Westport Country Playhouse Camelot-Collected Stories

25 Powers Ct., Westport, CT Phone: 203-227-4177.

7 pm. The conflict between the established artist and the adulatory fan who becomes a protégé, disciple, colleague and friend – and finally threatening rival – is one of those great topics.

Avon Theatre French Cinematheque: ELEVATOR TO THE GALLOWS (1958)

12/13/2016

272 Bedford St., Stamford, CT Phone: 203-967-3660.

7:30 pm. The feature film debut of famed director Louis Malle is an interesting, modern film noir. Florence Carala (Jeanne Moreau) and Julien Tavernier (Maurice Ronet) are lovers who plan to kill Florence's husband, a wealthy industrialist who is also Julien's boss. Moreau gives an astonishing performance, perverse but naive as she leads her young lover down a path that can only lead to doom for both of them. Malle and his cinematographer Henri Decae make extensive use of Paris at night, giving the film the feel of claustrophobia and desperation reminiscent of the classic noir films. The excellent score by Miles Davis adds to the entire effect of this mystery thriller. Members $7, non members $12, students $9
