Cinematographer John Bailey, ASC will introduce the double feature.

ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN
1976, Warner Bros., 138 min, USA, Dir: Alan J. Pakula
Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman shine as Washington Post investigative reporters Woodward and Bernstein, the pair responsible for uncovering the shocking truth behind the Watergate break-in. A tense, real-life detective saga demonstrating what a courageous free press can accomplish, with a sterling supporting cast that includes Jason Robards, Martin Balsam, Jack Warden, Jane Alexander, Hal Holbrook and F. Murray Abraham.




KLUTE
1971, Warner Bros, 114 min, USA, Dir: Alan J. Pakula
John Klute (Donald Sutherland), a small-town detective visiting the Big Apple on a missing-persons case, finds a possible lead when he meets call girl Bree Daniel (Jane Fonda, who won the 1972 Best Actress Oscar for her performance). What begins as an antagonistic relationship between a square family man and a city-dwelling, emotionally closed-off woman slowly becomes a genuine love affair. Bree’s inability to feel warmth is challenged by Klute’s quiet dignity and desire to understand her, and their attachment is intensified by an unknown stalker dogging Bree’s trail. An expert melding of character study and suspense thriller, and the first of several collaborations between director Alan J. Pakula and cinematographer Gordon Willis.
