Ah, the double bill! During Hollywood’s Golden Age – unless the feature was Gone with the Wind length – your movie ticket usually entitled you to see an “A picture” (bigger stars, bigger budgets) paired with a “B picture” (lesser stars, smaller budgets – but oftentimes the more entertaining part of the bill). In the Golden Age of the Revival Theater, double features of classic films – often of equal merit – offered three to five hour marathons to hardened buffs, who could plunge hip deep into a director’s or an actor’s oeuvre or a genre or a theme, or spend the intermission head-scratching over a particular combination. Younger moviegoers – grown up ordering tickets by smartphone – have missed all the fun. Well, They’re Back! Here are twenty-six classic pair-ups – all Two for the Price of One!
