Hooray for Old Hollywood

The exhibit "Who Framed Robin Hood?" is presented by Houston's Hollywood Frame Gallery in conjunction with the Warner Bros. Festival of Classics -- a weeklong smorgasbord of the studio's finest movies that wraps today. "Robin Hood," which continues through Tuesday, includes a wealth of movie memorabilia (stills, lobby cards, posters and autographs by Warners icons like Errol Flynn, Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart and Edward G. Robinson) related to the films in the festival, ranging from The Jazz Singer (1927) to The Fugitive (1993). Much of the artwork is for sale.

The final films in the classics fest hail from the '60s: Days of Wine and Roses (2 p.m.), Bullitt (4:30 p.m.), Bonnie and Clyde (7 p.m.) and the director's cut of Sam Peckinpah's woolly western The Wild Bunch (9:30 p.m.). Single-feature admission is $6.75; a full-day pass costs $15.

The frame gallery plans a post-fest Warner Bros. fete in honor of the studio's 75th anniversary from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
