Friendswood Library flicks: classic movie lovers unite

Friendswood Library flicks is an ongoing movie series held every other Thursday evening in the Friendswood Public Library Activity Room.  Films are shown on an 8 X 10 ft. screen.  Movies are free and begin at 6:20pm.  Refreshments provided.

 July 23: Letter from an Unknown Woman starring Joan Fontaine and Louis Jourdan. Directed by Max Ophuls in 1948.  This film is not rated and runs 86 minutes.
In 1992, Letter from an Unknown Woman was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

One of the greatest achievements in American film. –Jeffrey M. Anderson (Combustible Celluloid)


August 6: A Shot in the Dark starring Peter Sellers, Elke Sommer, George Sanders, and Herbert Lom. Directed by Blake Edwards in 1964. This film is rated PG and runs 102 minutes.

The second Pink Panther film is a timeless piece of knockabout comic artistry and undoubtedly the best of the series. –Film4

August 20: It Happened in Brooklyn starring Frank Sinatra, Peter Lawford, Kathryn Grayson, and Jimmy Durante. Directed by Richard Whorf in 1947.  This film is Not Rated and runs 104 minutes. 

It Happened in Brooklyn is a blast, especially if you’re a Sinatra fan. It’s packed with great songs by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne, including “The Brooklyn Bridge,” “Whose Baby Are You?,” “It’s the Same Old Dream,” “The Song’s Gotta Come From the Heart,” and the classic “Time After Time.” ---Adam Lounsbery
