Young Mr. Lincoln showing at Library of Congress Packard Campus Theatre

Henry Fonda portrays the future 16th President of the United States in a brief period of his life, as he rises from a country boy born in a log cabin to a lawyer in Springfield, Ill., defending two young men unjustly accused of murder. Directed by John Ford and produced by Darryl F. Zanuck, the fictionalized biography received an Academy Award nomination for Lamar Trotti for "Best Original Screenplay." Though Lincoln is portrayed in this film as a bit of a rogue, Ford stated that he wanted the picture “to give the feeling that even as a young man you could sense that there was going to be something great.” The film was added to the National Film Registry in 2003.

The Big Lebowski showing at Library of Congress Packard Campus Theatre

From the unconventional visionaries Joel & Ethan Coen (the filmmakers behind "Fargo" and "O Brother, Where Art Thou?") came this 1998 tale of kidnapping, mistaken identity and bowling. As they would again in the 2008 "Burn After Reading," the Coens explore themes of alienation, inequality and class structure via a group of hard-luck, off-beat characters suddenly drawn into each other’s orbits. Jeff Bridges, in a career-defining role, stars as "The Dude," an LA-based slacker who shares a last name with a rich man whose arm-candy wife is indebted to shady figures. Joining Bridges are John Goodman, Tara Reid, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Steve Buscemi and, in a now-legendary cameo, John Turturro. Stuffed with vignettes—each staged through the Coens’ trademark absurdist, innovative visual style—that are alternately funny and disturbing, "Lebowski" was only middling successful at the box office during its initial release. However, television, the Internet, home video and considerable word-of-mouth have made the film a highly quoted cult classic.

Rio Bravo showing at Library of Congress Packard Campus Theatre

RIO BRAVO (Warner Bros., 1959)
As legend goes, this Western, directed by Howard Hawks, was produced in part as a riposte to Fred Zinnemann’s "High Noon." The film trades in the wide-open spaces for the confines of a small jail where a sheriff and his deputies are waiting for the transfer of a prisoner and the anticipated attempt by his equally unlawful brother to break the prisoner out. John Wayne stars as sheriff John T. Chance and is aided in his efforts to keep the law by Walter Brennan, Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson. Angie Dickinson is the love interest and Western regulars Claude Akins, Ward Bond and Pedro Gonzalez are also featured. A smart Western where gunplay is matched by wordplay, "Rio Bravo" is a terrific ensemble piece and director Hawks’ last great film. Selected for The National Film Registry in December, 2014.

Shoes showing at Library of Congress Packard Campus Theatre

SHOES (Universal, 1916)
Renowned silent era writer-director Lois Weber drew on her experiences as a missionary to create "Shoes," a masterfully crafted melodrama heightened by Weber’s intent to create, as she noted in an interview, "a slice out of real life." Weber’s camera empathetically documents the suffering her central character, an underpaid shopgirl (Mary MacLaren) struggling to support her family, endures daily—standing all day behind a shop counter, walking in winter weather in shoes that provided no protection, stepping on a nail that pierces her flesh. Combining a Progressive era reformer’s zeal to document social problems with a vivid flair for visual storytelling, Weber details Eva’s growing desire for the pair of luxurious shoes she passes each day in a shop window, her self-examination in a cracked mirror after she agrees to go out with a cabaret tout to acquire the shoes, her repugnance as the man puts his hands on her body, and her shame as she breaks down in tears while displaying her newly acquired goods to her mother. The film, which opens with pages from social worker Jane Addams’s sociological study of prostitution, was acclaimed by "Variety" as "a vision of life as it actually is ... devoid of theatricalism." It was added to the National Film Registry in December, 2014. Makia Matsumura will provide live musical accompaniment for the program which includes the National Film Registry comedy shorts “Mabel’s Blunder” and “Matrimony’s Speed Limit.”
