"The Pajama Game" (1957), directed by Stanley Donen and George Abbott. 101 minutes. No rating. The plot is frivolous and obvious, the acting hammy, and much of the dialogue outright dumb, but who cares? This musical, starring Doris Day and John Raitt, is buoyed by Richard Adler/Jerry Ross songs and Bob Fosse choreography. And it's good clean American fun.
"Cutter's Way" (1981), directed by Ivan Passer. 109 minutes. Rated R. The story of a crippled veteran, his best friend and their efforts to solve a murder. It's one of the best introspective character studies in years, a welcome island of reality in Hollywood's sea of fantasy.
