MovieDescription
The Prestige
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale turn in intense performances as rival magicians who obsessively battle one another in turn-of-the-century London. Director Christopher Nolan delights in the storyâ??s bizarre crosses and double-crosses, drenching the screen with passion. (M.S.)
The price and the Passion
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Based on C.S. Forester's "The Gun," another Stanley Kramer special - with Sinatra and Sophia Loren as fiery Spanish rebels and Cary Grant as a staid British officer, transporting a mammoth cannon through the battle lines. (Anyone who casts like that was bound to make a movie like It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World...)
The Pride of the Yankees
Released: 1942
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Lou Gehrig, Iron Man of the old Bronx Bombers' "Murderer's Row" (back when the Yankees were the Yankees, instead of the millionaire chattels of a raving nit), in pleasant bio shot through with odd touches and recollections of Herman Mankiewicz's year-previous script, Citizen Kane. Teammate Babe Ruth plays himself; Mankiewicz has written him here as a jovial oaf.
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
Released: 1969
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Based on Muriel Spark's portrait of a dotty, scottish schoolteacher who worships Giotto and Mussolini and is addicted to grand gestures and eccentric romanticism. The film itself is mundane - but perhaps that only serves to set off Maggie Smith's marvelously manic performance of the teacher all the better.
The Prince & Me

Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
A Dairyland variant on Roman Holiday starring Julia Stiles
The Prince and the Pauper

The Prince and The Showgirl
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Marilyn Monroe's oddest project: an adaptation of Terence Rattigan's The Sleeping Prince, directed by and co-starring Olivier. At times, a pleasant surprise.
The Prince Is Back

Steve Martin and Martin Short are on hand as a pair of Egyptian priests/vaudeville performers...
The Prince of Thieves
Released: 1948
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A cut-rate Robin Hood and Maid Marian cavort in a sort of Sherwood Forest subdivision. A far cry from Flynn or Fairbanks. (M.W.)
The Princess and the Frog
Released: 2009
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
Disney sets the Grimm fairy tale in 1920s New Orleans and gives it a nearly all African American cast. It's the company's best traditionally animated outing in years. (M.S.)
The Princess and The Pirate
Released: 1944
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Hope in his leering prime, with ? support from Brennan as a toothless, maniacally ? pirate. (M.W.)

Coincidence means all in The Princess and the Warrior

Rated:
Now Playing? No
Neil Simon in a rare serious vein: the emotional and financial crises of a suddenly unemployed Manhattanite. (M.W.)
The Prisoner Of Zenda
Released: 1937
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Puritanian romance, the actor who switches identities with a king, swordplay, intrigue and those two noble villains: perfidious Black Michael and dashing Rupert of Hentzau. Based on Anthony Hope's swashbuckler (one of those compulsively readable fictions that hooks you in spite of yourself), and done to a turn by producer David Selznick, who was never better than with material like this.
The Private Files of J. Edgar Hoover
Released: 1976
Rated:
Now Playing? No
J. Edgar Hoover and his "cherished companion" - in Arthur Schlesinger's words - Clyde Tolson in a sensationalized but absorbing bio of the G-man who succeeded in forging a private kingdom by playing up the Red Scare and playing down the Mafia - as well as accumulating the goods on practically everyone in Washington, D.C.
The Private Life of Don Juan
Released: 1934
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Alexander Korda's follow-up to his previous lubricous look at history, The Private Life of Henry VIII; also Doug Fairbanks, Sr.'s swan song.

The Private Life Of Henry VIII
Released: 1933
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A sly, Lytton Strachey-style glimpse at the boudoir and culinary excesses of Henry VIII, deliciously interpreted by Laughton as a lusty, overgrown infant, full of appetite and bluster, flinging wives an chicken legs alike over his shoulder with kingly abandon. This film, short by Hungarian expatriate Alexander Korda (also by Hungarian emigre from France and the U.S.), virtually inaugurated the "quality" tradition in British cinema. (M.W.)

Western fable about four gallant mercenaries sent to do a rich man's dirty work; retrieving his wife from a bandit revolutionary. What Andre Bazin calls a "sur-Western" - exciting, large-scale, loaded with "messages."
