is the local classics film society which exhibits on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month* at
2648 North Hackett Avenue
starting at 7:00 p.m.
The mood of this classic "thunderstorm mystery" has probably never been surpassed, and mood is all in this film. Dorothy McGuire, George Brent, Ethel Barrymore, Elsa Lanchester and Rhys Williams star. Who has been murdering poor, afflicted women in this small little town in New England? And who is now after another woman with an affliction, the mute servant girl (played by McGuire)? And has he got somehow into the house one night during a storm? One of the screen's best, and superbly photographed.
Screenplay by Mel Dinelli based on a novel by Ethel Lina White. Photographed by Nicholas Musuraca. Music by Roy Webb. Directed by Robert Siodmak.
" ... classic American films
distinguished foreign films,
films you've missed,
films you want to see again,
you may never have had the opportunity to see."
The role of a film society has several elements:
to offer a large part of the literature of film;
to provide a venue for film study and discussion;
to revive well-known but little-seen classics;
to provide some historical background related to motion pictures;
to introduce a new audience to films that are little-known to most followers of films;
and, lastly, it ought to entertain!
