Tonight’s installment of the AFI’s Film Buff’s Club features director Henry King’s The Black Swan, a 1942 swashbuckler in which Tyrone Powers helps his pal, the new governor of Jamaica, drive pirates (and in particular Anthony Quinn and George Sanders) from the Caribbean. Time Out calls the film, whose Technicolor cinematography won an Oscar, “splendidly overripe.” As always, there’s a newsreel (1942 News Parade) and a cartoon (Mutiny on the Bunny). At 6:30 p.m. at the Kennedy Center’s American Film Institute Theater. $6.50. (202) 828-4000. (Mark Jenkins)
