  • Actors Jeanne Crain and Ethel Waters embrace.



Saturday, January 18

Kazan took over Hollywood’s first anti-racism film from John Ford, the tumultuous courtroom scene bearing Kazan’s personal stamp. “Directed with a fine eye for the vicious undercurrents of Southern decay… Hasn’t been given its due.” – Pauline Kael. With Ethel Barrymore, Ethel Waters (Oscar nomination, Best Supporting Actress), Nina Mae McKinneyDCP. Approx 102 min.
