Description: Cary Grant stars as French officer Henri Rochard, who is paired with a WAC lieutenant (Ann Sheridan) for duties in post-WWII Europe. Although at first at odds, the two soon fall in love and decide to marry - only to discover that the only way to get Rochard back to the US is via the War Brides Act (there being no provision for war grooms). Hawks advised Grant on how to play his character in drag: "just act like a man in woman's clothes." The ruse worked well - audiences flocked to see it and Grant called the film "the best comedy I've ever done." Director Howard Hawks shot the exterior scenes on location in Heidelberg, Germany with interiors in London. Surprisingly, the film was based on a true story. 105 min. ***All Packard Campus programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Starring Robert Mitchum, Deborah Kerr, Michael Anderson, Jr., Peter Ustinov, Glynis Johns and Dina Merrill, it was one of the first Hollywood films shot on location in Australia, where temperatures often soared to 108 degrees. The film received critical acclaim and was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress in a Leading Role for Deborah Kerr. 133 min. ***All Packard Campus programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Description: In this fictionalized account based on actual events, ruthless Nazi Colonel Von Waldheim (Paul Scofield) arranges to move a stolen cache of priceless art treasures from Paris before the Allies retake the city. He commandeers a train to Germany, which rallies Resistance fighters, led by an initially reluctant Burt Lancaster, to somehow stop him without destroying the legacy hes trying to confiscate. Directed by John Frankenheimer, the film was shot in black and white and almost entirely on location in France. New York Times critic Bosley Crowthers called it realistic and intensely engrossing and praised the film for its action and hair-trigger suspense. The Train was Oscar nominated for best writing and was named as one of the top ten films of the year by the National Board of Review. 133 min. ***All Packard Campus programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Description: John Wayne stars as Sean Mercer, a macho game hunter who, along with his crew, is engaged in the exciting but dangerous business of catching wild animals for delivery to zoos around the world. Howard Hawks directed this adventure tale shot on location in the wilds of Tanganyika (in what is now Tanzania). According to Hawks, all of the animal captures in the picture were actually performed by the actors; no stuntmen or animal handlers were substituted on-screen. Like many other major films of Hawks, the film is more about the relationships among the characters than plot. Featured in the cast are Bruce Cabot, Red Buttons, Hardy Kruger and Elsa Martinelli. Russell Harlans cinematography received an Oscar nomination and Henry Mancinis catchy Baby Elephant Walk, written for a scene in the film, became one of the composers most popular works. 157 min. ***All Packard Campus programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Stage Alive presents The Young Irelanders:

Thursday, April 14, 2016

Time: 7:30pm
Location: Culpeper County High School
Address: 14240 Achievement Drive, Culpeper, VA, 22701
Organized by: Stage Alive
Description: The Young Irelanders comprises eight sensational performers who have Irish traditional music, song & dance running through their veins. Although still in their 20s and 30s, these performers have achieved more than most people would aspire to in a lifetime. The sound the band creates is best described as eclectic, where traditional Irish music, celtic music, folk music, world music, jazz music, country music and popular music all come together to give rise to a very unique and multi-faceted sound. The Young Irelanders was formed not only to merge the significant creative ideas and talents of a select group of young Irish performers who are unique amongst their peers but also in the hope that given their combined youthfulness and ability, their existence in the music business would act as a catalyst in attracting more young people to the world of traditional Irish music at home in Ireland and through out the world. Non subscribers may purchase a single concert ticket at the front desk in Culpeper County High School before the concert for $25.00 (adult) or $5.00 (student). If the non subscriber is a house guest of a subscriber, the price for a single concert ticket is $10.00 (adult) or $5.00 (student).
