Damp days like today naturally lead one's thoughts to lusher, more tropical climes—a leisurely jaunt to the islands, let's say, or across the equator.

To remedy that, The Castro Theatre is presenting six days of the master's undersung gems, starting tomorrow, which will include the "one-take" wonder Rope, the often-mimicked The Lady Vanishes (we're looking at you, Flightplan), and the witty Lifeboat, which was set entirely on... um, a lifeboat...
