The Caine Mutiny Poster

The Caine Mutiny

During World War II, a dilapidated vessel, the Caine, gets a new ensign, Willis Keith (Robert Francis), and a new captain, Commander Queeg (Humphrey Bogart). The crew sees Queeg's unconventional behavior as irrational, and communications officer Thomas Keefer (Fred MacMurray) spreads suspicion about his suitability as captain. When a dire situation during a storm forces the executive officer (Van Johnson) to relieve Queeg of his duties, he and Ensign Keith are tried for mutiny.

Moulin Rouge Poster

Moulin Rouge

Visually exquisite biopic of Toulouse-Lautrec, the crippled painter whose work perfectly captured the spirit of bohemian Paris in the naughty 1890s. Portrayed as an embittered loner, he is tormented by his doomed relationships with prostitute Marie Charlet and sympathetic model Myriamme.

Cyrano de Bergerac Poster

Cyrano de Bergerac

Poet, romantic and sword fighter Cyrano de Bergerac (Jose Ferrer) loves the beautiful Roxane (Mala Powers), but although he is proud enough of his bulbous proboscis that he regularly duels those who dare mock it, he fears she could never love a man with such an enormous nose. When he learns that she loves the handsome guardsman Christian (William Prince), Cyrano provides the tongue-tied young man with the words of love and devotion he wishes he could say to Roxanne himself.
