John Ford, at his story-telling best, brings to life the legend of Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and the gunfight at the OK Corral. -- NAU’s College of Arts and Letters Film Series opens its Fall 2016 installment of the popular Tuesday night screenings on Aug. 30 with the rarely screened Charles Chaplin 1928 silent film classic, “The Circus,” which film critic Roger Ebert called one of Chaplin’s funniest movies.

The fall season is a tribute to Roger Ebert, who died in 2013. Ebert was a Chicago Sun-Times film critic and was the first film critic to win a Pulitzer Prize for Criticism. In 1975, Ebert began co-hosting a weekly film review television show with Chicago Tribune film critic Gene Siskel. Over the decades Ebert identified relatively few standout films as Great Movies, which he defined as any movie he could not bear the thought of never seeing again.

The film series offers a line-up that balances well-known audience favorites with lesser-known but critically acclaimed films, as well as a mix of genres, decades and stars.

From the 1940s we present well-known classics by two of American film’s most celebrated directors. Billy Wilder’s “Double Indemnity” is an early film noir masterpiece. John Ford’s “My Darling Clementine” is perhaps the best screen version of the Gunfight at the OK Corral. Less well known is Jean Cocteau’s 1946 “Beauty and the Beast,” a gorgeous surreal fantasy adapted from the well-known French fairy tale. Ebert called it “one of the most magical of all films.”

We are very pleased to present a film that we’ve wanted to screen for years: 1964’s “A Hard Day’s Night,” starring The Beatles. From the same year we have the film that Ebert called the best of all the Bond films: “Goldfinger,” starring Sean Connery.

Our other films from the 1960s are less known but are widely hailed as classics. Orson Welles’ “Chimes at Midnight,” which Welles wrote and directed, is the film that many, including Welles himself, considered the director’s greatest work. Luis Buñuel’s icily sensual masterpiece, “Belle de Jour,” starring Catherine Deneuve, is a film that Ebert called perhaps the best erotic film of modern times.

For Halloween, we bring you James Whale’s “The Bride of Frankenstein,” which Ebert called the best of the Frankenstein movies. Next comes a thrilling, but largely overlooked, 1970s detective film, “Night Moves,” starring Gene Hackman.

And to get you out of the house on election night, we have the funniest of the Marx Brothers films, “Duck Soup,” in which Groucho, as the president of the republic of Fredonia, announces in song, "If you think this country's bad off now, just wait till I get through with it!”

To wrap up the season, we have four films from the 1980s. Two of the films, “Atlantic City” and “Paris, Texas,” give us two great European directors exploring universal narrative themes situated in iconic American settings. Lawrence Kasdan’s steamy “Body Heat,” featuring Kathleen Turner’s remarkable big-screen debut, is an 80s update of “Double Indemnity.” We end with the multiple Oscar-winning romantic comedy “Moonstruck.”

Roger Ebert said, “One of the gifts a movie lover can give another is the title of a wonderful film they have not yet discovered." We could not agree more.
