FILM • “The Ghost Ship” (RKO, 1943) RKO horror producer Val Lewton teamed with director Mark Robson for this psychological thriller starring Richard Dix as a power-crazy captain of a merchant ship. A young merchant marine officer (Russell Wade) begins to suspect that the captain is mentally unbalanced and endangering the lives of the ship's crew. The crew, however, believes the vessel to be haunted
and cursed after several mysterious deaths occur. The film was released on Christmas Eve, 1943 and did well at the box office. However, d ue to legal complications that resulted from a plagiarism suit, “The Ghost Ship” was pulled from circulation soon after its release and not shown for nearly 50 years. 35mm film print produced by the Library of Congress Film Preservation Lab in 2018, 69 min.

FILM • “The Rules of the Game” (Janus, 1939) Often cited as one of the greatest films ever made, “The Rules of the Game” (“La règle du jeu”), by Jean Renoir, is a scathing critique of corrupt French society cloaked in a comedy of manners in which a weekend at a Marquis’ country château lays bare some ugly truths about a group of haut bourgeois acquaintances. The film has had a tumultuous history: it was subjected to cuts after the violent response of the premiere audience in 1939, and the original negative was destroyed during World War II; it wasn’t reconstructed until 1959. That version, which has stunned viewers for decades, is presented here. The satirical comedydrama film features an ensemble cast of Nora Gregor, Paulette Dubost, Mila Parély, Marcel Dalio, Julien Carette, Roland Toutain, Gaston Modot, Pierre Magnier and Jean Renoir himself. In French with English subtitles. 35mm film print courtesy of Janus Films, 110 min. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA. No reservations taken. CONCERT • The Rapidan
