Movie Day

The Criminal Code, 1:30 pm; Scarface, 3:30 pm. The Museum of the Moving Image is hosting a 39-feature retrospective on quintessential Hollywood director Howard Hawks. The Criminal Code is a stylistically elegant, colorfully cast prison melodrama starring Walter Huston as a warden who decides to give a young convict a second chance by hiring him as his valet. Scarface is a brutal gangster film of the 1930s starring Paul Muni as an ambitious, insanely violent gangster who climbs the ladder of success in the mob, but whose weaknesses, chiefly his charged love for his own sister, prove to be his downfall.
