Film: Sorry Wrong Number

Oct 24 - 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Sorry, Wrong Number

 Starring Barbara Stanwyck, Burt Lancaster, Ann Richards, Wendell Corey.

The suspense runs high in this nail-biting story told in real time of a bedridden woman who answers the phone only to hear two men planning a murder—hers. Her husband is delayed at work, and the servants have the night off. Repeated phone calls only compound her mounting terror. Stanwyck received a well-deserved Academy Award nomination for her frantic portrayal.

Paramount. 1948. 1 hr. 29 mins.

Director: Anatole Litvak.

Film: The Glass Menagerie

Nov 7 - 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Glass Menagerie

Starring Jane Wyman, Kirk Douglas, Gertrude Lawrence, Arthur Kennedy.

Playwright Tennessee Williams wrote the screenplay (with Peter Berneis) for this first filmed version of his hit Broadway play about a shy, disabled girl’s awareness of the world around her in St. Louis and her efforts to free herself from her mother’s sad life. The film, according to Newsweek, “has a soundness that is not very often achieved in film rewrites of such delicate stage material.” Not on video.

Warner Bros. 1950. 1 hr. 47 mins.

Director: Irving Rapper.

 

Film: The Adventures of Mark Twain

University Events - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 00:15

Nov 21 - 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Mark Twain

Starring Fredric March, Alexis Smith, Donald Crisp, Alan Hale.

America’s most celebrated humorist and satirist is given top treatment in this biographical saga. One New York City critic wrote, “This is a picture not to be missed. Irving Rapper, one of Hollywood’s most sensitive directors, made the film, and Jesse L. Lasky, of Sergeant York note, produced it. This is screen 
biography at its best.”

Special Guests: Composers John Morgan and William Stromberg, who restored Max Steiner’s music score.

Warner Bros. 1944. 2 hrs. 10 mins. 

Director: Irving Rapper.
