Oct. 19Warning: The dizzying pace and rapid-fire banter of this hysterical 1934 screwball comedy may cause whiplash. John Barrymore's megalomaniacal producer transforms lingerie model Mildred Plotka (the luminous Carole Lombard) into diva supreme Lily Garland. Director Howard Hawks keeps this moving faster than the speeding locomotive of the title. 5:30 and 9:30 pm. $9.50. Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St., Cambridge. 617-876-6837. wwwbrattlefilm.org
