Humoresque (35mm)

Duration: 2h 5m Director: Jean Negulesco

Although Paul Boray (John Garfield) is a talented violinist, he comes from a poor, working-class background and doesn’t have the connections needed to make it in the music world. Woman-about-town Helen Wright (Joan Crawford) does, though, and after seeing him perform, she takes him under his wing, opening doors he couldn’t access before. Their relationship soon turns into a romantic one, but the destructive behavior of Helen may be too much for Paul to bear.

Showing as a 35mm double feature with The Big Sleep (35mm) as part of our Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid series.
