Sunday, November 17, 2013
Cast: Rock Hudson, Robert Stack, Dorothy Malone The three principal cast members and director of Written on the Wind are reunited for a black and white CinemaScope classic. Hudson plays a New Orleans reporter who finds himself drawn to a down-and-out World War I veteran and air circus flyer (Stack) and his charming wife (Malone), with tragic consequences. Based on William Faulkner’s novel, Pylon, this depression-set period piece is the most fatalistically glamorous of Sirk’s films.
