Bunny Watson (Katharine Hepburn
) heads up the research department at the Federal Broadcasting Company, a major TV network. And she does her job very well, thank you very much. Assigned by the network president to introduce computers into some of the department's functions, Richard Sumner (Spencer Tracy
) arrives at Bunny's well-run division to observe daily activities. Unfortunately, however, Sumner is ordered to keep his mission secret. As a result, the whole staff believes they are being replaced. To make matters worse, there appears to be more than a little electricity between Bunny and Sumner, which upsets Bunny's boyfriend Mike (Gig Young
). As the tension mounts in the office, so do the laughs in this classic romantic comedy.
In the Golden Age of Hollywood, Alice Faye was Twentieth Century Fox's Golden Girl. She combined her enduring charm with a sophisticated sensual sound that fans adored. We meet Molly Adair (Faye) in 1913, toiling as a stage actress in New York City, when she's discovered by an ambitious young director (Oscar Winner Don Ameche) who aspires to make it big in the fledgling motion picture business. As the years pass, and Molly's star continues to rise, we experience first-hand what gave silent films their magic and mystique - from slapstick comedies, to custard pies, Keystone Kops, bathing beauties, all the way to the iconic "talkie" The Jazz Singer, which signaled the end of the silent era and forever changed the way the world watches movies!
How to Steal a Million:
The finer things in life are free (and sometimes fake)! Based on George Bradshaw's short story "Venus Rising," How To Steal a Million stars Audrey Hepburn as Nicole Bonnet, the adoring daughter of an artist (Hugh Griffith) whose greatest talent is forging works by the masters. When her father lends a replica of Cellini's most noted statue to a Parisian museum claiming that it's the original, Nicole recruits handsome, high-stakes thief Simon Dermott (Peter O'Toole) to steal it back before it's discovered to be a fake. But Mr. Bonnet's artwork isn't all that's phony, as Dermott turns out to be a detective specializing in stolen art. Also starring Eli Wallach and Charles Boyer, this delightful film about falsehood provides real entertainment.
