Description
Unique in Alfred Hitchcock's oeuvre, the film noirish The Wrong Man (1956) was based on a nightmarish true story. Henry Fonda is compelling as a hard-up musician mistaken for a robber and Vera Miles is spot-on as his anguished wife, who cracks under the pressure of proving his innocence. Fonda re-created his Broadway smash Mister Roberts for the movie version, 1955's third-biggest box office hit and a Best Picture nominee at the Oscars. His stellar cohorts include James Cagney as the dictatorial ship's captain, William Powell as the level-headed doctor, and Jack Lemmon (who won a Supporting Actor Oscar) as the beleaguered Ensign Pulver. An exposé of backroom political maneuvering, intrigue, and scandal, Otto Preminger's Advise & Consent of 1962 "still grips like a vice thanks to the skill with which Preminger's stunning mise en scène absorbs documentary detail" (Time Out). Fonda is an officer who predicts the December 1944 German offensive in the 1965 epic, all-star war film Battle of the Bulge. Robert Ryan and Dana Andrews play skeptical Army bigwigs, and Robert Shaw is a German officer leading a huge counter-offensive in the Ardennes.

"[Battle of the Bulge shows a] pivotal moment late in the Second World War.... This fictional account based on real events makes for an impressive piece of cinema, notable for its incredible tank battles."—BBC Films
