UW Cinematheque: Die Hard

December 15, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

DIE HARD

USA | 1988 | 35mm | 131 min.
Director: John McTiernan
Cast: Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Bedelia
NYPD Detective John McClane (Willis) arrives in L.A. for a rapprochement with his career-driven wife (Bedelia) at her company’s Christmas party high atop a skyscraper. Interrupted by a band of terrorists/thieves led by the diabolically suave Hans Gruber (Rickman), McClane decides to play cowboy and take on Gruber and his gang while saving his marriage. Die Hard skyrocketed Willis to movie stardom and set the standard, to-date unmatched, for cop action pictures. Preceded by Tex Avery’s The Peachy Cobbler (1950, 7 min.).  SUN., 12/15, 2 p.m.
