JUNE

On June 1st we will fondly recall the 30th anniversary of the Schwarzenegger classic "Total Recall". Much of the hand-crafted animation and miniature effects in the film were created out of necessity, as the software intended to digitally render the effects didn't work.

The comic hero "Dick Tracy" turns 30 on June 15th. While this film may not be heralded as a classic in every household, it remains the highest grossing film of Warren Beatty's career.

On June 30th, we'll celebrate the 60th anniversary of Billy Wilder's Oscar-winning classic "The Apartment". This was the last black and white film to win the Best Picture award, until "The Artist" in 2011 (sorry, "Schindler's List" doesn't count).
