Movies to Tape

March 27, 1994|Kevin Thomas

Day for Night (Bravo Thursday at 7 p.m.; Friday at midnight) is Francois Truffaut's delightful, compassionate 1973 insider's look at those involved in trying to make a foolish movie.

Dr. Ehrlich's Magic Bullet (Showtime Friday at 8 a.m.) is a tremendously intelligent and engaging 1940 film biography of the 19th-Century scientist--superbly played by Edward G. Robinson--who developed a cure for syphilis.

Hotel Terminus: The Life and Times of Klaus Barbie (KCET Saturday at 9 p.m.): To watch Marcel Ophuls' Oscar-winning 1988 documentary on the late, sadistic Gestapo chief Klaus Barbie, "The Butcher of Lyon," is like experiencing a great novel and a real-life detective story.
