(1978) dir Richard Attenborough w/Anthony Hopkins, Ann-Margret, Burgess Meredith [107 min; 35mm]
Anthony Hopkins plays Corky, a struggling stage magician who just can’t seem to break big – until, that is, he picks up a new partner: a somewhat sinister ventriloquist’s dummy named Fats. Corky and Fats soon become wildly popular but it also becomes clear that Fats seems to have a will of his own and, indeed, exerts it over Corky. The evil puppet may seem like a tired trope but, in the hands of a young Hopkins, Corky and Fats never seem clichéd.
