Doctor Zhivago (MGM, 1965)

David Lean’s epic tale of the Russian Revolution but also of loves won and lost during tumultuous times.  Omar Shari and Julie Christie star alongside Alec Guinness, Rod Steiger, and Geraldine Chaplin.   The film won the Oscar that year for Best Picture and is the 8th highest-grossing film of all time.  (Color, 197 minutes)






The Thing (Universal, 1982)

Director John Carpenter’s favorite film, a sentiment echoed by his admirers.  Kurt Russell is a member of a US research station in Antarctica (told you there was snow this month) that battles an alien life form.  This “Thing” is a remake of the 1951 film, also a classic of horror.  Supporting Russell in the cast are: Richard Masur, T.K. Carter, and Keith David.  (Color, 109 minutes; Rate R)
