sturges debut film as a director shows all of the promise one would expect from the future director of The Lady Eve, The Palm Beach Story, Sullivan’s Travels, and more.
