    Gaslight - [#1035] Gaslight Ingrid Bergman stars as Paula Alquist, a shy heiress who, in her youth, found the body of her famous Aunt Alice, an entertainer murdered in their home. At the time of the tragedy, Paula is sent away to boarding school, and returns to London ten years later with her new husband Gregory Anton (Charles Boyer), whom she married after a whirlwind romance. Shortly after moving back into her childhood home, however, she begins to lose her grip on reality, and becomes convinced her husband is trying to drive her insane. Joseph Cotton stars as Brian Cameron, a fan of Paula's aunt, now a Scotland Yard detective, who takes a special interest in Paula.

This film also marks the memorable film debut of Angela Lansbury as Nancy Oliver, a maid unwittingly drawn into Anton's plans. The film also took an Oscar for Best Art Direction, along with 5 other nominations, including Best Actor for Boyer and Supporting Actress for Lansbury. duration 1:53:48   STEREO TVPG

    Moyers & Company [#130H] Suppressing The Vote * The fight against voter fraud is a solution in search of a problem - documented instances of voter fraud these days are surprisingly few. Nevertheless, since the 2010 midterm elections, new election laws passed by Republican-dominated legislatures in 14 states have sought to limit voter registration or require photo IDs in order to vote - identification that for many is too expensive or otherwise difficult to obtain. Such laws, according to a recent report from the Brennan Center for Justice "will make it harder for hundreds of thousands of poor Americans to vote." That's why some say the real goal isn't about fighting voter fraud; it's about enabling voter suppression. < br />This week, Bill talks to Keesha Gaskins, an attorney and co-author of that report, and Michael Waldman, president of the Brennan Center for Justice, about modern efforts to keep minorities and the poor in particular from exercising one of the most fundamental American rights. "When these votes come under attack by this level of partisan gamesmanship, it's completely inappropriate and antithetical to our history," Gaskins tells Bill. "This is a very real political issue, but beyond that, this is a real issue of real Americans being able to access and be self-determinative in how we're governed."
    * Also on the program, Bill talks with Anthony Baxter, director of You've Been Trumped!, an upcoming documentary about Donald Trump's aggressive efforts to build "the greatest golf course in the world" along ancient sand dunes on the coast of Scotland. A veteran journalist, Baxter says what Trump and even local media are hailing an economic boon is actually a disaster threatening the environment and callously disrupting peoples' lives - a perfect example of capitalism run amuck, and how the rest of us pay the price. "It seems to me there's one rule for the super-rich and one rule for everybody else," Baxter says. "And the 99% of people in the world are tired and fed up of having money and power riding roughshod over their lives and our planet. Our planet, I don't think, can afford these kinds of decisions."

    Joann Sfar Draws from Memory At just 39 years old, the prolific Joann Sfar has published 150 graphic novels, including the French best-seller Rabbi's Cat and the New York Times best-seller Little Vampire, and recently crossed over into feature films with Gainsbourg: Vie Heroique and the adaptation of Rabbi's Cat. This program tracks the graphic artist's odyssey through the Algerian and Eastern-European Jewish heritage that serves as the wellspring of his work. Filmed over a two-year period, the camera follows the passionate and perceptive Sfar around his adopted home of Paris - observing the artist at work and capturing his thoughts on family life, Algeria's past, creativity and his improvisatory method, the inspiration for his alter-ego cat and his dislike of being pigeonholed as a "Jewish" artist. A 10-minute prologue offers a chronological history of the comic book and places Sfar within this 75-year artistic tradition. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    American Masters [#1904L] Marilyn Monroe: Still Life There are the movie roles, but it is the still images - the iconic face, expressions and poses - that make up our collective memory of Marilyn. She was, arguably, the most photographed person ever. Her relationship with the camera produced an enduring body of work that still dazzles and moves us, evoking both desire and pathos. These photographs are an ageless testament to her grace, guts and sexiness - her humor and vulnerability. She understood their power, and she exploited it. She created, and curated, her own image - lips puckered to the lens, inviting us to kiss her back. She would be 80 now. She died more than 40 years ago. We look back through Norman Mailer, Gloria Steinem and Hugh Heffner, as Marilyn persists in her image. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-S

    War [#104H] Pride of Our Nation Examines the invasion of Europe. By June 1944, there are signs on both sides of the world that the tide of the war is turning. On June 6, 1944 -- D-Day -- in the European Theater, a million and a half Allied troops embark on one of the greatest invasions in history -- the invasion of France. Among them are Dwain Luce of Mobile, who drops behind enemy lines in a glider; Quentin Aanenson of Luverne, who flies his first combat mission over the Normandy coast; and Joseph Vaghi of Waterbury, who manages to survive the disastrous landing on Omaha Beach where German resistance nearly decimates the American forces. In the Pacific, the long climb from island to island toward the Japanese homeland is well underway, but the enemy seems increasingly determined to defend to the death every piece of territory they hold. The Marines, including Ray Pittman of Mobile, fight the costliest Pacific battle to date - on the island of Saipan - encountering, for the first time, Japanese civilians who, like their soldiers, seem resolved to die for their emperor rather than surrender. duration 2:20:03   SRND51 TV14 (Secondary audio: DVI)
