Yes, you may thank the celluloid gods that the movie was made in 1942, and you can even pay them homage by attending a midnight screening Friday and Saturday at the Inwood Theatre, 5458 W. Lovers Lane. The movie will also play at 11 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Call 214-764-9106.
Sept. 8, midnight; Sept. 8-9, 11 a.m.
