City Honors’ ambitious Cinema on the Hill film series ends its first season - The Buffalo News

We're just ONE DAY AWAY from our final screening, Some Like It Hot. This film, starring the illustrious Marilyn Monroe, is revered as the greatest comedy of all time. Did you know that originally, director Billy Wilder wanted Frank Sinatra to play the role of Jerry/Daphne? Also, check out this awesome article written about Cinema on the Hill in the Buffalo News Gusto Blog! The screening starts at 7pm. This is your last chance to check out Cinema on the Hill before our first season ends, so hope to see you there!

“All you need for a movie is a girl and a gun,” Jean-Luc Godard famously stated. To make a compelling film series, on the other hand, you need the kind of ambition displayed by City Honors seniors Anna Blatto and Christina Schultz. The duo developed a way to share their love of film, r... - The Buff…

Time flies when you're having fun! We've already reached our SEVENTH installment of Cinema on the Hill! Can you believe it? The film we're screening this Tuesday at 7pm is Breathless, a landmark film of the French New Wave genre (and the film from which our Facebook photo originates!). Robert Ebert noted that no movie up to Breathless, besides Citizen Kane, had been more influential. You're sure to enjoy this timeless classic with a great storyline and charming characters. See you there!!

We're only ONE DAY AWAY from The Maltese Falcon! Interested in learning more about the film? Check out this article on Humphrey Bogart and his contribution to the film.

Raft thought it beneath an actor of his magnitude to be offered recycled material (the book had already been filmed twice) and he had no patience for some greenhorn making his directorial debut. Raft was a bona fide star, but it was his connection to bona fide gangsters that gave him leverage with h...
