4070 Vilas Hall
Cast: Gene Tierney, Cornel Wilde, Vincent Price Rich girl Ellen (an icily memorable Tierney) will stop at nothing - and we mean nothing - to corner the affections of her husband (Wilde). Filmed in gorgeous, saturated Technicolor, this fascinating combination of femme fatale noir and family melodrama is one of the key films of the 1940s for 20th Century Fox and for director Stahl. The screening of a beautiful 35mm print will be introduced by Fox Film Archivist Schawn Belston.
