TERMINAL STATION

2:258:20*10:15

Wednesday, September 30

Stazione Termini (1953, De Sica) At Rome’s bustling train station, Philadelphia housewife Jennifer Jones decides to end her affair with Italian-American professor Montgomery Clift, and then the tormented discussions begin. De Sica’s first English-language film (dialogue by Truman Capote), shot on location over 65 straight winter nights with two of the most neurotic of stars, was shredded by producer David O. Selznick (to just over an hour) for the disastrous U.S. version titled Indiscretion of an American Wife. We are showing De Sica’s revelatory complete version. Approx. 90 min. DCP.

*8:20 show will be introduced by Daniel Selznick, son of producer David O. Selznick
