(1940, Sam Wood) Growing up in Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, at the beginning of the century: a very young William Holden and Martha Scott (repeating her stage role) have a confrontation over an ice cream soda, and a life together, presided over by Stage Manager Frank Craven (also repeating). More conventional but generally faithful adaptation of Thornton Wilder’s scenery-less stage legend, with music by Aaron Copland. 35mm. Approx 90 min.
