The FOCUS Film Society Fall 2017 Schedule


December 9th

All Mine to Give

A 1957 Technicolor melodrama film starring Glynis Johns, Cameron Mitchell, and Rex Thompson. When first one parent, then the other dies, six children have to look after themselves in the American west of the mid-19th century.

This story is based on a true-life story set in Wisconsin, based on an article The Day They Gave Babies Away by Dale Eunson and Katherine (Albert) Eunson, which first appeared in the December 1946 issue of Cosmopolitan.

Brace yourself; this is a real tear-jerker!

" ... classic American films

distinguished foreign films,

films you've missed,

films you want to see again,

and films

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 educate; 

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!
