      Birdman of Alcatraz

      Burt Lancaster deservedly scooped an Oscar nomination for his sensitive performance in the lead of this acclaimed and intelligent drama. It's based on the true story of imprisoned murderer Robert Stroud, who was made to spend his entire sentence in solitary confinement. Plunged into despair, he finds a new purpose of life when he finds a baby sparrow in the exercise yard and nurses the helpless creature in his cell. Over the next 60 years, he becomes an expert in birds, finding fame as a respected ornithologist and coming into conflict with the prison authorities. Co-stars Karl Malden and Thelma Ritter also received nods from the Academy for the film, which was directed by John Frankenheimer

      The Children's Hour

      Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine star in this candid drama about the serious repercussions of a spoilt schoolgirl's malicious gossip about her female teachers' sexuality. This daring remake remained loyal to the themes of the once controversial play of the same name, following a previous toned-down adaptation, and admirably deals with lesbianism, a topic still deemed risque in the 1960s. With James Garner, Miriam Hopkins and Fay Bainter

    • 1:25pm
      Two Weeks

      A dying matriarch requests that her four adult children return home to visit her before the end.

      Love Field

      Michelle Pfeiffer is on Oscar-nominated form in this often-overlooked offering from Jonathan Kaplan.

    • 7:35pm
      The Misfits

      Marilyn Monroe plays a divorcee who forms a relationship with a group of latter-day cowboys struggling to eke out a living roping wild horses in the Nevada desert. John Huston's brooding Western flopped on release, but rapidly gained cult status as the final completed film of both Monroe and leading man Clark Gable. With Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach and Thelma Ritter. Written by Death of a Salesman playwright and Monroe's former husband Arthur Miller

    • 10:00pm
      Jean de Florette

      Farmer Cesar accidentally kills one of his neighbours and becomes determined to get his hands on the dead man's land for the valuable natural spring it contains. However, a city dweller and his daughter inherit the property, so the covetous Cesar and his nephew concoct a cruel scheme to ruin the newcomer. Director Claude Berri's superb drama deservedly won international acclaim, thanks to the beautiful photography and affecting performances from a cast including Yves Montand, Gérard Depardieu and Daniel Auteuil. Based on the novel by Marcel Pagnol, this triumph of cinema was followed by a sequel, Manon des Sources, which can be seen tomorrow
