Fear in the Night (1947) 72 min. (b&w)
Directed by Maxwell Shane, with DeForest Kelley, Paul Kelly, Ann Doran, Kay Scott

Before the Starship Enterprise took flight, “DR. ‘BONES’ McCOY” was a bank teller on Earth, dreaming that he had stabbed a man in an octagonal room of mirrors and locked the body in a closet! Could it have really been him? The police seem to think so, but a detective thinks he’s uncovered a darker and more insidious plot. This film-noir will have you questioning whether you, in fact, were the killer. Don’t miss this chance to see Kelley in the hit film that started him on the road to stardom!

Kid Monk Baroni (1952) 80 min. (b&w)
Directed by Harold D. Schuster, with Leonard Nimoy, Richard Rober, Bruce Cabot, Allene Roberts

You can’t use a mind-meld in a boxing ring. Nevertheless, “MR. SPOCK” landed his first knock-out starring role as gang-member-turned-boxer Paul Baroni, known as “Monk” because of his misshapen face. He rises to the heights of success in the sordid world of boxing against a real-life background of boxers, gold-digging sex kittens, crooked gamblers, and the mob! Will you enter the ring? Not to be missed!
