Summary:

Alec Guinness gets to die eight times, playing a line of successors to a dukedom, in the Ealing dark comedy Kind Hearts and Coronets. Louis Mazzini (Dennis Price) is ninth in line to inherit the dukedom from the aristocratic D’Ascoyne family. Louis vows to kill all eight people who stand between him and the duke’s title. Aside from two cases of natural causes, Louis works through the list, eliminating rivals (all played by Guinness). Along the way he romances Sibella (Joan Greenwood), a childhood friend who ends up marrying a dullard, and Edith (Valerie Hobson), the beautiful widow of one of his victims with whom he plans to share his title. But just when Louis is ready to assume the D’Ascoyne mantle, a bizarre irony strikes.

Indeed_Movies_#89_Daisies

Welcome to episode #14 – #89 Daisies (1966) with Jitka Cerhová and Ivana Karbanová

Summary:

The opening sequence is that of a spinning flywheel with shots of airplanes strafing the ground. The shots of the airplanes are from US Navy footage shot in the Pacific Theatre during World War II. The first scene shows the two main characters sitting in bathing suits. Their conversation is robotic and from that point on they decide to be bad. The next scene shows Marie I and Marie II dancing in front of a tree. The tree has many fruits and resembles the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Once Marie I eats from the tree, they both fall and appear in their apartment. There is significant action here, with Marie I looking through the window at a parade and Marie II eating. The next few scenes are all similar. They show the two girls on a date with an older man, a “sugar daddy“. Marie II eats voraciously and Marie I eventually starts acting like her, eating a lot of food.

Keefe and Chris try to understand this Czechoslovakian film of two women….doing things….we are not really sure here.  We were lost…and likely drunk watching this film.  Or wish we were drunk.

Indeed_Movies_#90_A_New_Leaf

Welcome to episode #13 – #90 A New Leaf (1971) with Walter Matthau and Elaine May

Summary:

This dark and funny comedy about marriage, murder, and money. May  stars as Henrietta, a shy and clumsy wallflower, who is also heir to a large pile of money. Indigent playboy Graham (Walter Matthau), who has squandered his inherited trust fund and needs to get a new source of money, begins to ply his affections upon Henrietta. When his butler (George Rose) recommends that Graham should marry Henrietta and gain control of her funds, Graham borrows money from his miserable uncle (James Coco) and wines and dines Henrietta. Graham’s dastardly plan is to marry Henrietta, take her off on a trip to the mountains, and murder her. Graham can then return from her funeral and inherit his wealth. But thrown into his path toward the perfect murder are a collection of Henrietta’s loyal — and not so loyal — retainers and the small dim light of Graham’s own conscience.

Keefe, Chris and Paxton presents you this classic film for both Matthau and May as they present their story of Love and understanding….who are we kidding.   Matthau is a spoiled jerk….but we like him anyways.

Indeed_Movies_#91_Whats_Up_Doc

Welcome to episode #12 – #91 Whats Up Doc? (1972) with Barbra Streisand, RyanO’Neil and Madeline Kahn

Summary:

When wacky co-ed Judy Maxwell (Barbra Streisand, in the Katharine Hepburn part) spies nebbishy musicologist Howard Bannister (Ryan O’Neal in bespectacled Cary Grant mode) in a San Francisco hotel lobby, she decides that Howard and his precious igneous rocks are right up her alley. Too bad Howard already has a fiancée, the propriety-fixated Eunice (Madeline Kahn in her film debut). Using all her arcane knowledge from brief stays at numerous colleges, Judy tries to charm her way to a $20,000 grant for Howard, and Howard himself, at a banquet with grantor Frederick Larrabee (Austin Pendleton). Things get even more complicated the next day when Judy’s underwear-filled overnight bag gets mixed up with Howard’s rock bag, which gets mixed up with Mrs. Van Hoskins’ bag of jewels, which gets mixed up with Mr. Smith’s bag of top secret government papers. All sides converge at Larrabee’s mod townhouse and the chase begins.

KeefeChris and Paxton bring you this past pace cast of annoyance, greed and confusion.  As one action after another only sends this film rolling downhill, around the corner, under the ladder and into a bay.

Summary:

During a formal dinner party at the lavish mansion of Señor Edmundo Nóbile and his wife, Lucia, the servants unaccountably leave their posts until only the major-domois left. After dinner the guests adjourn to the music room, where one of the women, Blanca, plays a piano sonata. Later, when they might normally be expected to return home, the guests curiously remove their jackets, loosen their gowns, and settle down for the night on couches, chairs and the floor. By morning it is apparent that, for some inexplicable reason, they are unable to leave.

Keefe and Chris  and once again Paxton as they bring you this dark comedy from Central Europe about the pitfalls and hidden secrets of the rich and elite as they try to understand the environment they are now trapped in.
