Double Feature with THE AWFUL TRUTH (7:00)

(1934) dir Howard Hawks w/John Barrymore, Carole Lombard [91 min; DCP]
In Howard Hawks screwball classic, John Barrymore plays Oscar Jaffe, a conceited Broadway producer who has been abandoned by both his success and his fiery protégé Lily Garland (Lombard). When the two run into each other on a cross-country train, the Twentieth Century Express, it’s a race to see what’s faster: the spitfire dialogue or the streamlined locomotive.
