That Man from Rio

As part of their Anniversary Classics Series, Laemmle Theatres presents a one-night only screening of That Man from Rio, playing on Wednesday, August 21 at 7:00pm!

A blow dart-wielding thug snatches a rare statuette from the Musée de l’Homme; an anthropologist (Jean Servais) is kidnapped in broad Parisian daylight; a serviceman (Jean-Paul Belmondo) begins his 8-day leave by changing to civvies in a Métro entrance and witnesses his fiancée (Françoise Dorléac) getting kidnapped herself – and then the chase begins: by motorcycle, shoe leather, flight to Rio de Janeiro sans ticket or passport, airport baggage carrier, cable car, pink car complete with green stars and a rumble seat, water skies, Amazon river boat, seaplane, jungle vine… all shot in breathtaking widescreen and color.
