Hunks, Hogs and Hot Ladies

Just a quick reminder to all the classic film lovers out there that this weekend Film Forum continues its celebration of Universal Studios.  Forget the beach and curl up with some of these treasures from the Universal vault:

Indulge in soapy romance with two Douglas Sirk classics (both starring delectable Rock Hudson) with Written on the Wind (1956) and Magnificent Obsession (1954).  
 
Enjoy a double date with two of Hollywood's most iconic leading ladies—Audrey Hepburn and Doris Day—when the Forum presents Charade (1963) and Pillow Talk (1959).  


Or, skip brunch and spend the afternoon with the cuddliest pork belly (sorry, Miss Piggy) to ever hit the silver screen: Babe (1995).  While this heroic ham doesn't come with a complimentary mimosa, this little piggy does star in an even more audacious and adorable sequel Babe: Pig in the City (1998), which, unfortunately, is not part of Film Forum's line-up, but is available for you to complete a porcine film festival at home
