Sunday Movie Club
Sunday November 5, 2017
2:00 PM until 5:00 PM
Back for its second season, mark your calendars to travel with us--through the magic of movies--to Europe, Australia, China, Mexico, India.... All without leaving town. On two Sundays in November, December, January and February we will be showing a feature length movie at the Library at 2 o’clock. A wonderful opportunity to escape for a couple of hours and share a movie with friends and neighbors. After each movie there will be time to socialize and discuss the film. There is no charge for the event. Feel free to bring your own (non-alcoholic) refreshments.
The films are scheduled as follows:
November 5, SILK STOCKINGS, from 1957, is an MGM film adaptation of the 1955 musical of the same name, which in itself was a remake of NINOTCHKA, the successful Billy Wilder movie (1939) with Greta Garbo. The film stars Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse and was directed by Rouben Mamoulian. It was nominated for two Oscars, for Best Film (The Bridge on the River Kwai won) and Best Actress (Kay Kendall for Les Girls). It would be Astaire's last musical comedy, almost reason in itself to come and see it (again).1 hr., 57 min.
