THE AMERICAN FRIEND/ THE STORY OF A CHEAT (LA ROMAN DUN TRICHEUR)

Aero Theatre

1328 Montana Ave., Santa Monica, CA 90403

7:30pm

THE AMERICAN FRIEND, 1977, Janus Films, 125 min. Crime Drama. Dir. Wim Wenders. When mild-mannered frame maker Jonathan (Bruno Ganz) learns he is dying, his art-smuggling friend Ripley (Dennis Hopper) comes up with a diabolical idea: Jonathan should become a mob hit man in order to make money for his estate. Working from Patricia Highsmiths novel RIPLEYS GAME, Wim Wenders creates one of his finest films, a noir set in an urban milieu where morality seems to be crumbling away before the characters very eyes. With Nicholas Ray and Samuel Fuller. In German with English subtitles. THE STORY OF A CHEAT (LA ROMAN DUN TRICHEUR), 1936, Janus Films, 81 min. Comedy. Writer-director Sacha Guitry also stars in this witty and unusual comedy, playing a man who learns from an early age that honesty is not always the best policy. In a device reused in KIND HEARTS AND CORONETS, this scoundrel revisits his life with voiceover narration as he writes his memoirs, covering his career as a jewel thief, cardsharp and would-be assassin of Czar Nicholas II.
