COMEDIANS. IN PERSON. SCREENING THE FILMS THEY LOVE.
Presented by Janeane Garofalo
(1972, Peter Yates) A group of unlikely jewel thieves attempt – repeatedly – to heist a rare diamond from the Brooklyn Museum in this caper comedy starring Robert Redford, George Segal, Paul Sand and a scene-stealing Ron Leibman. Written by Oscar-winning screenwriter William Goldman (based on the Donald E. Westlake novel). With a quirky, jazz score by Quincy Jones, fabulous early ‘70s New York City locations, and a supporting cast including Zero Mostel, Moses Gunn, and Christopher Guest in his film debut. 35mm.
This screening will be introduced by Janeane Garofalo (who personally selected this film) and will also include a lively moderated discussion between Garofalo and comedian/actor Wayne Federman, plus an audience Q&A.
Thanks to Bruce Goldstein and Joe Reid (Fox).
