Speaking of the Egypytian, while introducing Crispin Glover the lady there mentioned that at 7:30 on Dec 17th -- tonight -- they would be screening Nicholas Ray's masterpiece "Bigger Than Life."

It's an amazing saga of cortisone addiction and psychosis starring James Mason and shot in Ray's over-the-top saturated primaries. See it first if you have a chance, then read Sam Wasson's article here.
