Films shown will include 1934s proto-screwball comedy It Happened One Night (that supposedly brought down the undershirt industry when Clark Gable appeared sans one) to the '80s caper A Fish Called Wanda, which actually caused a Danish man named Ole Bentzen to laugh so hard that he had a heart attack and died. Among the others shown will be His Girl Friday, Dr. Strangelove, MASH, Manhattan, and This Is Spinal Tap.
Director/comedian Wil Shriner introduces each day with a montage of great comedy moments in film. His twin brother, actor Kin Shriner, will focus on the screwball comedies of the 30s and 40s. Admission for all films is $15, individual films $3. Visit fliff.com for times, or call 954-760-9898.
