Twentieth Century

When: Sat., March 1, 2 p.m. 2014

The Main Library film series It Happened One Year: Classic Movies of 1934 continues with a screening of Twentieth Century. A Broadway producer (John Barrymore) whose star attraction (Carole Lombard) left him after he turned Svengali on her finds his career in shambles; when he crosses paths with her again during a train trip aboard the Twentieth Century, he devises a scheme to get her (and his fortunes) back. Director Howard Hawks was no stranger to screwball comedies, later helming the classics His Girl Friday and Bringing Up Baby (among others). (Matt Brunson)
