March 8, 2014“Elephant Walk” (1954), 103 minutes, Technicolor
Colonial tea planter John Wiley, visiting England at the end of World War II, wins and weds lovely English rose Ruth and takes her home to Elephant Walk, Ceylon, where the local elephants have a grudge against the plantation. Ruth's delight with the tropical wealth and luxury of her new home is tempered by isolation as the only white woman in the district, her husband's occasional imperious arrogance, a mutual physical attraction with plantation manager Dick Carver and by the hovering, ominous menace of the hostile elephants. “Elephant Walk” stars Elizabeth Taylor, Dana Andrews and Peter Finch.
April 12, 2014“Murder Most Foul!” (1964), 90 minutes, black and white
“Murder Most Foul!” is the third of four Miss Marple films made by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and is loosely based on the Agatha Christie novel "Mrs McGinty's Dead.” Miss Marple is the only jury member who believes that an accused is innocently charged with murder, so she joins a local acting troupe and tries to figure out who the real murderer is. “Murder Most Foul!” stars Margaret Rutherford and Bud Tingwell.
