OUR TOWN

(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.
12:30, 4:50, 9:20

PRIDE OF THE YANKEES

(1942, Sam Wood) Love between Gary Cooper as Yankee Hall of Famer first baseman Lou Gehrig and Teresa Wright, and his fall to the disease that now bears his name – and with Babe Ruth stealing scenes wholesale as himself. Major trouble: Gehrig was a lefty, Cooper not. Menzies’ solution: shoot Cooper with uniform name and numbers mirror-image reversed, then flip the finished film.  35mm. Approx 127 min.
2:20, 6:45*

*introduced by Maria Cooper Janis, daughter of Gary Cooper
