HEY, CHECK OUT THIS COLLECTION OF CINEMATIC GEMS!

It's the complete schedule for the Film Forum's super salute to Frank Capra...all the dazzling flicks you can see, and the dates on which they will be screened. Plus a detailed listing of the superstars and the dedicated supporting players who happily gave their thespic best for the man who may have been the world's most generous, if demanding, boss. (For a stunning recollection of how this gutsy director survived the brutally challenging birth of the talkies, click here to read my 1977 New York Times interview with Capra.)
