It's no accident when wealthy Charles (Henry Fonda) falls for Jean (Barbara Stanwyck). Jean is a con artist with her sights set on Charles' fortune.

The Lady In The Lake
Released: 1946
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Based on the Raymond Chandler thriller, and done with a fascinating gimmick: every scene is "subjective" - shot from Phillip Marlowe's point of view, with Marlowe (played by director-star Montenegro) off screen. The gimmick becomes strained but it's worth a look.
The Lady Takes A Flyer
Released: 1958
Rated:

Two pilots, male and female, go into connubial tailspins. (M.W.)
The Lady Vanishes

Littlefoot (Gabriel Damon), a young plant-eating dinosaur, is orphaned after his mother (Helen Shaver) perishes while protecting him from a vicious carnivore. With her last breath, she tells him how to get to the legendary Great Valley, where he will be reunited with others of his kind. With his friend Cera (Candace Hutson), Littlefoot sets out for the fabled land, meeting a variety of new friends along the way -- while also being tracked by the killer dinosaur that mortally wounded his mother. (TMS)
The Landlord
Released: 1970
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Hal Ashby's directorial debut: Jean Renoir said it was the best "first film" in years. The settings are the haut-monde in Manhattan; and a funky, largely black tenement house in Brooklyn which the discontented young scion of a wealthy family has purchased. The method is light, glancing, satiric; jokes become, with just the slightest knife-twists, serious and moving. Just a year later, Ashby perfected this approach in "Harold and Maude".
The Language You Cry In

The Last Sunset
Released: 1961
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Robert Aldrich repeats his Vera Cruz conflict of the magnetic, grinning baddie vs. the staid, repressed good guy - this time on a cattle drive (with incest as added seasoning). A Wagnerian Western with a Jacobean climax. (M.W.)
The Last Airbender
Released: 2010
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In M. Night Shyamalan's live-action film of the animated Nickelodeon series, a chosen few fight to free their Air, Water and Earth nations from their Fire overloards. There's a surprising lack of verve and narrative tension, and action sequences are just not constructed or paced very well. (M.B.)
The Last Airbender 3D
Released: 2010
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The Last Castle
Released: 2001
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Last Circus

The Last Days of Disco
Released: 1998
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A Studio 54-like Manhattan pleasure palace "in the very early '80s," as Carter was giving way to Reagan.
The Last Days Of Dolwyn
Released: 1949
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Indomitable Welsh dowager battles dam project which will doom her village. Based by Emlyn Williams on his own play; the plot intriguingly suggests Kazan's Wild River.
The Last Detail
Released: 1973
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Two Navy lifers accompany a young kleptomaniac to the Lexington brig; along the way; they decide to give him a taste of the "good life." An almost perfect movie, in my opinion, and maybe Jack Nicholson's best all-around performance (as Billy "Badass" Buddusky - the hapless kid's guide to carnal knowledge and liqourish delights). But it's difficult to figure how Robert Towne's salty, virtuosically profane dialogue can ever be brought to TV. (Whenever I've watched it, one of Nicholson's best lines always comes out: "If this kid gets any -----out of this, I'm gonna ----- in my ----ing flat hat.)

Rated: R

The Last Exorcism
Released: 2010
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In this hellishly fun faux-documentary, a reverend brings a camera crew to film a farmer’s possessed daughter. It's a creep-out of the first order, with an excellent cast and restrained effects work. (M.S.)
The Last Exorcism Part II
Released: 2013
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Found terrified and alone in rural Louisiana, Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell) is now safely in New Orleans. She can't remember the terrible events of the previous months, only that she is the only surviving member of her family. Nell wants to start a new life for herself, but just as she begins the difficult process, the evil force that once possessed her returns -- bringing with it unimaginably horrific plans that mean her last exorcism was just the beginning. (TMS)
The Last Frog

The Last Frontier
Released: 1955
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The wilderness vs. militarism; midrange Mann western with an unusual cast. (M.W.)
The Last House on the Left
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In this well-shot remake, parents of a rape victim get revenge on the perps, who unwittingly take refuge in their lake house. The suspense often works, but the moralizing doesn't. (M.S.)
The Last House on the Left (1972)
Released: 1972
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Last Hurrah
Released: 1958
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Edwin O'Connor's canny tale of the final campaign of a roguish Bostonian Irish-Catholic politico named Frank Skeffington - the favorite political novel of both Arthur Schlesinger Jr. and Jawaharial Nehru -- in a somewhat more sentimental and despairing transcription by yet another Irish-Catholic New Englander, John Ford. He treats the material broadly, using it as pretest for a massive reunion of Hollywood's '30s "Catholic Mafia." It's a stirring film (though O'Connor disliked it intensely); funny and poignant - an one of the only times, in his final yeas, that Ford portrayed modern America.
The Last King of Scotland
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Forest Whitaker captures Ugandan tyrant Idi Amin in the story of a Scottish lad (James McAvoy) who winds up as his personal physician. McAvoy has trouble arousing our sympathies, but Whitaker, like Amin before him, both fascinates and horrifies us. (K.W.)
