STANFORD

221 University (at Emerson), Palo Alto, (650) 324-3700, www.stanfordtheatre.org. $6. This handsomely restored neighborhood palace usually screens pre-1960 Hollywood fare in the best available prints, with excellent projection and a courteous staff.

WEDNESDAY: The clock runs out for Gary Cooper in the western classic High Noon (Fred Zinnemann, 1952; 7:30 p.m. ), screening with John Wayne as John Ford's The Quiet Man (1952; 5:10, 9:05 p.m. ), a beloved Irish love story with Maureen O'Hara.

THURSDAY & FRIDAY: Preston Sturges' scintillating screwball farce The Palm Beach Story (1942; 5:45, 9:25 p.m. ) is oddly paired with the stodgy Fox musical Alexander's Ragtime Band (Henry King, 1938; 7:30 p.m. ), with Tyrone Power, Alice Faye, Don Ameche, and Ethel Merman.

SATURDAY THROUGH TUESDAY: Two offbeat John Huston/Humphrey Bogart/Robert Morley comedies set on boats, The African Queen (1951; 7:30 p.m.; also Sat & Sun 3:50 p.m. ) and Beat the Devil (1953; 5:45, 9:25 p.m. ), the former a huge success, the latter The Big Lebowski of its day (a flop that rapidly develops an intense cult following).
