Henry HathawayTribute and Booksigning! Author Rudy Behlmer and Polly Platt In Person!

To celebrate the publication of the new book Henry Hathaway: A Directors Guild of America Oral History, edited by film historian Rudy Behlmer (Memo From David O. Selznick) based on interviews conducted by production designer/screenwriter/producer Polly Platt (BROADCAST NEWS, PRETTY BABY), we will be screening one of Henry Hathaway’s most acclaimed films, followed by a discussion and booksigning with Rudy Behlmer and Polly Platt.

CALL NORTHSIDE 777, 1948, Criterion, 111 min. In the late 1940’s, hardhitting action director Hathaway was the pioneer of a new breed of startlingly neo-realistic, noirish crime film. Pictures like HOUSE ON 92nd STREET and KISS OF DEATH helped to cement his reputation as a genre master, and there's no better example of his straight-from-the-headlines style than in this superior suspenser, with James Stewart trying to prove that convicted killer Richard Conte is innocent. With Lee J. Cobb, Helen Walker.
