Star Patty McCormack in person, with host Foster Hirsch
(1956, Mervyn LeRoy) As lightning flashes over a dark lake, it’s time for sweet little Patty McCormack to start picking off the family, plus that nosy handyman Henry Jones. Watch out for those stairs! Pig-tailed Patty proves that even an 11-year-old can be a Grande Dame. Kid-loving French critic François Truffaut hated it. 35mm. Approx. 129 min.
Presented with support from the Robert Jolin Osborne Endowed Fund for American Classic Cinema of the 1930s, '40s, and '50s
“A steadily mounting panoply of hysterical camp mannerisms.”
