Classic Night: The Amazing Howard Hughes (1977) @ The Flicks 2 @ The Empire
Only screening at The Flicks 2 @ The Empire on Street 130
This work is well acted by Jones and the supporting cast. If you are looking to find out for the first time about one of the world’s richest ever men then this is a good place to start as any.
William Graham’s careful direction shows its not hard to see why once someone has accrued such vast wealth (to the point where money almost has no meaning) it becomes harder and harder to trust the people around you. On that basis its possible to see where Hughes’ personal life fell apart, how he failed in love, and even to feel a tad of sympathy for him! Must-see for the classic lovers!
