Bill Hader isn’t just a great comedian—he’s also a film buff. In June, he’ll be hosting The Essentials Jr. on Turner Classic Movies with a great line-up of The Adventures of Robin Hood, The General, Stagecoach, and Singin’ in the Rain. He also recently stopped by Criterion Collection headquarters, dug through their magic DVD closet, and gave them a top 10 list of double-features from their library. Usually, when people give Criterion a Top 10, it’s only ten films, but Hader explains, “I couldn’t pick ten . . . sorry. So I programmed Criterion double features, which is what I tend to do on Sunday nights anyway.”
Hit the jump for some of his double-feature pairings and comments on some of the films he picked.
