THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS

Introduction by Author Colin Fleming at 7:00pm Show

75th Anniversary!

(1942) dir Orson Welles w/Joseph Cotton, Dolores Costello, Anne Baxter, Tim Holt, Agnes Moorehead, Ray Collins, Erskine Sanford [88 min; 35mm]
Welles’ MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS, despite merciless cuts mandated by the studio, remains a remarkable, gorgeous film about a rich Midwestern family at the turn of the 20th century.

“Although reams have been written about the mutilation of Orson Welles’ second feature, what remains of it is nevertheless a major accomplishment.” – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

“Even in this truncated form it’s amazing and memorable.” – Pauline Kael, New Yorker

“A pretty sensational movie.” – J. Hoberman, Village Voice
