Lest we forget the star of two TV sitcom classics had a pretty good run as a film actor before his network success, the Aero presents a Bob Newhart double feature , with -- yes -- Bob Newhart in person. Newhart plays a tobacco-industry henchman in 1971's Cold Turkey (directed by All in the Family creator Norman Lear), out to stop the town of Eagle Rock, Iowa, from winning the Valiant Tobacco Company's $25 million prize in a stop-smoking promotion gone awry. In 1968's caper flick Hot Millions , corporate executive Newhart suspects computer programmer (!) Peter Ustinov of being a hacker. While the premises alone raise plenty of questions (bring yours for the between-screenings Q&A), the most burning may be why neither film is available on DVD.
