MovieDescription
The Store
Released: 1983
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Ace documentarian Frederick Wiseman (The titticut Follies, High School, Welfare) casts his dispassionate eye on Neiman-Marcus in Houston. Guaranteed not to please the Houston Chamber Of Commerce. (M.W.)
The Story of Adele H
Released: 1975
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Probably Francios Truffaut's greatest film - a quintessential portrayal of obsessive love, seen through the poignant, absurd, heartbreaking experiences of Adele Hugo, daughter of the great novelist, as she pursues an impossible dream of romance and freedom to the shores of the "New World." As Adele, Isabelle Adjani has a cold, gemlike intensity; the film itself is restrained, passionate, almost perfectly achieved.
The Story of Alexander Graham Bell
Released: 1939
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Don Ameche invents the telephone. (M.W.)
The Story of Louis Pasteur
Released: 1936
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Somewhat Pasteurized biography of the great French scientist and his battles against establishment prejudice and intransigence. It also began Paul Muni on what Bogart scornfully called his "beard collection." (M.W.)

In Jacques Rivetteâ??s 2003 film, a mysterious couple blackmail a wealthy businesswoman.

The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle
Released: 1939
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Last, and weakest of the '30s RKO Astaire and Rogers pictures; a slightly sappy bio of the famed World War I dance team.
The Story of Will Rogers
Released: 1952
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Will Rogers, Jr., impersonates his father in a good biopic - from the man (Mike Curtiz) who had earlier defied George M. Cohan in Yankee Doodle Dandy. (M.W.)
The Story on Page One
Released: 1959
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Bristling courtroom melodrama about an adulterous, murderous couple. One of only two films directed by playwright Clifford Odets, whom Jean Renoir applauded for his "bitter poetry; powerful, profound and despairing."(M.W.)
The Straight Story
Released: 1999
Rated: G
Now Playing? No

The Strange Case of Angelica
Released: 2010

A photographer's deceased subject comes to life in Manoel de Oliveira's film (LACIS Festival de Cine: New Portuguese Cinema).
The Strange Love of Martha Ivers
Released: 1946
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Perversely Freudian film noir about tortured family memories and the nature of Evil. (M.W.)
The Strange One
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Life in a Southern military Academy with a charming psychotic named Jocko de Paris...Based on "End as a Man", the first novel by Calder Willingham, whom Norman Mailer feels - and I concur "has written what may be the funniest dialogue of our time." (M.W.)
The Stranger
Released: 1946
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A fugitive Nazi, tracked by a remorseless fed, disguises himself as a small-town professor with a penchant for bell-towers and clocks. Time, however, has a more than symbolic grip on him...Orson Welles' weakest movie - he was hamstrung by his producers, and forced to prove he could direct (five years after Citizen Kane!) - but the result is still a fine, stylish "message" thriller, with two brilliant set pieces: the pursuit and murder in a sun-splashed forest, and the climatic duel in the shadowy clock tower.
The Strangers
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The horror plot is familiar, as masked human ghoulies torment baffled young lovers (Liv Tyler, Scott Speedman) in a home invasion. But the film creates a palpable sense of fear through the shrewd use of sound, imagery and performances, scaring up some truly visceral viewer responses. (M.B.)
The Strangers: The Story of a Mother and Daughter
Released: 1979
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A grand actors' battle royal between Bette Davis (an Emmy winner here) and Gena Rowlands as a mother and daughter separated for several decades then suddenly explosively reunited.
The Street of San Francisco
Released: 1972
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Pilot for the TV series - and, of its debased type, unusually good. (M.W.)
The Streets of Greenwood
Released: 1962
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Documentary about voter registration efforts during the Civil Rights movement of the early Sixties.
The Stunt Man
Released: 1980
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A criminal on the run hides out by taking the place of a movie company's stunt man, killed while the fugitive eluded the police on a bridge. One of the most exciting American movies in recent years; in some ways, it's a thin, obvious allegory - but B- movie vet Richard Rush seizes the material and keeps it churning with energy and bravura movie tricks. As the company's director, Peter O''Toole gives a great magnetic, hammy performance, comparable to Barrymore's in 20th Century.
The Sugarland Express
Released: 1974
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Steven Spielberg's feature directorial debut (at 25) a whippet-swift little tragicomedy, based on fact, about a Texas jailbreak that turns into a media circus. Everything that was good about Spielberg's later work (Jaws was a year away) is present here: the adolescent humor, the delight in technology, the speed, the brio. (Interestingly, he's never really developed emotionally beyond this film, either.)
The Suitor
Released: 1962
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A timid young bachelor attempts to woo the women of his dreams in this 1962 feature by French funnyman Pierre Etaix.
