John Barrymore's performance in this classic 1920 adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's novel, caused many critics at the time to acclaim him the greatest screen actor yet. With virtually no make up and minimal camera trickery, Barrymore relied on his considerable acting skills and his ability to contort his features (to the extent of dislocating his jaw) in order to make the transformation from the handsome, respectable Dr Jekyll, to the hideous, debased Mr Hyde. A veritable tour de force.

My One and Only follows actor George Hamilton's teenage years. It's an appealing comedy, a road movie set in the 1950s and starring Renée Zellweger as his mother, the irrepressible Anne Devereaux. She's a blond Southern belle, married to Dan, a bandleader (Kevin Bacon) who loves her, but is a compulsive womaniser. After finding him in bed with one woman too many, Anne leaves him and takes her two sons: George (Logan Lerman) and Robbie (Mark Rendall), half-brothers from her two marriages. In a sky-blue Cadillac convertible, they set off an odyssey to find Anne a new husband - the only way she can imagine to support them. Anne is 40-ish and attractive to men, but no longer this year's model. Their journeys take them to a series of her old beaus, in Boston, Pittsburgh and St. Louis; these hunting expeditions are seen through George's dubious eyes. One is an ex-military sadist, one a playboy, all not suitable candidates. She tries actually working, but being a waitress is beyond her, and then she apparently strikes pay dirt with a proposal from a man whose family owns a big house-paint business.
No Strings AttachedEmma (Natalie Portman) and Adam (Ashton Kutcher) are life-long friends who almost ruin everything by having sex one morning. In order to protect their friendship, they make a pact to keep their relationship strictly no strings attached . No strings means no jealousy, no expectations, no fighting, no flowers and no baby voices! It means they can do whatever they want, wherever they want, in whatever public place they want, as long as they don’t fall in love. The question becomes – who’s going to fall first? And can their friendship survive?Morning GloryEva Lovelace (Katherine Hepburn) is sparkling in her Oscar winning role of 1934 as a naive, innocent actress who arrives in New York with no friends, no money and no accommodation. But what she does have is a wealth of ambition and the unique ability of a small town girl wanting to make it in a big world. Arriving at the offices of Broadway’s biggest producers, Joseph Sheridan (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) and Louis Easton (Adolphe Menjou), Eva sits patiently whilst a troupe of theatre lovelies are cast for Broadway’s next big play. Unable to cope with the bitchy put-downs of leading-lady Rita Vernon (Mary Duncan), Eva pleads with the kindly British Shakespearian actor Robert Harley Hedges (C. Aubrey Smith) to take her under his wing and coach her. But Broadway is a world of broken dreams and success is sometimes but a fleeting moment of morning glory…
