          Comedy legends Bud Abbott and Lou Costello gallop their way to the racetrack in It Ain't Hay - a rare, early film based on a short story by Damon Runyon. When a taxi driver (Costello) unwittingly kills a carriage driver's elderly horse, he and his pal (Abbott) attempt to replace ...it by borrowing the famous racehorse Tea Biscuit. A reward for the stolen animal is announced, shifty Broadway locals, such as Umbrella Sam and Chauncey the Eye get involved, and the duo trots from one hilarious situation to another. The stakes are high in this comedy favorite that features classic routines including Mudder/Fodder and Betting Parlor.

          A masterpiece of Italian filmmaking and foundation stone of the neorealist film movement, Vittorio De Sica's The Bicycle Thief is a harrowing portrait of loss and depravation in post-war Rome.Awarded an honorary Oscar for Best Foreign Film, and regularly voted one of the greatest... films of all time, The Bicycle Thief is a simple, powerful movie about a man who needs a job. Like the great neo-realist film that preceded it, Roberto Rosselini's Open City, The Bicycle Thief was shot on location in the streets of Rome using non-professional actors, giving chilling authenticity to the story of a man's desperate bid to provide for his family.De Sica combined with long-time collaborator, writer Cesare Zavattini (Miracle in Milan, Umberto D), to produce a potent mix of real life detail, detective story and poetic melodrama as a father (Lamberto Maggiorani) and his devoted son (Enzo Staiola) roam the streets of the capital in search of the bicycle that will deliver them from poverty.
