Hangover Matinees: The Color of Space

View Past Events

 

 

RAISE A GLASS WITH CINEFAMILY SUNDAY AFTERNOONS! This month, our HANGOVER MATINEES dive deep into THE COLOR OF SPACE! From Jungian monsters of the mind and scientifically-infused psychedelia, to eerily verisimilitudinous depictions of unexplored planets, nonsensical pseudoscience, and eye-popping extraterrestrial set design, Technicolor Science Fiction provided a seemingly boundless landscape for filmmakers to explore everything from Cold War panic to an all-encompassing fear of alterity — with an irresistibly aloof sensibility, gift-wrapped in sumptuous 3-strip Technicolor glory!

“Nothing ever happens here,” moans a grumpy space technician. Suddenly, right on cue, an asteroid teeming with extraterrestrial green goo is on a collision course with Earth! What follows is a delectable smorgasbord of charmingly constructed space station miniatures, non-sequiturs delivered with the stiffest of lips, and special effects so cheap they wouldn’t even sell off of a clearance rack. In simpler terms: It’s B-movie heaven. Watch as crew members of Gamma 3 get picked off one-by-one, with each death more bizarrely gory than the next. Defying logic at every turn (why is sentient, chiseled jaw Commander Jack Rankin’s first battle instinct always to throw things at the aliens, including his laser gun?), The Green Slime is a delirious, self-serious, silly alien creature feature of the highest order. Come for the aliens with bloodshot, perma-stoned eyes; stay for the flubbed line readings and psych-rock theme song.

Dir. Kinji Fukasaku, 1968, 35mm (Courtesy of BFI), 90 min.

Byron Haskin’s 1953 War of the Worlds (adapted from the story by H.G. Wells) lives and breathes Technicolor, determined to play out like a “realistic” alien invasion. Ricocheting between news reel narration highlighting the effects of the attack worldwide, and the still-fresh memories of WW2 and the atomic bomb — via shockingly violent battle sequences — Worlds is the quintessential marriage of Technicolor and sci-fi. A grab bag loaded with square dancing, instantaneous cremation, delightfully innovative special effects, and a handful of oddly chilling, one-eyed (three-lensed), anemic, seemingly merciless invaders, it’s a shockingly eerie and unsettling oddity of ‘50s sci-fi, equal parts intelligent and goofy. With heaping spoonfuls of scientific explanation delivered by a hunky leading man, we promise this gem’s eye-popping color will melt your puny humanoid brain.

Dir. Byron Haskin, 1953, 35mm, 85 min.

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: Hangover Matinees - Bell, Book and Candle

Based on a play inspired by Rene Clair’s I Married A Witch, Bell, Book and Candle is the too-oft forgotten showcase of the chemistry between Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak (Vertigo was released the same year). An absolutely delightful romance of the highest order, with a healthy dose of creep seeping into the periphery, it’s a classic tale of a love spell gone wrong: Kim Novak plays a seductive art dealer who decides her neighbor’s fiancé just isn’t good enough for him, casts a spell to get what she wants, and accidentally falls in love.

Sumptuously lensed in a bewitching palette of blue, lavender, and red by none other than James Wong Howe (Indiscretion of an American Wife, Sweet Smell of Success) and capturing Greenwich Village streets at dawn and twilight, this sole Hangover Matinee entry in our ALL OF THEM WITCHES series presents a singular and uncannily practical representation of a cat’s point of view. With a lovably goofy performance from Jack Lemmon as a warlock, and Jean Louis’ inimitable costumes, Bell Book and Candle is the greatest Christmas witch film you didn’t even realize you were missing.

Dir. Richard Quine, 1958, DCP, 106 min.
